It was Fonzie"s annual trip to see the train display, at Bevels Hardware. He loves it so much, he has asked to go there 3 years in a row. This year, they recognized him! I have to really haul it to get there before they stop running the trains, and close. The conductor ran them longer, so Fonzie could shoot a while!

After we leave the hardware store, we usually mosey down main street. It is only 4-5 blocks long. Its fun to window gaze, when everything is decorated for Christmas.

Then there is a little park (Seay), at the end of main street. They always have several trees all lit up, a gazebo, and a few small houses with Christmas scenes inside. And of course Santa Claus.

The JC's are usually out there giving away hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and cookies!

I truly enjoy the time with Fonzie, as much as he enjoys the trains!!
