It was a slow week, but hugs edge out slugs

The two went neck and neck, but hugs win the week 3-2.

HUGS: Big hugs to the lady on horseback who cleaned up, at her expense, the despicable mess left by certain individuals on the old Ottawa Road.  You should be given a medal.

SLUGS: Big slugs to the person who stole my  Birkenstock sandals from the NDCC. It was my first time going to the centre and I had left my shoes on the rack over night. The next day they were gone, not in either of the lost and found areas. I hope they are giving you sore feet.

SLUGS: Big slugs to whoever stole my big pumpkin and giant furry spider decoration. My four-year old was thrilled with the spider. We spent an afternoon decorating for Halloween and he was very proud of our spooky porch scene. After you stole it, I tried to buy him another one, but they were all sold out.  My little guy is quite disappointed. Please return the spider and pumpkin to our porch — no questions asked.

HUGS: Super human hugs to the EMT’s who got me to KLH in a caring and timely manner. To the doctors and emergency nurses for the thorough and warm care and also the diagnostic imagining and support workers, you all rock. Thank you.

HUGS: To all the light elves who volunteer their time.

If you have a Hug or a Slug… we’d like to hear it. Simply email us at with your short quips, compliments or complaints. Keep it tasteful and anonymous — no names of individuals or businesses, please. You can also drop by a written submission to our offices at 514 Hall Street.
