Beefs and Bouquets for Jan. 26

Here are this week’s thank-yous and gripes about happenings in and around our West Shore community:

BIG BEEF: to irresponsible dog owners who do not collect their dog’s poop, and to smokers who leave their butts everywhere. Help keep our communities clean!

BOUQUET: to all the friendly people I passed on my lunch walk on Friday. Everyone said hello along Goldstream Avenue, which is so nice. It made my day.

BOUQUET: to the young man, I did not get your name, who ran after me when I dropped my wallet in the parking lot on Thursday. Thank goodness for wonderful people like you.

BOUQUET: to the great staff at Tim Hortons on Goldstream Avenue, hardworking staff for sure.

BEEF: to the drivers who switch lanes with no room or signal.

BOUQUET: to GFL for always being so helpful with recycle pickup. We have the same great guys and they always have a smile.

BOUQUET: I would like to give a bouquet to Libby the Bouvier I met Friday with her head sticking out of the SUV in the parking lot. What a sweet dog and a very nice dog owner telling me the story of Libby.
