Hugs dominate the Nelson landscape

We were in a canoe. You were in a sailboat. We capsized. You came to our rescue! Sending you our heartfelt thanks.

Hugs. For the anonymous pizzas given to the staff at Nelson Jubilee Manor – Yum! What a lovely unexpected treat. Thanks for thinking of us.

 

Hugs. To the nurses and care aides at Jubilee Manor. You are all angels. Thank you for all the awesome care of our mom.

 

Hugs. To our realtor for taking such great care of us in selling our home and buying our next. You really helped us navigate through it all and took care of every last detail with care.

 

HUGS. It’s more than a hug, it’s a massive thank you to the staff of the Nelson Star for keeping us up to date online with all the developments with the Perry Ridge fire, and subsequent spill. Our family was one of those evacuated, and nowhere else was there such up-to-date information about the circumstances facing our lovely valley. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being so heartfelt and community minded, and delivering to us not just news, but the information that we actually needed.

– Grateful in Crescent Valley

 

Hug. We were in a canoe. You were in a sailboat. We capsized. You came to our rescue! Sending you our heartfelt thanks.

 

Slugs. A big slimy slug to the coldhearted jerks who stole $3 and the NYPD hat from a kid on Stanley Street last Thursday. It was a thoroughly-enjoyed hat that I got from my auntie – please bring it back. We would all appreciate it if you would just leave other people’s stuff alone.

 

HUGS. To the bicycle riders who let you know they are coming up behind you rather than zooming by hoping you don’t move into their path, especially if the walker has a dog. Thanks.
