It was black Monday; Penelope's was closed. But every cloud has a silver lining, so I anticipated a cup of black tea at Starbucks. I love the kids who work there. Their smiles make dismal rainy mornings brighter. Talin served up a cup of Earl Grey and reminded me that I take two packets of honey. How did she remember? Immediately I went to work on my fourth rewrite of the great American novel. The din of a busy Starbucks morning did not inhibit my concentration, as I've been known to tune out a 122mm rocket attack.

Santa, that man who wears a red suit and carries a bag chock-full of toys, is getting ready for his yearly mad dash around the world in just two days. My grandchildren are very excited. They wrote their letters to him weeks ago and are hoping that they will find what they asked for under the tree on Christmas morning. Of course my little grandchildren in England - Aidan, Lucan, and Morgan - will get to open their presents way before their Palo Alto cousins, Catherine and Ryan.

I thought it strange that Klaus Giannini was an atheist. He was Italian, and all Italians were Catholics. Klaus was enrolled at DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, but I doubt he ever went. He was a tough kid who just didn’t give a damn. We knew each other from the streets, but we weren’t friends; Klaus had no friends. His father was a brute and threatened everyone. There was no rationale in his anger; he was just angry. He would beat his son with an iron, and Klaus carried the bruises that proved our suspicions.
