Re: just wondering if this was true??

Way back when I was there, there were cars & school busses & a couple of pickups that were used on the farm. Yes MCH had a farm then & a ranch. The older boys could drive the pickups but only to run farm errands. Only certain of the office staff could drive the cars. They all had their own as well. Office staff (men) drove the school busses also....Mazie
