This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area
HUGS. To the kind gentleman who assisted the senior lady when she fell near Lakeside Park. Yes there are still true gentleman in this world.
- A grateful senior
Hugs. To Melissa in the Safeway deli for saving the sandwich tray day!
SLUGS. To the loser that pulled down two hanging baskets on the 300 block of Baker Street and left them scattered on the sidewalk. You must be very proud!
HUGS. To people who don’t press down on the door knob when putting on or taking off their shoes. In my home there are multiple other balancing options.
- Tired of replacing locking door handles
Hugs. To everyone who participated in Relay for Life. The weather kinda sucked, but the event was fantastic!
SLUGS. A big slug to the local road crews! Get your act together and fix the road leading up to Rosemont. The holes are really starting to piss us drivers off and the attempts at fixing with gravel are not solving the issue!
Hugs. To the Kootenay Kannibelles and the Nelson Grizzlies on their wins this weekend. Good luck to the Grizzlies in Cranbrook and to the Kannibelles at the nationals.
HUGS. Huge hugs and bouquets of flowers to the alert lady in the mall parking lot who heard my ring ping from my finger and ran after me to return it. We are forever grateful. - Paying closer attention
Hugs. To those soccer parents who have put up with wind, rain and cold this soccer season and yet always make watching from the sidelines fun!
Hugs. To all the people who have donated pennies (and loads of other coins) to break the Guinness World Record for a penny pyramid to raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital. Pennies in a jar... and before you know it... the jar is full... What a great cause, what a great community spirit.
HUGS. To all the wonderful people, who supported my exchange year in Nelson and especially to that one person I fell in love with, who made my life so much better! Thanks everyone for a year I will never forget!
SLUGS. To the licensed drivers over 25 who don’t really teach the “L” drivers to use their signal lights! Really? How are they supposed to learn?
HUGS. To all the teachers in Nelson schools who did such a wonderful job this year. Enjoy the break.
HUGS. To wise the local political veteran. Thanks for your understanding and your continuing efforts to fight the good fight.
SLUGS. To idealists who think the economy can run without a true entrepreneurial spirit and hard work.
