shortly after my dad purchased a new 1960 chevy "biscayne" we were, (he and me) for reason's i forget, in the area of elverson PA. my dad stopped at a amish farm and picked up a amish fellow and we were then our way to have dinner at another amish house. while on the way to our dinner destination the amish fellow , who was riding "shotgun", "spit" on the floor of dad's new chevy. from the back seat i could see dad turning three shades of red. now dad was six two weighed about 250 and could "talk" dutch. i don't know what he said to the "spitter" but at dinner there wasn't a whole lot of conversation between the two. when we took the amish guy home he did not spit again on the floor of dad's chevy.

The neighbors E of us, Milt and Bertha Gummig had a new 1956 (I think) green Chevy pk. Milt (Our folks had us call them Uncle Milt and Aunt Bert), anyway, Uncle Milt rented the ground from a neighbor N of him, an old guy vit der CChermun accent. Ruppert (actually it was Robt) Kassalhut had quit farming and rented out his ground as his boy wouldnt farm it. it was hilly ground. Anyway, ond day, Agnes Kassahut called uncle Milt and asked if he was going to town. Aunt Bert worked at the cafe in town. Milt said yes he would be going at such and such a time. Agnas said rthat Robt would walk down and be ready. Well, they got ready to go. Uncle Milt had just cleaned the truck up like new. THe windows were up and shiny. They started out when Uncle Milt thought to check the mailbox, so he got out and walked over to it. While he was gone, Robt spit hios chaw out the window, but it wasnt open. When Uncle Milt turned around to come back he coluld see Robt trying to clean off the window from the inside. He didnt say anything, as he was rernting Robts ground, but it sure whizzed him off

I could tell you what I think of the Amish but I'd probably get a severe flaming so I'd best keep it to myself.......

Right..And a lot of people don't believe this, but they don't treat their women any better than their horses...

I never would have known this about them, I always thought they were very religous, courtious,etc.. treating their wives, kids, and neighbors with respect. Learn something new every day.
