....I get an email from Holly Ferguson, Roger Ferguson's daughter. Many of you might remember I posted about Roger, owner of Roger's Appliances in Flemington, passing away this past spring. I can't say enough good things about Roger, absolutely the greatest guy and also my wife's cousin, btw. Anyway, Holly tells me while going thru her dad's effects she found some trophies that my dad had given him in the past and did I want them? Hell yeah I wanted them! I never even knew Dad had given them to Roger but I thought it was cool he thought enough of Roger that he would give them to him and Roger would keep and display them in his office.
So I stopped in at the store Sunday before the Flemington Dept Store race car gathering (both businesses occupy the same building). Holly had them waiting for me and obviously they need some attention, but I thought I'd post some pics here. One of them is the NJ 100 trophy from Flemington...I wondered where that one went! I'm gonna puff that one up and give it to my grandson so his mother can dust it, lol. Anyway, they were a Comeback of the Year for 1975 and a driver points trophy...not a terribly big deal but nice memories anyway...thanks for reading!
