Nelson’s hugs and slugs

Nelson's weekly hugs and slugs from the community.

HUGS. Many hugs for Cindy at Walmart for finding my wallet and keeping it safe! Thank you, thank you!

SLUGS. To those pre-paid phone cards that give misleading information about rates and destinations. They take advantage of people on a tight budget.

Hugs. A big hug to the fellow who phoned two times that he found my keys. My phone number was on them. Your kindness will not be forgotten.

SLUGS. To winter. I’m ready for spring now and some sunshine.

HUGS. To my co-workers who make hard weeks much more bearable.

SLUGS. A big, fat, slimy slugs to restaurants that block up half the sidewalk with their sandwich board. There is lots of room to put it off to the side where it blocks no sidewalk. It can still be seen from everywhere that it was when it was impeding pedestrian traffic. Sidewalks are for people.
