Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
9 year old Braiden found our boy Hunter that has been missing 74 days in the little Italy area. He is truly a community hero. Having seen our many posters up he continued to look for him whenever he could. Thank you to his super proud mom Roshelle for letting him track down our cat. Dozens of friends pitched in to add to my original reward of $100 to make the gift of $1025.00 going to Braiden.
Saw an accident happen behind me January 18th approx. 3:30 pm right in front of the east end Walmart. A Silver Dodge Durango and a Blank Lincoln collided. The Lincoln ended up on Walmart's front lawn by the bus stop. the Durango had young kids in it and a young-looking mother who was obviously shaken up. I asked if they were ok but they quickly ran to the other vehicle and to talk to the police. There was a police officer at the light who I believe witnessed the accident. There were other police units on scene with an ambulance very quickly so I didn't stay. Just want to see if anyone knows the drivers of these 2 vehicles. I Just want to make sure everyone involved is ok especially the children into the Silver Durango. I Really hope everyone is ok and the only damage was the vehicles. If anyone knows the drivers or maybe the drivers will see this, maybe you can let me know an update. praying all are safe and sound tonight

Found a dodge key fob on the Ganachio Trail extension near Riverside Drive. No key insert was found.
Last night I was scrolling through Facebook and I saw a post on a Windsor buy and sell page. It was a Maltese puppy that needed to be rehomed. I was interested, so I messaged the lady inquiring about it. She said the puppy was a 12 week old male Maltese, potty trained & friendly with kids and other pets. I then noticed that the initial post on the buy and sell page was taken down, so I asked her why. She said that she deleted it cause she doesn't want many people because it's legit and wants a serious buyer. That's when I thought, well that's fishy... why wouldn't you want multiple people interested? I then asked her how much the puppy was & she said $300. Umm yeah right loll that kind of puppy is well around a couple thousand dollars & puppy's are in high demand right now, so that's another red flag. I asked her where the puppy came from & she said she's the owner. I continued to ask, so you're the breeder? And she said yes. She said she has paperwork of his updated vaccinations and that he got them at Walker Road animal hospital. I then asked her if I could see photos of the Mom & Dad dogs, because if you're a breeder, you must have the Mom & Dad there too. She ignored those messages for hours. She then messaged me at 2am and said hello. When I woke up I replied and asked her if she still had the puppy. I knew it was a scam at this point. I asked her what her address was. She gave me her address and told me it was a house. I googled the address and it was in Windsor housing, therefore it isn't a house. She told me I could pick her up at 8pm tonight cause she gets off work at 7pm. I told her I would be there at 8pm tonight. She then continued to say that I needed to make a deposit to secure the purchase of the puppy because a lot of people are interested and then I would pay the rest in cash. There was no way in hell I was about to do that ahah so I said I don't have etransfer so I can't. She then asked me if I had PayPal. I said nope, I will give you cash and you give me the puppy. She agreed. I asked her if the puppy was in good health and she ignore my message. My dad then drove by the address that she gave us and called me to tell me that that address doesn't exist. The address she gave us was 2275 Sierra Drive Windsor ON, 29E 2Y9. My dad drove by and saw every address leading up to that but not that address. There was just a big empty lot. I messaged the lady and said the address she gave me isn't a house. She then blocked me. I kinda had a feeling from the get go that it was a scam, there were so many red flags, but I wanted to have a convo so I could post it on here for everyone to see. It's honestly sad. She got photos of a Dog from google and tried to scam people out of there money. Happens everyday folks. Beware. Please do not fall for this. Please Share. This lady's name is Rokibat Jayeoba. I attached photos of the woman, the dog and screenshots of our conversation. Please share!
Spotted: on January 3rd, my husband went out to shovel the snow this morning and was surprised to find this special delivery outside. What a wonderful gesture of kindness. Thank you so much to LuLu and Lana (and family), who we've never met, for the beautiful card and gift. This truly made our day. ❤️
To the man that pulled over to help me when my car slid off the expressway on new years day, thank you so much for your kindness. I have never been in an accident before and was very shaken up, despite there being no damage to my car or myself (thank God!). I really appreciate you waiting with me and calling a tow truck. I wish I got your name but I was so caught up in the moment that I never asked. Thank you again!!!!
I would like to say thank you very much to the gentleman in dark Jeep Cherokee with the personalized plates. Around 10:15pm December 30th at the Tim's on tecumseh rd ( next to red lobster ). You had paid it forward. What seemed like a thoughtless gesture to you, made my complete night. You had bought my tea and lunch as I was on my way into work. You gave me hope in the human race again my friend! Happy New Year Sir!
Your gesture has not gone unnoticed!
The Tired PSW in the silver car behind you. :)
I just saw something that warmed my heart..
A young man giving what seemed to be a homeless man sitting on the curb at Tim Horton's a nice hot coffee and a warm smile
To that young man at the Tim's on Goyeau by City Hall THANK YOU for being a decent human!!
You've given me some faith that there is still good in this world
