Speaking of December, might I note that on many nights, Santa Monica feels much like Fairbanks, Alaska, and a parka wouldn't be out of place, or even a dog blasting through the sand with a cask of brandy?
Fortunately, the little guy and I have extra blankets.
And each other. And on a late summer night, that is all we really need.
