Amish Ice Cream

While in Florida, we discovered an Amish Ice Cream shop at Madeira Beach:

At first, I thought it a joke, or at least something incredibly inauthentic. However, there is apparently an Amish settlement near Sarasota, and the place was run by some folks from Pennsylvania, which all by itself makes it partially legit. The ice cream was fantastic.

The only other report from Florida is that the economy can't be in too bad of shape. There were approximately 4 billion people at Epcot with us on Tues (yes, that's right, over half the population of the earth). Our friend Tonya wisely did not join us.

four billion people? yes, have to say, not sorry to have missed that. but did you all at least have fun?

Dude, you were at treasure Island? Did you come over the sunshine skyway? If so, you should have waved when you went by.

Yea, there is a big Amish community down here. Many of my students are mennonite. However, they aren't much like the mennonites in your congregation.

We never go past DeSoto state park. When you drive for 18 or 19 hours, going further south is not high on the todo list.

Thus, I didn't even notice how close Sarasota is to where we were. Oh well...
