Is That Cake on My Face? -- Post 351 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:

Well, i'm glad she didn't get the cake on my suit!  She got it on my left cheek though, and it looks like i'm a bit exasperated with the aim of my hitherto perfect bride.  The cake was good once I got my own piece of it.  It was a fun party - I got to meet many of Linda's aunts, uncles and cousins.

This picture was take in April 1970 at Linda's parents home in San Francisco (1726 47th Avenue in the Sunset district to be exact).  We were married on 21 March, and went to Acapulco for our honeymoon, and several weeks later we flew to San Francisco for a wedding reception at Linda's parents home.  

Since I tried really hard to be a nice husband, I managed to get the small piece of cake entirely in Linda's mouth on the first try.  Then she dabbed my cheek with the squishy mess in her left hand.  Oh well, life goes on.  My motto then, as it is now, was "Life is short - eat dessert first."
