Hugs & Slugs for the week of July 21

"SLUGS. To the residents on Five Mile Beach for littering the beach and public access with your boats, furniture and bad attitude."

SLUGS. To the residents on Five Mile Beach for littering the beach and public access with your boats, furniture and bad attitude. The sand and shore belongs to us all up to the high water mark and we will not allow it to be commercialized or turned into your private playground.

 

SLUGS. My heartfelt slugs to the person who found it socially acceptable to steal my lawn sprinklers from my yard.  I can’t see how anyone could enjoy these decades-old spinklers knowing that they had been homemade by someone else for their own use.  Here’s hoping that you’ll feel ashamed of yourself every time you use them.

 

HUGS. To Peter at Mainjet Water Sports for helping me with my weed trimmer. You really know the meaning of the words “customer service.” Thank you for your kind help.

-Grateful gardener

 

HUGS. Huge colossal hugs to the incredible girls that work at Urban Legends. The time, consideration, and knowledge you share with customers who enter the shop is unparalleled. Thanks for renewing my faith in human nature.

 

HUGS. To the one that found out her prince was dating two others at the same time. Maybe I was one of those he was dating; it sounds like the same guy. Hope he lost all of you. The one I was dating lost a long-time friendship over it. At least you got your toothbrush back; I didn’t get anything. What goes around will come back on him.

-Won’t be fooled again

 

HUGS. To Jagannatha Express, the only place I can go to get a delicious healthy lunch and not have to worry about my dietary restrictions. For a vegan with gluten intolerance this is quite the treat. (My friend who is not a vegan or vegetarian also loves this place.)
