In Osceola on Thursday, April 8, 1971, Dale wrote, “Clear, windy, and 77°. Helen and I were in Muscatine all night last night. Drove around town, left at 11 a.m. We drove to Osceola via Indianola for goat milk. Derby for supper. Our new riding mower was here when we got home, in the driveway.” This picture is from 1986, several riding mowers later, after they moved to State Street in Osceola.
