Dicks Grandfather and great uncle were railroad executives during the golden age of railroads which is why they got to sw Kansas with the resources to put together the Anchor D. Dicks Dad was put on the board of one of the big railroads at a very young age compared to the other board members. He missed one of the meetings and at the next meeting was criticized for being absent. He asked what he had missed? One of the other members said there had been a derailment and killed 5000 of some old farmers sheep. Robbins said "Those were my sheep!" Nothing more was said.
