This week’s Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area

To the person who stole the memorial plaque for the deceased Japanese CIC student who drowned at Lakeside Park in 1992.

HUGS. Big hugs to the handsome young gentleman who gave me $10 for gas at the airport gas station. You’re awesome, thank you for keeping chivalry alive!

 

SLUGS. To the person who stole the memorial plaque for the deceased Japanese CIC student who drowned at Lakeside Park in 1992. Please return it to its resting spot at Tenth Street Campus so Shigeru can once again rest in peace.

 

HUGS. To Princess Daisy riding in her Royal Carriage. When I see your happy face as you are towed in to town by your person, I can`t help but to smile and give a small chuckle.              – Cheered-up Cyclist

 

Hugs. To the teams that played slo-pitch in the rain and mud on May 23rd… What a fun evening!

 

SLUGS. To the teachers’ union for ruining the Trafalgar tradition of sending off the Grade 8 class with a special year-end trip. Your political struggles with the government have soured a whole lot of kids who can’t understand why they are being punished because their mentors can’t sort it out.

 

SLUGS. To the man and woman who were so busy yelling at me about my dogs being off leash. You did not give me a chance to tell you that where we were walking was not in a park’s on-leash area, we were on the tracks. If I had of known there was something for them to chase I would not let them off. They are well behaved. So please try to understand that the path we take was not an on-leash area. I’m just sorry that I let them get so far ahead of me.

 

Slugs. To the group who left bags of garbage and empty alcohol containers all over Bannock Point Recreation Site during the Victoria Day long weekend. The campers that came after you didn’t appreciate hauling out your trash.
