On April 2 I was feeling sentimental, the way you feel when a cavernous, blue-sky weekend day just unfolds before you, and rather than try to wrestle it this way or that, you simply suspend the weekend schedule and give in to the laziness of the day and see where it takes you. For me, it took me to the Harvest Market in Montrose. Although I feel sort of self-conscious about being so effusive, so giddy and brimming-over with a sense of nostalgia about the day, I also feel compelled to write it all down and clear my head of the imagery or I will surely not be able to concentrate at work this week.

But the company that has inspired the Elvis-like devotion to the lightly caramelized popped kernels won't be at the farmers market until March.

Kindergarten students at Verdugo Woodlands Elemen- tary School celebrated "Feast Day" at school Wednesday, during which students put on Pilgrim and Native American outfits and ate vegetable soup, friendship salad and corn bread.
