HUGS. To the kind soul who found my purple eel skin wallet in the vicinity of Leo’s and turned it in to the Nelson City Police. Thank you very much for being such a GOOD person.

 

Slugs. To the RDCK for bringing in dog bylaws in Procter/Harrop. What good are bylaws when the officer will not come out and see for herself that the dogs are still barking non stop, still running loose (but in the dark now) and still killing wildlife. Why do we have to document and take our neighbours to court to enforce the bylaw? All you had to do was come out and sit on any given day or evening for the last year to see it and hear it yourself. We are paying for nothing! Irresponsible dog owners — you win!

 

HUGS. To the transit city, regional and greyhound drivers. You’re patient, courteous and helpful.

- Happy Rider

 

SLUGS. To nervous/scared drivers who crawl along in the middle of the highway. It’s winter and driving conditions change quickly. Stay home or take the bus.

 

Hugs. To Dr. Osepchook and his team. Your generosity towards the ones who need it the most is a wonderful example of how a community works together. Thank you for your solidarity and your kindness. We will always be grateful.

 

HUGS. Huge hugs to the car dealership who honored our coupon even though we had the wrong dealership. It was a honest mistake. Your service department rocks. Thank you.

 

SLUGS. To the dad at the pantomime on Saturday night who let his cute little boy run up and down the aisle while the show was going on. Your kid is adorable, but we came to see the show on the stage. Perhaps next year you can audition and the two of you can be up there under the lights instead of a distraction in the audience.

 

Slugs. To folks who think the curbside parking spot in front of their home belongs exclusively to them. Leaving a nasty notes on my windshield and your parking your car an inch from my bumper isn’t very neighbourly. Perhaps you should move somewhere with a driveway?

 

HUGS. To those who give extra during the holidays.

 

Hugs. To the West Kootenay MS Society for all their hard work and thanks for the great Christmas event.

 

HUGS. To friends that are always there for you no matter how grumpy you may get at times.

 

HUGS. To the bantam house parents for all your hard work preparing for this weekend’s tournament.
