By taggart  

Connie caught me off guard, but I think I got a decent image----silly enough to make you laugh, too!

I met this gal at an OPEN BARN (as in OPEN HOUSE) event held today by a large Amish family. The family owned factories specialize in pre-fab sheds and gourmet cheeses. One was allowed to wander freely thru the barns as well as watch a dog and farmer herd sheep, enjoy homemade donuts and purchase cheeses, meats, canned goods and bake goods.

The Amish know how to keep Connie's good humour up. A fine character portrait. TG

Wonderful capture Jenn

I see that they still use the old fashioned bailer twine over there (hanging up by the door)

It has been the artificial stuff over here, for years
