One of the joys of my Tupperware Business, is the amazing people I get to meet! I have been privileged to do parties for an amazing group of Amish ladies, north of Portage for the last ten years and have made some great friendships.
Many of the perks are Amish Oatmeal pies, organic chickens that are about eight pounds when they are fully dressed, onion/cheese bread and more!
Today, we went to visit Ms Erma, who is now a grandmother. Her daughter had her first baby and we brought a few gifts up. Sadly, we have no pictures of the new little peanut to share with you, they were nursing.
Before we left, Ms Erma asked Miss Sarah if she would like a ride in an “Amish Car”.
Sarah was helped into the buggy, then Erma got in to drive.It was a quick jaunt down the end of the driveway and back, but Sarah LOVED it! You can see the snow that we still have lingering in the background…it should be gone soon!I’m not sure who is smiling more: Miss Sarah or Ms Erma who is probably excited about her new grandson being able to ride along with her soon, LOL!
We did learn a few things today – like Amish “cars” require careful foot placement. They poop. This was kind of disturbing to Miss Sarah as she thought someone needed to get out some large toilet paper and “help them out”.
We also learned that Amish “cars” talk to each other. Two other buggies came up just after they parked (Erma has an Amish store) and the horses whinnied to each other as they were all at the same hitching post.
What did you learn new today?
