I, too, have nothing but respect for my many Amish neighbors. I'm not sure I could say this area is predominantly Amish, but it's certainly heavily Amish. And I've learned a lot about their culture and ways in the decade since moving here.
One of the things I've learned is that they're not greatly different than any other group of people. Just as in every assembly of individuals, there are good Amish, not so good Amish, strict Amish, and not so strict Amish. They're people.
I've also learned not to drive behind a buggy and then drive into a clean garage. Getting that stuff off your tires is a messy job.
