Hunter Durham: Drove team and wagon to Coomer's

Hunter Durham writes:
When I was about 10 or 11, one of the many times i spent down at Lawrence & Ella Gilpins, We got the mules (Red and Frances) and hitched to a wagon with a brake by timber, and I drove the team with the help of Uncle Lawrence. We rode the wagon down to the store at Coomers, got some BB's, a six pack of pop and some nails. What a great adventure. I tried to plow some with these mules and instead of being in a straight line, I ended up way to right and about 10 yards away from the line. Boy did Uncle Lawrence get a laugh out of that. - Hunter Durham
