HUGS & SLUGS: Hugs win 8-4

Are you a courteous driver? Did you rescue someone from a sinking boat? Did you cut down trees in Blewett? If so, these are for you.

HUGS: To the service clubs of Nelson for all their good work that they do in our community.

HUGS: Heartfelt thanks to a local family for helping out someone in need. – A grateful renter

HUGS: Many, many hugs and thanks to the best neighbourhood one could wish for. My dog and I will miss you all. – Soon to be a former neighbour

HUGS: It takes a real hero to save someone’s life. As it turns out, I have played hockey with a team full of heroes. Hugs to the teammates who saved my life and hugs to the paramedics who continued their efforts.

SLUGS: A big slap upside the head to the husband and son-in-law who was too stubborn to stop and get gas thereby making his wife’s and father-in-law’s morning longer than it should have been. Sorry guys.

SLUGS: To patrons who attend live theatre performances and proceed to take photos throughout the show. It is so disruptive to performers and other theatre-goers. Please put your phones away and enjoy the show!

SLUGS: To whoever thought moving the bus stop at the Chahko-Mika Mall from Save-On-Foods to Walmart by the garden centre. They were not thinking about the passengers, especially seniors. Please move the stop back to Save-On-Foods.

HUGS: A great big thank you to a man driving an HVAC truck. I ran out of gas and he was kind enough to pick me up. Not only did he give me a lift to the gas station but went the extra mile and gave me a ride back my truck. (See slug above for further comment.)

HUGS: To the man at Six Mile with his fabulous black and yellow fishing boat and his four kids who noticed my flare fireworks and came and got me as my boat was sinking (I can’t swim). And to the men who towed my boat to Nelson so I could get it fixed.

SLUGS: To whoever came onto our property in Blewett and cut down three huge cedars and a Douglas fir, then tagged eight more beautiful 60-foot live larch trees. You are trespassing, which is a legal offence. Shame on you for stealing from two old ladies. You are being watched!

HUGS: To those churches and groups organizing and hosting the inter-faith discussions. Pope Francis’ writings are an inspiring call to action to protect the plant. Exciting to know we can be part of the solution by working together as a community. Many the seeds that you have planted grow into big, strong trees.

HUGS: To the many alert, accomplished, courteous drivers in Nelson. I have seen some of you avert an oncoming four-car pileup with just a turn of your wheel — now how did you do that? You are the high-quality drivers who really stop for pedestrians, letting us go on our way safe and happy. – Grateful dog walker
