Year 3, Day # 130 - Preteen Crush

This is Beebly Crist Rudy's Ben from Wayne County Ohio. I met him on the streets tonight and we stopped for a visit. In 1963, when I was in third grade we were neighbors to his Grandpa Beebly Crist. Beebly Crist had a son named Andy who had a crush on my Sister Anna. They never talked or anything like that because we were not hat kind of neighbors. We were not from the same Amish Church. They were Swartzentruber Amish and we were Andy Weaver Amish. And the only reason we knew Andy liked Anna was because one day when he was hauling manure from our farm to their farm. I don't know what the deal was but they wanted the manure from our barn. We were renting so it wasn't our manure, but it belonged to the landlord Henry Hershberger. Anyway every time Andy returned for another load, he would stop the horses on the road just long enough to take off his suspenders to impress Anna, who must have been working in the yard or garden. It was just a little crush...  I told Ben the story and we had a good laugh.
