Wal Mart and...the Amish....

I took these photos a couple of months ago when I went to WalMart at lunchtime to pick something up.  We see Amish folks all over town and I try not to stare and am getting better at it.  It's just that I've never been around them, and they seem so sweet and I'd love to talk to and get to know some of them.  But I am probably looked on as "English" and probably pretty dangerous.  They are really nice to talk to, I spoke with some ladies at Lowe's one day, they were all excited about the roses I'd picked out and another time in the store, an older lady came in and wanted to know where I got my brown paper bags from, and I ended up just giving her some til she could find a place to get them.  We see them all the time riding around in their buggies or wagons, and often in line at Sonic, getting a large coke.  Seriously!  :)
So this is what I saw when I went to Walmart:

I didn't get a photo of it but WalMart has also put out a big black watering trough for the horses, too!  And I was kind of surprised to see a grey horse, usually we only see bay or black horses.

  1. How way cool! Always amazed that they can still manage to exist in today's world. You'd think it would be too hard to keep the next generation "on the farm", literally.
