In Muscatine on Sunday June 3, 1951, Dale wrote, “Day of rest.  Stayed in house all day.  Kids played in the back yard.  Built fire in furnace.  56° at bedtime.  Washed on kitchen wall a little.  Wrote card to Mother.  TV good.”  Our furnace burned coal, so this required shoveling lumps of coal into the furnace and starting the fire with newspaper.
