    Ah! I can envy them in one hand but, for sure, life might be a little bit more complicated!

    Phone shacks are used less and less since cell phones are used more and more.

    Do you think anyone ever confuses them with outhouses? They’re so similar.

    Cell phone usage rates among Amish

    The two settlements where I saw the most evidence of cell phone usage where Lancaster County and Allen County, Indiana. These areas are heavy with small businesses and the cell phone is a convenience that has crept in…I wonder how many feel it to be a necessity nowadays?

    And it’s a tradeoff, isn’t it Emma? I actually quite enjoy the rare occasion when the battery runs out and I’m left without a working cell phone for a day. Peaceful.

    Melissa, as far as confusing the outhouse with the phone box, I have not managed to do that one yet…I can definitely see the possibility though, say on a moonless evening when you’ve just got to go! (:
