Charles Robinett writes: I recall in the early and mid 1960’s going to Pittman’s Machine Shop in Benevolence with my father Dean Robinett to have machine work done for equipment used in the furniture factory in Shellman. After all these years I can see Mr. Wyatt now working a turn lathe and actually hear the voice as he and Daddy talked. What a walk down memory lane this is.

    Just as Charles would go with his father I went with both my granddad Cecil Lumpkin and my dad Norman Lumpkin to Benevolence to Pittman’s to take or pickup machinery that was being repaired or parts being made for them. As a young kid I was fascinated with the lathes and different saws cutting metal and the beehive of activity as they conducted their day to day business. I still see Joe Pittman at breakfast when I get the occasion to drop into Cuthbert. He has a wealth of knowledge that should not be lost.
