Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
A special THANK YOU to a very special employee at Shoppers Drug Mart in Belle River. Maggie at the cosmetics counter!! You went out of your way to make me feel comfortable with my irritating request to do returns, re-buy and add to my purchase lastnight. Maggie you are a lovely gal and you went above and beyond helping me and my friend Jessica. Shoppers is lucky to have you! Amazing personality!
I really want to thank the customer who looked to be in his 40's long grey white beard with the black face mask on for giving me that $20.00 Thank you very much and if I don't see or hear from you again have a Merry Christmas
To the person who backed into my van between 8 and 10 pm on Merritt dr in the west end of windsor and then took off without notifying me I just want to say I understand. It's scary hitting someone's car, people definitely take advantage. so I understand why you didn't come tell me. I hope you do the decent thing and report it to the collision center so that way you can rest easy knowing you didn't just run and hide and cause physical damage to another person's vehicle on which they depend on to be able to work and provide.
On Tuesday November 22, I had the opportunity of witness the quick actions of an off duty firefighter who put their training to work to help a complete stranger. I was waiting for my Dr.'s appointment at Dr. Mustafa's office when their was some commotion coming from the spill over waiting area. As the story unfolded, we soon learned that there was a gentlemen that went into the bathroom and while in there, had a medical emergency. Their family member knew something was wrong and reached out to the receptionist for help. Receptionist soon discovered that the situation was not good - bathroom door was locked, no key for the door could be found and the gentlemen inside was not responding. Soon, the off duty firefighter who was there with his parents jumped into action, introduced himself to the employees of the office includng showing his ID and told them he was going to kick the door in to gain access. Two swift boots to the door and access was gained. This gentleman didn't stop there though, he quickly went to the side of the gentlemen that was in medical distress and directed office staff to call 911. He stayed by the man's side, accessing him constantly until EMS arrived. He had complete control of the situation from start to finish.
It was evident that the family member of this man in distress was anxious and worried but the quick actions of the selfless individual quickly eased her concerns. Many of the patients inside the office thanked the gentlemen for his quick actions and the office staff were beyond grateful for his help, with one saying that he was an "angel in disguise."
The off duty firefighter shrugged off the accolades but I wanted to write this to let him know that he was "spotted" and wanted to give him a formal "thank you." Not only for the care he gave that gentlemen that day but for the care they put into their community each day as a firefighter.
We are forever grateful for the service of our First Responders and this is just another example as to why. God Bless!h
This evening while having dinner at Roma Pizzeria, there was an older gentleman by the name of J.P Durocher(84) with his daughter waiting for his brother's to arrive. Apparently this former windsor firefighter meets with his brothers/ friends every week for pizza here. The waitress Jen, has been serving them for the past 2 years. She asked them last week if they have a picture of them altogether and since they didn't, she took the liberty of taking one. Jen then gets a copy made and framed for each of them. This really touched my heart and I know JP"s too. I would definitely go back to this restaurant not only for their delicious food but to meet people like Jen.
It was such a pleasure running into Antoni Tambunan and his family on the weekend passing out flyers. I learned that he's running for Tecumseh Town Council Ward 2. Let me tell you about this man, Tecumseh would be lucky to have him. Toni is dedicated, committed and has a real sense of team work. I personally worked with Toni for over two decades and I know first hand that he's a team player. Toni is very well liked by many and one that goes the extra mile. He has time to devote himself to his community and I wish him all the best!
