Randy and his Dad in 1943 -- Post 552 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Several months ago, 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 - a photograph of my father holding me as a baby:

This photograph was probably taken in late 1943 or early 1944 since I look like an infant in this photograph.  My farther was dressed in a coat and tie, so this photograph may have been taken at Christmas 1943.  

The photograph was taken in the back yard of the Marshall and Dorothy Chamberlain home at 4601 Terrace Drive in the Kensington neighborhood of San Diego.  We visited the Chamberlains as a family every year at Christmas time.  The back yard had the swinging couch with the striped awning for decades.

Today's thought:  I wonder if my father was telling me "You know, I have an extensive New England colonial ancestry - please work on my genealogy!"
