1954 Christmas in San Diego -- Post 648 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 was my favorite Christmas in 1954.  This was the year that brother Stan and I got Davy Crockett coonskin caps and Daisy BB guns.  In the photo, we are aiming up the hill (Lucinda Street) and I'm sure the BB guns are not loaded...I think my grandmother took the picture.  

The photo includes (clockwise) my grandfather (Lyle L. Carringer), my mother (Betty (Carringer) Seaver, my father (Frederick W. Seaver), my brother Stan, and me (aiming from my left shoulder because I am left-handed and my left eye is the better eye).  

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

Nice memory. I cannot imagine a Christmas with warm weather & green plants growing. We live in New York State & here it is all about snow.
