Beautiful roses to a stranger who was so kind to me at Peace Arch Hospital when I didn't have enough money for the one hour of parking I needed. Thank you!
Roses to my family, friends and neighbours for making my 65th anniversary a great success, plus the fact that I am still living in the house my late husband and brother built 65 years ago. Many memories were shared. Thanks to all.
A school yard of rotten tomatoes to the beautiful Fleetwood Elementary school for the 26 yellow and black "No Trespassing" signs on the fence. The school used to be a community-friendly place of learning and sharing.
A big bouquet of roses to the kindness of a wonderful young lady, Pardip, a total stranger, who was out viewing the marathon on Sunday. It was 10: 15 a.m., I was lost and trying to get to church by 10: 30. Pardip did something fantastic - she rode with me (I'm a female) and used her cellphone to direct me to a familiar crossing. She then phoned her husband to pick her up. Thank you, Pardip.
Roses to the fellow who stopped his car in the middle of the road in Steveston who brought Kleenex, roses to the owner of the restaurant across the street who brought me a glass of water and roses to the ladies from the craft store who brought me ice for my bleeding hand after my nasty fall on the uneven sidewalk. A rotten tomato to our health system for the three-hour wait at the emergency room in Richmond for the only suture room in the ER to get stitches for my hand.
A freight train full of beautiful red roses to our young neighbour Riley M., who, through his own initiative and countless hours/days of hard work, turned an eyesore behind the North Delta rec centre into a community garden that everyone can enjoy.
Rotten tomatoes to the tenants of my neighbour. It's strange you guys don't realize the disturbance you create at around midnight. Please stop yelling and talking rowdily during your late-night video chatting session.
Rotten tomatoes to the person who threw rotten tomatoes to the person who was offended by motorcyclists wearing turbans. Why should people be exempt from laws because of their religion? You moved to Canada - you follow the rules.
