In Muscatine on Friday, June 22, 1951, Dale wrote, “Worked 8 to 4:30. Hayes left today, been here since May 15th. Lela called Helen to see if Stanley could go to Osceola, Helen called Marie & it’s OK. Rainy today. Baumgardner made me a muffler patch. TV at night.” I was visiting Gene and Lela (Helen’s sister) Yates; Marie (Dale’s sister) kept an eye on the health of my grandmother Jettie, who I would visit.
