    Makes for a nice interesting picture, but not too smart to do I think. Richard

    A caption:
    “The kids heard the English say this was how many people in India use the train system, so the boys thought, hey, why not try it at home on the buggy.”

    Or:
    “The boys wanted air-conditioning on those hot June days.”

    Reminds me of filling a car to capacity, and someone riding home on the trunk over the field roads. Or sitting on the tailgate of a pickup. We didn’t drive any faster than walking speed.

    “The Amish attempting a Chinese fire drill.”

    I knoW I’m dating myself here but this prank was done in both high school and college where the adolescent driver stops at a red light and yells “Chinese fire drill” and everyone gets out of the car and runs around it as many times as they think they can and then get back into the car before the light turns green. I never really understood what it meant until just now, when I looked it up on wikipedia. I remember doing this a lot as I was the youngest in my crowd and didn’t have my license yet.

      Amish fire drill

      Galen I remember hearing about the Chinese fire drill but don’t think I or friends were ever brazen enough to try in adolescent days. No idea why it was Chinese and not say Mexican or Dutch or even my native Polish :)

        I could think of a few jokes as to what a “Polish Fire Drill” would be but I’ll refrain 😉

      Comment on Lance, I thought of this (June 22nd, 2012 at 12:09)

      Lance, I thought of this

      I thought of this scripture in reply to your comment:
      Proverbs 25:24

      It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman in a whole house.

      Were you borrowing from that?

    ‘Yeah, when Big Bertha started singing “it’s getting hot in here, I wanna, I wanna take my clothes off” I decided surely this would be a better place to be’

    But all kidding aside, what a HORRIBLE place to be. I mean a buggy’s center of gravity is high to start with and that isn’t going to help one bit. Not to mention if they fall off they are headed right in the path of the wheels. Better to be sitting with legs dangling off the back where there are no wheels to run over you. Although Big Bertha singing Nelly lyrics might drive any sane person to the buggytop :)

    Question from California

    Love your site. I drive miniature horses in our little town. 1. Is there some place close to Southern California who sells used carts and Wo offers Wheel repair? I have 7 disabled kids and am building a therapy ranch for the disabled.

    That’s right…..it does remind one of India. I now wish that after I took the picture, that I would have turned around and followed the buggy to get more information….

    And Sandy…I know G & S Horse Cart Co. makes all sizes of carts for small, medium, and large ponies, and I think they can ship & you assemble. Also, made in America ! Ph: 319-275-4734 or
