Nelson Star

This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area

SLUGS. To the person responsible for choosing the bantam house hockey teams and claiming they are even. You ruined the enjoyment of this hockey season for twelve young individuals.


HUGS. And spring flowers to the jam fairy who keeps stocking the Nelson Food Cupboard with homemade jams and jellies.


Hugs. To the teller at the Royal Bank who helped me with a bank draft Friday afternoon. You were hospitable and friendly and it made my afternoon to know their are still people out there who care about others. There should be more of that in such a small community. Hope your husband and son are feeling much better!


Hugs. To the proprietors of the Pony Espresso in Crescent Valley for their help in getting my van unstuck last Saturday. They climbed in the snow with big smiles on their faces and no second thoughts just to help me out. It brightened my day and made me happy to know that there are people who want to help out. Many thanks.


Slugs. To the people who can’t complete a sentence without changing the subject.


Slugs. To the people who put reward posters on the bulletin boards for the safe return of their pets. You know what? Coyotes can’t read.

Hugs. To the woman who smiled at me in passing. You had no idea who I was and I did not know you, but your smile immeasurably brightened up my day and it was very much appreciated. Thank you for being friendly to a stranger!
