The Hollywood teacher, Mrs. Lena Mae Sanders' husband did drive a bus at
Hollywood, but his name was Milton and I don't remember anyone calling him
Buck or him driving at Fackler.

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.
