Grandpa And Randy in 1945 -- Post 664 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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

This photograph is from about 1945, and that is me (about age 2) happily riding piggyback on my grandfather, Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976).  I imagine that playing with me was one of the most fun things he did during World War II, since I was the only grandchild at the time.  I  know I loved all the attention from my grandparents since my father was in the U.S. Navy and my mother was teaching school.  My grandmother was my caregiver those first two years and surely told my grandfather to play with me while she prepared dinner.  

This photograph was originally black-and-white and I colorized it and enhanced using the MyHeritage InColor photo tools.
