    Yes, normally they wear plain clothes but I was just trying to perk them up a little. I know alot of Amish folks around here and they are getting really hip. :wink:

    Hey, that's interesting - if they keep that up, they will be using electric sewing machines next! As I said, I thought she was really cute, and I like her sitting down too.

    The Amish around here have tv's, cell phones, etc. I know because some of them have done work for me. They are good people. We should be more like them. :wink:

    are you sure the people in your area are amish - typically the people who use those things are mennonite.

    the mennonites do not have to adhere to the same strict guidelines as the amish and this is why you are seeing them with tv, phones, etc.

    there are amish and there are mennonites and different guidelines apply to each group - they are not one and the same.

    The Mennonite have cells phones and modern conveniences. Not the true Amish.

    I am reading a few series based on the life of the Amish by Wanda E. Brunstetter. I have completed the series DAUGHTERS OF LANCASTER COUNTY, and I'm now reading the first book in the series BRIDES OF LANCASTER COUNTY. Also I've read Cindy Woodsmall's series SISTERS OF THE QUILT (When the Heart Cries, When Morning Comes, and When a Soul Mends). I just can't get enough of these books. These people live such structured, moral lives. My opinion is that they really have their priorities in order. These books are fiction, but based on fact as lived in the Amish communities.


    I like the little Amish girl.
