This particular pay phone is still used and is a very important connection with the outside world to the local Amish community. The true Amish people do not have this modern convenience in their homes. They drive their horses to a central location and share one phone with the entire community.

I liked this picture for two reasons. Fairs are a great time for the kids to show off their hard work -having spent months taking care of and training their animals. This little girl was working hard to prepare her pet goat for the show ring. She was doing the work herself - not her parents - who often do the work for their kids - which I think it totally wrong - it defeats the purpose. The second reason; I liked the fact that this girl's hair matched the color and texture of her goat. Which in this case is a good thing!
