Cool Sleeping Porch

In Muscatine on Tuesday, July 17, 1951, Dale wrote, “8 hours annual leave.  Helen & I washed.  I went to the store.  Bright & hot today.  Family to library at night.  Slept on back porch tonight, 1st time this summer.”  We had no air conditioning, but our house had a big screened-in porch good for evening breezes.
