Year 3, Day # 288 - Amish Paradise

Pinecraft is the real Amish Paradise, instead of the one "Weird" Al Yankovic sings about. Seriously while I was gone the mural on Yoder's Fresh Market was repainted. This is just one scene from the overall painting and it reminds me of "Amish Paradise." 

I will have to wait until tomorrow to get the whole wall. Today there were too many vehicles in the parking lot. I don't know who did this painting but it is beautiful and I love the details.

Year 3, Day # 287 - Big Olaf Fix

Tonight I had my first Big Olaf Fix since I am back home. 
Life is very slow, very quiet and very hot.
But I am okay with the slow, the quiet and the hot, especially for this time of the year.

Year 3, Day # 285 - Happy Squirrel

Before I had left for the north in June the squirrels would come running whenever I turned in at the park. They knew me by the roasted and salted peanuts in my bike basket. I kept wondering if the squirrels will remember me when I return to Pinecraft? This one was laying flat, stretched out on the fence and just stayed in that position while I biked up to it and tossed out a few peanuts. It took its good old time in deciding if he can trust me before taking the peanut. He was on his second peanut when Lucas came around for a visit and so he scrambled up the tree. But that is okay, for the squirrel will be waiting for me tomorrow evening.

Year 3, Day # 284 - Traveling Via Pioneer Trails

I was gone for almost seven weeks and for the most part I was without Internet service, except for the phone, so I didn't keep up with Project 365. I am simply going to start with yesterday's photo rather than going back and finding a photo for each day I didn't post. I am using yesterday's picture because yesterday and today all blend into one long day riding the Pioneer bus from Berlin Ohio to Sarasota Florida.

  Yesterday the Pioneer bus picked up three young mothers, two men and a number of children at the Mt Hope bus stop. They got off somewhere between Columbus and Cincinnati where a new Swartzentruber Amish community got established a few years ago. Using the Pioneer Trails bus makes for convenient traveling especially with small children, rather than using public transportation like Greyhound bus. Thursday when the Pioneer Bus returns from making their run to Florida, these people are ready and waiting to get back home.
