HUGS & SLUGS: Hugs defeat slugs 5-4

Did you return a wheelchair to the hospital? Help save a dog? Hand someone’s iPhone in to the police? If so, there is a hug or slug for you.

HUGS: Many wonderful hugs to the elf who returned the missing wheelchair to the hospital! A bit of clean up and it is back in service, helping those who need it! Thank you, thank you!

SLUGS: To the authorities who moved the longtime Save-On-Foods bus stop for a safety reason. Because of the new location the bus now goes through a uncontrolled railroad crossing in the dark of the night. Safety? A Puzzled Rider

HUGS: Huge, warm, hugs to two people from the family of the collie whom you managed to keep safe and out of harms way on Highway 3A until we could bring her safely home. Our family is sincerely grateful for your kind efforts. Thank you both!!!

HUGS: Hugs to the service club and all the hard working volunteers who set up and maintain the awesome outdoor ice rink each year. So many people of all ages use the rink day and night. Uphill in the wintertime would not be the same without it. Thank you!

HUGS: Many hugs to the kind and honest person who found my new iPhone and handed it in to the Nelson police. Thank you very much! Good karma to you and your family and best wishes for the festive season and New Year. What wonderful people we have living in Nelson!

SLUGS: To myself for not seeing a big GMC SUV driving down the Gyro Park hill onto Vernon St. I was already proceeding onto the street before I saw you and then it was too late to do anything but go faster and hope you didn’t hit me. Hugs to you for avoiding my car. Thanks! Sorry again.

SLUGS: Huge slimy slug to the guy who advertised a ride on ride share only to cancel the night before. It was so incredibly sluggish. You had two weeks to get back to me, now my kid can’t see his dad for Xmas! Huge slug for you! Karma has your number for sure. Do not have a merry Christmas! Jerk!!!!

HUGS: Super big hugs to Santa’s elf who found my wallet on the street and was kind enough to put it in my mailbox with everything intact! I was obviously distracted and not aware it had fallen out of my pocket. Your thoughtfulness definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and Happy 2016. My turn to pay it forward!!

SLUGS: Great big Christmas slugs wrapped in bows to the local business who refused to refund two items when they had not even left the store let alone wrapped up or bagged! After reviewing my receipt the items were double what I thought they cost and as they were little gifts from my children I asked to have them refunded. This was after spending over $100 in the store. Will be thinking twice before I spend more money at your business!
