Yesterday In Chester County, PA.

Bill and I arrived in Honey Brook all set to start our work on mother’s house around noon. I know that sounds a little late, health but to tell you the truth, buy viagra we just can’t seem to get our butts moving any faster. Actually, here we find that we get quite a bit accomplished if we work until around 4 in the afternoon. While I was up there, I thought I would take advantage of being so close to the Hoovers, a Menonnite family. I always like to stop by and see if they have anything I would like to buy for my store. We always pass this gorgeous view of the farmland along rt. 322. I think I have taken photos of this scene in every season. It’s one of my favorite sites.

Stoltzfus is a very common name seen in the Chester County area. I love this old sign.

On my way to the Hoover’s house, I passed these Amish clothes, blowing in the cold air.

I thought they were worthy of a picture. I love those long black socks. I stopped by the side of the road to take this photo, and I took it through my windshield. Can you imagine what the lady of the house would have thought, if she saw me taking a photo of her laundry! Maybe she did. Maybe you think I’m crazy too!

Wish I had some to sell in my store. I don’t know, but there is something about the Amish people that just fascinate me. Which reminds me, I have to show you the over 100 year old Amish man’s jacket. It’s wonderful. All handmade. Inside there are the hand stitched initials of the man that once wore it.

It took about 25 minutes to get to Hoover’s farm. When I walked into their workshop, on the floor was a box with 4 little puppies inside. Momma was sitting on the chair next to it. Laura walked in the door with her two children. She allowed me to take their photo with the pups. Aren’t they cute? Oh, I guess you are wondering what kind of puppies they are. Half pug and half jack russell. The mother is the jack russell. Kind of an unusual combo, don’t you think?

    Oh Carole, you brought back some good memories when you posted that sign
    on 322 in Bird in Hand for I used to work as front desk clerk at the
    BIH Family Inn. The motel it really is but when we answered the phone it was always the inn.
    Thanks,
    Jane
