This week’s Hugs & Slugs offerings from the Nelson area

HUGS. To a worthy debate adversary who won’t back down.

SLUGS. Most littering is merely unsightly, however, broken glass and rib and chicken bones can end the life of a canine. I’m reasonably sure that the folks who break bottles and discard those bones are not aware that a bone lodged in the gullet of a dog starts as a $2,000 vet bill. Most of us can’t afford this. Broken glass needs less explanation. So please think beyond the convenience of simply littering and consider our dogs. Thanks in advance.

HUGS. To our local firemen that were in front of the theatre on Sunday with the 100-year-old fire truck as Roxanne was going to be shown at 2 o’clock as we were going to our friend’s 90th birthday at the senior centre next door to the theatre. We told them we were going and we said they could always come in a sing Happy Birthday to her. Not long after the party started, in they all walked and said they came to check things out as they’d heard we would be having 90 candles on the cake for someone. They asked where the 90-year-old birthday girl was and got us to sing along with them. Everyone got a good laugh and we really enjoyed it. It was great.

 

HUGS. To a worthy debate adversary who won’t back down. Exploring each other’s truth is a key component to any debate and that is made much more enjoyable with good company. As always, truth rests somewhere in the middle and even though we may never individually get there, it’s always fun trying to edge each other a little closer. You will always be my number-one draft pick when the ultimate game of survival eventually comes.

 

HUGS. To the woman in the silver car I pulled out in front of on Friday afternoon on Front Street. Please accept my sincere apology, it was a complete lack of judgement on my behalf and my following reaction to you being upset was completely out of character for me and I am ashamed of my behaviour. You were completely in the right and I absolutely deserved the ensuing reaction from you. Apologies from a tired driver in a blue truck.

 

HUGS. The young designers at Nelson Stitch LAB send hugs of gratitude to those in our community who have supported their passion for creation with donations of fabric!

 

HUGS. To the incredible staff at L.V. Rogers. Thank you all for taking such great care with all our young people this past school year. Special hugs to Stew, Mush, Gibb, Ms. Sheppard, Rosie and Laurieanne… we will never be able to repay you for your kindness and dedication to our child.

 

Hugs. To Michele Secord for donating her time once again to prepare the year-end financials for the Kootenay Lake Hospital Auxiliary.

 

HUGS. To Mr. Todd, our amazing band teacher for giving us an amazing two years of learning music. He is now moving to Whitehorse, so have a good trip and an awesome summer!

HUGS. Huge hugs to the gentleman who turned in my much needed cell phone to the police that I lost on Nelson Avenue. You are a life saver and how wonderful to know there are still people like you! I only wished you had left your number so I could tell you in person how much this was appreciated. Thank you again.
