    When is the Brownfield High School reunion?

    My maiden name is Neugent. As a family we moved to Brownfield, from Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1945. The Irland Faught family moved from Oklahoma in the 30's. My husband went to school in Union,Texas. Billy went into the Army in 1952, and retired at 24 years of active duty. Billy and I married in Brownfield in 1957. We have 6 children to our union and 17 grandchildren. We are now living in a small community named Lexington, Oklahoma.

    I have many memories of the brown clouds forming, which demanded we get the clothes off the clothesline and tie down any lose things that may be blown away. Walking home from school with a thin headscarf over our heads to keep the sand out of our eyes. We weren't allowed to wear blue jeans those day's. So, the sand would beat against the back of our legs. During very cold days, we were allowed to wear blue Jeans under our dresses. My, how things have changed. Bill is now 74, I am 68. Thanks - Vera Neugent Faught, May 10, 2006
