Crazy Quilt

My spouse and I had gone in this restaurant to get a bite to eat and he says to me "Tanna, turn and look behind you".

I turned and look out the window and a couple of the  Amish buggys were going down the street

It seemed so strange to see these on the road just like automobiles.

Lots of them were driven by women.


We got to town just in time for the Tail Gate Festival

There was live entertainment everywhere.

Tyrone and Pat were shopping so, Pop and I decided go on a Buggy Tour.

So off we go.  Now we are the ones in the buggy going down the street with all the automobiles.


As we rode down the road a old woman was  out cleaning some hay from the side of the street which washed out of her barn yard.  She waved at us as we rode by.
This farm is owned by one Amish family.  Note there are no electrical poles and lines going to the house.  The farm looks so clean and fresh, even the roads and streets are clean.



On our tour, we saw the guy cutting down the corn stalks with this huge plow pulled by 5 or 6 horses.

It looked like 6 but could have been only 5, not sure.

This farmer sure did look young to me.

I must not forget the covered bridge we went through.  So pretty,
This young lady  was on the side of the road with this rolling cabinet selling her mothers wares.

Here comes the little one to help his sister.

They had homemade ShooFly pie, Whoopee pies, cookies, fresh bread.

I am thing these are morgan horses which are stronger and can pull these wagons loaded with hay.  The horses are eating the hay off the wagon if front of them.

Another beautiful farm.

So well kept.

These people are shopping in the store.


This was our buggy tour driver and told us so much about the people and customs. This was a very good place to visit and learn more about some good people who are trying to live close to God as they believe.
