SLUGS. To drivers who continue to text on the highway straight stretches. Time is going run out on you… Let’s just hope you don’t take anyone else with you.

HUGS. To drivers who share the road and slow down for bikes on the Orange Bridge. Makes the pedal so much more enjoyable when you ease off your pedal.

HUGS. A huge hug to the woman who lives upstairs! I arrived here in Nelson less than a month ago from the big city of K-town only to be welcomed so graciously with a lovely gift of warm home-baked muffins!  I have been pleasantly surprised by the very neighbourly deeds of the people around me here in Nelson! Thanks once again and big hugs!

SLUGS. To the prince I was dating who was also dating two other women but, for his own benefit, led us all to believe the others were only friends. You’ve deceived and humiliated me. To think I ever looked up to you or admired you. — Thanks for returning my toothbrush

HUGS. I would like to give a huge hug out to Nelson Fire Rescue for helping out the 4Cats Arts Studio at ArtWalk on Friday night. Thanks, Martin! Your speedy and efficient hosing down expertise saved us hours of cleanup! Much appreciated from both 4Cats and ArtWalk!

HUGS. Lots of hugs and flowers to the family who donated the beautiful wooden garden boxes and to the greenhouse and to “Osprey’s Neighbour” for the donation of plants. You made the residents of Jubilee Manor very happy! Thank you so much!

SLUGS. To the speed boat driver who came too close to my kayak when there was loads of room for you to get by without almost capsizing me. Keep your wake down when there are smaller boats around, and be a good example to your kids who thought it was cool and waved at me as I tried to manage the large waves.

HUGS. Great big hugs to the administrative assistant of a local dental office who went out of her way to help us get on our way for a summer holiday! Your friendly nature and professionalism does not go unnoticed!

SLUGS. Whoever hit my van and left a big dent in the side, shame on you. I’m a poor student who can’t afford to fix it.

HUGS. Giant hugs to the fantastic coaches at the Soccer Quest summer camp for all the hugs they gave to my little one this week. It was a big week for her trying something new and your enthusiasm was contagious. She had a blast. – Happy Mommy
