      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.
