Roses and Tomatoes (April 24, 2014)

Rotten tomatoes to the person who stole the plants from outside Sum Place and kicked in some of the fencing for the Surrey Urban Mission community garden. How dare you take from a place that gives so much? Sum Place welcomes anyone to share meals and has truly become a wonderful place for many in our community to call home.

Many bouquets of roses to the Burnsview Secondary school’s drama department for putting on a beautiful production of ‘Legally Blonde.’ It was an excellent musical. Congratulations!

A boulevard of pink roses to the City of Surrey for continuing to beautify the city by planting what looks like a million daffodils all over town, especially along 64th Avenue. Keep up the excellent work.

Roses to the artist who made the beautiful mosaic in the concrete at the entrance to the Semiahmoo Mall. Looks wonderful!

A huge bouquet of roses to the management and staff at Surrey Gardens Apartments. They do such an awesome job for the tenants in our buildings. When we need repairs or have questions, they are always ready to help. Thanks for all your promptness.

An ambulance full of rotten tomatoes to the woman who decided I was taking too long to cross at the crosswalk at the intersection of 137th and 72 Avenue on April 7. Even though there was still plenty of time on the signal, you made a left turn. Your vehicle was so close to me that not only did your vehicle scrape across my purse but I got a good look at you.

Ten bouquets of roses to the lady who kindly took the time to stop and be witness to an accident in Cloverdale. Please accept my sincere apology for being two years late of my appreciation – better late than never.

Rotten tomatoes to property owners who break city bylaws and laugh at everyone who obeys them. Properties that drag down the neighbourhood drive me crazy. I have seen the bylaw cars drive right by these places like they weren’t even there. The bylaw enforcement is a joke in Surrey.
