Most farms have at least 2 houses. The grandparents give the big house to the children when they start having children and build themselves a "dawdy" house near the bigger house.
Gas was much cheaper there than it is here. When we left we drove about 3 hours west before starting home (south) and actually bought gas for 1.74. Here it is still 2.25. I figure this amish guy was parking his buggy here to laugh at all us having to fill up.
One thing I noticed was the large amount of toilet paper strung from the trees, signs and buildings in one town. I'm not sure whether English boys did it or some Amish teens in their Rumspringer were out playing some tricks. I also noticed that a couple of Amish women who were running shops were on the phone all morning. They don't have phones at home but as soon as they get to work they talk and talk. Most talk in their native German mix so you can't understand but they throw some English in too.
Saturday there was one room open in our hotel. I later heard the office clerk tell someone a couple of Amish boys had come and rented it so they could watch the Ohio State game. I guess even during Rumspringer they have good taste.
Now I am off to take some Ibuprofen and get under some blankets to try to hide from this creeping crud I feel trying to overtake my body. Have a great week!
