While at a auction sale in Clare Mi today a Amish man saw my model T Ford jacket and talked with me about the T!! He was astounded at the 52 mph i once made with my T! I guess 20 hp is alot when your used to only one hp! When i told him about free start's you could see wheel's turning.Bud in Wheeler.
Hey Bud - Do you suppose it had something to do with your "Santa Claus" style beard?
Dick, that's hilarious!
Dick,I almost fell out of my chair and i have seen them but never thought about it!! Keith,Even if i dressed i can't pass cause all them folk's are skinny! Bud.
The Amish and others aren't skinny if you eat dinner at Mary Yoder's restaurant. I love the home made pies.
ROFLMFHO! I'm going to pass that one on!
Mmmm PIE. . . . .
Now look what you've done Dennis!! You ARE a Menace!
It was 8.00 but a Rasberry pie came home with me!Bud.
Our car club is having our Dust Off Tour in May and will be eating at Mary's Bakery (Langston, MI?). Home (wood stove)cooked chicken dinners with all the fixings. You need to have about 20 people and make reservations well in advance. Did it a couple years ago. YUM! Afterward we go to an Amish owned Cheese Factory and stock up.
Gary,Is Mary's the place on 91 just north of town with a Model A truck? Been to the Cheese Factory and Trufant day is about to start.Bud in Wheeler.
Gary, does "all the fixin's" include stewed Rhubarb? Mmmmm, my grandmother made the best! Wish I had her recipe. . .
Back "in the day" Ms. Knott's Chicken Dinners included stewed Rhubarb doubt that's included now, been a long time since I was in S. Calif. My Uncle was a contemporary of the Knotts and one of my cousins worked at the kitchen creating jam & jelly recipes. And then there was Belisle's (spelling?)Country Cooking just south of Disney Land--oh boy, homemade cobblers & food the just didn't stop!
Is it obvious I haven't had breakfast yet???
Kenneth, Not on M-91. It's on a dirt/gravel road either Fitzner or Vinning North off Kendalville Rd., I think. While she has a small store with bake goods there is also a large Amish style building with a kitchen and dining room on each of two floors. They do not have a phone. You have to call a neighbor who will make a connection. A car club member does all the arrangements. I can get more info if wanted. There is a hay ride scheduled after lunch if weather is good.
David, Maybe latter on in the year. A bit early for rhubarb yet.
Gee I didn't mean to high-jack the thread when I brought up Amish eating establishments. I sorry I did because now I'm going to have to go to Mary Yoder's. There are several cheese factories and cheese houses around Middlefield, Ohio where Mary Yoder's is and I usually stop and get good cheese too. Thank heaven for the fat man steering wheel invention.
