Out of respect and being the only English there other than the boss, I took no pix of the harness/tack shop.

We got to the airport and sure enough, the boss owns a plane. Or so we found out after airport management brought a key that fit the entry door.

We drug out the spring wagon and surrey and loaded it on the trailer.

I noticed that the boss' hanger had a pink bra for a wind sock. Later found out the neighbor hanger is the party house.

Ennywho we got back home unloaded and they hitched the surrey to the horse that can be driven and by that time I was sick of horse stuff and ready to head to Mahogany Ridge. I got to do that after I unhitched the trailer from the boss' pickup.

I know there's serious farming coming up, but then I'm the true part timer but this the kind of crap I do all day most days.

Amish folks prefer not to have their picture taken. They won't raise too much of a stink but it's a religious preference.

The two I work with know I'm kind of snap happy with my phone so they know enough to scram when I'm getting ready.

In these pix I tried not to catch their faces, at least not close up.

They younger guy isn't too bad about it but the older one is a deacon in his church.

Also, just in case it wasn't clear, the Amish refer to anyone not of the order (non-Amish) as "English" regardless of actual nationality/ethnicity.

Yes. We've had several instances where young Aaron will be spinning a drill backwards and I'll tell him so. His instant response is "That's the way Amish turn it, I'm not sure how English turn it." Then I'll have him look at it real hard and he declares his love of crow.

We have very few Amish out here but I learnt a lot from the movie Witness.

I can show you where that was filmed, but don't expect to see many Amish women that look like Kelly McGillis did. :no:
