Thumbs up

to Emma of Men­dooran who co­or­di­nated Hal­loween Trick or Treat this year, by pro­vid­ing a town map of those house­holds that wished to par­tic­i­pate. This was a huge suc­cess and al­lowed lots of lit­tle ones the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy this com­mu­nity event, ac­com­pa­nied by fun-lov­ing adults. Well done Emma and those who helped her.

Thumbs up

to the lovely fam­ily – a mum, and small son and two daugh­ters – who I met in Aldi. I’m el­derly and use a walker. One of the young girls helped put my shop­ping on the con­veyor belt. I thanked her and told her she was so kind. When I went out, there was the lit­tle boy wait­ing for me with yel­low roses. I don’t know them ex­cept that they go to St Marys. When you’re old you get pushed to the side a lit­tle bit, but to­day I will have a lovely evening be­cause of them.

to the tradies that helped them­selves to the beer in my fridge when work­ing at my home.

Thumbs up

to Ja­son the Red Rooster de­liv­ery driver. Thank you for be­ing so po­lite, cour­te­ous and pa­tient while I was get­ting my money or­gan­ised. You gave ex­cep­tional ser­vice, well done and thank you!

Thumbs down

to the peo­ple who were still bring­ing their kids around and ring­ing door­bells at 10pm on Oc­to­ber 31. My house­hold was asleep and not ev­ery­one cel­e­brates Hal­loween.

Thumbs up

to the lady who gave our group a free ticket to see “Bad Moms 2” af­ter one of her party didn’t show up. It was a lovely ges­ture and you have no idea what it meant to our day. It was a treat we could barely af­ford, and you’re proof there are still good peo­ple in the world. Thank you.

Thumbs up

to the group of peo­ple who found my el­derly mum who’d gone out walk­ing and went to con­sid­er­able trou­ble to lo­cate mem­bers of my fam­ily to re­unite us. Thank you for tak­ing the time to care. It’s deeply ap­pre­ci­ated. THE Dubbo Gar­den Club came out to Kin­tyre coun­try liv­ing to have a look at Gary Hig­gins gar­den on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 1. Guests en­joyed morn­ing tea and a tour around the vil­lage.
