Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
Today in Amherstburg, an hour ago I got stuck in the deep snow behind my girlfriends house, I drive a big 4x4 but I went through a ditch and the snow caught the bottom of my truck. After almost an hour of shoveling and gunning it and using her truck to pull me, I couldn't get out. Finally a service truck who has to plow the nearby service building pushed the snow out from in front of me and pulled me out with chains.
He saved my life, I am so grateful, I tried to pay him but he told me to pay it forward. Thank you service man!
Lost: Snowplows in the general Amherstburg area this morning!!

To the young boy (I think his name is Jake) who works at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Amherstburg - you are always so pleasant and helpful. I think there should be more of you. I always see you working so hard - always with a smile on your face. I hope your employer appreciates you - good workers are hard to find.

to the Guy who chased me down this morning to warn me about my phone. I was paying for my gas today at the 7/ 11 on Tecumseh. Walked back to my van and my hands were full. I had placed my phone on the top of my van so I could get my keys and unlock it. I jumped in and drove off. I was all the way to Howard and this car pulls up next to me and signals to lower my window. I lower it and he says to me "Your phone is on top of your van, I have been following you to tell you. I haven't seen it fall off so I think it is still there." I was stopped at a light so I jumped out for a minute and looked and there it was, my brand new Samsung. I looked at him and thanked him and he said no problem. He pulled into the first parking lot and turned around heading back the opposite way on Tecumseh. Thank you kind sir for going our of your way to tell me that and save me the cost of replacing my phone. And so thankful that it was secured by the rack on top of my van, that has saved me so many times before with my purse.
A lady who should walk around with less things in her hands ;)
While shopping in Walmart, my daughter dropped the hot chocolate that we brought with us to drink on our shop. The cashier very quickly called for assistance and reassured my daughter who was near tears. Then, a female customer with a friendly smile stepped out of the cashier's line two tills over and slipped two loonies into her hand and told her to get herself another one. Such a kind gesture. We will be paying it forward and dropping off items to the local foodbank as a sign of thanks.
Spotted in Windsor these birds on bikes...
Racing mode..Must be as aerodynamic as possible for racing as seen here.
Hope you like them as much as I did spotting them.
