(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 264: Practicing for the Next Day

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

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection passed to me by my mother, or taken by Linda or me in the 1970s:
 




This is a photograph of my bride-to-be, Linda Leland (left) carefully drinking champagne from the unsteady hand of the nervous bridegroom-to-be, moi, on Friday, 20 March 1970.  The setting is the home of my grandparents, Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer, at the family dinner following the wedding rehearsal.

We didn't practice the "cake-stuffing," which turned out to be a mistake.  

We were much younger then...and had more hair...and had hopes and dreams about the future together.  It's worked out pretty well!
