If there was a word association for the this picture, it would be “Amish Zen”.

Why, you ask?   The Zen part comes from the decade old Chinese inspired calendar that I attempted to paid a Bonsai tree.

The Amish part comes a guys Kyle worked with after starting to grow the beard; sort-of beard Kyle is trying to grown and the guys he worked with…looking more like he should have a name like Enoh or Jedidiah and coming home after a hard day of barn raising.

I have a lot of respect for Amish people; they have a strong faith, values and community.   They are hard-working, can raise animal, live off the land and can and preserve their own food and used to living without most of our modern day appliances and vehicles.

Overall, on a scale of being prepared for a zombie apocalypse on a scale of 1 to 10 most are at a 9-10.   My preparedness is only at a level to survive a 6 hour power outage.
