Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Today my car died right in the middle of the road. I was on Seminole just before Drouillard. I put on my four way flashers and waited for my help to arrive. I realize that this inconvenienced some people but there was nothing I could do. One couple in a truck stopped and asked if I would like to be moved out of the way. I told them my husband was on his way but they said they would push me. I just wanted to reach out and say thanks once again. Your kindness was greatly appreciated.
I just left Metro on Wyandotte St. in the east end. An elderly man in a wheelchair stopped me and gave me a carnation with a card stating "For you because you are special " and it was signed MOPS. I thanked him and when I got to the cashier, I asked what MOPS stood for. None of the cashiers knew, but said he comes into the store periodically and purchases fresh flowers from his own pocket and spends a lot of money. I went back into the store and found him buying more flowers. I asked him what MOPS stood for and chuckled, because he pointed to himself and said Miserable Old POS. I thanked him again for the flower and the chuckle he gave me.
To the small car that was driving down Milloy on Thursday night at 6:30... I wasn't honking at you like a crazy person because I was being a jerk. I was trying to tell you that you left your pizza in the roof of your car when you picked it up at Naples! When I was stopped behind you at Central, I tried to yell out my window but you didn't hear me. Unfortunately, as you drove on, I saw the pizza slide off into the road. I called the restaurant to tell them, in case you thought that you had left it there. I'm hoping that the offered to replace it for you if you went back.
I just wanted to say thank you to the Good Samaritan that brightened more lives than he thinks today. Thank you for helping the man down on his luck. Thank you for making me smile. Thank you for bringing up the subject of generosity and kindness in my vehicle on our way home from a crazy day. My three kids and I were on our way home from an errand filled day, when we seen a Good Samaritan giving a bag of food to the guy that is down on his luck on howard going towards the mall. I snapped a quick picture (I know, bad me having my phone out) just so we had proof that there are still people out there that care for strangers.
I don't usually vent on FB however, I am disheartened tonight to find out someone took our rocks from my parents tree and gravesite. These rocks were special as they all came from Salmonier Newfoundland,my dads home. My sister Dar and I spent time painting these with there names on it and each of the grandchildren. We placed them on the gravesite on my moms anniversary,Aug 6 this year. To think someone is that cruel and unkind of the dead is the lowest kind of human being. I am hoping I am wrong and they show back up. I have contacted the cemetery however I know this isn't the first time as I have had 3 small Christmas trees taken and I've read others have lost stuff. I put this out in hopes of shaming whoever took these as you see they are unique.
This is the greenhouse that is causing the bright glow out in the county. The one that was spotted on here.
This is my 3rd year running the Detroit Marathon and this is the 3rd year I've seen the same dancing banana out front of Tim Hortons. She smiles and cheers everyone on and I look forward to seeing her every time. Banana lady thank you for making so many people smile. See you next year!
Today our 2 dogs escaped from our yard, a service guy had left our gate opened, not his fault we shouldve checked before we let them out. Our little dog Angus was caught quickly, and kept safe by a young couple, our big dog Lucy kept running. The boyfriend kept chasing Lucy. She ran up to wyandotte where police saw her and blocked the road, so she wouldnt be hit, and she kept running. The police blocked riverside and the officer caught her at the casino. The young man caught up to her and brought her back to his place where our little dog was. My boyfriend saw the girlfriend that had our Angus, and she told him her boyfriend was bringing Lucy back. This has the happiest ending. Both dogs are ok, a little shaken, and Lucy cut her paws but she is ok.I CANT THANK THIS YOUNG COUPLE AND WINDSOR POLICE ENOUGH FOR SAVING OUR POOCHES! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
