Rochelle Louridge singing outside the ol’ Burgeron trailer.
We’re not sure, but another old photo has emerged from the depths of the Burgeron Family archives. We think this might be Rochelle Louridge, the current CEO of GIFaChrome playing her 12-string guitar outside of the ol’ Burgeron trailer. There’s a rumor floating around that this recording might actually be of her singing the Burgeron Trailer Blues.
(A few links if you’d like to read more about GIFaChrome’s history and a prized photo on their CEO’s desk that was riffed unmercifully .)

Well all be… a box of family photos was found at the Burgeron place the other day. We’re not sure who’s who in these snapshots. There were no captions on the back, only the name Louridge on the box. Anybody recognize a face, location or event? And I’m sure there must be more family photos out there. How about posting them to the site so the rest of us can take a look?
There was another box of much older photos, again without any identifiers. If we can’t figure out who these people are, at the very least we should add a caption or two. Help us out here. The comments section is a great place to leave your input.
