Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Spotted : To the guy in the black pick-up last night on Yprey around 7:00pm, I'm sure you were in a rush to get home and drink whatever you just picked up at the beer store. However,attemting to pass us at stop signs, tailgating our car and speeding dangerously close on a street that is 40km is not ok! I am also SURE you could read the bumper magnent that says"baby on board please drive safely" since you were so close to rear ending us several times! Give your head a shake or two, and quit endangering people!
Spotted : To the woman who heartlessly threw her christmas tree outside and smashed it in front of your young son: You should be ASHAMED of yourself!!! What could he possibly have done to deserve such treatment?? There is no excuse for it. If you are that bloody irritated, take a time out!!!! Moms need them too ya know. What you're doing is creating horrible family memories for your child. Christmas is for the kids. Why ruin it for him just because YOU'RE pissy. Go to bed. Hopefully, you will wake up in a better mood for your child's sake

Spotted : I work at a tim hortons and it's so awesome all the pay it forward going on right now many customers being generous to complete strangers and even buying gift cards to pay for several orders great to see such kindness around the holidays and always :) People helping people I love it
Spotted : Today as I was driving with my 2 children I noticed my car started to sound funny. It was as if it wanted to give out. I started to get nervous but I was close to my destination so I figured I would check it out when I parked the car. Just as I was pulling into the driveway the car just stopped. I was right in the middle of the street. I tried several time to get the car started again but had no luck. I got my girls out of the car and into the house. I stood there clueless as to what I should do seeing as I was alone. Several cars passed and gave me rude looks for "blocking" their way. A few even honked at me. Nobody even botherd to ask if I needed help. After making a few phone calls to try an get some help a nice man came by on his bike an asked if I needed help. He looked under the hood to see what the problem could be. He then proceeded to push my car into the drive way. I am so thankfull. My day had started on a bad fot but thanks to the kindness of a stranger it turned around for the best. As for those who drove by and even honked at me to get out of their way.. Be carefull how you treat others ... If that was you or a loved one you would have not waned someone to do what you did to me.
Spotted : I came home at night to find the snow plough had gone down our road and ploughed in all the driveways. When I got to my house my wonderful neighbour had cleared the entrance to my driveway A special thank you to you, can't ask for better neighbours then that.
Spotted: To my mom and dad. Even though my younger sister and I are adults now and we live on our own, you still love and care unconditionally for us. Whether we are out of food, short on the hydro bill, short on the college tuition or need a safe ride home you are always there for us. Even though we enjoy being independent, we love and appreciate the invitations to sunday family dinners, where we can both go back HOME and enjoy the house we grew up in with our parents.
Love you both always from your girls
Spotted in Windsor (Tecumseh):
I was in a pretty bad car accident at McNorton and St. Pierre this afternoon. A woman driving down the street wasn't watching and ran a stop sign, destroying the front end of my brand new 2013 minivan. It's considered a write-off. I had my two sons with me (2 1/ 2 and 14 months old) and I am 14 week pregnant with my third baby.
I would like to thank the paramedics who were on the scene in minutes, They took amazing care of my boys and me, checking us all out, keeping my kiddos calm, and even gave them new stuffed animals to play with. They were very cautious and friendly with me en route to the hospital, and double checked on me before leaving. They made me feel safe and kept me updated with everything that was happening.
I would also like to thank the guardian angel woman who appeared seemingly from nowhere, and sat on the side of the road with my 2 1/ 2 year old (who has autism) and kept him calm, distracted him with his iPad, and stopped him from wandering in to the road while I checked on my baby and spoke to the OPP. I can't thank you enough for being there, whoever you are, and wherever you came from, and I hope you see this and know how much I appreciate you. You were concerned about my injuries and suggested I sit and relax until the ambulance arrived, and those were words I needed to hear - the adrenaline rush had me going non-stop!
To the woman who hit me, I hope this was an eye opener for you - you flat out told me you "weren't watching" and you ran the stop sign. We are fine, but we could have been injured, or worse. YOU could have been injured, or worse. When you drive you are not just responsible for yourself, but you have passengers, pedestrians, and other motorists to consider. Please watch where you are going. Put down the phone, turn down the radio, stop chatting with your friend, whatever the case may be - you are in a very heavy piece of machinery and you need to focus on that.
And just an update for the paramedics and the guardian angels: The baby is fine, his/ her heart rate was 160 bpm, and when they did a quick ultrasound, s/ he did a backflip and waved for us. It's all good. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and thank you again for all you did today!
Sore, but Thankful my Babies are (ALL) okay.
