Folks in Nelson area in a hugging mood

To the Nelson Brewing Company for crafting such excellent beers!

HUGS. To the Nelson Fire Department for responding so quickly to our house fire and quickly and efficiently getting it under control hence keeping the fire damage to a minimum. Also, thanks for sheltering as many possessions as possible from the water damage as well. We feel very lucky and have lost very little.

 

HUGS. To our family, friends and this fabulous Nelson community where we were overwhelmed with offers of help in our time of vulnerability. We know we are blessed.

 

HUGS. To a good neighbour of our who was alert enough to notice a roof fire and acted very quickly to call the fire department and alert the occupants.

 

HUGS. To the Nelson Brewing Company for crafting such excellent beers! You outdid yourself this time with your Hop-good and Full Nelson. Yum!

HUGS. Big fat hugs to the iPad  fairy — a very honest person who handed in the iPad accidentally left behind in a shopping cart at the Wholesale Club last Tuesday. The owner, my friend, was so tired and preoccupied from putting untold volunteer hours into a community event that she didn’t notice its absence right away.

 

HUGS. To the fellows at Nelson Ready Mix for a job well finished and for going beyond the call of duty. Much appreciated.

– Happy carport owner

 

Hugs. To the realtors and car salespeople who upload their huge inventory lists to the newspaper. I know there are some people who don’t like having to sift through it all to find something substantive, but I for one am happy to continue obsessing over the objects of the American dream!

 

SLUGS. To all the people who shave off their dog’s fur in summer. This is something that is seen all too often in Nelson. A dog’s coat protects them not just from the cold but from extreme heat as well. Without their fur, they are just as susceptible to sunstroke, sunburn and overheating as humans are. Ask a reputable veterinarian (not a groomer) they will tell you this is NOT the right thing to do for your dog. If you love your dog (or cat, some people are shaving them too!) save some money this summer and your pet the trauma of having their fur shaved off and all the consequences that go along with it. Don’t shave your pooch!

 

HUGS. To the Nelson Rhythm Ropers and their coaches for representing Nelson so well at the provincials in Chilliwack and the nationals in St. Catherines, Ontario. You made us proud!

– Proud Grandparents

 

Hugs. To the mom who picked up the group of crazy-dressed-scavenger-hunters on Saturday for saving us city-blocks of breathes and steps! Would you mind checking to see if one of our scattered-scavengers left an iPhone in your van and contacting the paper if we did? Much love for your enthusiasm and gracious ride on Saturday!

 

Hugs. To all the guys who came from all over BC to a beautiful Blue Moon Weekend. The music of a full band was fantastic. We don’t know what we had 30 years ago. First time in 30 years playing together again just like they never were apart. Smooth, great people, great music, great food, great hostess. Good memories. Love you all.                       – Ted and Ev

 

HUGS. Gigantic hugs to the businesses and residents of Nelson. Also to KLH for making our CT scanner possible. The recent scan which was not even five minutes in length prevented me from taking time off work and driving to Trail. Yeahhhh Nelson!
