  • Beautiful roses to many of the neighbours who live in my seniors complex. We started out with a few of us and now we are up to 15-plus neighbours who meet every afternoon from 3 to 5 p.m. just to visit. Couples sit together, singles do the six-foot spread. We talk about everything under the sun, and the same subjects on many of the days. But we all go home happy and energized when we go home for supper. We are all so grateful to this group of people who are enjoying and caring for one another. We will survive!
  • To councillors Annis, Locke, Hundial and Pettigrew, the most deserving of truckloads of roses for trying to get Surrey city council to consider fiscal responsibility and readdress budgeted items due to COVID-19 pandemic. Please keep trying. Maybe others on the council will eventually have things happen to them personally, their loved ones and/or their families and see the implications of their hardened hearts.
  • I realize I may be the zillionth person to complain about this, but rotten tomatoes to the terrible dog owners who don’t pick up after their pets while walking them. During the pandemic, my family has been walking paths around our home in Cloverdale and it’s disgusting to see how much crap is lying around, just waiting to be stepped on. All because people are either too lazy – or just simply don’t care.
  • Roses to my kids – and all the other kids out there – who have struggled through the isolation and anxiety of the pandemic with determination and strength, all the while with a great attitude (well, for the most part anyway lol). Thanks for being amazing kids.
