Yesterday Tom and I had plans to go to NYC for the day but at the very last minute our plans fell through leaving us with an entire day at home with no real plans. It was such a lovely fall day we wanted to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. We ended up taking a very touristy drive though the countryside, stopping at a couple of covered bridges along the way.

This bridge, spanning Hammer Creek, was originally built in 1847 for just $700 and was rebuilt in 1887. As we were sitting by the creek, several Amish horse & buggies crossed over the bridge. One had a teenage couple in it and the boy stopped the buggy right in the middle of the bridge making his girlfriend squeal in half terror. I couldn't help but wonder if he does that every time they cross a bridge.

It's interesting to think about that Amish boy's habits. Once, I saw a little kid who got scolded for hitting his sister then as their mother turned around, he pulled her hair and I wondered if maybe he did that every time he didn't get his way and if it would manifest itself into some sort of cruelty later in life. Also, these pictures are beautiful, very scenic, like part of a storybook :)

Hello! I've been searching your page for a contact email address for you as I was hoping to be able to ask whether you would be willing to answer a few questions and give me a massive help with my dissertation- is there any way I could contact you? I really hope so! My address is annahlegg@gmail.com - if you could let me know if you'd be willing for me to ask you a few questions I would be so grateful!

I really hope to hear from you soon,
