This is a flashback to yesterday when I thought I caught a bird but then realized it was just mom teasing me with the feather wand again!😼😾🙀
If only the birds could really come inside because I’m sure not going outside to chase them!😹
At trivia in Windsor last night, a friend asked where I stood on the recent proposal to build a marijuana greenhouse operation in Kingsville. She was disappointed that I'm against the idea. But so are most others here. Last week, hundreds of Kingsvillians protested the plan at town hall. Some didn't want to smell the treakly sweet odor of the plant when downwind of its facility. (The mushroom farm is bad enough.) Others didn't like the migrant workers it would bring. My issue has more to do with the damage it would cause to Kingsville's aesthetic. Preserving town character is important. Kingsville's forefathers and foremothers understood this implicitly. It's important to remember that when Heinz came to town in the early 20th century, asking to build a ketchup and canning factory here, our ancestors passed on the offer. They felt it didn't fit with the character of our town, and they were right. Instead, Heinz went to Leamington, the town over - a much better fit. It's encouraging that Kingsville's come to the same conclusion about industrial marijuana production. Our councilors did the right thing by voting the proposal down. Outsiders, like my friend at trivia, might think we're regressive or small-minded. That's wrong, of course, but typical.
