The Amish…In Their Own Words

My husband discovered a clothes washer makes an excellent mouse trap. Leave the lid open. Once a mouse is inside, pt it on spin cycle for only a short time. Upon opening the lid, the mouse will be so dizzy it won’t even think of biting you when you pull it out! Scribe from Rutledge, Missouri

In their own words…
Cool, wet and cloudy, day after day. Thunderstorms and lightning have kept some awake at night. At a recent gathering it was discovered that all the men present had slept through the thunderings. But all the women verified that there had been thundering. One man reported that if things get too rough, then he finds it out, because his wife wakes him. Scribe from Clayton, Illinois
