This week’ smattering of hugs and slugs

Slugs. To people who steal from their neighbour’s gardens.

SLUGS. To the mindless motor boat drivers. Your wake disrupts those in smaller watercraft. Slow down! The lake is meant to be enjoyed by all. It is less fun for us when we get swamped by your wake as you zoom by. Wake up!

 

HUGS. Thanks so much to Deborah at a downtown shop for your extraordinary customer service. You went way above and beyond for me and I appreciate it! Thank you. – I Can See Clearly Now

 

Slugs. To the driver who parked her bus by the only goal being used at Lakeside Soccer fields, then told my son and his friend to move so their ball wouldn’t hit her windows. They were there first! The parking lot was empty!

 

HUGS. To the City of Nelson crew who has taken extra pride and care in creating the awesome park at the top of Davies Street. You have given the community yet another wonderful asset and we appreciate your efforts every time we look out our window. Stop by for a beer anytime and soak in your work.

 

HUGS. Super Hugs to Lynn at a downtown shop for going way above and beyond during the flood last Wednesday. Your kindness enabled gymnastics classes to run as usual making many Nelson children happy and healthy. – Staff and gymnasts at Glacier Gymnastics

 

HUGS. To the Kaslo Golf Club for enabling two junior golfers the chance to improve their game by attending the Selkirk Saints golf camp. With sincere appreciation from a future Men’s Rainbow Winner!

 

Slugs. To people who steal from their neighbour’s gardens. We start our seeds in March, lug compost and manure, dig the beds, get up early to water and weed so that we can enjoy the flowers and eat the fruit and vegetables. Your behavior is disrespectful and ignorant. Grow your own garden and you’ll understand.

 

Hugs. To my wonderful massage therapist for tracking me down! I thought I’d lost you. Looking forward to seeing you again.

 

SLUGS. Huge slugs to the people that insist on firing off fireworks, especially since it is illegal to do it right now. Big fine if caught! Wait until New Year’s when it’s safe.

 

Slugs. To the opportunistic lowlifes that stole my vehicle from the driveway one early morning. Hey Einstein, I guess you didn’t count on waking up half the neighbourhood with the noisy engine and that cracking of the wooden fence you expertly backed into. I see great things in your future with bad karma sure to follow. – Jeepers

 

Hugs. To Nelson Police Department members who recovered my precious little old jeep a couple of blocks away within minutes of my call and thanks to that bad karma, apprehended the LOSERS who stole it.  – Jeepers, aka light sleeper

 

SLUGS. Did we really need yellow lines painted up Stanley and Ward streets to keep drivers on their side of the road? If you want to waste taxpayers money again, we should have put up three-foot wide stop signs on Stanley Street so these people could see and use them.

 

Hugs. To responsible dog owners who keep their dogs in their own yards, pick up their poop, don’t leave them barking outside for hours and walk them under control. You are appreciated!
