Buggy Ride and Special Contest

While staying with my Amish friends, I needed to get to a book signing at an Amish country store, but all the “Englischer” drivers had been hired out for the day. So we hitched a horse to a carriage on a cold and rainy day. I thought you might enjoy the clopping sound and snippets of scenery.

For those of you reading from Amazon.com, here’s a link to the video on YouTube.

Special Contest


I love having contests! I’ve already met a lot of new people through the latest one! Contests are such a great way to connect with readers and add a little zing to a quiet day. With that in mind, I’m giving away another Amish-made quilt! See details below, but PLEASE follow the directions. I’m sorry, but e-mailing me through Facebook or posting a comment on my Web site or on Facebook will not enter you into this contest. You will need to follow the instructions below. Thank you! 🙂


I’m running a very special contest that will only last until February 15.

The prize is an Amish-made quilt! (See photo above) This quilt was sewn by Anna, who is the daughter of a bishop. She’s signed and dated the quilt.
