HUGS & SLUGS: Hugs win 11-4

Did you hit a truck rim? Do you put up Christmas lights? Did you sand a path for someone? If so there is a hug or slug for you this week.

HUGS: Hugs to the ladies who make our coffees hot and sweet! You make our day. – Newspaper staff

HUGS: To the father/son mechanic team who always go above and beyond to assist us in a pinch or during a scheduled service.

HUGS: Big hugs and thank you to the person(s) who found the lost Trafalgar GPS and turned it in. The student who was panicking is now relieved.

HUGS: Big hugs to all of those who are helping others in need. Every act of kindness makes a difference. Thank you to all those who give selflessly this holiday season.

SLUGS: To all involved on the Hall St. “improvements.” Somehow you made a bad intersection worse and now very dangerous. Shameful use of tax money.

HUGS: To whoever rescued my son’s work helmet off the road and placed it on top of a sign where I could easily find it.Your action is greatly appreciated! Big hugs.

HUGS: Great big hugs to the nice fella who sanded a path for me to get back to my vehicle,without falling on the ice!! It wasmuch appreciated. A Grateful Mom

SLUGS: To people who don’t clean up after their dogs or let them roam freely in town. Nothing like your child playing in their own yard in the snow and coming in covered in dog poop.

HUGS: To the businesses who DO NOT take the flyers out of the Nelson Star. We are capable of choosing whether we use them or not. I, for one, use them. Perhaps a blue recycle bin with the papers.

HUGS: Huge and many hugs and sunshine to the meter reader who helped me get into my totally frozen car on Granite Rd. Your help was so appreciated. I am paying that kindness forward a hundred fold!! Thank you so much!!!

SLUGS: To those who sneak in and park in the big reserved private parking lot next to theSalvation Army. All those spaces are reserved and paid for by others who then can’t park in them. We now tow without warning! Parking Manager

HUGS: Big hugs to the incredible creator, soloists, dancers, puppeteers, orchestra, chorus and behind the scenes personnel who brought a marvellous and creative original production to life a tour local theatre. Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

SLUGS: To the baby boomer who hit my truck rim at Save-On-Foods two Fridays ago. Not only have you depleted my pension but you also cost me $40 to get it fixed. Please tell the truth next time, because you’re a terrible liar when confronted. It was clearly you!

HUGS: To the Strong Start co-ordinator and the moms I never met with unbelievable generosity.I am currently eight months pregnant and these moms provided my family with everything I could possible need for my new baby to come. I am extremely grateful for their kindness.

HUGS: Every year the residents of Jubilee Manor look forward to the Christmas light tour. This year we are heading out on Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. Please crank up those lights and look for us! A huge thank you to all who decorate their houses so beautifully!! We really look forward to it every year.
