Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
Spotted : A few weeks ago I was walking with my dog on riverside and I noticed an older gentleman who was having trouble collecting papers that went flying around because of the wind. I helped him gather what I could and once we were done I walked over to him. I gave him what I had from what looked like very old letters. I asked him if he noticed anymore missing. I took a closer look and I noticed watery eyes. He said he accidently dropped his book that had all these letters in it, letters that him and his wife wrote each other throughout the years. I told him I would help him. Every letter had a number in the top right corner and he had a total of 195. He was missing page 17 and 77, so we started looking. A few others joined in after about 10 minutes of searching. At one point we almost had 15+ people looking for he last missing page 77. While looking he told me his wife had passed away 5 years ago and every now and then he pulls out these letters that they wrote to each other while he was away from her(before texting and emails). I broke down into tears just listening to him tell me the story. Suddenly we hear a scream from a distance. This middle age man was trying to run as fast as he could to us screaming "I FOUND IT" this old man was so anxious to see the last page to make sure it was the right one. I was so happy to see that page 77 was now in his hands again. I helped him count the papers one more time to make sure they were all there. To all those people who walked by and stopped to help, you are amazing. To that old man, I hope one day I find exactly what you found with your wife. It was so beautiful to sit and talk to him for that little while.
I just thought I would share this story, hoping it makes someone's day!
With the help from presidentialproductionfilms.com and 1DREAM MEDIA we were able to go around our city and ask people to describe mothers in 1 word. Here are the results.
My daughter has been selling lemonade this week and has made 83 dollars! She is so excited! Not to spend the money on candy or toys, but to donate it to her dads go fund me page to help him get to Florida for Lyme disease treatment. He has been battling it for many years now and needs this treatment to survive. Her first customer today gave her 15 dollars for a 25 cent cup of lemonade. To the man who did that, You made her day! She was so excited she was almost in tears!!!! All she wants is for her dad to get better and with you're generous donation she is able to donate even more!!! You've been spotted!!!

Spotted : yesterday my grandma and I were walking into Costco. I grabbed a cart and was going to meet my grandma at the photo centre. As I was walking towards her I noticed a gentlemen hand her something and walk away. As he smiled and turned away he said " the golden rule is what I live by, have a great weekend." I was curious so I asked her what that guy wanted. She said that he noticed when she pulled her hand out of her jacket pocket a $50 and $20 fell out onto the floor. He picked it up walked over to her and gave it to her. He had such a great smile and she thanked him and said thank you for being honest. Thats when he said " the golden rule is what I live by, have a great weekend"
I don't remember seeing something that touched me like this has in a long time. #Childrensee #Childrendo
I lost my wallet, most likely left in a shopping cart at the Walmart in Amherstburg. If anyone has found it, please let me know so I can get my important ID/ cards back. Thank you so much!!!
