Title The Piano and the Circus
Description the Frandaens watched the tents come down, the animals put back in their cages, and the long procession wend its way back to the railroad station headed for its next engagement. When they finally crawled, exhausted, into their beds, sleep evaded them-pleasantly so, there was much to savor in their thoughts and dreams. Slowly the temporary villages disappeared, too, leaving behind piles of food, apple peelings, potato peelings, and one large pile of beans; Willard's pigs had food for days. The children searched the ground for nickels and pennies; they had memories to last them a lifetime, Willard and Bothilda no longer worried about the payment for that year; it was taken care of. But what about next year? Willard Lauritz and Bothilda Johanna Hansen Frandsen, both children of first settlers in Mt. Pleasant, were grandparentb of the author. The atory of the piano and the circus-es well as many other stories savored by the author-were told her by her grandmother. Many of these memories were also gleaned from the author's aunt, Talula Frandsen Nelson, of Mt. Pleasant. Concerning the reference to Bothilda1s "tiny feet," as an adult she wore a size 5i shoe. John Hasler, prominent musician in Mt. Pleasant followed Bothilda's father, Janes Hansen, from about 1869 ont providing Music for all occasions. ¦49-
