Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
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.

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.
Spotted: Thank you to the 2 ladies who offered my fiance and I one of their plastic bags when they noticed one of ours had ripped and our stuff came out.

from a very grateful girl at Walmart on Tecumseh. :)
Is frustrated and having a hard time explaining to my children why Santa doesn't bring them iPod, iPad, ugg boots, or the latest in video game technology but he brings it to all their friends.I wish parents would take into consideration on who their gifts are from! Those big expensive gifts should be from mommy and daddy and the average toys and gifts should be from Santa! It has made me feel terrible, they ask "have I not been good enough" "Santa doesn't like me" but they have been good and 9X outta 10 better then most of the spoiled children out there! I would have an easier time explaining to them that yes so and so got those gifts from their parents cause they can afford them and we just aren't able to right now but to explain to them that Santa bought their friends those gifts and not them! I think parents need to aware of who gives what for Christmas! Save the affordable gifts for Santa and the big gifts from family!
Signed a mother who isn't ready to speak the truth of Santa to her kids but feels she might have to......
Spotted : I would like to give a big thank you to the guys at NAPA AUTO PARTS on Tecumseh Rd East. I bought wiper blades for my van 2 months ago that weren't working so well . I stopped in and the guys gave me new blades and installed them free of charge , and I got a Merry Christmas on the way out .. Merry Christmas to the NAPA TEAM .. Thank you ..
