A Bit Of The Old Days..

On my way to work a few days ago I came across this scene. A bit of nostalgia harkening back to a simpler time when man and beast had a more intimate connection to the land..


You don't see this much anymore..


But it's nice to see that it still exists...

  5. We have a large community of Amish to the south of us, and always love driving through there. Do quite a bit of shopping there, too. Love to see them doing things the old way. Tugs at you a little.
