Hugs. To the 8 p.m. bus driver coming from Balfour. As I was on my late evening walk I spotted the bus go by, I guess you thought I needed a ride so you stopped, but I had to wave you on. But it sure was nice and thoughtful for you to stop.
slugs. To Nelson gas stations who consistently keep local gas prices higher than other areas. I believe that when two or more gas outlets set a price, this is price fixing. Earn the right to have locals shop local.
HUGS. To my daughter for her enthusiasm towards the game of soccer, but more importantly for her strength of character to realize that even when you are handed disappointment you solider on and continue to better yourself. Sports teach many things, but handling adversity is how it betters your life.
HUGS. Huge huge hugs out to the Homelinks actors and their director for an amazing play. The cast was awesome, the story delightful. Brilliant job by all, can’t wait for the next one!
Hugs. To the wonderful childcare providers offering safe, quality childcare in our community. Home-based businesses are abundant in this area; here’s hoping that neighbours can find ways to balance their needs with the needs of families requiring these childcare spaces. Children’s voices are, and should always be, a part of our neighbourhoods.
HUGS. Thank you to the parents who take time out of their day to say thank you to their child’s teacher! You, and your wonderful children, have made my year! - Grateful Teacher
HUGS. To the librarians at our municipal library. Forgotten a title? Forgotten an author? They will help. Inter-library loan is a wonderful service. Thank you for being so helpful.
HUGS. To the young man who ran after me to return my bank card. I’d got distracted and left it in the ATM. You sure saved me a lot of anxiety. Thanks.
Hugs. To Grampa... get well soon. xxoo
SLUGS. To the phantom proofreader. Sign your name so we can thank you personally.
Slugs. To the RDCK for trying to sneak zoning into Nelson South and Blewett in such a backdoor sneaky way. The residents that heard of it did so by accident. It’s not even listed as news on the RDCK website. Who do you think you represent?
HUGS. Big hippy hugs to all the awesome people who gave me rides to and from the hill this winter, hope to see you next year. - Rainbow warrior
HUGS. To the children who wear bike helmets...
SLUGS. To their parents who don’t. You sure aren’t setting a very good example.
Hugs. To the friendly Sidewinders baristas who know my order before I ask!
