JUST LIKE PENROSE


I doubt that any of you have forgotten this contraption but thought that you would like to know that there are dozens of these still in use in western NY by the Amish. Mary Lynn and I love to go to this area especially in the fall. There are so many things about their way of life that are similar to the way we grew up. There is more to come.

I remember the old hayloader. Once, a snake came in with the hay, and Dwight threw it at me (driving the tractor.) Not a smart thing to do, right? Was our hayloader quite so tall? I can't remember.

Do they really still use these?

Liz has a great imagination.

NOT! I've noticed that it is common to remember the good things that we do, and forget the other.
