The gray wagon is what they use to take the folding church benches from one location to another.

It seems like I am attracted to Winter plowing by horses by the Amish farmers. I hope you enjoy seeing these posts. I decided to do the narrow landscape version to give added interest.

In looking for an appropriate, I decided to choose this one from 4 years ago, when our son was home, and we had a meal similar to one I had yesterday at noon. I surely wish a Happy New Year to all my friends, whether fellow bloggers, or friends and family, across the world! With our German heritage, Mashed Potatoes, Sauerkraut, and Sausage (oops-hot dog substitute) are a must. This year it was cheese-impregnated venison, hotdogs a gift from one of my taxi customers.

Ear Corn

You don’t see much corn in cribs like this anymore. It brings back memories of years ago back on the farm. Of course Iowa farms are noted for their corn. Nowadays farmers usually store their corn as shelled corn, in bins. Probably Amish farmers are some of the farmers that do put away “ear corn”!

Santa (Jim) has been visiting this family for a long time. Santa brought gifts to the Mother of this home when she was a little girl! Like Santa said, “That was a long time ago.” He said he can’t afford to visit all the children of the children of the first family he visited, but he visits at least this family and one other one, because he kind of took a liking to them. The same has happened to me. Maybe biased, since the children say I am their favorite taxi driver!
