hot air balloon amish farmI took this photo of a farm in Lancaster County a couple days ago. At first glance, it seems like a normal farm–you’ve got a barn, silo, picket fence…but something seems a bit off here. Hmm. I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Your ideas (or captions) on what’s going on in this photo are welcome.

In other news, we got in a Life on the Farm rematch last night at an Amish farming friend’s home.

Our previous game had ended in a 68-68 cow tie between me and my friend’s 5th grader. He delivered the coup de grace, however, by accidentally–or is that “accidentally”–knocking a full glass of water over into my lap.  The table roared with laughter, and yes that included me.  Luckily I had a spare change of pants in the truck.

I’m heading home to NC today and looking forward to plugging back in, so to speak.
