Sukkah Sam

Years ago I encountered Sukkah Sam. He is the man that would have put Ted and Soccer Dad to shame because he could put a Sukkah up in minutes. It was a beautiful structure and something that we enjoyed immensely.

I cannot tell you much about Sukkah Sam because my memory has gotten fuzzy with time it is almost 30 years since I last saw him and for all I know he was the father of a friend dressed up as a Sukkah builder. Still I remember it will.

Every now and then when I come across photos or film footage of the Amish building a barn I remember my experiences with Sukkah Sam, the Sukkah building man.
