    She is right about comfortable seats. Never know what you will see when wandering around.
    We are going to NC in Sept with a side trip to Etheridge, TN. Looking forward to see the Amish community.

    Kevin, I am surprised the car seats are permitted. You would think it would not conform with their plain and simple philosophy.

      Hi Diann!! It’s Farmhouse Barb a.k.a. Barb Wright..back online after nearly a year. I have posted a couple things,glad to see you’re still here! See you soon!!

      1. Diann B.

        Hi Barb! So glad you are back! I’ve missed you. Hope you are doing well. How’s your dad? I lost my sister (the one I had told you about) last month. It’s been very difficult, but I am trying to move forward one day at a time. Great to “see” you!! 🙂

        Diann,so sorry about your sister. We had to put Dad in a nursing home..last Labor day,he fell and broke his hip. He never really recovered from it. He will be 84 on 9/11. I think he is giving up..he doesn’t talk much when I visit. As you say,one day at a time. On a lighter note,we have another grandson! He is 2 weeks old and adorable!!(Brag,brag!!) That brings the total to 7!! Lots of little ones to spoil!!

    My husband and I lived in the Cadillac, MI area when the Amish began to move to Manton. A husband and wife who attended our church lived right by the farms and saw mill the Amish actually ran. The little church they bought was on the same road our friend lived on and we would see it everytime we would go to visit them. One of the unusual things about that group of Amish was the fact they had a church building and did not have church in their homes. Outside people were welcomed to attend as well. When the husband, of our friends passed, she sold their property to the Amish and moved to Cadillac.

    How ingenious!! It always amazes me that something we take for granted is special to the Amish..I’d bet those seats were someone else’s junk!!

    I wonder if the seats recline? It sure does look comfortable!

    We vacationed in the Goshen Indiana area a couple of weeks ago and saw the same thing-didn’t have my camera out in time tho, bummer! Also saw another wagon with 2 rows of van seats! Another unusual thing we saw was a horse drawn bush hog mower-the round type-I coudn’t see it close enough but seems like it would have had to have a motor to run the round blade? hubby zoomed by to fast and i couldn’t tell! That area of amish are quite a bit different from PA and OH and out here in KS!
