This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from the Nelson area

HUGS. Fat, slimy slugs to the man and the woman in the car at downtown Baker Street. I did not appreciate it at all when you fingered the poor young girl trying to cross the street whilst you run a red light. May karma bite you in your unfeeling butt.

 

SLUGS. To the owner who keeps letting their cat outside so that it can be used as target practice (bb/pellet gun) by someone in the area Tower Road in Rosemont. Duh!

 

HUGS. Great big hugs to the city workers building our new park across from Lakeview Village. It’s going to be beautiful come spring and will be used a lot. Also special hugs to Gladys Dick for getting the ball rolling. - Grateful bunch at Lakeview Village

 

HUGS. To the Eagle Ladies for cooking and serving the delicious borscht, pie and ice cream for lunch. Looking forward for more next year. The community will enjoy the donations.

 

Hugs. To the Uphill resident who tipped his new paper boy. It really went a long way to boosting his confidence and motivation on this, his first job - Happy Mom

 

Hugs. To the principal and six students from the Nelson Christian School who came and raked the leaves in the yard at the lavender house. You did a great job and helped me a lot. Thank you for your kindness.

 

SLUGS. To dog owners with larger dogs that are aggressive and bully other dogs. They offer no control of their pet as they attack other dogs and they threaten anyone who interferes. They stand and watch as though it were a spectator sport while the owners of the dog being attacked try to break it up. If these owners are not able to control their dogs they should leash them.

 

HUGS. A touchless hug to she who is leaving the community. Even in my vastness, I still have to say you are top of the pile. Good luck and remember us little people when you are rich and famous.

 

Hugs. To certain people in Nelson for changing our lives. In the end we will be better for it while all of you will be left with nothing better to do than stick knives in each others backs. At least we don’t have to pretend we would ever want to be friends with people like you. Oh and we have a feeling that Karma has a way of paying it forward.

 

Hugs. To Brian from Nelson Search & Rescue and his friend for picking up my camera from the road, figuring out who owned it, and then tracking us down to return it!  We are very grateful, thank you!
