This symbol is one of my favorite book series "THE HUNGER GAMES" as a symbol of a silent salute for those lives that are lost.
I wanted to share this story of my friends amazing little girl Kelly. This was all her idea. She came home from school and told her parents she wanted to do this and they made it happen.
What a special little girl....and what great parents!
Transition to Betterness (T2B)
Kelly Edgington who is only 4 years old and raised $1000 by doing a lemonade stand and family garage sale. Little Kelly decided she wanted to buy new toys for the kids in the T2B Paediatric Oncology Satellite Unit. management at Toys R Us gave Kelly a discount and she was able to purchase more toys for the kids oncology program.
If you go on the Transition to Betterness (T2B) page you can see pictures of her yard sales and lemonade stand, and also some of her shopping at toys r us.
Shout out to the rude parents attending the Firehorse Leadership presentation at Sarah Parks Horsemanship yesterday, Friday July 18th.
Love it when photog parents attend events and stand in front of others, talk, lean into others personal space, and shift around the room in an effort to catch the best picture of their adorable one. Get a grip people. It is a little kiddie presentation, sit down, shut up, and enjoy the efforts that your child AND mine worked hard to practice so they could show off their skills.
Oh, and to the Mommy who brought her clearly overtired toddler, who should have been napping, shout out to you in the form of " thank you!". You daughter had no interest being in a cold barn, bitten up by flies, and no toys, or treats to soothe her. Her yelling and crying was enjoyable. You took the cake though when you left her outside the barn screaming for you while you took a puck of your " cowboy". However when the normally docile German shepherd gave your daughter a loud warning by snapping at her with a deep growl because she was agitating the poor animal, your dumbass response to stay positioned several feet away from her to capture your perfect shot of your other son, was appalling. You are an idiot lady, and since your husband was there too, he obviously is not much better.
A big shout out to the Lee & Maria's Market delivery guy for taking a minute to stop and make a very generous purchase from my daughters' rock sale. Your kindness did not go unnoticed and made the day of two very excited little girls. You've been spotted!
Found dog in Amherstburg. male Labradoodle, fixed and microchipped, but no info registered.
To the Bell Service Provider driving a white van today on Highway 18 near Turkey Creek bend, it is NOT okay to text while driving or read your text, whichever! NOT COOL!
Hey all. Just wanna give props to the staff and entertainment ppl at shooters in A'burg. I went there last evening with my best friend and her family from outta town for a graduation dinner after I was surprised to find out the restaurant on Boblo Island (my original choice) closed at 8 pm... On a THURSDAY??? Not much of a party spot if u ask me, and I'm no stranger to the restaurant business. Speaking of which it would've been nice of the deck hand on the ferry to inform us of that before we paid the fare and went across. Thanks pal. Way to rip ppl off. Anyways, after coming back we decided to go to Shooters and we had an excellent time. The food was great, the trivia was fun and it was all around a good time. But most of all my friend the graduate had a blast. So once again thanks a bunch to the shooters staff and venue coordinator for making it a great experience :-D Cheers
To the thoughtful young man that made a little boy so happy. At the Amherstburg festival today my son wanted a Amherstburg Admirals hockey team hat. I told him he would have to wait because I hadn't had a chance to get to the bank machine yet and we would come back later. This wonderful young gentleman reached into his wallet and paid for a hat for my son! I was so shocked!
He is the Admiral's goalie and will be our favorite player when we go watch them play. Young man your parents raised you well. You are a thoughtful, giving and sweet person. I hope my son grows up to be such a kind and considerate gentleman like you. You`ve been spotted!
