HUGS AND SLUGS: Triggered by honks

Nelson isn’t big on noise it turns out

SLUGS: To the anti-vaxxer in the convoy who left the fresh graffiti on the observatory bridge yesterday. HUGS to those who had to clean up after them.

HUGS: To the person who has made the effort to carve through the hard-packed ice bank on Hall Mines Road to the path along the creek to Perrier Road.

SLUGS: To the group of selfish people who loudly honked their horns and created chaos in our town. Loud noises can trigger PTSD symptoms and thanks to their misguided calls for freedom, I spent the day in hospital due to the distress caused by their insensitive actions.

SLUGS: To obnoxious rude honking protestors. Go live on your own planet where you can let diseases run rampant.

SLUGS: To those of you who use your opposition to vaccines as an excuse to behave like thugs. You may believe it’s effective to scream, intimidate and bully, but aggression and hostility are never the answer if you want others to listen. Your message is entirely lost due to your lack of basic civility towards those who disagree with you.

SLUGS: To whomever when clearing the access to the crosswalks at Front and Poplar pushed the snow up against the pole with the buttons that pedestrians have to push to cross. Can’t get to the buttons now, arms are too short, don’t want to get clothes dirty.

HUGS: Blessings and buckets of gratitude to all my neighbours who have kept me shovelled out this winter in Uphill. Also, thank you to the young man who tried to pull me out when I was stuck blocking the road. I would be happy to buy you a new tow strap that broke on that tug.

HUGS: To all the East Shore people who contributed to the gift certificates for the ferry crews. Thank you, they are much appreciated.
