This week’s Hugs & Slugs offerings

To my amazing co-workers who make coming to work even more fun.

SLUGS. Regarding the slug about trailers parked in driveways, I also have a problem with this. Some people have no regard for the overall look of their neighbourhood. I understand they may want to park their boats and trailers there in the summer, but year round is not acceptable. If you are rich enough to own them, you are rich enough to store them. It does become my business when it devalues my house and neighbourhood.

 

Hugs. To everyone that supported my sister and I during our fundraising for the Corazon Cuba Trip. This is going to be an amazing experience and we couldn’t have done it without you!

 

SLUGS. To the person who walked into our office and stole the jar of money that we were collecting for the Japanese tsunami relief fund. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!

– Saddened and disgusted

 

Hugs. To the kind sir and/or madam that found my “very important” backpack and was kind enough to deliver my birth certificate back to me, you rock!

 

Slugs. To the kind sir and/or madam that delivered my birth certificate back to me… but kept the backpack, you suck!

 

Hugs. With flowers to the Lions Club and City of Nelson workers for removing those ugly trees from Lions Park. Please replace them with something attractive and shorter that doesn’t shed leaves all year. Appreciate the clear view.

 

Slugs. To the “Fat Butt Mother.” The alleyway you so cavalierly describe as being for public use is a short, narrow, dead end lane with no turn around. Until February, it was used by the seven property owners that abut it with consideration and consultation. With the advent of the daycare, we now have traffic at all times of the day and the angry fellow has had his only parking area completely blocked so many times, he vented his frustration on you. He has the right to meet his obligations in a timely fashion without waiting for a parent to discuss their child’s day. I would suggest you all park on the street at the head of the lane and walk in the 80 or so meters to the daycare.

– Another Neighbour

 

HUGS. Great big hugs to all you passers-by on Vernon Street last Saturday who honked, waved, smiled, and flashed thumbs-up to us in front of the theatre, where we were taking signatures for a survey about support for our Nelson cinema. And even better, lots of you pulled over to ask how it was going and sign the survey! We’ll be there again every Saturday in May, in front of the theatre, with historic articles and pictures that show the theatre’s interior, and gathering signatures of supporters.

– A volunteer for bringing movies back to Nelson

 

Hugs. To all the parents who step up to coach youth soccer. Thank you for all your time and dedication which make it possible for so many little people to play soccer.  We could not do it without each and every one of you. You are truly appreciated! And a huge hug to Sveta and his hours of work to get our season started. You are a saint!

 

Hugs. To my amazing co-workers who make coming to work even more fun.

 

SLUGS. A big slug to the attempts at patching the roads around town! Do the job properly, not a half-assed job at putting loose gravel that reveals the holes in the roads when it rains. Spend the time to do it properly and then it won’t be a problem over and over again.

– Annoyed driver

 

SLUGS. To Mother Nature. Bring on the sun already!
