HUGS & SLUGS: Hugs win 9-6

Are you a dream crasher? A school bus driver? Someone's future husband? Watch for a hug or slug intended for you this week.

SLUGS: To all of the dream crashers.

HUGS: To the Nelson Star for printing our hugs and slugs.

SLUGS: To the real estate market in Nelson. You know why.

HUGS: To the young lady handing out Valentine’s Day cards on Baker St. How thoughtful! You made my day!

HUGS: To the thoughtful person(s) who found our dog’s tag and hung it on our North Shore driveway post much appreciated.

HUGS: Huge hugs to the school bus driver who, after his work day was over, went back to Apex to pick up a backpack that a student had left there.

HUGS: Big hugs to my incredibly handsome future husband. You are such a special guy. Thanks for bringing smiles to my face each and every day! Love, a girl and her rabbit.

HUGS: To all the people who stopped to help me after I had an accident on March 3 between Nelson and Salmo. All the support and the kindly donated blanket was very much appreciated.

HUGS: To the amazing folks from Blewett and Taghum who picked up the trash along the highway on a rainy Saturday morning, along with the church group working from the Nelson end. Good job, people. It was pretty disgusting to see all that litter!

SLUGS: Great big slimy slugs to the lazy losers who throw their fast-food coffee cups out on the highway instead of taking them home, and to all those who don’t secure their loads on the way to the transfer station. We have noticed a huge increase in litter since it opened.

HUGS: To the large group of volunteers who spent a rainy Saturday cleaning up the garbage on the stretch of highway between Pacific Insight and Nelson. Slugs to those who still litter, I realize a lot of this garbage falls out of recycling-loaded trucks, but a lot of it is the result of littering. Protect our paradise!

HUGS: Biggest hugs ever to the pharmacists who went above and beyond the call of duty, calling in the qualified person (on their day off) to make a single tube of cream for my little girl. The past couple week shave been the toughest experiences I have had to go through as a parent and the compassion these folks showed was truly inspiring and heart warming. Thank you so much!

SLUGS: To the residents of Nelson and area. We live in a beautiful valley surrounded by trees and water. When you drive out towards the Taghum area, you run into all the garbage that is on its way to the new transfer station at Grohman Narrows. Come on, people of Nelson and area, let’s take some responsibility on transporting waste. Let’s help welcome visitors into a clean, orderly and healthy looking city.

SLUGS: To perfume wearers. Lots of people are scent-sensitive and one whiff of perfume can ruin their day by triggering headaches, nausea and migraines. It doesn’t matter the scent. Perfume became popular to mask body odour, but we bathe and brush our teeth these days. I’d rather smell B.O. than any perfume. Schools and many offices are scent-free, and I think all public spaces should follow. Your vanity is not worth my migraine.

SLUGS: To the impatient, rice-coloured labradoodle driving the blue Pathfinder. You should be put in your kennel with no treats for the way you behaved at the four way stop last Friday! It was clearly my turn to proceed, and because I’m older and drive slower, your pea-sized canine brain thought it would be okay to hit the juice and swerve dangerously around my front bumper. Double-dog slugs to your master, whose lap you were riding on. If I had better vision, I would have called in your plate number!
