QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS:
Hi Tom: Thanks for the diversion. I think my first tennis racket came from Mayham and Silvers. It was a sporting goods store, right? If not -- I'm undergoing more memory loss. Regards
Indeed it was, Sally. Fred Kuser went there to have his tennis racquets re-strung and also to buy "Wright-Ditson" tennis balls.Tom
HI TOM...MAYHEM & SILVERS WAS LIKE GOING TO HEAVEN FOR SPORTING GOODS. WHEN I WAS SELECTED TO PLAY FOR THE SCHROTHS IN 1936, I HAD A TORN GLOVE, WORN OUT BASEBALL SHOES AND NEVER HAD A UNIFORM. I HAD MY PICK OF THE BEST EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE AND REALLY APPRECIATED IT. FOR A 15 YEAR OLD KID, IT WAS LIKE HITTING THE JACKPOT, BEST REGARDS.
When I saw Mr Kuser on the beach in Cocoa FLA, I don't remember the tire on the back of his woody. I went over to say hi and let him know I was from Trenton and that I was in the AF working on the Apollo Program. It was nice to talk to someone from HOME...Trenton. I still remember the old brownie camera, with electrical tape on it, I think. Ron
