Hugs edge out slugs this week

Once again, people seem more inclined to praise others for their actions.

SLUGS: Many slimy slugs to the disrespectful and ignorant individuals who cast an unwelcome shadow at the Remembrance Day gathering. These people misuse the freedom others fought and died for. You are entitled to your opinion but the Service of Remembrance on November 11th is not the place to flaunt it. Many of us there are honouring family members no longer with us, many of us were personally involved as civilians. Please keep you opinions under wraps for the 11th at least. – War Bride

HUGS: Hugs to those businesses and citizens who pick up the garbage in and around our beautiful Nelson. They should get paid by the Regional District and the City of Nelson!

SLUGS: Slugs to all those of you who throw your fast food and miscellaneous other garbage out of the windows of your car onto the streets and highways in and around Nelson. PICK IT UP!

HUGS: Thank you to the Village of Slocan, the Legion, the Slocan Volunteer Fire Department, the Slocan Women’s Institute and local businesses and donors for executing another spooktacular Halloween Hoot in Slocan!  This free, fun, family-oriented event builds and celebrates community.

HUGS: We have had a moving disaster! On Saturday, November 2 my dear hubby took the wrong box of children’s books to Positive Apparel on Front Street. These were my grandsons’ favourites that Gramma always took when she was babysitting. A lady bought most of this small group soon after. Hugs to the person who kindly returns them to Positive Apparel. Gramma and grandsons would be grateful.

SLUGS: Slugs to Grampa for recycling too well.

HUGS: Hugs to R.T. at a local jewelry shop for repairing the frames of my eye glasses. I can see clearly now.

SLUGS: I say, slugs to the local power utility who has not settled with their workers yet. They have been petitioning outside since summer and now it’s getting colder out. Will you please speed things up or somehow meet them halfway in getting the dispute resolved, finally?

HUGS: Great big hugs to everyone who attended Monday’s Remembrance Day ceremony. It’s important for people to remember the sacrifices made by others to protect the freedoms we now take for granted. Hugs also to anyone who bought and wore a poppy. The veterans of this city and this country deserve to be thanked.

SLUGS: To all the fireworks-happy people who make Halloween night more of a terror than a treat. Just because you like the sound of booming explosions late at night, doesn’t mean you have to expose the rest of us to such an annoying racket.

HUGS: I’d like to say hugs to the man who so kindly helped me when I was having trouble with my car. Not everybody is willing to stop and lend a hand, or in this case a cellphone.
