Annapolis is a lovely city at any time of year, but it is never more beautiful than at Christmas. Gov. William Donald Schaefer and Hilda Mae Snoops very nicely included me in one of their holiday parties held at the governor's mansion this past week.Youngsters sang carols as guests arrived, and few guests went inside until they had admired a marvelous wooden train that adorns the lawn. CXS, B&O and Conrail are among the decals on the different cars and I am told that an Amish man from the Dutch Market on the Eastern Shore made the train.
