Sundays in My City

Unknown Mami

Hello! Welcome to Chico, CA for another edition of Sundays in My City. UnknownMami hosts this wonderful tour of bloggers' hometowns. Visit her site to visit the world.

Chico Plaza, where kids cool off in the funnest of ways.
Photo taken on 6/28, when temps reached 108 degrees Fahrenheit

Adults claim patches of shade. If you look to the right, you'll see a Food Not Bombs* booth.
*A volunteer-run organization that serves free meals to help those in need, and to protest the billions of dollars that our government spends on defense.
I stayed inside a nicely air conditioned house and prepared this feast for my birthday. Help yourselves to leftovers. There's plenty. (Ice-cream's in the freezer, and cold chocolate stout is in the fridge, along with chilled chocolate wine and chocolate soda...Notice a rather predictable party theme?!)

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a peaceful Sunday and new week. Stay cool.

  7. Ooohh lots of yummy goodies.

    Looks like a nice place to relax and have fun too.

    According to my Blogger reading list, you haven't published anything for 3 months. Wow, someone is impersonating you pretty good. Hospital body swap?

  15. Happy birthday! That is quite the feast you have on the table. So relieved that you didn't starve on the Big Day. hahahaha.

    I didn't know that it was your birthday, but now I am even happier that you got tagged again this past Thursday. Did it hit your birthday??? If not, it was close. Hope you like it:) Keep up the good writing!!!

  16. Dorothy, I lekker chocolate too.

    David, I'm happy to make you happy. Thank you.

    Alex, oops, I knew I forgot one thing. Sorry.

    Anthony, that's so annoying. Google reader and I have a love hate relationship. I love to think it doesn't hate me as much as it does.

    Martha, those little notes are very cute. Thank you.

    Vanessa, is that what it is? No speaka Dutch, but I like that "chocolate" is spelled the same.

    Robin, again? How sweet of you! It was close enough. Thank you!

    LG, I hope you have strong A/C.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

    Be well. Stay cool. Ice cream helps.

  35. Happy Birthday! I love that food cart set up there. Our parks offer those for school age children every week day during the summer. Some of the kids might now get anything to eat that day otherwise, where they would have if they were in school. Such a great program!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, shoot, ignore that last comment hahaha! My back button took me to your comment form instead of the one that was meant for :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. LD, I hope you satisfied your craving. Sorry and/or you're welcome. Thanks for the b-day well wishes.

    Pat, coming right up. =)

    No problem, Theresa. Blogger is a weird thing. I agree, food programs like that are priceless.
