Hugs make a comeback from last week

Hugs are back on top ater a large increase of slugs in the past weeks.

HUGS: To the very nice couple that helped me up after my bike spill at Lakeside Park. I’m doing fine. A few bumps and bruises but I’ll live. May good karma be with you both.

SLUGS: To the vast number of Nelson and area drivers who think the louder their vehicles emit sound, the better. Loud and proud, I think not. More like disrespectful and even infantile perhaps. There are better and helpful ways to get attention guys and gals.

SLUGS: Slugs to the real estate agents that bring their dogs to house viewings. These are not protecting dogs, they’re not status symbols (its Nelson) these are little yappers that run around the houses getting in the way of us viewing the houses. Tripped three times.  Not professional in any way.

HUGS: Hugs to our Nelson family for all the pre-made meals and support!

SLUGS: Creepy slugs go out to our creepy peeping, nosy neighbor who thinks we don’t see her peeking out her window at us.  You seem to duck and shut the drapes quickly but not quick enough.  If we wanted our business to be yours we would invite you over for tea a long time ago.  We were warned of you and now have come to realize what the neighborhood warned us about. You surely need a friend but your not going to find one here. — Signed your creeped out neighbors

HUGS: Hugs to all the sluggers. I hope you feel better soon. And KISSES to all the huggers. Thanks for sharing your positivity.

HUGS: Hugs to those who rationalize their noise pollution by saying that a few others make noise, too. Why a hug? Because I reckon you need one.

SLUGS: Slugs to the people who complain about other people complaining in Hugs and Slugs. You do know that you aren’t obliged to read the Slugs, right? I’d sooner see people airing their complaints here than starting fights with their neighbours.

HUGS: Hugs to my amazing neighbour.  He is a true hero after kicking a cougar twice to stop its attack on my dog.  Hola and I can never thank you enough for your bravery.  We are blessed to have you in our neighbourhood.

HUGS: Hugs to all those individuals that let the world go round, SLUGS to the endless complainers, maybe your tune will change when the griz is in your backyard!

HUGS: Huge big fat hugs to all the amazing, super hardworking and dedicated volunteers who came out to help make the 13th annual Garden Festival one of the most successful ever.

SLUGS: Slugs to all the people not wearing helmets when riding their bikes. Helmets are cool!

If you have a Hug or a Slug… we’d like to hear it. Simply email us at with your short quips, compliments or complaints. Keep it tasteful and anonymous — no names of individuals or businesses, please. You can also drop by a written submission to our offices at 514 Hall Street.
