(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 245: The Honeymooners Return

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:

The people in this photograph are (from left to right):

*  Linda (Leland) Seaver - my bride
*  Randy Seaver - moi, age 26
*  Emily (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977) - my maternal grandmother
*  Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976) - my maternal grandfather

The occasion is, I think, a family get-together after our honeymoon to Acapulco in March 1970, at my grandparents home on Point Loma in San Diego.  We look happy and tanned (well, Linda tans, I burn).  My grandparents were so happy that I had married Linda - they were really special to both of us.  

I just noticed that Linda has bare feet.  And Lyle is wearing a tie.  Not me... I have no idea what we're drinking - Emily always served Squirt, but I think Linda has a diet Coke (she always has a diet Coke!).

The photo was probably taken by my mother or father.  It was taken in the living room of the Carringer home, facing the southwest wall.  The red mark above Emily's head was on the photograph before I scanned it.

Great photo, Randy. Is there ever a time when Linda isn't tan? She always looks like she just came back from a beach vacation when I see her at conferences. Like you, I burn, too.

Love your blog - but diet Coke didn't appear until 1982!
