Hugs beat slugs 8-4 this week

SLUGS: To the individual(s) who decided to harvest the rest of my garden before I could.

SLUGS: To the individual(s) who decided to harvest the rest of my garden before I could. I was waiting for those squash to get bigger. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labour!

HUGS: To the greatest family who is always here to help any way they can. No matter how, whether it’s taking our time share dog, cheering us up or helping with general labour! You guys are great!

SLUGS: To those anonymous letter writers who know they aren’t telling the whole truth. Better be prepared to own what you wrote. You aren’t as anonymous as you think.

HUGS: To the Haunted Trolly Tour. I had a frightfully good time. I hope you will bring it back again next year with more than two showings!

SLUGS: To the evil real estate agent who harassed a responsible, hard working single new mother in hopes to have her evicted so you could make a sale. You know who you are. You’re a disgrace to the business. Karma will get you. – Not impressed

HUGS: To the guys at a local mechanic for getting my car in so quickly and fixing the problem. Thanks again.

HUGS: A big thank you to three men who stepped up and helped two women in distress on Baker Street the other day. One of the women who is assisted by a wheelchair had difficulty getting into her car. The three men who were passing by stopped to assist. Their help and friendliness was greatly appreciated!  Hugs to the three of you! Gallantry is alive and well in Nelson!

HUGS: To the five knights in shining armor who rescued my dress from the ruthless jaws of my bike’s back brakes! You saved me from a little public nudity and a whole lot of shame. – A Damsel in Distress

HUGS: To the gentleman who paid it forward to a young student who wanted a bouquet for her mom’s birthday. Your generosity touched our hearts when you contributed an amount to make her birthday bouquet a bigger surprise for her mom. Thank you from the staff of a local flower shop!

HUGS: To the beautiful tree planting job in Davies Street Park. Looking forward to watching these colourful trees grow!

SLUGS: To the person who ran over my dog with her car. I was not inside my house, I was in the park catching my puppy who had also escaped from my house. I didn’t appreciate you standing in my doorway while I was frantically trying to find my phone to call a cab and the vet, and I apologize for being rude, but feel you could have been more sympathetic. I just got laid off work. There’s still time for us both to make amends and if you could help me with a part of the bill, my dog and I would both appreciate it.

HUGS: To my new neighbours in Kaslo! Unbelievable energy and goodness and beauty surrounds. Thank you for the lovely Thanksgiving bouquet delivered right to my door. My heart is happy! My doggie even has a new best friend and the owners let me inside, too. I will be here for the long haul for sure. Please stop by for a cup o’ tea or glass of wine so I can make some more true friendships. – Lucky to be home
