This weekend is the grocery store trek. My daughter has cheerleading practice on Sunday, her competition is next Saturday. She will be playing Silent Night on the flute on Sunday as part of the morning church service and this coming Tuesday is her Winter Concert at school. I also have some Christmas shopping to do. The good thing about it is that one of the stores is next to one of my favorite hobby shops. I hope to continue working on the farm house. I have a Mantua Pure Oil tank car to finish weathering. I also am working on two Athearn 2-bay hoppers (Southern composite side, Virginian ribbed side), an Athearn B&O caboose, and a MDC/Roundhouse CNJ 2-bay covered hopper.
