While most of the farmers in the community of my childhood grew cotton, other crops were grown, too. A field of milo was usually planted by Tommy Thompson across the road north of our house. The field east of our house was usually corn planted by Tommy's brother, Floyd. Another brother lived west of our place about a kilometer. His name was Buford but he raised more sheep than crops. The road's name was and is Thompson Lane.
