Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
A big thank you to all the nurses in the Day Surgery at Met on December 5th for helping us out with our Mom. Especially those two for taking such good care of our mom at the end of your day. We seriously cannot thank you enough.
Spotted : I want to give a shout out to the owner LeeAnn of Magic Hair Studio on Drouillard in Windsor. She knew I had been out of work for over 2 years and would not charge me for my cut. What a sweetheart you are. May you and your family have a very safe, happy Christmas. Thank you.
To the driver of a silver newer model caravan driving on the EC Row towards bell river I suggest you get you self a blue tooth device before you kill someone because swerving into someone lane and fully cutting them off at 110km can be deadly for both parties. You been spotted.
To all of the awesome drivers out there, who, in their hectic travels today still managed to pull off to the side of the road during my aunt's funeral procession.... Many thanks for your respect and kindness. For those oblivious to the long line of limos, the Hearst and loved ones in tow... Especially the driver who continued to turn off the expressway on Dougall DIRECTLY INTO THE PROCESSION, almost colliding directly into our van... Please note my entire life was in that van you almost creamed into - my husband, my kids and my parents. A reminder in the busy-ness of the holidays, to please be AWARE. Drive safely and be respectful when you see those little flags a top vehicles.
This is kind of an oldie, but I still gratefully think of it everyday. 8 years ago I was pregnant with my first son and extremely sick everyday. I don't mean just your regular ol' morning sickness. I got it all day and night. I fainted often and barely gained any weight throughout the whole pregnancy. My doctor prescribed me Diclectin. When I went to the Shoppers Pharmacy downtown I was informed that it'd be $90, because I had no coverage. An older American woman handed me a hundred dollar bill without hesitation. I tried to deny it, but she insisted that it'd make her feel better to know that my baby and I feel better. I cried on the spot and I will always remember her generosity in my time of need. & lt;3
Because of you I try my best to donate whatever I can, whenever I can.
Today, I was sitting at McDonald's on drouillard and Tecumseh. I was sitting on the floor charging my phone because that was the only outlet available. I had my legs out and my back was leaning against a wall. This man pretended to trip over my feet to make me smile... I just want to say thank you to this man. I've been having a bad week and he made me feel a little bit better and put a smile on my face.
You have been spotted.
To everyone who works in retail throughout the holidays. Just remember, for all the mean and ignorant people who feel that everything is your fault...there are the nice ones that put a smile on your face and will joke with you. Most of all, remember the holidays will not last forever!
SPOTTED : to the young couple that was sitting next to me on the bus... it was so hard for me to sit there and listen to your ignorance. we stopped at a red light, they looked over at a man who was simply waiting his turn to cross the street. the boyfriend said to his girlfriend: "ugh, see that guy over there.. I can tell he's a faggot. Yuck.. so disgusting." Homophobia is horrible. If you can love your girlfriend, why can't he love his boyfriend? Either way, it's still LOVE.
Sincerely, a Windsorite who didn't stand up for that innocent man. I teared up a bit my way home from my bus stop. I know what I will say next time.
