We have a small Amish settlement a few miles from town. It's not unusual to see a horse and buggy going around town. They especially like going to yard sales. On weekends when the sales are going on you'll likely see three of four of them in town. But I digress. My blog is about one particular buggy. One afternoon while I was at work a pickup truck pulling a trailer with an Amish buggy on it pulled into the lot. The driver came in and asked me where I wanted him to put the buggy. Knowing nothin

I've just returned from a six day trip to Alabama! My daughter and her husband moved down there as he has a new job there. I rode down in the moving van, (front seat, not in the back!), and Sue rode down in the car following the truck.

My wife and I attended a 50th. wedding anniversary party a couple of weeks ago. I took my trusty Kodak with me. I shot several pictures before my batteries (which had been used for several shots before) died. I replaced the batteries but the camera wouldn't work. I took the batteries out and replaced with some other new ones I had. The camera still refused to work. I told my wife that it looked like buying another camera was in the offing. "You're not buying another camera. Let me see the darne
