hugs. To the generous man who gave me $20 at work — $2 for myself and the other $18 to spend on other people. Coffee and hot chocolate went a long way to brighten some of those peoples’ day. One man said you were an angel sent to spread cheer. Made my day too. Thank you.

 

Slugs. To the teacher who yelled at me for not picking up my dog’s feces. If you are going to berate a stranger on responsible dog ownership, you should make darn sure that you saw the dog defecating and NOT URINATING! I understand your frustration at dog owners not cleaning up after their dogs. As a RESPONSIBLE dog owner I’m very disappointed by it as well. May I suggest that you be certain about your facts before you take it upon yourself to critique another’s actions.

 

Hugs. To you for giving hugs to those certain people in Nelson. I met them too, they changed my life too. I feel real lucky to know what real friends are and I would be yours anytime.

 

HUGS. To the kind honest gentleman for returning my purse to me as well as a big thank you to the couple who offered kind support in loaning the gentleman a phone to call me to say they found the purse. I am so happy all turned out well! Thank you so much!

 

HUGS. To my wife for putting up with the Farkle Farm crew. Having the kids get to know these whacky people better is a true gift and one that will last them a lifetime. You’re a super sweet gal.

 

Hugs. To the Salmo gas war ~ $1.19/l is making my commute to work a little nicer these last few weeks!

 

HUGS. Huge hugs to the owner of the Vibe store.  She defines the meaning of true customer service, thank you for the discount you gave me, you didn’t have to but you did. People on a fixed income appreciate any break they can get and our daughter will be very pleased with what is under the tree.

 

Hugs. To Suanne and Chris for driving us all the way from Vancouver to Nelson when Cancelgar struck again. You guys are one of the reasons we love where we live.

 

HUGS. To the crew at Mallard’s for going the extra mile with my son’s skates. Appreciate it.
