Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Mother's Day weekend! 4 out of 5 of my girlfriends went out for lunch at Carrots and Dates after an amazing Meditation class. After two hours of eating and talking we went to pay our bill just to find out that this one man that was originally eating there paid our entire bill. The workers there did their best to keep this a secret. We just want to thank whoever you are. It's nice to know that there are still kind, giving and thoughtful people out there.😊
I'd like to give a BIG SHOUT of appreciation to WHOMEVER turned in my sons LOST Wallet. His name is Kieran B. The wallet was dropped at the Sandwich St. Tim Horton's Sunday May 5th (late pm). He got a call Monday morning that the Wallet was in the property room of W'sor Police HQ & could be picked up. Everything was in tact [less $10 imo] but hey, even if the person took a finders fee. So thankful the money, health card, bank card & id were there. The complications otherwise. My son's only 20 yrs old & we were going to a Rock concert in London Monday night...he was stressed having lost his wallet.
To the awesome two Men today who drove by My daughter and I at a park.
You tossed a soccer ball out your sunroof saying "here's something for you to kick around"
THANK YOU!! We didn't have much happening there but our imaginations which was fun but, you Two made our day awesome. This was at around 3pm today Sunday and it's 6:15 and she is still playing with he soccer ball.
Thank you for your generation!
It says Windsor Soccer Club on the ball.
To the multiple people at the park on Riverdale May 4 Saturday afternoon who trudged through mud and puddles in the wet grass, got bags of treats and food out of their cars, ruined clothes and shoes and committed two hours of their time to helping us catch a dog we were watching That got out from underneath our fence.
A million times thank you!
If it hadn't been for the people that jumped in to help me I don't believe I would have caught her!
People stopped their cars, kids came from the playground, people that were leaving the park stayed to try and help catch the dog! Never have I ever been so grateful for the kindness of strangers !
This pup is safe and sound because of all of you!! Thank you !!!
Saturday May 4th at about 1:30pm, this cute family of Canadian Geese & their babies decided to cross the 4 lanes of Tecumseh Rd near Crafty Business. I witnessed them cross as oncoming traffic was busy & approaching from both ways. Thank you to all those that slowed down, stopped their vehicles and didnt honk at the geese to scare them. Thank you for respecting nature. It was a relief to see this family get safely to the other side. Hopefully, they dont make this a daily habit.
On Tuesday April 23rd. we attended a funeral at families first on Dougall and when the long procession was going to the cemetery there were so many people who pulled over out of respect, but the one act of sincere respect was at the corner of Cabana and Dougall there was a group of men working on the corner and all of them stopped what they were doing took off their hard hats and held them over their hearts until the procession passed. It is wonderful to see that even though there is a lot of upset in the world, they took the time to care. Thank you to all who pulled aside to pay respect. Sincerely appreciated.
So ever since I read the "before calling 911" post yesterday this has been bothering me. As the woman who did call the cops, I just want to clear some things up. First, it was 2 women and 1 man. Secondly, we did not call because your son and the man did not look like each other. We called because as soon as they walked out of the mans vehicle the man said "what was your name again?" and the kid said "My name is xxx" and the man said "Okay, my name is xxxx". So, I'm sorry that it upset you that we called but that was a red flag to us. We even spoke to the police officer after and he told us that the man said it was his first day working with the kid and forgot his name so he understands how that could have looked bad. We did not know that he was a Respite worker, nor did we even think that? I'm glad that your son was not in danger, but he could have been. I would have felt horrible if it was a different situation where the kid actually did not know the man and I did not call. There's been too many stories these days of children getting kidnapped so we just wanted to be on the safe side.
A group of students from Southwood school conducted a neighborhood clean up in honour of Earth Day. While they were picking up garbage in the neighborhood, a man drove up and thanked the students for being good environmental stewards. He then gave a generous financial donation to our school's Eco team. We did not get this man's name, but this kind act renewed our faith that what our students were doing was valuable and important! To the man in the white van, thank you for paying it forward! & #9829;& #65039;
