We'd all been told it could happen, that members of the very rarest of species, pedestrianus lacanadanus, could make regular appearances on Foothill Boulevard. But I was chief among the doubters. Oh, sure, we'd see one or two bipeds along the main drag every now and again, but they were usually attached to skateboards. Or, they were the church-going variety, dashing from the sidewalk in front of La Cañada Presbyterian across the street to the Plaza shopping center, where they'd left their cars for the duration of a Sunday service.

Peter Wannier, who co-owns Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse with his wife Lenora, said that this year's sales were an improvement on last year's.

Q. The holidays are coming and instead of feeling cheer, I feel exhausted and overwhelmed with a sense of dread. Can you give me some insight? It's called the Holiday Blues, and you're not alone. The condition can flow from many roots, with some of the more common ones being fatigue, unrealistic expectations, financial issues, and maybe the inability to be with loved ones. Then there's shopping, parties and maybe houseguests for the holidays. With all that, many can develop symptoms like headaches, drinking and eating too much, insomnia, anxiety and guilt.

I often hear people bemoan the fact that they miss their independence, or claim that they refuse to give up their independence, no matter what. It makes me wonder how we all define ?independence.? It doesn?t necessarily mean doing everything yourself. Let?s roll back the clock a few years, and look at how you have made changes in your life as time has gone by. Have you hired a gardenerto help with your yard work even though you might still enjoy going outside and puttering around in the garden?

But for As people trundle home from shopping with trees lashed to the tops of their cars and a trunk full of gifts, there are those among us who are less fortunate. I happened to meet such a woman early one morning last week while driving through a back alley short-cut. She had shoulder length white hair, wore a heavy blue parka and sat on the curb smoking. Her expression seemed to indicate she had no idea where she was or how she'd gotten there, and was mulling over her options.

For those of us who look forward to Thanksgiving, it's hard to imagine the appeal of a $99 big-screen TV or an extreme discount on socks and underwear, but Black Friday has now moved to Thanksgiving Day and shoppers are already camped out at box stores, waiting for Thanksgiving sales. Shame on the chief executives of these chains: Best Buy, Toys R Us, Macy's, Target, Walmart, Kmart, Old Navy, Staples, Sears, JCPenney, Michael's and Kohl's. Shame on you for competing with our nation's holiday by starting your Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day. Black Friday was bad enough, but now the irony-impaired marketing teams at Best Buy will sell you a nice TV so you can watch “Modern Family.” At Macy's, there's deep-discounted kitchenware, essential to creating a festive family atmosphere on Dec. 25, unless you are camped out that day waiting for the next sale, while my erstwhile favorite store, Target, will sell you a copy of “The Romney Family Table: Sharing Home-Cooked Recipes & Favorite Traditions.” That's why I was happy to see one of our son's U.S. Naval Academy classmates featured on an American Express ad and on the Today show.

It's a Saturday afternoon at Foothill Records and the regular clientele is starting to trickle in: local music enthusiasts looking for a rare used vinyl record, or maybe even a CD. Carol Schofield sits in a chair behind the register, shouting out to customers to ask how they're doing. Most seem to know what they're looking for, and one regular informs her that he's going to look in the back room of the store. A young man drops a Doors LP onto the countertop and waits for her to inspect it. Price labels are absent from the majority of the stock, and Schofield typically makes a deal with the customer once they bring their purchases to the front.

On Saturday afternoon, as customers inside La Cañada's Sport Chalet shopped for shoes, attire and sporting goods, a small group of women were breathing underwater for the very first time. They knelt at the bottom of the store's instruction pool, communicating silently with hand signals as enormous bubbles clamored upward and burst into the hot summer air. After a few laps around the bottom, the three students and instructor rose to the surface.

A long-running flower shop in the city is looking to move back to Foothill Boulevard, where the business first opened in 1959. Edward Eiji Tomita and Hannah Tomita ran Eiji's Florist for many years on Foothill in a strip mall where the Flintridge Proper restaurant stands today. After a fire caused damage to the property in the 1980s, the Tomitas moved to their current location on 4534 Rinetti Lane. Their daughter, Lisa, now runs the shop.
