Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Some of you may have seen me at the Devonshire mall this afternoon (Dec. 7) sporting a strange "Sherlock Holmes" greatcoat with an extremely strange (yet warm) hat.
To clear the air, am I in no way a racist nor do I sympathize with racist ideologies. I am merely a history buff and history RE-ENACTOR! The greatcoat I was wearing is from the Napoleonic era and is extremely comfortable and warm.
The hat (a Busby) although from a German battalion (at the time was allied with the British with absolutely NO CONNECTION with Nazi scum) was an elite German Hussar (cavalry) regiment from Brunswick which had a whole different look than the Deaths-head that you've all grown to known and associate with racist scum.
With that said, I want to thank those of you who've stopped to ask me about my regalia, knowledge is truly power. I was indeed breaking in my new hat for an upcoming re-enactment coming up in the New Year (it's handmade to fit snuggly around the head and can be very uncomfortable). For those of you who gave me a death stare (yeah, I noticed) and uttered threats and other unpleasantries towards me.... your ignorance is a life sentence in itself, your stupidity knows no bounds.
Again, thank you for all those who were inquisitive enough to boldly approach a stranger and learn something new (I hope)
To the several individuals that stopped and helped me Monday, thank-you. Yesterday (December 3) I was walking along Grand Marais on my way to the South Windsor Vision Centre. I have MS and do walk with crutches but walking short distances usually isn't a problem. Yesterday was the exception to the rule. I fell between the driveway and the sidewalk of my destination; flat on my back.
One person stopped, then another and another. From the ladies who walked up and down Grand Marais, looking for my glasses to the gentlemen who stood me up and got me into the clinic, these everyday heroes made sure I was okay, got to my destination and was able to call my hubby.
I am okay. My pride was hurt the most. Falling down and not being able to stand up, well... it is not something I recommend you do in public. But if it happens to you, know that there are wonderful people walking among us. They will stop whatever they are doing, and help a complete stranger.
To the people that came to my aid (outside South Windsor Vision Centre on Grand Marais just east of Dominion) thank-you. I can't remember if I said this to each of you yesterday so I tell you all, you've been SPOTTED!!
I just want to thank Santa and Mrs. Claus for taking time out of their shopping to take a pic with my daughter and I. They where at the Metro on tec and central. My daughter is on cloud nine 😊!!!!!!
My downtown experience Saturday night. I was standing on the side walk outside the Bull and Barrel with Lilyana. It was raining and although she was bundled and had an umbrella I was struggling to keep her warm, dry and she was agitated.
A woman walked up and gave me a new poncho for her, I put it on her but it was big and the wind was catching it.
Another mother walked up kneeled down and tied the bottom of it and around the collar like lilyana was he own child.
She said "were professional campers we know the tricks"
It felt so good to be on the recieving end of a good deed. It takes a village. Thank you.
Our store T-shirts & More got robbed on Tuesday morning at 9am. This guy sliced open our curtain with a knife and was also walking around with the knife exposed. He hit us 3 times in a span of 5 minutes. He stole about 40 shirts. We are offering a cash reward to catch him and bring him to justice. Please call or email our store with any information.
I want to give a huge shout out to these amazing people! They were out in the cold handing out hot chocolate and doughnuts to people tonight!

Last night was the worst night of my entire life. My beloved brother passed away suddenly from cancer. The team at Met Hospital tried desperately to revive him, but his body couldn't handle it. In amongst this heroes stood out his nurse Dolly. She was tender and caring with him while he was there and soothing to us after he passed. As horrible as it all was, Dolly was able to bring comfort as our world was being ripped apart. Dolly you are a hero and an angel. I will never forget your genuineness, kindness and compassion. You will be forever appreciated.
