    My husband and I were on a trip to the RV MAPS convention about 15 years ago and we broke down in our motor home. The Lord really blessed us as we had some dear military friends we were able to get in touch with. They invited us to come stay with them’For almost a month we stayed with them in Kenosha WI. While we were there we went to an Amish Furniture store where they had ordered a table and benches. While we waited we looked around and bought a few things. One of the items was a jar or cherry butter. I had never heard of it and we put it up for when we got ready to continue our trip. I was sorry I had put it away as we loved it and I could never find it again. I don’t know if this is available anywhere but I would love to get some if it is.
    I know this is for comments, but I thought this may be the only chance I get to ask a question so many people see. We have so many favorites out of the Amish cookbooks I have gotten, but nothing beats the cherry butter.Thanks for listening. I’ll watch for comments. Blessings Jodi

    I am so jealous of your train ride! I have the “railroad wanderlust” gene too. My grandfather was a depot agent in a tiny town in South Dakota. He would take us to the depot and let us play with the telegraph. I remember standing out in a field of sunflowers waving at the trains as they went by. Would love to spend the rest of my life riding around on a train – probably not as a hobo tho!

      Thanks, Judi, you paint an idyllic picture of a bygone era….One of these days I’ll get an Amtrak pass, maybe I’ll see you on the rails!

    Living here in Gillette, Wyoming we see trains all of the time. My husband I love it we have both loved trains from an early age. We never tire of seeing them or hearing them. The first house we lived in when we moved to Wyoming was on a block away from the tracks. It was an area where many trains couples or uncoupled when this happens it is very loud but we grew to love that sound. One might think it would be difficult to live let alone sleep with noise going on at all hours but it never really bothers us. For my husband Jeff and I the love of trains has a lot to do with nostalgia but also large amount of wanderlust. Now it brings images of a slower simpler time and we would love nothing more than to spend our golden years riding the rails where they would take us.

      Ah, sounds wonderful, Grace. One of these days I’ll get an Amtrak pass, perhaps our paths will one day cross on a train!
