Randy and Grandpa Having Fun in 1945 -- Post 544 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Recently, I discovered an envelope of small photographs saved when my mother died in 2002 - it was hiding in plain sight in the Genea-Cave! 

Included in the photo cache was this oldie-but-goodie - Randy and grandfather Lyle Carringer in the  having fun in 1945:

This is another photo of me and my grandfather - it was probably a weekend at home in San Diego, probably in the back yard.  He is concentrating on keeping a firm hold on my legs because I'm not holding on to his shirt much.  

As I mentioned last week, in 1945 my father was in the U.S. Navy and my mother and I were living with my grandparents, Lyle and Emily Carringer at 2130 Fern Street.  Emily took care of me, at age two, all day, and I'm sure that Lyle (age 54 in 1945) got the weekend duty.  I think he enjoyed it.  I was probably spoiled at this age, but it bonded me to this set of grandparents forever.  

I have done this same thing with all five of my grandchildren and they all loved being on my back and going around the house or back yard.
