Amish story on BBC

This is an interesting story, but am somewhat suspect because being video taped. Hummm.


Amish being doomed? what happened to "they double their population every 20 years."?

Too funny, Barb! I love your hubby's sense of humor!

Re: Amish story on BBC

 We have a wedding to go to in a couple of weeks. My husband wants to wear his overalls to it.  If he could he wear them to everything. This wedding is a black tie event and I told him I don't think  he would be allowed to enter .  He said he would  wear a  "black" tie . I  Don't think so! This wedding is so fancy no children under 5 are allowed to attend. Not sure we would go to it  except the groom is a nephew.

That's funny, Barb! I'd like to see the look on his face when you tell him.... Laughing

Re: Amish story on BBC

Diann, I told him and he said.." I will consider dressing that way when someone appoints me Supervisor, right now there doesn't seem to be an opening!". We had a pretty good laugh over that. Gotta give the guy in the video credit for trying,tho"!!

Thanks for sharing the "rest of the story". I had seen the first part Kevin posted yesterday. Very interesting!

Re: Amish story on BBC

That was interesting.  I was surprised by the head coverings.  I thought Amish wore "caps", some of these appear to be scarfs.

To all you agri people out there, do your men folk wear a suit and tie when doing chores and hauling hay! Funny!

Re: Amish story on BBC

In a word,NO!! My hubby doesn't own a tie or a suit. He borrows a tie if the need arises. That does look funny,tho"!! I will have to show him and tell him he dresses all wrong!Laughing
