Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Leamington
Thank you to the opp officer that gave all the kids at my sons bus stop free Froster today!
The Southpoint Peewee AE team is working with the SECC to gather winter outerwear for the local community in the Coars for Kids drive and as part of their good deed for the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup! Stop by the arena on Saturday Nov 2 between 9 and 12 to drop off any gently used coats to the kids!!
To the officer that attended my daughter's fender bender today, had a big heart! My daughter's phone was almost dead, the officer let her use their phone to keep in contact with us. She planned on driving it home but with the damage and strong winds, and less than 7% battery on her phone, the officer insisted the vehicle be towed so she can get home safely to her loved ones. Twin Oaks Towing was quick and a little bonus, the tow truck driver had a charger for her phone, lol. He dropped her vehicle off at the Dr, and then gave her a ride home!! Crappy to have the mini accident, awesome service from great people from Windsor to home! And not to mention, the guy she hit was very understanding as they waited for the police they almost seen 3 more fender benders in the same spot.
Today October 8th I had my black jeep parked on mill street in between Victoria south and wigle. When I came out I noticed visible damage to the driver side rear panel, the paint from the other vehicle was white and still on my jeep. If anyone saw anything please report it to police because I will be searching every day till I find a white vehicle with rear end damage and potential black paint

During my grandpa's final hours (Bill Abbott) on Saturday Sept 28 I wanted to give a shout out to the emergency team at Erie Shores Health Care Leamington for their caring and compassionate service. They deserve the recognition, thank you. A bigger shout out to the nurse who took care of him during the day, I believe her shift started at 7 am. I didn't quite get her name. But I do know that the compassion and care that she gave needs to be recognized, not only for him but for us. She offered us warm blankets etc not only checked in on him but us as well to see if we needed anything. Whenever I thought he needed something because he was uncomfortable she was there right away to assist. She made the circumstances more comfortable for us. A sincere thank you to her, a profession like that isn't easy, you did an amazing job.
Spotted on Seacliffe drive near Kingsville are all the drivers who refused to pullover for a volunteer firefighter today, September 10th at 2:25pm, while clearly on their way to an emergency. Please pull over for flashing green lights!
Today I was in Dr. F's waiting room on the 3rd floor. I was really nervous that I would need to have a procedure done today. I started to get a little teary eyed thinking about it and this wonderful lady told me that it would be okay. She even came over and consoled me after the tears would not stop. I just want to say thank you for your kindness and assuring me that I would be just fine. It was just like my Grandma who has passed on was there with me. I'm sorry I didn't catch your name but if you read this you'll never know how special that was for me to feel like I had a grandmother's love after not being able to hug my own for 10 years. You are a such a wonderful person thanks for being my honorary Grandma for the day you helped me more than you'll ever know!
