(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 243: Christmas Dinner, 1967

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection passed to me by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This picture was taken on Christmas, 1967 in the dining room of the Seaver home at 2119 30th Street in San Diego.  I'm pretty sure that my father took the picture (because he is not in the picture, and he would be at this dinner).

The persons in the picture are, from left to right:

*  Scott, my youngest brother, age 12 at the time
*  Betty (Carringer) Seaver, my mother, age 48 at the time
*  Lyle Carringer, my grandfather, age 76 at the time
*  Emily (Auble) Carringer, my grandmother, age 68 at the time
*  Randy Seaver, moi, age 24 at the time

This is one of the few three-generation pictures I have with my mother and grandparents.  

I don't have many pictures from this time frame, mainly because we didn't take many.  I sure didn't!  That would change, of course, after I met Linda in 1968.  I sure didn't know what the future held at this time in my life.  I had just been employed again after 6 months of unemployment, and that decision dramatically affected the course of my life.

Especially nice when there are few from the period... I love the intergenerational photos - 3 or 4 generations.
