The Amish Cook from Oasis Newsfeatures

Blurry, but you get the idea....

One of the things I've always said was my biggest misconception early on about the Amish is their sense of humor.  Most outsiders think of the Amish as an austere, pious, humorless group and that simply isn't true.  Most Amish that I have met have a wonderful sense of humor.  This photo is a photo of a photo.  The original, taken circ. 1997, is at my parents house and, not wanting to take it, I just took a photo of it.  Turned out okay, I think.  This photo shows me sitting in a rocking chair at the home of Lovina's mom, Elizabeth Coblentz, the original Amish Cook.   In a playful moment, she took one of Ben's hats and had me wear it.  I think it might have been Lovina who took the photo, but I am not sure.  SIGH, I wish thinner back then, that is for sure.  Anyway, most Amish find such playful moments a fun and enjoyable part of life!Smile
