Changes


The horse and buggy SUV has changed into Jeeps and such. The Amish family that came to town yesterday for some shopping parked their buggy here, and also unhitched their horse and tied him to a tree. That's the real advantage of the modern vehicle, you don't have to remove the engine and tie it to a tree when you park. Also, when you come back to your vehicle, the engine isn't mad at you for leaving it waiting in the snow.

Thursday changes into Friday, December changes into January, 2009 changes into 2010, the first decade of the 21st century changes into the second. Other changes may be internal and more subtle.

Happy New Year, may there be good new beginnings for all.

Horse and buggy seems to be a difficult means of travel in cold, wintry weather. Gotta give 'em credit!

Best wishes for a wonderful new year!

Life is always a change.

Sorry about our video Changes. We made a mistake ... Now is working. Please watch it and give us your impression.

:) Funny post and a nice contrast. It seems that in this world of change, there are things that are constant like the Amish way of life (or maybe just changing at a much slower rate). Back when I was planning a trip to Pennsylvania Amish County I've read a lot about this subject, how the Amish are fighting to preserve their ways but losing ground day after day.

Happy New Year! Fun to see the Amish buggy! We have a lot of Amish near my parents in central Wisconsin. My wife wanted to be Amish as a child and now we joke about our "Amish cable (tv)!" I hope your CHANGES in 2010 are all good!

I like the compliments. Old and new and both work.

I have found some nice photos from 2007 and 2008 that I would like to use in my blogs but last night was a bad night for me and I didn't get much rest. Most of the time I had one coughing fit after another. I thought I would try to just say, "thanks" to those who stopped today. I appreciate the comments, visits and prayers. I hope things will get back to normal soon.
