When I tell someone I'm from Winchester, they say "Kentucky?" or "Canal Winchester?" When my buddy tells people he is from Seaman they always think he is being clever. Never call somebody who isn't from around Adams County if you are just sitting somewhere in the town of Seaman and calling them. Saying "I'm just sitting here in Seaman" doesn't always sound right to them.
    I go out to Seaman sometimes to that Amish market right off the highway there. They make some darn good rye bread.

    Ah yes. The Amish Market owned by Meninites where they repackage things and sell them for higher prices because its from the "Amish." Obviously, I'm a little bitter, but they do have some really good stuff. The furniture is very overpriced if you ask me, but hey.

    I don't buy the pre-packaged stuff. They bake some of their own bread there and it's very good. The other stuff I can get at Jungle Jim's as well and that's a lot closer to home.

    Not long ago I was passing through Pennsylvania and came across a real Amish market, none of the pre-packaged things and a lot cheaper. My guess is that there aren't too many of those places around anymore.

    A "creek" is what you have in a door hinge that needs oiled.

    I also "worsh" my clothes.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    My Grandma was born and raised in Madeira (Graduated from the 3rd graduating class of Madeira High School) and she always used the 'warshing' machine. Especially after we came back from horsin' around in the crick. She always liked to serve us sugarmelon and muskmelon too, which we loved. Oh, and she was the only one who always gave us pop. Her dad was a driver of one of the streetcars downtown and she claimed every day they would go to one of the breweries (Burger, I think...I can't remember which one for sure) and get a pitcher of beer for him and bring it to him with his lunch. But I digress.
    Anyway, she always sounded like she was from the country but had never lived there. Odd.

    I remember a lot of the older folks sounding that way, growing up on the west side. My mom's family especially- they were from Delhi when it was still farms. "Worsh", half an "are", take a "shar", but use the "torlit" first.
