HUGS: A big hug to the stranger who left flowers on my windshield a few Fridays ago. It was a great way to end a tough week! I will pay it forward!
SLUGS: To the person who wonders if what’s-his-name will be at Pride this year. That is a public place and he has every Charter right to be there. Seems you are a little intolerant too.
HUGS: To the person who found my iPhone today and turned it into the Nelson police. So sweet whoever you are I will pay it forward and do a good deed for someone. Thank you soooo much.
HUGS: To the person who picked up my five finger Vibram shoe from the parking lot at NDCC and took it to the lost and found. I was overjoyed to have it back on my foot again – and am still grinning from ear to ear about my good fortune.
SLUGS: To the idiots who caused the freight train to come to a complete stop near The Grain at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday evening despite repeated loud blasts of the train’s whistle. Your actions were both foolish and inconsiderate, especially to the engineer.
HUGS: From a disgruntled business owner who had their window kicked in a few weeks back, we send out a BIG hug to the bystander who saw the event, called police and stayed until police arrived. Also, hugs to the man who was walking by and helped sweep glass at 10:30 p.m. Thank you!
SLUGS: To those initiating, promoting and participating in the manufactured real estate situation that has come to Nelson. Say no to overbidding and contributing to the mindset that has leaked in from the Vancouver real estate market. This situation is making the lack of housing in Nelson even worse! Don’t play the game!
SLUGS: To the city, which has made shopping downtown Nelson so inhospitable. Between the oversized patios taking up parking spots, the closed parkade, the faded pedestrian crosswalks and especially the attack dog style parking meter enforcement, I spend less time shopping and more time avoiding Baker St. This town is pushing consumers away. Enough is enough!
