BEEF: PLEASE STOP BURNING! Our lungs have enough to worry about right now! COVID-19 is a respiratory disease. Breathing is already difficult for some people. Just want a breath of fresh air! We’re all in this together.
BEEF: To all those drifters who insist on installing after-market mufflers just to made lots of noise.
BOUQUET: To the line monitor in Costco produce dept. Great smile and fantastic attitude. Keep it up. Thanks. I like this new column.
BOUQUET: A shout out to Windsor Plywood West Shore for being available and making trips to the hospital to deliver doors for the space they are revamping for new beds!
BEEF: To all the people who keep parking in my driveway. It’s not public parking. You want to visit the townhouses beside me or deliver something next door, then park in their driveway, not mine!
BEEF: A complaint to trail users who are not considerate of others.
. Stop leaving tissue paper and litter on the trails
. Stop leaving dog waste bags on the trails
. Walk single file when others are approaching to maintain social distance
With so many people taking to the outdoors in these difficult times, everyone needs to do their part to keep our lovely community trails clean and safe for all.
BOUQUET: I want to extend an enormous thank you to people who are working in stores such as grocery stores so that people like me can still shop for the things we need. I think many employees must be tired and discouraged by the way some people are shopping and at how ravaged the store shelves look. Thank you for taking the risk of coming to work knowing not all people are being conscientious about isolating themselves. Please know that many of us appreciate your work and many of us are still just shopping to stock up on what we need in the short term.
BOUQUET: To the sprightly young woman who now delivers our Goldstream News. Good on you!
BOUQUET: To the lovely lady who paid for my Triple-Triple at Tim Hortons when I couldn’t find my card. It had been a bad/sad week for me and her kindness made all the difference. Many thanks. I will pay it forward.
BOUQUET: A big Thank You to the staff and owners at the Market on Millstream. These are very challenging times and the staff and owners made my grocery shopping experience as comfortable as possible during these unprecedented times.
