100% Amish

I liked this recent nugget from The Budget (thanks to Linda for passing it along):

From Guys Mills, PA, written by Dorothy Hershberger:

Later that afternoon my parents and I went to David Bylers’ (sister Betty) in Conneautville and returned home the next day. Davids are in the process of selling their year-old puppy. While in a conversation by phone of an interested buyer, the guy asked if they’d be able to deliver the dog to his place. When Betty mentioned that they are Amish, he let out a long drawn out, “Ohhh!” and asked, “full blooded?”

      100% Amish

      It reminds me of what my Mom use to say for things like that: It takes square people to make the world go around.

      That’s where Guy’s Mills is and Conneautville! Nice to read posts about folks near my old hometown (Meadville, PA).

      Why is it SO often that when outsiders come to join the Amishthey are usually not satisfied being right like the rest of the community they want to join,,,,but seem to go 200 percent Amish,,,,and so often even want to control the others who do not believe exactly the way they do,???
      plus the sad part of it was the fact that several of them could not even give a testimony of being a Christian,,,or accepting Jesus into their lives….
