I entered this Amish home basement, and a lady was doing the laundry. I almost took a photo with my phone, but instead raced to my vehicle, got my camera, and by the time I returned the lady was finished. The Laundry was not going through the wringer, anymore, but there were still some suds in the other tub. A missed opportunity. Another morning, I was driving down the road with some taxi customers, so I decided not to stop and photograph the scene in the neighboring field! It was a team of six horses pulling a corn picker that was harvesting the corn field. As I have been pondering this subject for weeks, I now forget what the other missed opportunity that happened that day!

I trust that in the coming year neither you/nor I will have too many missed opportunities, whether a photo, or encounters with family or friends!

I am almost certain the washing machine in the photo is an old Maytag which is a standard in many Amish homes!
