Accordion or harmonica, but never in public
they are gun folk, but that may be relevant to their traditions. I wonder whether music lends itself to idleness and sin, or if it is just traditional instruments with no ties to modern music.
They would definitely clean up as luthiers though, were they willing and the word got out as in the case of the few things they do sell.
I know non-Amish people who have taken vacations to "Amish country", wherever that is, just to get away from 'society' for a while, relax, and learn things from them. I'm not one who likes to travel on vacations much anymore, but if I was to, it'd be really cool to go there.
Aren't all Amish men named "Leroy"?I agree.
We have a Amish community about an hour away....
They have a restraunt that offers the best food, all home-made and very tasty.
One time we saw a sign that offered "horse buggy" rides.
So my girlfriend and I went on an hour long buggy ride with this fellow named Leroy.
He was very intellegent, and educated us on the Amish lifestyle.
It was like stepping back in time.
No Marshalls, but a event Ill never forget!
All fun aside, I agree. We could all learn something from the Amish, but they are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. There are problems that I won't bring up in detail, but some of it is unpleasant and illegal.
