This is the second in the series dedicated to our beloved home, Sunnyvale. 

I have to give you all an update on Murphy Avenue as the construction never seems to end. The street which contains some of our most favorite hangouts is surrounded by loads of dirt, tractors, construction workers and metal piping. The City is updating the sewage lines down the street and this project never seems to end.

We’ve suggested time and time again about putting one of two options there instead of repaving the road for car access.  These ideas are 1) create a giant pool of water for gondola rides from one end of the block to the other 2) install grass and picnic benches under the shade of the trees. While both of our ideas have been nixed, repeatedly, we think they are good ones.

At any rate, we’re looking forward to the completion of the project.  We’ll keep you posted.
