I saw a Mennonite gal at Leadmine ramp with Whopper Ploppers.  😲

In another thread I think you said Amish can be a partner in a motorboat but can’t own outright?

Ask 'em. It really is the only way, with some New Order and some Old Order of each and with different customs in each community within those orders.  I went to school with Mennonite kids in the 1960s that dressed in store bought clothes for school and rode the school bus, I've met some since that were as strict as any Amish I've seen.

That's the way it is with the ones around here.   They can drive company trucks also, but aren't allowed to own one.  The way I interpret it, it is kinda like a "don't feed the revenue system" kinda thing.  The kids go to public school but take their lunch, don't participate in any after school activities or sports, and NEVER are involved in any mischief or disruptions of any kind.  

I was speeding once and passed a trooper that spun around in the road and came after me.  I pulled into an Amish home driveway because there was no shoulder and I knew he was gonna pull me over, the trooper caught up and pulled in behind me.... and here came "Papa" right quick to run that trooper off his property IMMEDIATELY.   

Saved me from getting a ticket 😊

As long as they pay their bill with me it's none of my business. ☺️

Amish have Beards. Learned this from the Mennonites Pastors Son. Was good friends with him for many years.

Also did business with many Amish.

Right now I can only fish and not sure how much longer I can do that so don’t listen to me I’m basically out of the game.
