This weekend was busier than most. We spent a great deal of time running around doing all those little errands that seemed to have been piling up for quite a while. Of course part of it involved getting stuff we need for my daughter’s Girl Scout Troop’s trip to New York City this coming weekend. My son’s pinewood derby car did OK. He got eliminated in the third round which is far better than last year. Last year he had a second place and third place. This year he got one 1st place, three 2nd places, and one 3rd place. My daughter finished out basketball with a win. On the modeling front things started out well. I made and installed grab irons on the F&C Coal Car. I finished one side and half the other, although I made all the grab irons I need for the second side. I added weights to the five Athearn hoppers and painted them so they are finished except for loads.
