In T-town they can dream of peanut butter pie

Chicken Corner has flown to Wash, D.C., for a bit, visiting family and experiencing rain in the summertime. A quick look on Facebook today brought me news of Echo Park in a roundabout way -- via the Toronto Globe and Mail, which ran an appreciation of Echo Park that featured Delilah Bakery on Echo Park Avenue. Finding it a bit difficult to locate my bearings here, but pleased to see Delilah appreciated by our neighbours to the north (never mind that the Echo Park details now read almost like boilerplate -- Mack Sennett, radical leftists, vintage shops -- describing this well-appreciated district).

Meanwhile, D.C. is quiet, as it tends to be in August -- no Obamajams, but messy traffic nonetheless. Huge thunderstorms have left tree branches laying across roads, cutting off important access routes, making a bloody nuisance of themselves, as we say in Cali.
