Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
Went fishing yesterday at coopers marina boat ramp fee was 10$ like normal. As of this morning the store got shut down because of the government Restrictions due to COVID19. And now they have a lady standing outside collecting 20$ a boat. Price gouging! How can they even do this? How can the ramp stay open?
Is the FORD Government coming after people like this?
During the holidays I found this envelop full of pictures in front of lakeshore cinemas.

I want to give a shout out to the gentleman in the Chrysler Journey Wednesday at Hotel Dieu parking lot that gave me his parking ticket as I was about to pay for one, thank so much and know that I passed it along to another person pulling into the parking lot
Found prescription eyeglasses at Toddy Jones Park in Amherstburg. Want to give them back to the right person so if you're missing them please post below with a brief description of them and I'll let you know where you can pick them up!
Shame on the man in the white truck at the Amherstburg Ribfest who went out of his way to berate me because I did not look like I had a disability as I pulled into a handicap spot at the Libro Centre. He commented twice, quite sarcastically, that he could help me get my wheelchair out of our car as he shook his head in disgust. Just because I'm not a senior citizen does not mean that I don't have a need for a handicap permit. I do my best to still enjoy life despite 17 years of chronic and increasing pain. Your ignorance, disapproval, cockiness, and chastisement was uncalled for and based solely on the fact that we were both under 50 and healthy looking as we sat in our car. Shame on you. You've been spotted.

So this has been bothing me since Tuesday and I need to share.
My son who is 8 years old went to Lacasse Park in Tecumseh with his Respite Worker. It was their first day together after a few months of me trying to find one for him with no luck, but that's not the problem.
While they were out I received a phone call from a private name, private number, it was a police officer asking if I knew that my son was with this man This man who by the way has a police clearance in order to become a respite worker, this man who I had interviewed a week prior.
All because 3 woman noticed that my son didn't look like the man he was with, so their conclusion of the situation was that the man isn't his father, so he must be kidnapped because he's calling the man by his first name.
1st thank you for being that concerned, but 2nd please people be aware that not all children with Respite Workers are in wheel chairs, or have Autisim, or Down Syndrom, some kids have mental health issues, and hidden behaviour issues and need a Respite Worker. 3rd that man my child was with could have been an uncle, family friend, neighbor or a boyfriend of mine, because my son's father isn't around and hasn't been for 5 years.
Please when being observant, you keep all factors in mind before calling 911 and reporting things.
I just want to wish the 71 year old Windsor star delivery driver a speedy recovery. He slipped on ice while delivering the paper in Amherstburg on February 13th, 2018. He broke his hip, but that didn't stop him from continuing his route by throwing the papers on the driveway instead of delivering to the porch before heading to the ER to be checked. This shows incredible dedication to his job and those who look forward to their paper. Sir, you have been spotted and we wish you a speedy recovery.
