HUGS & SLUGS: Hugs for kindness, slugs for thieves and late-night screamers

It's a tie: 4 slugs, 4 hugs.

HUGS: Thank you to my wonderful neighbours who help bring in groceries.

SLUGS: To whoever went into my truck at night and stole my backpack full of all my biking gear and pads along with my extra set of keys. The replacement cost is too high for all that gear. I really hope I don’t fall now.

HUGS: To everyone who supported Nelson’s littlest human, born at 25 weeks gestation, and her family last year. Baby has just turned one and is thriving. Thank you. – One happy aunty

SLUGS: To the screamers on Baker St. at 3 to 5 a.m. outside of apartment buildings. Some people still work on Saturdays and Sundays. Shut the heck up! Please take the noise to another location – down to the airport or to the dump. Please let people get some ZZZZZZs. Most of us don’t want to be woken up seven times a night.

HUGS: A huge hug to the city employees who retrieved my dog’s toy from the roof at Lions Park, and even brought it back to my workplace for me. People like you are why I am so proud to call Nelson my home. Thank you!

SLUGS: To whoever decided to smash the window in our car to steal stuff. I thought driving home from work at 10:30 at night and breaking down on the side of the highway and being stuck there for a few hours was bad enough. But thanks for not stealing the double stroller I had in the trunk for our 12-month-old twins! – A young, hard-working, low-income family

HUGS: To the hard working crew that rebuilt the rock wall at Hume School. Very well done. Looks great. Hugs also to the person or people at the school board that decided to rebuild rather than using ugly concrete blocks. Great decision.

 

SLUGS: To whoever walked away with the Rubbermaid garbage can stored in the grey vinyl shed in Shoreacres. We had only just moved back to the area and hadn’t yet unpacked everything. The garbage can held bits and pieces during our move. Springs and other pieces of our trampoline as well as other items that have sorely been missed since then. Return of the can and the items to the same place you took them from would be great – with no questions asked.
