HUGS: Hugs and a huge thank you to the Nelson Leafs for a classy short-handed last home game of the year! – A fan
HUGS: To whoever left a beer store bag with a 26er of Beefeater gin and ginger ale at a bus stop in Nelson. Sorry for your loss, but you made two girls very happy!
HUGS: To the Pulpit Rock hiker who found my car keys on the mountain and left them at the bottom of the trail for me.
HUGS: To the city. They put so much sand and salt on the roads that I don’t need to buy snow tires anymore. With the money I’ll save I can buy myself a respirator.
HUGS: To the fine young man who took time out if his day to change a flat tire for two ladies on the way to cross-country ski. You made our day and we will pay it forward.
HUGS: To all the commuter cyclists who have been getting onto the streets lately. You riding your bike shows you care about yourself, your community and your environment! Keep those wheels turning. WE LOVE YOU!!
SLUGS: To whomever came into my yard through a closed gate and stole my collection of moose, elk and deer antlers. Those were memories of past hunting trips and adventures with my kids. Do the right thing and bring them back.
HUGS: Lots of big hugs from our baby and happy parents to nurses and doctor for showing an immense amount of love, patience, care and professionalism at the delivery of our firstborn. Keep doing what you are doing best and make lots of babies happy and healthy.
HUGS: To the family on the North Shore who spread happiness throughout the year with their seasonal lighting displays on their dock! We loved your “Joy” sign at Christmas along with the tree shape on your boat. Your Valentine heart with Cupid’s arrow brightened up the dark February nights! Thank you!
SLUGS: To irresponsible dog owners. Last week on Baker St. I witnessed a leashed dog being attacked by an unleashed dog. Many owners are bringing their dogs to Baker St. unleashed, and allow them to do their “business” on our sidewalks. Big hugs to responsible dog owners who do leash and pick up after their dogs.
HUGS: A real beautiful longer-than-most hug to a local festival for their psychedelic tickets. Mine has not only flashbacked my freaky weekend but also patched my brake lines and tempo connected ruptured arteries in a pinch. Great huggy work guys. Maybe carbon fibre hologram ticks this year? Or maybe just throw the better party that you should.
SLUGS: To the big guy in the dark grey truck who almost hit a pedestrian. You were turning left onto Vernon St. at the four-way stop on Baker. The car in front of you turned, the car in front of me went, and then the pedestrian began to walk. You weren’t paying attention. As you turned you had to slam on your breaks to avoid hitting the gentleman. Then you fingered him! Shame on you!!
HUGS: To the convenient little store on the corner, on the great sloping hillside of our charmed town. Your friendly staff always puts a smile in my heart, and veggies in my fridge. Your dedicated service is appreciated by all of us. Candy for the jostling children, milk and bread for the rushed parents, smokes for the smokers, and a simple tomato or two for me. Thank you for your years of service!
HUGS: To my wonderful husband who pulled off another stellar RoboGames this year. Your endless volunteer time and effort did not go unnoticed. The community should be proud to have such a dedicated member teaching and mentoring the youth in the amazing world of technology. And hugs to all the youth who participated in the 2016 RoboGames, we saw some of the best robots to date. Great job!
