Vince is back from the trip to pick up wood. It was an adventure for him. He said there were a bunch of little Amish children running around outside and they all knew Chad. They came running up to him and the older kids carried on conversations with him. Vince said their house was right behind the sawmill. The women were out hanging clothes on the line. Vince said one of the guys was talking to Chad. Don’t know what they were talking about and the guy said “Do you know they have cars now that you can start just by pushing a button?” Vince said “They don’t have a clue what goes on in the world!” I told him . . they’re better off than those of us who know at least what the news tells us we should believe.
Vince thought it was hilarious that even the little kids at the mill knew Chad. He’s such a friendly, outgoing guy.
Chad and Vince went and ate. Chad has four or five friends that get together every Friday for lunch so Vince went along and ate with the guys, then he and Chad went to a flea market or two.
I thought Chad would come here and unload the wood but since they’re coming tomorrow, he left it on his pickup and will bring it tomorrow. Dang it . . I was hoping to get to see him.
Living near the Amish and Mennonties definitely provides some advantages with their sawmills and veggie/fruit farms, and beef.
