Sunday Stills...

So THERE!

I loved this weeks challenge. Mainly because animals are about the only thing I take pictures of, beside demo of bad construction, the rebuilding of good construction, and the sky.

One thing I did want to clear up though, I do live in an Amish-Mennonite community. Mennonites to shorten it up. Anyway I didn't want to offend anyone. Our A.M.'s care little for their animals, go out of their way to hit and kill cats, snakes, turtles etc that happen to be in the road, the women can't wear any fabric if the print is larger than 1/4" (I personally don't think it's a sin as they do and I highly doubt that the God is measuring their gingham to make sure it's not over that quarter of an inch), we've yet to have one be a decent neighbor (I don't consider letting your bulls come calling and asking my 70 + year old grandmother to but their mean bull back through the fence because their scared of him and are too busy.). I could go on... but I'm sure you get my drift. So having said all that... I do apologize IF I did offend anyone. It wasn't in my heart to do so...

Off to take a gander at the other Sunday Still posts! Have a great week!!!!

  3. Precious pictures! I want more, more, more! I don't realize how much I miss seeing them up close and personal until I see them up close and personal! (Okay, I can't smell them from here, but that might not be a bad thing.)

    As for Amish neighbors. They have created two new communities in our area over the last 15-20 years. On the one hand, I'm glad they are farming the land, instead of developers throwing up more cheap new houses. And the few Amish that I've met personally have been friendly and polite. On the other hand, I know of others whose experience has not been so pleasant. They are notorious trespassers who completely ignore "no trespassing" signs when they go hunting - which is all year long, regardless of seasons. While they won't pay for their own cars or phones, they have no hesitation asking for a ride or to make a call on one that somebody else pays for. This strikes me as obeying "the letter" and not the spirit of their own rules - and pretty cheap, besides.

  8. Great pics! I'm near Amish country too and I've encountered mostly nice people with the occassional jerk among the bunch. I've also seen animals well cared for and I've seen the draft horses at the auction with sores and hip bones sticking out. I guess their community is like any other - some good, some bad.
