Don’t get too excited. I have nothing to confess. We just happened to attend The Confession, which is a musical, this afternoon. The musical is an adaptation of a trilogy of bestselling Amish novels and was presented in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. This Amish love story was quite well done, and Tim and I both enjoyed it. Although fictional, the story did give us some insight into Amish life and customs.
We spent the morning at Miller’s RV Service Center, where we met with a technician who has promised to take care of our leaks next Tuesday or Wednesday. Although that’s still a wait, it’s better than the two to four week window we’ve been given by other centers. Miller’s is a small, family operation, and Tim and I both got a good feeling about the operation.
In between Miller’s and The Confession, we were able to drive some of the back roads in Amish country. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, is a beautiful area, and the morning was beautiful, with bright blue skies. We saw many horse-drawn carriages and both children and adults on scooter-bikes.

We feasted on local home cooking for dinner, including stuffed cabbage, ham and scalloped potatoes, stewed tomatoes, sweet potatoes and homemade pumpkin pie. I had to take a tiny shoo fly pie home with us. This is a dessert that is a trademark of Amish cooking. It is similar in texture to a coffee cake and has a gooey molasses bottom with a crumbly brown sugar topping. It’s a bit too sweet for me, but I wanted to try it.
Tonight we are waiting for snow.
