does anyone else find this weird?

I live in an area where it is not uncommon to see horse drawn buggies (sp?) drving along the road, parked at walmart, etc...

But this, was hilarious (and puzzling).
I was walking out of a local pizza shop and there were 3 Amish ladies in their black dresses loading into a Brand spankin' new car....puzzling.

A while ago, we saw a menonite family pile out of an Escalade???

things that make you go hmmmmm.....

You never know what you are going to see in the Morgantown area! :)

Maybe it's the Menonite Mafia:)

LOLOL!!! Well, I've heard that sometimes Amish people hire "Englishers" to drive them places . . . so I suppose that could explain it?

if all they have to pay for is their simple black dresses (since they aren't paying for electricity, and haircuts, and mortgages (they build their own houses) I guess they can afford to pay for a car. Maybe their horse died?

Hey, I know that I shouldn't know this, but one of the menonites beliefs is that they shouldn't use electricity...that would be conforming too much to this world by depending on it too much...go figure they'd drive around Escalades. Hey, if they can afford RIDICULOUSLY expensive, uneconomical, gas guzzling vehicular devices...more power to 'em.

OR...maybe they are teens in doing the "freedom to try English ways" stage that has a name I can't remember...OR they could be like my brother, Nate, who went to school in Lancaster and thought it would be fun to dress like an Amish for a banquet at school. (it was pretty funny, and he did have an Amish beard, so he looked pretty authentic)

I've heard the Amish are filthy rich, because they use stuff that is cheaper than what we use (grass for horses vs. gasoline for cars).
I know Mennonites which are separate from Amish are allowed to drive dark colored cars just as long as they don't draw attention to themselves, but an Escalade? I would've loved to seen a picture of that.
