This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from the Nelson area
HUGS. To Jason the electrician who helped pull me out of a treewell at Whitewater last Saturday. I’m alive. Thank you.
Hugs. To Jill at Nelson Sewing Solutions for patching my favourite old jeans. Now I can get another year or two out of them.
HUGS. A big thanks to all the people out in Nelson and the surrounding areas for shopping local!
HUGS. Big huge hugs to our local business community for donations to the Ending Violence Association of BC’s Annual Training Forum. Phat Angel, Gaia Rising, Cottonwood Kitchens, Sacred Journey, Kutenai Moon Furniture, Tara Davis and Sonja’s China Cabinet all supplied wonderful tokens of appreciation for the front line anti-violence workers across BC providing support to survivors of sexual assault, relationship violence, child abuse and criminal harassment.
HUGS. The Nelson Lions Club thanks all those people in the community who came out to the Variety Show on at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club. Your interest and attendance made this a wonderful night, enjoyed by all. We would also like to thank the Nelson Home Building Centre for providing their popcorn machine which turned out to be an added delight to the festivities.
HUGS. To the wonderful woman who found my very “full of everything” wallet on Kootenay Street Monday afternoon and turned it in to the police station. As I searched high and low, reporting my loss to several stores, as well as to the police, I always felt confident (I do confess to a couple of lapses of doubt) that my community of Nelson is full of honest, basically good people, who would do as you did! All of our actions affect everyone! With heartfelt appreciation!
SLUGS. To the lowlife who stole my hubcaps. You don’t deserve them so I know they won’t stay on your car for long.
Hugs. To all the volunteers who, sometimes with little to no gratitude, hurry home from work to get to the rink and help ensure our children learn the love of our game.
Slugs. To the people that sit in the stands and criticize (quietly and sometimes not-so-quietly) volunteers who are doing their best. If you think you can do a better job you should try and do so yourself.
Slugs. To the politically correct people who act like fundamentalists and harass good citizens with their fire and brimstone views. Your methods don’t work.
Hugs. To my sisters and my brother. You drive me crazy but I love you anyways. xxoo
Slugs. To dog owners who let their dogs run free at night. We’ve been woken up two nights in a row at 3 a.m. with a barking dog in our yard. Bring them in for the night or secure them so they aren’t roaming the neighbourhood.
