If any of you have visited, or driven by Wisteria, at 62 Bridge Street, you most certainly have seen or met Gail-Sheen-MacDonald. Whether she is inside the store, or out on the street having a cigarette, waving at the occasional passerby, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Not only does she have that enviable winning personality, she is ageless. According to an online quiz on her Facebook page she was a Queen in her past life, and they quote her age at approximately 25. She has also been labeled exotic, but she thinks Wisteria’s owner, Janice Martin, is much more intriguing, than she is exotic.
Even though Gail is always dressed in the latest styles, sporting the finest in accessories, she refuses to wear Winter boots. Apparently, that flawless appearance you see could be somewhat of a mirage. It has been said that she has constant Winter colds and is probably hiding a box of family-sized Kleenex somewhere under those designer duds. She doesn’t care for 50 Shades of Grey, (what?) but enjoys the occasional ‘Ladies Night’ at the Thirsty Moose.
Gail Sheen-MacDonald, and her husband Ted, recently wrote a letter to the local Canadian Gazette about a Sunday they spent walking around Carleton Place. They mentioned in great detail the many great places we have in town. It was a good reminder for all of us, that we do take things in our town for granted all too often.
Like me she hates her pictures taken, but Gail you look spectacular. She is the best friend you always wanted to have.
