In Muscatine on Saturday, April 15, 1950, Dale’s sister Marie called him out of bed to tell him that she and their mother Jettie were coming from Osceola that day. He wrote, “Arrived about 2 p.m. and left around 5 p.m. Nice visit but short.”
Hello - I am Stanley Gardner, the only grandson of Jettie Short (above, feeding her farm chickens in 1946) and Williams Gardner. They also had six grand-daughters. This blog is a series of date-related excerpts from Dad's diaries, with selected photos or other visual aids.
