San Diego Cowboys Randy and Stan -- Post 343 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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

Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Carringer family collection:

The two persons in this photo are:

*  In front, kneeling with the wheelbarrow, big hat with an under-chin tie, and big grin is my brother, Stan.  He was born in 1946.

*  In the background, standing with the big hat, under-chin tie, short pants, and six-shooter on the hip, is me, Randy Seaver, born in 1943.

This picture was taken in about 1950, probably by my mother or my grandfather, Lyle Carringer, looking to the northwest along 30th Street near Hawthorn Street in San Diego.

The two-story apartment house in the center background is directly across the street from where we lived in the second story apartment at 2119 30th Street.  

Stan and I were probably helping my grandfather with the gardening or clearing of the vacant lot at the corner of Hawthorn and 30th.  That was our "playground" where we played ball, flew kites, and chased lizards and bugs, in addition to picking and eating the fruit, vegetables and berries in the garden on the east side of the playground.
