I took these pictures, in June, in an Old Order Mennonite and Amish area.  Aren't sure if the plow is Old Order Mennonite or Englisher. I thought the local garden would be interesting.

Now there's an impressive garden. Very nice pictures.

There is an APB out in New York State for two Amish girls that were taken from their roadside stand in Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County at about 7:30PM last night. The are looking for: Fannie Miller age 12 and Delila Miller age 7. Both are Amish dressed in blue dresses wearing aprons. They were taken in a white car. Should anyone, by chance, see anything, please call your call police department or the state troopers or the state police.

Hi Marilyn,

NOTE: Amish America also has a post on the girls today. So if you have a change, please go and see Erik's post.

Canada is also looking for the girls as the town they were taken from is not far from the border.

Also, it was advised that the girls may not be in Englisher's clothes if the people that took them forced them to change their clothes.

If, by chance, you should see anything call the numbers I told you before or 911. Even the slightest chance may help.

Again, if you get a chance, please read Erik's post on Amish America.

NOTE: I just saw the news. The girls have not been found yet. They are asking for people to keep an eye especially on the Thruway and gas stations. Of course they could be anywhere.

The girls may be in Englisher clothing and their hair cut. They, of course, may be speaking Pennsylvania Dutch.

If you live in Canada, please keep an eye out too as they might have some how crossed the border.

Please keep these girls in your prayers.

PRAISE GOD !!! The Amish girls were found safe and sound. They have been returned to their parents. They were found in the last three hours. The girls were let out of the car and they walked to a near by house. The people called the police.
