    Had a successful trip to my first Amish Auction today. We loaded up our car with 55 medium size pumpkins to donate to our education foundation event. What an interesting experience. Mostly male Amish there. Some children. I observed a few younger boys wore black jeans. The shirts the men wore varied and some were store bought. All but one had buttons. A couple four year old girls wore dresses, aprons and bonnets – they were not color coordinated for sure! Lots of men didn’t have beards but there was lots of “5 o’clock shadow” on their faces. I didn’t try to initiate speaking to the Amish men. I was standing near by a bunch of them and they sure spoke amongst themselves but none of them even gave me a friendly glance. There were two women working the check in and check out area. I spoke with one of them and she was very friendly. This auction is in Highland County Ohio. Now that I see it is a pretty and easy drive I may begin attending regularly next summer so I can become a regular and get to know the people.
