Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Yesterday I took my son and 5 of his friends out to Swiss Chalet for my son's 9th birthday lunch. While we were sitting there a man came up to the table and said "I hear it's someone's birthday, who's birthday is it" to which my son replied "it's mine". The man asked how old he was and then wished him a happy birthday and a Merry Christmas and walked away. We were so thrilled that someone actually took the time out of their day to come over and have a personal conversation with him, that hardly never happens. A few minutes later our waitress came to the table and told us that the gentleman that had come over had paid for the entire meal. That was 6 children and three adults. We were so shocked, tears started rolling down our faces....it was an amazing act of kindness that will never be forgotten by any of us, it sure did show all those kids first hand just how good it feels to do for others. From a very honored mom!
Just wanted to let you know that the Town of Essex is having their Santa Claus Parade on December 14th, with the parade starting at 6:30 pm. All information on the parade can be found on the following link: http:/ / www.canadasouthfestivals.com/ event-114/ essex-santa-claus-parade
Just want to vent about it horrible Santa experience at Devonshire today. Free or not an hour and a half wait and then pushed out by the next family after 30 seconds and 4 quick snaps. Didn't even get a chance to try and get my 10 month old to not be scared by Santa! Ridiculous! They definitely didn't longer on the bigger kids talking to Santa and pushed my babies aside like they weren't as important! So sad!
Spotted: I just wanted to say my fiancee and I took our 2, 16 year old daughters to the windsor santa claus parade and was very dissatisfied. This parade needs to move back to ouellette where it seemed more festive and alot more spectators. Also having this parade along the river makes it more cold and uncomfortable for all as I stood there and witnessed myself watching many people leave before it was half over and the floats are not anywhere what they used to be. There used to be so much effort put in to this parade that made it seem magical. Now it feels like you are in the middle if nowhere watching a small town parade. I will say though it was so nice to see all the smiles on the little ones faces. And the little boy in the blue and white checked snowsuit with the santa hat on you made the parade by entertaining everyone and dancing for us all in the middle of the road before the parade even started you were a champ!

To my son, due to his quick thinking and actions, got his co-worker safely out of their plant after an explosion, and knew enough to open the bay doors, so the fire did not spread throughout the entire plant ! I pray that his co-worker that received 2nd degree burns is ok, and recovers quickly !I am so thankful they both got out safely !!

Spotted : I have created this event that will be helping many homeless in Windsor please post flyer so we can effect the most people
Spotted: A group of very young boys, I'm guessing ages 6-8, (a hockey team, maybe) had dinner last night at the East Side Mario's in Windsor. I was delighted to see how very well behaved and polite they were with the staff of the restaurant and with other patrons having dinner, as it was a fairly busy night. It was pure happiness to see the joy on their faces, and clapping along as other people celebrated birthdays. (there were many) Praise to the parents of these fine young boys, and to the staff of East Side Mario's for making last night's dinner a truly blessed experience.
A happy girl in awe of the simple joys that little people bring.
Id like to spot a very kind women whom i just met at petro canada on techumseh and oulette. It was one hour before my 18th birthday and on my way home from work i wanted to buy my very first lottery ticket so i could scratch it at midnight, when i presented both my ids and told the cashier my birthday was in an hour after a half hour of checking to see if it was even valid my id was denied and i was told to come back in the morning. The women who was standing behinde kindly offered to buy me it for my birthday and save me the hassel of waiting until the morning for the one hour that i was still 17. To that i say thank you for helping me make my 18th feel more official and for being so generous.
