The fastest way to get a bag of popped kettle corn to the counter from the popper is through air mail, demonstrated by Mike and Lisa Romelfanger of Poppie’s Popcorne (that’s how they spell it on the fence).
The band (did they get photographed by the drone flying over Rob’s Goodtimes Grill at the Lights on Rice parade?) for the Toys for Tots fundraiser may have stayed away, but Santa (was he going to the Kalo Festival?) did not as people swarmed Ono Ono Shave Ice (and where was Kenny Ishii?) for treats at the First Saturday in Kapaa.
Girl Scouts from Troop 775 were busy fundraising for some off-island trips they were planning, and Jonathan Jay was explaining the sources for Tiny Isle’s chocolate truffles.
But no band, so the opportunity was there to chat with Jim Saylor and Jeni Kaohelauli‘i (she had a Santa sign outside Work It Out) who was out looking for something to eat before the crowd descended.
OK, it’s Wednesday so time to get ready for the soccer games — Kauai is at Island School, and Kapaa is at Hanapepe Stadium.
