~Sadie and Vi are
installing the vanes
they bought from the Mennonites~

~Looks like Jediah and
Zea.  They are riding
up in the coach~

~This is a day of sorrow~
in the back of the coach
is a casket~Moses is inside~

~"We're driving on to
Ten-Thousand Village~We'd
be graced if you two kind
ladies would ride with us to
the funeral~Papa Moses
passed on"~

~Whether it be traveling to
distant villages, knocking
on doors, presenting the
tenets of the Mormon faith
or riding in a coach pulled
by a team of horses carrying
a casket on the way to Ten
Thousand village for a Mennonite
service and burial~the spiritual
journey is routed in search of
the perfect hide~

~Ten Thousand Village closes
down its craft booths and the
Mennonites sing Amazing Grace~

~There are some kind words
spoken about Moses.  The bearded
men dressed in Pilgrim Haberdashery
carry Moses' casket to the gravesite
for burial in their private cemetery~

~Jediah discusses with the men his
thoughts on the gravestone~ which
they make soon after one of theirs

~Jediah is strong enough to carry on
no matter what~The two draft horses
are showing early signs of lameness~
He will keep his eyes focused on the
pastures and prairies~looking for a
pair of work horses~preferably young~
so he can train them to pull the coach
his way~with an even temperament and
proud to pull the Lord's wheel~Jediah's
customized horse-drawn religion~

~Rest in Peace Moses~It was good to
know you~

Is this taking place in modern times, or the past, I belive the Mennomites, can drive cars(they do in Fla) so I am thinking past????
This is very interesting, I find their lifestyle impressive in todays age. This is very well told........

I have a funny Mennoite story.......true.

Yrs ago I was at the beach in Sarasota Fl, by myself. A midwestern Menoite family was there, dressed with bonnets etc, the whole nine yards, with the men in their gear too. This was their first trip to the ocean, they had never seen it!! I was sitting off to the side, and watching them with a big grin, their enthusium was adorable. The kept marveling over the ocean, but they had a son, who was off to the side. Suddenly he noticed all the females in bikinis lol his head was going back and forth like a windmill, while the rest of his family was oohing and ahhhing over the Gulf of Mexico, he was in his own ocean of delight!! LOL.......wish I had a movie camera that was so cute!! And the thing was, I was the only one who noticed the scene.

not to digress........ha ha..........too late


enjoyed the write!!!

Only you with your unique and gifted quill could have devised such a luxury for us all here in the Den...

I admire your spirit and self discipline know I do..

You rock master craftswoman !

Liked it, Sage, but I'm bogged down with remorse over the Three Dead Soldiers to do much more than acknowledge this well-written mini-saga.
Reviewed by Andy Turner (Reader) 6/22/2006
Rather good. But what makes one even think of the Mennonites as a subject.. Unique is good, bloody good old girl...
