    If I were Amish

    I'd park my buggy here at our local big chain store:

    But I'm not.

    What do you think you'd enjoy more, being Amish, if anything.

    That looks like the Walmart horse barn in Goshen Indiana. They built it for the Napanee Amish to park their horse and buggies there with some shelter for the horses.

    Since you're not Amish, do you have to park your buggy somewhere else? (It doesn't same Amish only, does it?)
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    IIRC, way back when I lived there, the "Farm & Fleet" store SE of town also had horse & buggy parking.

    I think chris... needs to photochop the Amish MP into existence.

    But I think she secretly sneaks into her nearest Amish phone booth with a laptop to read BF.

    You remember correctly. Both even have feed stations available and both stores provide snacks for the horses. Usually from damaged Quaker Oatmeal stocks if a container is ripped in shipment. Sometimes apples that are too soft to sell, or badly bruised.

    When I worked in factories summers between years of college to pay for my tuition, I was always impressed by the amish guys. No matter that they were wearing long sleeve shirts (we all had to wear long pants) and had full beards, they just seemed cooler and fresher at the end of a 13 hour shift than the rest of us. And this was even the old guys. Was probably an attitude thing as much as anything else. Not an issue now as the draft is pretty much done away with anyway, but the exemption from being drafted that my mennonite classmate had growing up would have been a good thing had the draft been reinstated.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
