    My Old Order Mennonite Friends have a horse drawn wagon that comes around and picks up the children for school. They kiddingly call it the horse bus. For this picture how about the horse cab?

    Hey, Wait For Me!

    Strasburg is one of our very favorite places and our first choice when we start that search for our retirement in Lancaster County. I have dreams of living right outside of town and being able to stroll in whenever I want to! I think my husband would really enjoy being a volunteer at the rail road.

    Where's the SMV triangle?

    In an instance like this, he oughta slap the SMV triangle on his back, rather than block it…you know, for safety’s sake. :) (Maybe a helmet would be wise, too, but it’s probably too English.)

    Thank you to all the above posts

    A great big thank you to all of the above posts!!!
    With everything black, I had a difficult time seeing the contrast of the man and the buggy. Everyone else’s sharper eyes & wonderful descriptive captions helped me clarify what I was supposed to be seeing. Thanks again to the Amish America community of friends!
    Great shot, Erik. Dumb question, the tag-along’s hat looks a little English to me….any chance that’s you? 😀

    From the other comments, I like Tagalong, Back-seat driver, and Big Brother is watching!

    Thanks for the fun, Erik! Some of the sayings below are from the book, POPULAR PROVERBS & SAYINGS, by Titelman.

    Reuben’s Last Stand.
    Standing Room Only.
    Where’s the horse?
    Extra! Extra!
    Johnny Jump-Up.
    Johnny come lately.
    She’ll be comin’ round the mountain.
    If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
    Here I stand. I can do no other.
    Stand on your own two feet.
    Stand up and be counted.
    Stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.
    A journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step.
    Slow and steady wins the race.
    There’s no such thing as a free ride?
    I have a dream.
    Take it easy.
    There’s always a first time for everything.
    United we stand.
    What goes up, must come down.
    I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes.
    And miles to go before I sleep.
    Give him an inch, and he will take a mile.
    Let’s get the show on the road.
    Hold your horses.
    The end justifies the means.
    Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
    Let’s get America moving again.
    Would you buy a used car from this man?
    Living on the Edge.
    Behind every great man…
    The Carriage Whisperer.
    Don’t put the cart before the horse.
    He’s On.
    One-upped.
    Not holding on to his hat.
    All around the town.
    Out-of-pocket.
    Hand free.
    Feet first.
    No turning back.
    The tail end.

    More from me

    “Samuel’s idea to have a sweet stereo system for his Rumspringa ride didn’t work so well, especially since Isaac had a singing voice like a frog”

    “Dad was strict about monitoring his daughters’ courtship activities, maybe too much so”

    “This brings old meaning to rumble seat!”

    “On the bright side, dear, he provides a reasonably cheap security system for the buggy”

    “Bishop Ira too the idea of ‘looking out for ones flock’ a little too far”
