Amish and Mennonite Quilts

Pequea, Pennsylvania High 77 Low 54

Today we went toward Lancaster. Cindy got her insulin refilled at the Walmart here. We did ask about the law we ran into in New York and they had never heard of it. So the balances of her refills are still intact.

I also needed fuel and spent $335.  New York prices are 50 cents per gallon more than here, so I saved 44 dollars by waiting until Pennsylvania. It is nice to have a large tank so I have the option to choose when I fill the diesel.

We saw lots of scenery and fields of crops. There was on quilt store on an Amish farm that didn't sell fabric, but had lots of nice quilts and other crafts for sale.

We then went to a quilt store ran by a Mennonite lady. She is the one that had lower priced fabric. Cindy had three quilts she wanted backs for and we found some nice fabric for them.

Coming back to the trailer the GPS seemed to do alright finally. We were able to see some interesting sights.

And now a little update on Penny. She slept the whole night without as much as a single whimper. I called the vet that checked her 3 weeks ago and they told me we probably didn't need to have her checked until she is 12 weeks old, at which time she will need her last distemper shot and rabies shot. Just to be sure, I called another vet and was told almost the same thing. She seems to be very playful, but likes to chew, so we got her some chew sticks. Cindy said she smelled a little bit, so she gave her a bath. Again, she took the bath without a single sound. She did shiver a little after, and it was probably because she was cold.

I checked with the office at this park about the weekend, and while we have to move to another site, we will be able to stay here until the 5th. She also told me before I move tomorrow; to check back and she will see if we can stay put.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Penny is precious... We will need more pictures of her from now on,,,LOL

  2. She is just adorable. And I'm glad to know she had her puppy shots because what the other comment said is true. The Amish run horrible puppy mills. But Penny is now home and is going to be spoiled rotten - which is a good thing.

  3. Have you taken her to a vet for a check up? I would just to be safe. Things develop very quickly in a young puppy. Is she eating and playing ? Puppy mill puppies are exposed to a lot of illnesses and are typically not treated as that cost the breeders money and they are more concerned about making money. I would have her checked for worms, ear mites etc
