Old Sam is a bum. He sits in front of the Ralphs on Sunset reading from his Bible and lecturing passers-by. I had stopped by the market to pick up a few things on the way back from picking up Rachael's five year old son Matthew.

Rachael's going 'Out of town' again and Nina's going to watch him for her. I'm staying with Nina since the earthquake wrecked my place so I offered to pick the kid up. Mat and I end up spending most of the time together anyway and I like the drive up to his Mom's place. You should see it, a Schindler I think, with a view, you know, up off Nichols Canyon ... beautiful.
