My Dad and His Favorite Females -- Post 655 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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

The persons in this photograph are (from left), Betty V. (Carringer) Seaver (my mother), Frederick W. Seaver (my father) and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (my paternal grandmother, Fred's mother). At this time, Betty was age 39, Fred was age 46, and Bess was age 76.

This picture was taken in the summer of 1958 when my grandmother, her daughter (Evelyn (Seaver) Wood), Evelyn's husband (Walter H. Wood) and Evelyn's granddaughter (Diana) visited San Diego. The setting was in the back yard of the Marshall and Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain home at 4601 Terrace Drive in San Diego. Dorothy was the daughter of Emily (Richmond) Taylor, Alma Bessie's sister.

This may have been one of the happiest days in my father's life.  All was good - a beautiful wife, three darling and fun little boys, and a well-paying job, plus his mother and older sister came to town.  He had not seen his mother since 1942 when he was married, and would not see her again.

This photo (originally with faded colors) has been enhanced and restored using the MyHeritage photo tools.
