January 24: Breakfast at Carl's Jr. on L.A. Ave. near Yosemite Ave. Leaving the restaurant I notice two pennies laying in the dirt on the curb strip of the drive-thru. I find a lot of coins tossed in that dirt strip. We drove to LAX in the evening to pick up Maya and her inaugural trip companions. They had a blast in Washington, D.C. -- went to the concert at the Lincoln Memorial, an inaugural ball, visited old friends, strolled the Mall and Smithsonian, the National Building Museum, Museum of Textiles, and saw the Movie "Mall Cop." I'd say she got her money's worth on this trip.
Making a bathroom stop along Tampa Ave. in Reseda, I found a penny.
