When I arrive at the Old Man’s house, cousin Naomi’s Christmas card is on the hall carpet. She has written a message inside the card.
To the left-hand side of the living-room window of number 35, I see what at first I think are Christmas lights. Eventually I conclude that what I am seeing is the light from a lava-lamp.
