    Great Photos

    Oh these are very good! Thanks for sharing. Especially like the one with the little boy and his father (?)on the work wagon. So cute, and the little boy is learning a farming chore. I also enjoy learning about the different districts and seeing photos!

    Great pictures. Just makes me wish I was there. I am from Ontario and we are getting more and more Mennonites moved to this area. Which is great. Keep those pictures coming.

    I always enjoy the photos you send. I think that little guy’s boots were bigger than him:) I’ll be in Lancaster this week too, Erik. Who knows, maybe we’ll cross paths:)

    I was especially taken with the shadow of the windmill on the barn—like a ghost (I’d like to paint it on to keep it there permanently…don’t know why).

    Thanks for the photos, Adair! I enjoyed each one.

      Thank you, Alice MAry. I like that shadow one, too, although I didn;t know if anyone else would.

    Peace In the Valley

    This takes me back to my childhood in the farming area of New York State. I miss it, and all it contained. It is not far from Lancaster County,in PA. where I was born.

    Plain attire Ethridge Amish style

    The men in these pictures don’t look very hard to emulate in terms of plainness, in fact their clothing looks quite off the rack, except for the straw hats. I don’t know about anyone else, but I can dress like them quite easily, including my straw hat.

    In a way, it would be great if they were the standard, but it’s obvious its not always the case, eh?

    Ethridge Photos

    I really enjoy looking at photos of the Amish homesteads, barns, farms, and horses and buggies. The photos are beautiful. I almost feel like I am right there…present in the picture. I especially love the photo of the red barn and the dad and little boy driving the horse-cart. Thanks for sharing these great photos. It is nice seeing photos of different Amish communities.
    Blessings. I hope you are enjoying your stay in PA. It is one of my favorite places:-)

    Amish photos

    I love these photos, these are so beautiful and so filled with real life, not the life of what most people live today. But the living and breathing life of really working hard and seeing what you worked hard for.

    I love pictures of their homes, their barns and their life, Thanks for sharing!

    Basket maker passes on to his great reward

    This past weekend I made one of my regular trips to visit as many friends in the Amish area as I could fit into one weekend. I was saddened to learn that Mr. Mahlon Gingerich had passed away on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. Mr. & Mrs. Gingerich are basket makers and their place is pictured here (5th picture down) with the gray sided shop building. I’m glad I was able to purchase several of his baskets over the years…keepsakes for me, my children & an Easter basket for my grand-daughter. Sweet memories of this man, for sure! This is the 1st time I have ever experienced a death/funeral in all of my years visiting this community. I must say it was a very touching experience. I believe there were very few Amish that didn’t attend the gathering at younger son’s farm next door. I think there were more men, women & children there than I’ve ever saw at one time….and I thought there was a lot at the auctions & sale barn! Such a heartwarming site to see.

      Gingerich basket

      I am surprised to read this as I recently bought a basket signed and dated by him in 2015.
