Intercourse Heritage Days 2009 – Part 2

…continued from Part 1.

This was the woman who won the Shoofly Pie contest.

Notice the bald spot in her part?

Erica tells me it’s because amish women pull their hair down so tightly every day.

Kinda sad…let’s move on…

The 2009 Volleyball Tournament included over 40 teams.

How do you know when things are getting serious?

1. When shirts start getting untucked.

& 2. When amish kids are wearing wristbands.

This dude remembers when his body was young enough to play volleyball.

But years of working the land and avoiding technology takes quite a toll on a man.

(and for those of you who wonder why the amish wear suspenders instead of belts…

…it’s so you can stick your hands in your pants whenever you like.)

Am I contractually obligated to go with “pretty maids all in a row” for this photo?

Yes, I think I am.

This is my neice, Avery, enjoying some homemade Lapp Valley ice cream.

0% Amish.

100% cute.

Dish soap, bucket, water, hay, and gravity.

This is probably stretching the definition of “station” a bit too far, no?

Here’s a couple pushing around a tiny dog in a pink stroller.

I will now kill myself.

She knew there would be consequences for her actions.

Kissing that non-Amish boy last month was a mistake.

But being forced to wear the Scarlet Dress of Shame during Heritage Days weekend?

Let them judge her…his kiss was electric and totally worth it.

Finally, I asked someone to snap this photo of me before I said goodbye to the 2009 edition of  Intercourse Heritage Days.

Santa Claus in the middle of June?

Yup.

Welcome to Intercouse.

    Why do all the volleyball dudes look like Jim from The Office?

    Do the Amish believe in Santa? Also in the scarlet dress photo, does the Mennonite girl in the brown have a firefighters pager clipped to her purse?

    Dude, that is so funny! I love those pictures. If I didn’t know you I would have sworn some of that stuff was people play-acting. Good times in Intercourse, PA.

    I am just curious about the thickness of the belts that you rock. I can put my hands in my pocket anytime I want wearing any of my belts..Please inform.

    Disregard my last statement…I reread and will now strike it from the record.

    In the scarlet dress photo the dude on the far right is a volunteer fireman for Gordonville. Girl in brown dress = EMT. The girl sporting the scarlet dress of shame is my neice. I am so showing this to her. Love your pics.

    Bryan- don’t you think the small bit of hair missing from the Amish lady was the secret ingredient in her winning pie?

      I think you might be on to something there. Remind me to never judge a shoofly pie contest ever.
