      There was a man by the name of Buck Sanders which
      drove the bus when I started school in Fackler. Is
      Buck and Judson the same man, or if memory serves Buck
      was the husband of Mrs Sanders?
      Thanks for mentioning Gibson's Rolling Store. I had
      forgotten about it. I rember how sad we were when the
      rolling store stopped making rounds.
