Gee, I wish I could claim credit for that one but it wasn't me.
I knew it wasn't you. He was too young and too fit.  ;)

When we get snow; when we get ice; when we get torrential rain; when I think of the poor and shortsighted (downright stupid) prescription drugs policies here; when I think of the bent politicians; when I think of the outdated practices etc etc...

I just remind myself about the people here :)

Why not pick it up during rush hour traffic? You wouldn't even have to start or stop the truck, just crawl along with the rest of the traffic.
Rush hour traffic? Where does that happen?  ;)

So the new garbage collection starts this week, apparently with more daytime collections.

The new instruction for our area is to put our garbage out from 7.00 on a Wednesday evening. This differs from previous instructions to put it out on a Wednesday evening, not before 7.00.

Yes, that's right.  :)

There's kind of an implication that garbage might be collected on a Wednesday evening rather than the early hours of Thursday. I suspect however that, for us, there is actually no change and they just worded it a bit differently.

We're off Killiam Dive and they in fact came in the daytime. Strange to see!

This morning I was heading towards Rinzlers with my wife in her wheelchair.

We cross over to Lawtons and for that short stretch of thirty yards or so we use the road as the sidewalk surface - like so many  :( - is very uneven.

We had to wait for a break in traffic to move around a sunken drain.

While waiting, a guy on a bicycle stops and asks if we need help getting up the kerb and onto the sidewalk. No thanks, we're okay, says I.

This happened to us down on Main Street once. I'm sure I posted about it but I can't find it.

Anyway, thanks to the cyclist. Another example of the kindness of strangers.

Anyone have any others?

This is encouraging! :)

The city needs to focus on repairing our side walks - all of them - which should include widening them much more.
