This week’ showering of hugs and slugs

To Tyler, Joe, Noah, Dylan and Nick for finding the lost dog name Winston and making sure he was saved and returned home.

HUGS. A big bear hug to the Nelson liquor store for the generous donation of teddy bears to the ER department. It makes a little one’s stay at the hospital a lot more bear-able (sorry) to have a toy to cuddle with. We are very grateful.

 

HUGS. To Tyler, Joe, Noah, Dylan and Nick for finding the lost dog name Winston and making sure he was saved and returned home.

 

HUGS. Many thanks to the Nelson Hydro line crew for their tireless efforts during the past storms and the most recent.  Your dedication to the community is above and beyond.

 

Hugs. To the gorgeous white-haired lady who helped me select the perfect chartreuse bra.

 

HUGS. To my son who has started the school year with a positive attitude and open mind. Life is made a whole lot easier when you approach it with the glass half full.

 

Hugs. To the man who gave me the finger as you drove by me the other day with your toddler in the back seat.  I wonder if the sign language you’re teaching your child includes this gesture. You must be very unhappy.  You need a hug more than I do.  Bless you.

 

HUGS. To Ryan and the crew at Granite Pointe for keeping the local course in such fantastic shape during what was a very hot and dry summer. Your commitment to keeping the fairways, greens and tee boxes in such fine shape borders on amazing. Thanks for making this an unforgettable golf season in the Kootenays. You guys rock.     – dew sweeper

 

HUGS. A big bear hug to our new friend Glen at the motel in Ainsworth for making our last-minute stay one to be remembered. Glen, you’re indeed Ainsworthy!

 

SLUGS. To the inconsiderate driver who hit-and-run backed into the blue Ford Fusion at the mall parking lot doing considerable damage to the right rear quarter panel of this car. This car is the first decent car this young family has been able to afford and your lack of caring and attention has cost them more than they can afford to repair the damage you did to their vehicle. Boo on you!

 

HUGS. To teachers after the first week of school. You will need plenty more, but let’s get it started now.

 

HUGS. To our city workers who have kept the parks, soccer pitches and all the flowering pots alive and well all over town making sure they got watered daily during our hot, dry summer. You’ve done a great job and everyone has noticed, especially our visitors walking along the lake. That’s a big area to keep cut, trimmed and watered.

 

Slugs. To the neighbour who instead of leaving a note on my door informing me he thinks my cat is leaving droppings on his lawn, anonymously leaves bags of feces on my doorstep and then my door knob for three weeks. Then calls me “dense” when I ask, “I’m supposed to know what a bag of *@!# on my door knob means?” and where it’s coming from.
