(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 248: Brothers Ed and Fred in 1981

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 is a photograph of one of my best-ever family history memories.  Two brothers - my father, Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983) and Edward Seaver (1913-2004) - sharing a laugh together at my parents home in about 1981.  

I can't remember and have always wondered what was said by Ed to make my father laugh so hard with his eyes closed!  Perhaps it was about the "golden glow" from their childhood.  I don't think Ed goosed him, but I wouldn't put it past him!

They are in front of the fireplace in the living room of the Carringer/Seaver home at 825 Harbor View Place on Point Loma in San Diego (built by Lyle and Emily Carringer, my grandparents, and then owned by my parents after Lyle and Emily died).  

This was the last time that the brothers got together.  Ed and his wife, Janet, lived in Leominster, Massachusetts at this time, but moved later in the 1980's to Sun Lakes, Arizona.

I can't help thinking that both of these guys were about my present age...
