After 5 weeks of trying to move around with an air cast on, hopefully the end is in site. Already missed 3 weeks of golf and the season is short enough. On Monday May 6th don’t care what the doctor says, I am taking out the clubs. If you are an active person and then get laid up like this, believe me when I say, it’s been 5 weeks of hell.
After 62 years of always landing on my feet after a slip, trip or fall, I finally missed. Instead of landing on my feet I sat on my right ankle after slipping on some ice. And you guessed it, I fractured my fibula. Now, six weeks in this stupid cast. For some people this would be great, sitting around and doing nothing, but for me after two days, I’m going NUTS.
After living in the Town of Whitby since 1996, I have finally come to the conclusion that many Whitby drivers must have paid someone in the Ministry of Transportation. They could not have passed their driver’s test on their own, because they could not have read the driver’s handbook or they do not know how to read. For those Whitby drivers that do not know, the big RED octagon ( 8 sided ) sign with the big white letters S.T.O.P. is a stop sign.
The meaning of STOP is
As a verb (of an event, action, or process): Come to an end; cease
As a noun: a cessation of movement or operation
verb. cease – stay -halt -discontinue – pause
noun. halt – stoppage – cessation – pause – stay
I hope this helps the drivers that go through the four way stop at Valleywood Dr. and Timber Mill Ave in Whitby. Going through the intersection at 10 kph, 20 kph (kph = kilometers per hour) or not even slowing down is not STOPPING. If the Town of Whitby needs extra cash place a police office at this intersection and they should be able to ticket 5 to 6 vehicles an hour. This should more than pay for the officer and still put money in their pockets.
Stopping at intersection is not the only bad habit some Whitby drivers have. Here is another rule you seem to ignore. People walking on the sidewalk when you are entering or leaving a shopping mall have the the rite of way. You STOP. This is especially pointed at that idiot lady that clipped me and my dog leaving the mall on the south-west corner of Brock St. N. and Taunt0n Rd. E.
In the words of the immortal Red Foreman, Dumb Ass!!
I find it really funny that the Vancouver Police Department is front and center in their support for bill C30. Here is a police department that couldn’t recognize a serious crime if it slapped them in the face. I am talking about the Picton case. Now they want unrestricted access to our private internet communications. There are a few other police departments in this country that I wouldn’t trust, Toronto comes to mind. Talk about a police department that knows how to abuse their power and the people that they are to service and protect. During the G20 summit they carried out the largest mass arrest in Canadian history and then in my opinion a cover-up of their abuses.
We should not let them take away our freedoms, because once they are gone it is much harder to get them back. Write your elected official and tell them you are against this bill. I don’t know if they will do anything, because we seem to elect a lot of whimpy yes people that do as the party boss says and I am not sure if they can be trusted either. But thats another story.
There were a few things my father instilled in me when I was growing up and one of them was you never pick on anyone physically weaker than yourself. Who in their right mind would deliberately shoot a 14 year old girl with the intent to kill her? Children are the future of this world. I do not know what religion the Taliban follow because I do not know of any religion that condones that type of behaviour.
I would not call the people that committed this terrible crime men, but I will call them cowards.
But, like I always say
You can’t fix stupid!
I hope you all have a wonderful time with your families. If you are traveling, drive safely and with care. There are a lot of fools out there.
