Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
We were attending a hockey practice for my ten-year old grandson at the Volmer Complex on Thursday evening. While we were waiting for him after practice we noticed a lady had left her purse hanging over a chair in the lobby. No one was around where the purse was left, so we stood by to see if anyone would come back for it. After 10 minutes my daughter asked the lady sitting at the other table if she could describe the lady who was sitting behind here. There was no one with that description that we could see. My daughter brought the purse to the table and asked myself and the other lady to witness her going into the purse, so we could at least know what the lady looked like. Fifteen minutes had gone by and finally a panicked mom came running in looking for her purse. While my daughter was trying to find the owner of this purse she put down my grandsons fit bit not even realizing it. She was more concerned about finding the owner of the purse. We left the arena and realized she did not have the fit bit. My grandson was so upset as this was his birthday gift, and he has been taking great care of it. When she called the arena the next morning a good, honest person turned in the fit bit. So two good deeds were done by two different people. I want to thank this amazing, honest person who turned the fit bit into the lost and found. I have one happy grandson. Thank you
Thank you to the lady at the mall today who went out of her way to make my day a little better i work construction and sometimes you think alottttt while working. I was having a terrible day i went outside for a smoke because my day was so bad (i never take unscheduled breaks) i was squatted down next to the garbage so i would be unseen (didnt want to get in trouble) she told me i could sit on the bench with her but explained my situation to her she wanted to cheer me up and could see i was sad she told me and its tough working with men And that she admired me. She said that she wants her daughter to look up to a woman like me thank you for boosting my ego you really made my day and made me appreciate myself a little more. I hope i see you again. You were wearing all black dark hair a little bigger frame i think you were working in the mall you are an amazing person.
Hope you stumble across this one day
I'm writing you because I'd like for my co worker to be recognized for his generosity. I was speaking to a good friend of mine today Mr. Antoni Tambunan and he mentioned that there are more people that are in need of the strike pay than him and that he would like to donate his check this week of $250.00 to his fellow co workers on the picket line. This action of kindness didn't come as any surprise to me, if you knew Tony you'd know that he's incredibly thoughtful and generous to others. Tony said that it's his time to give back to fellow casino coworkers because they all supported him and raised money for his family when the devastating tsunami destroyed his family in Indonesia. I cannot speak highly enough about this man, he truly has a heart of gold. Tony is a Guest Service Representative at Caesars Windsor, he takes pride in what he does for a living and does it well. He is the first Canadian to win a Recognition of Service Excellence Award (ROSE) during the annual Detroit Metro Conventions and Visitors Bureau ROSE Awards banquet. At 4 o'clock today at the Unifor Local 444 Union trailer located on Glengary Street he will make his donation to the people that have given to him in the past, it's his way of saying thank you for everything his co workers have done for him.
I was in line to pay for my food at the U and I heard the clerk say to multiple people that their meal was covered. When I got there, she said this to me as well; she said a student has a lot of money left on their uWincard and decided to pay for people's meals to get rid of it. This act of kindness goes SUCH a long way, especially during the stressful season of exams. Whoever you are, thank you for making my day.
I work at the Zehrs on Manning rd. and when I approached my manager about doing something in April for Autism Awareness (my son has autism) they were so encouraging and supportive to help! We are having a BAKESALE With all proceeds going to Autism Ontario, so come and show your support Saturday April 28th from 8am TIL 1pm
Remember it's the Zehrs on Manning RD.
My brother- in- law James Kocsis (an ex Windsor Fireman) had his funeral yesterday 16 April, 2018 at Windsor Chapel on Tecumseh Road East, Windsor, Ontario.
During the procession to the gravesite, I was absolutely amazed at the number of cars, trucks, business vans, and taxis etc. that pulled over to the side of the road along the way. I have not seen that amount that paid their respects in years. They stopped along Banwell Road, and Highway 42 for the long trip.
So Windsor and Tecumseh people are obviously very respectful and courteous. I was amazed and thankful.
So to all those that stopped and waited, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Yesterday my son asked me what kind of clothes they wore in Ancient Egypt. We talked about it, and it got me thinking about my high school history classes.
I graduated from Riverside in 2003, and my history teacher for most of those years was Ms. Siddle. She was such an amazing teacher. She really knew what she was teaching, and you could tell that she was really interested in what she was teaching. I still have almost all of my notes and "cheat sheets" from her classes. I was a lazy high school kid. I skipped class and I just didn't want to be there. I recently learned that she is still at Riverside, teaching history, and I wish I could go back and learn from her now that I'm an adult. It's really the only thing that would ever make me want to go back to high school. Her whole class was dictation and note taking, but she made history interesting, and funny, and animated. Those classes were really something special and I'm thankful to have taken them. Any of you kids that have her for a teacher now, cherish her. There aren't too many teachers like her.

I just wanted to let everyone know what great service my mother and I got yesterday at Armandos on Walker Rd. On a very rainy and gloomy day our server, Margaret, made us laugh and treated my mother with so much kindness that I will tell everyone I know to go eat there! Their food is always excellent and we will eat there in the future but in this world of people so eager to post negative things I just wanted to let everyone know what a delight Margaret was. Thank you so much!
