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.

For Real: Kentucky and legal descriptions of land boundaries!

I couldn't make this up. Really. And I've seen ones that are even more unbelievable.  Read this description of the boundaries of a piece of land going up for auction here:

The other one that I read some time again talked about a big rock, down the middle of a creek, etc.  And all the land down here is cut into these bizarre shapes, I am guessing it follows the hills and valleys that are down here.  Our land, for example, follows the top of a large hill and goes rather straight and the rest is all crooked, going here and there.  Thankfully it is all fenced.

The No No No Movie

Lately I have been playing with software to make movies and add music, etc.  I've been having a lot of fun with it!  The Sunrise Movie was my first attempt, not too bad and I learned the basics.  I'm working on one with baby goats right now but need some more footage.  The video part was a little tricky to figure out.  But I had this idea for a movie about corgis.  So here it is, and I hope you all enjoy it a lot!  Thanks to all who contributed photos and video of their corgis in a No No No moment!n   You will have to cut and paste into your browser to view this movie!
