it is about my great-grandparents George & Anna.
George came to America with his parents at age 6, in 1884.
George became a trapeze artist with Ringling Bros. Circus in the late 1890's!!
He wanted to marry Anna but Anna's father wouldn't hear of it.
"No daughter of mine is going to marry a circus transient. You need to get a real job and take care of her!"
So George quit the circus life and became a cabinetry carpenter. He was allowed to marry Anna. They had one child, my Grandpa. [The one that loved to garden and had rock gardens and a fish pond; read my post dated 6-4-07, titled "Today In My Gardens"]
