The Daviess County bus from Indiana left today. There are always the "Good-byes".

Sitting on the corner of Bahia Vista and Kaufman in the late afternoon is rewarding, as everybody is going somewhere.
When I saw this mother come out of Yoder's Deli, I just figured she has a baby in the stroller. But when I loaded this photo on the computer, I saw how wrong I was. The watermelon gets to ride because he doesn't have legs while the little boy does the walking.

We work and we play. I think this is the popcorn man from Indiana. He raises a specific kind of popcorn to sell. After the harvest they become Snow Birds in Sarasota.
Freeman Beachy is a hard working man in Pinecraft. They take care of a number of rentals and are most always cleaning up somewhere, something. I do think in the summertime up north, he takes life a bit easier. They did some traveling this past summer with the highlight being Colorado.
All told, we work and we play and we enjoy life. This is the way it ought to be.

Tonight after sunset I practiced iPhone photography. These photos are the end result of the best ones I took.
I thought Mary and Leanna made a good silhouette while visiting over the fence.
The first photo shot came out great. The second one they lost their composure at the thought of Mennonite women hovering over the "No Smoking" sign.
These two women keep the park life lively.

This is a Mother/Daughter picture. They are here to doctor for health reasons from Annville Kentucky. Annville is a fairly new settlement with about eighteen families.
These two were Rumspringa buddies more than 45 years ago. My Brother Eli and Fred Hershberger.

Today the Pioneer Trails bus came in with quite a number of people. This was the first group of people waiting for the bus to arrive.
And then the golf cards came in, Omar Beiler with Ben Lapp, Mattie Miller and Paul Miller
Today was the first time The Budget from Sugarcreek Ohio came down via the bus. Sam Troyer is in charge of distributing The Budget. The price went up by 25 cents, which makes the cost $1.25.
Looks like the baby grabbed a beard.
Omar with Sovilla and Ben from north of Mt Hope. They have a winter home here.
Siblings, Mervin lives here year round, Mary Ellen and her husband are Snowbirds. In the background is another snowbird, Crist & Betty.

I was amazed at the amount of people at tonight's Shuffleboard tournament. They had four games going, plus lots of people watching the games.
This is also the time to sit and visit and catch up with the people that arrive almost daily. I am surprised at the amount of people coming in the last ten days or so.
Albert Miller and Henry Wagler
Cristy Hochstetler and John Henry Whetstone are seated. I don't know the man behind them.

These beauties are down by the Phillippi Creek.
I didn't take a computer with me on my trip to North Carolina, so I only posted some photos I had taken with my phone. Those got on Facebook and Instagram. But I am back home after a very relaxing stay with cousins and am ready to take my best camera with me whenever I leave the house.
