There was a split decision in the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance about walking in Methuen’s Santa Parade this year…some members (those with kids) wanted to be in it, and the rest of us were strangely quiet. Mind you this is one of those few things where I would preferring having my teeth removed with a wrench than be caught dead doing . . . I would be fine either way….If there were a crowd, I’d be lost among everyone else, however seriously did not want to be one of only 3 or 4; that’s just strangely sad. So, by being extremely wishy washy I managed to get us out of it for this season..however i don’t think I will be so lucky next year. I hope there’s at least a bar at the end.
