This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area

HUGS. Big hugs to the lady in front of me at Walmart who bought my diapers and wipes while my baby was upset. You resonate Christmas spirit!

SLUGS. To the mindless vandals who yanked and slashed some of the rope lights on the lamp posts on Baker Street. Those lights were provided by donation and volunteers spent hours putting them up. It adds cheers and light to Baker Street during this festive season. If you don’t like them, that’s okay but please don’t spoil it for those who do, especially the children. One day you will have children and hopefully you will remember what you did on Baker Street. Let’s hope that you don’t have to experience the sadness my family did today when we saw                                                                                the vandalism. Shame on you!!! And a Merry Christmas.

 

SLUGS. To the person who took my red gasoline can at Petro Canada, while I was inside paying for it. Thanks... and may that gas give you many more miles of trouble and a worried conscience. Donate $20 to the Sally Ann. That’ll ease it.

 

SLUGS. To the people who do not clean the snow off their vehicles before heading out. If you aren’t willing to clean ALL the snow off your vehicle, you shouldn’t drive it. You are a hazard to yourself and those around you.

 

Hugs. To the fabulous snow plow driver who dumped a huge load of snow on my yard instead of my driveway! My back thanks you VERY much!

– Pain free on Pine Street

 

Hugs. To the person who found my red bag hanging on the chair at Oso Negro on December 11 and turned it in. Thank you and have a very Merry Christmas.

 

Hugs. To Deb at L’Optique for amazing customer service! You fixed my husband’s crunched glasses and saved the day! We’ve dealt with you for years and you are always fantastic — we so appreciate you!!!
