“When I was a kid growing up in Henderson County, Texas, it was quite a treat to go to the cattle auction in Athens. It was quite a treat to go anywhere!
Several times a year we would take calves or cull cows to the sale. There were some men I saw every time I went. Some were order buyers, some were traders and some were sweaters (men who came just to socialize.) These men were part of the great generation and some stood out more than others.
