Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Spotted : To everyone who took the time to shovel their own sidewalks/ driveways (let alone the amazing people who did more than their own), thank you so much! Although not everyone has to go out in the snow, if you shovel the sidewalk in front of your house it means a lot for people walking.
Sincerely, the girl who had to spend an extra 20 minutes walking because so many sidewalks and roads were unplowed :(
To all the people that dont shovel their sidewalks, Are you kidding me with this?!?! The snow is deep and it is EXTREMELY difficult to push a stroller through about a foot of snow. You are being very very inconsiderate of other people. Signed, a very distressed mother that had to push her 5 month old's stroller on the road and almost got hit several times.
After the freeze we got last week, no salting and heavy ice on side streets. Lets just say many of us were frustrated.
Spotted : Today on Chandler as I watched my nieghbour with a serious heart condition out shoveling I saw the plow truck coming. The neighbour stopped at the end of his drive to catch his breath just as he recieved 3 feet of plowed snow from the plow truck. However, the plow truck then breaked, backed up and cleared out the snow from this man's driveway. So thank-you, its put a huge smile on my face and my husband then went out and shoveled a few neighbours homes too!
Tis The Season....
Just about a year and a half ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident on oulette street where Dougal merges. I was coming around the bend in the right hand lane, believe it or not I was travelling the speed limit, and as I approached the Dougal merge a gold Oldsmobile had blown through the stop sign ultimately cutting me off. With few seconds to react I tried to swerve out of the way and ended up crashing into the median and flipping over my bike. When I woke up the bike was laying on top of me and I suffered a grade 5 A/ C separation which is broken for life. Cars and trucks continued to drive past me like it was no big deal. One lady stopped to help me and call an ambulance. She also told me her name was Angel. She asked that I had called the number she put in my back pack to let her know if I was going to be ok. I lost her number, so I am hoping this will find it's way to her. Thank you so much for being my guardian angel that day and for the compassion you showed. We need more people like you out there. BTW I am ok, I have a full time job, just bought a house with the mother of my unborn daughter and couldn't be happier. Spotted: Long over due!!
To the guy in Remington park plowing the roads with his four wheeler:
I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!
Thank you so much.
You are a blessing 😊
Signed, A very happy neighbour on Bensette Street
Spotted : to the bartender at level I think ? You gave me your shot boots. I really appreciate it but I would like to give them back.
I hope your feet stayed warm.
Spotted : To my amazing neighbors on Cherrylawn Cresent. I can't thank you enough for the fact that every year for the last five years whenever we have a bad snow storm I always come home to a shoveled driveway. Thank you to all my snow fairies from a very Grateful Gal who will pay it forward whenever she can. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!!
To those people out there shopping for the perfect Christmas gift....a puppy
To the many people out there who are thinking that a puppy for Christmas will be the perfect gift, please stop to reconsider. Puppies are a wonderful addition on Christmas morning, however puppies grow very quickly into dogs long after December 25th. Puppies require your time, dedication and loyalty to ensure that they have the chance to grow into a well-behaved member of your family. Puppies are not meant to be disposable come February/ March when the novelty has worn off & you decide that you have had enough. If you have given the issue a lot of thought and a puppy is right for your family at this time, I wish you many years of happiness with your four legged family member, however if getting a puppy is a spontaneous decision, please stop and reconsider a smaller pet that does not require as much work. The humane society has many smaller animals, such as birds, bunnies, cats & even lizards that are looking for a forever home.
Just my thoughts….Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from a dog owner
