Final Farm Visit

On Saturday, August 12, 1950, Dale wrote, “Stan, Dalene and I left Muscatine at 3 p.m. for Osceola, got there at 6:45.  Rain part of way.  Called Helen.  Visited with folks at night.”  Dad and Dalene drove back to Muscatine the next day, but I stayed at my grandparents’ farm for the next three weeks for the last time – my grandfather Williams McBain Gardner died on December 16.  Above: Grandpa and I give fresh milk to some barn cats that summer.
