I always enjoy the annual Montana Avenue Holiday Walk and thought it was especially good this year.

I do, however, think that it would be more fun and safer if Montana Avenue was closed off from Seventh to 17th streets. It becomes very difficult to navigate the sidewalks at times what with the many strollers and dogs (mine, PJ, included), plus having the entertainment in the street could lead to making it even more festive.

My one complaint is that as I walked PJ this morning, I saw all the garbage lying next to the trash bins because they were overflowing. I previously wrote about the excessive street cleaning in the city. For one day and one person, couldn’t we cut down on the street cleaning and use that person to do a trash pickup on Montana Avenue between 7:30 and 8 p.m.? The garbage was still overflowing Sunday morning!
