Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (July 16, 2015)

Roses

  • Last week I was horrified to see our little stone garden statue missing. I took a double look around the garden to see if it was around – it wasn’t. We’ve had it for many years and I wasn’t sure how to tell my wife it was stolen. I decided to wait until I arrived home. To my surprise, it was right back in the spot. So thank you to whoever returned it. Whether you had a guilty conscience or someone found it and knew where it belonged in Clayton Village, thank you.

  • A huge bouquet of roses to all the firefighters risking their lives to try and get the fires under control – not just local ones, but worldwide. Thanks so much for your hard work. It does not go unnoticed. Keep safe!

  • Bunches of red roses to the staff, volunteers and recreation department at Weatherby Dr. Hogg Pavilions for the wonderful Canada Day celebration. The music and ice cream was a big treat and enjoyed by all!

  • Beautiful roses to Bell, Apple Store, and the Guildford Town Centre security guard. I was disoriented in the mall and they helped me get home safely.

Rotten Tomatoes

  • A huge bucket of rotten tomatoes to people causing fires. It takes only one discarded cigarette to cause a lot of damage to people and forests. Think before you toss.

  • Rotten tomatoes to myself for being a selfish husband, not making my beautiful and hard-working wife feel wanted and appreciated. I love you so much!

  • Rotten tomatoes to street parking hogs in East Clayton. You play "parking musical chairs" with your fleet of vehicles – you move cars forward and back to prevent other people from parking there. You are not entitled to the street parking in front of your home, holding spots and double parking. You make living – and parking – here a living hell.

  • Rotten tomatoes to the person who wrote in and complained about strata. Do you realize that if you read – and follow – our bylaws, you would never hear from your strata? Strata is not the problem, it’s the people they deal with on a constant basis who feel the rules don’t apply to them!

Send your roses or rotten tomatoes to edit@thenownewspaper.com and watch for them here and in Thursday’s Now.
