Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
To the lazy person who neglected to clean up after their dog crapped on the sidewalk going through the beautiful gardens at Reaume Park, go walk somewhere else. It is people like you who ruin it for others. I enjoy walking there with my dog. There was a time when dogs werent permitted there most likely because of what I saw last night. Stay home if you can't clean up after your dog. Don't ruin it for others.
Monty Formal Wear wants to send out a huge thank you to all of the prom and graduation students, that donated a pair of their shoes to Street Help Homeless Center in Windsor and received $10.00 off of their formal shoe rental. We were able to collect approximately 100 pairs of new and gently used shoes. Christine from Street Help is pictured receiving one of the several boxes of shoes we collected.
I went to my friends place and I was fine there, it was after that that all hell broke loose. I got lost going back home, ending up in Lasalle going towards Amherstburg I think, just not in the right direction to get back to Windsor. I pulled over and this nice gentleman and his fiance gave me directions but for some reason I did the total opposite to what he told me to do. He proceeded to follow me sensing that something was not right and I pulled over again and he said to me, follow me I will get you home. In the mean time my temperature was extremely high and I did not know that. I knew that I felt warm and I had had a headache for the last few days. As I was following him I proceeded to pass him instead of following him, why??? I don know. I believe that I was getting deeper and deeper into the extreme Heat Stroke stage. After I passed Adel he lost me momentarily on Walker Road where I pulled onto a side street once again and pulled over again, why?? I dont know. The gentleman found me and asked me if he could plse drive me home. At this point I said yes,
to please do so. As I was going around the van I fell. This GOOD SAMARITAN (ADEL from A1 AUTO GLASS) got me home safe and sound. He asked to talk to one of my kids as I seemed totally lost. Both my sons came downstairs. Tim, my youngest son, got me in the elevator and he said that I was falling over and had no balance. When he saw that I was lost and could not answer some of his questions, he called an Ambulance and they took me to the hospital. My temperature in the ambulance was 41.5 which is well over 104-105 I think. They tried everything to try and get it to come down and it did not want to come down and my headache was getting worse. They did a number of blood tests, ECG, EKG, and they did a Brain Scan as they were worried some damage might have been done but those results all cam back NEGATIVE meaning that all was good with the brain scan....good results....this made me so happy. Thus, after all of
these tests, they came to the conclusion that I was suffering from EXTREME HEAT STROKE.
We are thinking that this all started on Saturday night when we went to the races and I did not have a hat on all evening, then on Sunday I went out again to the Legion to the Canada Day Dance and no doubt over exerted myself, however, I did not stay long tho as I was not feeling all that great and my head was killing me. So the Dr. gave me a bag of
intravenous and when it came to the second one I asked if I could go home. I am still feeling week and drained but it will take a couple days to get back to normal. Sorry this is so long but I wanted to fill all my amazing friends and family of what just happened to me.
I had an angel on my should because I could have had a major accident and killed myself or someone else. Had it not been for my Good Samaritan Adel and the angel on my shoulder I might not be here right now sending this to all of you. I also want to thank everyone for all the prayers and good thoughts. Again, I am sorry for it being so lengthy. I love ALL of you very much. Needless to say, this was a very scary event, today I am feeling tired and
drained, but that is ok. I AM OK
On Friday while the recycling was being picked up in our neighbourhood, I ran out to put some last minute things out, as the truck came to my house. A very kind and friendly man emptied my recycling bins wishing me a good day, and continued on. I was wishing I had a cold drink to give to him on this hot day. My 11 year old son at the time was cutting a neighbours grass at the corner and came home with a big Gatorade. I asked oh, that from the neighbor? No, it was from the guy in the recycling truck!
Thank you, thank you that was a very kind thing for you to do.
I will pay it forward.
Hi everyone, my friends car was involved in a hit and run on Lemier in Tecumseh tonight around 10:20. The car that hit hers was a black Dodge Caliber and definitely has damage to the front end and drivers side (most likely white paint transfer on it as well). Police have been notified and a report has been made, please share this with people you know and make contact if you have any helpful information! Thank you
While enjoying the day at Belle River Beach on Friday, July 6, 2018, I witnessed a man approach our area with his flip phone tucked into his waist, visible over his shirt. I could see the phone was flipped open and the camera pointing towards the outside. He stood there for a moment then made his way through the picnic tables where a large group of children from a day camp took over every table there. He noticed me walking towards him then started to leave. I confronted him and asked if he was video taping my child and EVERYONE else there. He nonchalantly shook his head and looked down at the ground. I alerted the staff there who were able to confirm the mans name as Doug who resides at the Green Acres motel down the road. The man left on his bicycle. I contacted OPP who came almost immediately to patrol the area. Please note that the staff made a comment that this Doug is there a lot. So please if you see this predator report him. I wish I would have grabbed his phone and smashed it to the ground. His description: approx 50 yrs old, skinny build, approx 5'6, wearing light green baggy shirt, shorts, Grey hat, scruffy facial hair, brown/ Grey hair, bicycle with a mount or something on the back. I didn't have my phone with me to take a picture. One other witness said he saw the man over at the park near the marina earlier. Watch out so this creep doesn't come around your children!
