Sometimes I have photos but they don't really go with a post, but they are still kind of interesting. So what to do? I guess I'll just sort of offer them a photo "mash-up"
The first image is of a canning closet at an Amish home in St. Ignatius, Montana. I always enjoy looking in other people's canning cupboards. This was the home of an elderly couple, so they didn't have a ton of food, but this was plenty to last them the cold winter!
And speaking of St. Ignatius, the next photo is of the church meetinghouse and school. This settlement is New Order Amish. The church uses horse and buggies, but they are a bit more progressive in some other ways. Wouldn't you love to attend church with these mountains as a backdrop?!
Let's zip back across the country. This is a funeral near Berne, Indiana, just a mass of buggies out in a field as people head to pay their respects.
And zipping back south, this is Beachy Amish Mennonite author, Sherry Gore, standing outside the Amish church in Pinecraft.
Heading back north, to the Conewango Valley of New York, "whoopie pies" for 75 cents. You really can't beat that price! I see them in many Amish stores for $1, sometimes as high as $3 for craft, specialty whoopies. So .75 cents, I should have grabbed a dozen!
