Papa's 2012 Christmas Wonderland
Hello old friends and welcome aboard new members. Iím still a few weeks away from starting this yearís decorations but I thought I would go ahead and start my annual thread.
Last year at this time papa was sporting quite the Santa figure at nearly 300 pounds and a nearly white beard to hide my extra chins. In February I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but Iím pleased to report that as of this posting Iím down to 215 pounds due to diet and exercise and I feel better than I have in years.
Most of you know I spend about 4 months a year consumed by Christmas .During the other 8 months I am working on my O scale Model Railroad Layout. The layout known as The Ohio North Coast Railroad has somewhat of a Christmas theme as the backdrop is comprised of Department 56 Christmas in the City buildings.
I have wanted to add some kind of winter scene for a while so this year I have created Christmas Mountain.
