The following day, Monday, November 26, was our last day in Los Angeles.
As our grandchildren were back in school and our daughter and son-in-law were back at work, Tom and I had the day to ourselves. We opted to hang around the South Bay area for the day, starting with breakfast at our favorite Hawthorne neighborhood hole-in-the-wall,
So we returned to the mailbox into which the girls dropped their letters. They became entranced by a clock in the yard counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until Christmas, and so we stayed for quite a while, watching the clock count down.
