The Amish in their own Words…

The editor of our local paper had in how he was in a hurry to get to work on time one morning. When he slipped on his shoe he left something in there but being in a hurry he ignored it. Throughout the day he felt it again but never took the time to check till 4pm, he had enough. He took his shoe off and took a look and so quickly threw his shoe across the room. He asked a co-worker to take a look and sure enough he had seen right, a little squished mouse right at the toe of the shoe!

Little Nelson recently had his third birthday. Several days later he came to Mom with such a sorry look in his face asking, “Am I just two now?” His mom asked why and he said, “Well, my birthday cake is all gone now.” She, of course, assured him otherwise!
