Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Spotted : To the gentleman I saw riding a bike in this insane weather in Tecumseh this morning. I thought you were Absolutely crazy, then I pulled up beside you and saw your little red "sleigh" you had in tow that was filled with wrapped gifts and it brought tears to my eyes. You Aren't one bit of crazy, you're marvellous! Kudos to you sir, and merry Christmas!
Spotted: To the wonderful expecting mom in the line at Chapter's yesterday. Thank you for being so friendly and reminding me that others are not always grumpy around the holidays. You brought a smile to my face and put me back into the Christmas spirit. I paid your kindness forward by sharing the balance of my gift card with the next customer behind me. Congratulations again on your third baby and Merry Christmas.

SPOTTED: To the young man at the Lauzon Rd vet Friday night, thank you for going out of your way to cheer me up while I was crying and so worried because of how hurt my dog was. The reassurance and those cute pictures and videos of your pets really helped. You made a horrible night a little easier and you have no idea how much that meant to me.Thank you so much.
SPOTTED : Tonight I had been in walmart, not in a good mood since it was so packed. it was so overwhelming that there were so many people inside there and not even carts left for anyone. I had realized everyone was in a bad mood and when I had my cart blocking an isle as I was looking at something and I thought here comes a lady who is going to yell at me for having it like that. when she walked up to me she said "I just wanted to say you are very beautiful, and Merry Christmas". People in good spirits help bring other peoples spirits up.

Spotted, Citizens who ride the bus:
Please remember to courteous to one another especially elderly and definitely the bus driver's!!! Don't shoot the messenger... Remember that saying? It's not they're fault if the bus is full already on a busy day and they can't pick any more passengers up or strollers/ wheelchairs. Also a simple " thank you, hello, or enjoy your day/ night" can brighten some ones mood! Bus drivers deal with thousands of people everyday and that means thousands of different personalities/ attitudes. And the front seats as clearly marked are reserved for elderly let's not forget to move for them. And mostly CAN WE ALL BE A LOT MORE PATIENT! Bags will get bumped as people will too. It's expected on crowded city buses especially during the holidays!!

I was on my way home late from the hospital (my mom is in the ICU) and I was waiting for the crosstown 2 downtown. It was utterly freezing and I started crying. Its hard to hold the tears back sometimes. When this nice man waiting for the bus too came up to me and asked if I was OK. I told him and he said I'm so sorry you have to go through that. My mom just beat cancer so I know how things must feel for you. After a few minutes of talking he handed me a little black box with golden writing on it and said this is for you its for hope. I opened it and it was a little glass Christmas bag with candy canes. I told him thank you so much it means allot. He then told me no problem you need it. And never give up always have hope, don't forget that. I just want to let you know you made my night with those words of comfort =)
