Locked garage

Locked garage

Handwritten page of a diary dated September 22, 1978

after grandma died. We did finish cleaning out her house but nobody knew the combination of the lock on the garage, so we left that all summer. None of us had ever been allowed in there and after finding so much bizarre stuff in the house we were almost afraid I think.

Then somebody said we HAVE TO get in there and clean it out so we can sell the house and split the money. So Jerry brought over a power saw and cut through the lock.

Only four things were in there!

Real leather boxing gloves hanging from the rafter

A box of Doris Day records

A box full of board games. All Chutes and Ladders. Looks like from the late 1940s. Never used.

And da da da da — a 1951 Nash Rambler convertible. Spotless. Probably worth more than her house
