More Attractive

One of the fascinating things about living in western Pennsylvania is the Amish. Somehow they manage to preserve some semblance of their historical culture in the midst of the modern world. But underneath the outward differences, their lives are really very similar to ours.

They deal with traffic.


They buy used vehicles.


They farm.

Their children go to school.

And they live in houses in the country.

They just do it all without electricity and pneumatic tires.

I have to admit, sometimes their way looks much more attractive than ours.
