Randy and Lyle in the Garden in 1945 -- Post 645 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

 I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photo was taken in about 1945 in the cornfield at the Lyle Carringer home in San Diego.  That's me as a one or two--year-old toddler holding a doll of some sort with my maternal grandfather, Lyle Carringer (1891-1976).  It was about this time that my father was in the U.S. Navy, and my mother and I were living with the Carringers.   Lyle worked all week at the department store downtown and did house and garden work on the weekends, so I was probably "helping" him in the yard.  It also gave my grandmother a break from taking care of me during the week.  

This photo (originally black and white) has been enhanced and colorized using the MyHeritage photo tools.
