This week's offering of Nelson's Hugs & Slugs
HUGS. To the staff at the Nelson Post Office: Thank you for your consistently cheerful, extraordinary helpful service for all these years. - Grateful customer
Slugs. To the Nelson & District Community Complex for closing and limiting hours of operation during holidays. As a taxpayer, I expect this facility to be open to the public when we have free time, ie: holiday weekends. What’s with the closure on Sunday, April 8? This is not a statutory holiday, Good Friday is but this is when families want to use this facility so keep it open into the evening. Staffing and overtime wages for holiday operation should be in their planning budget.
Slugs. To the nasty woman driving towards Castlegar April 9 who gave me the dirty look when those two big white dogs ran across the highway to me walking my leashed dog. Don’t give me the dirty look they are not my dogs, save it for the irresponsible dog owner who lets these 2 dogs run across a busy highway.
SLUGS. To the people who store their RVs and motorhomes on city streets and their driveways. That scene belongs in a campground and not in our neighbourhoods.
Hugs. To the parents who gave their children bags to pick up garbage that others discarded on common areas in the City of Nelson. And hugs to the obedient children. “Train up a child in the way he should go. Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Prov. 22:6
Slugs. To those who litter.
HUGS. To those who helped our parents when their car broke down on the Bombi Pass. Thank you VERY much to each and everyone one.
Hugs. To this weekend’s sunny, warm weather, the snow in our yard is finally gone and it feels like spring is finally here!
HUGS. A big hug to Gericks for selling me an awesome bike! It rides wonderfully!
SLUGS. To graffiti artists who are far from it. Some of the spray paint that adorns our backalleys is actually pretty impressive, but mindless scribbles only destroy the entire ambience of the downtown. Lousy graffiti is simply vandalism. Stop it now.
HUGS. To tremendous neighbours who have become important family members.
