This weeks showering of hugs and slugs

To the couple who shared their wonderful vacation spot with me. I was waiting for the ideal door to open. You did it.

Slugs. To an individual in this town who blew in and blew out leaving behind windy promises.

 

HUGS. Huge hug and squish and good karma to the kind soul who handed my Mastercard into the pharmacy on Baker Street on Friday, October 26. You should have seen my stress turn into a sigh of relief!! Thank you!

 

Slugs. To the person who owns the big golden dog (off leash) that bit our small dog (on leash) on the back of his neck at Taghum on October 9. You were nowhere near when your dog approached and bit our dog, and you both were long gone before we realized that our dog had in fact been injured, not just snapped at. After several visits to the vet (and many hundreds of dollars later) our dog is finally getting better.

 

HUGS. To Kevin, Laura and everybody else working so hard behind the scenes to bring Jesus Christ Superstar to life next week on the Capitol Theatre stage. Your dedication to all those singing and dancing is incredible.

 

Slugs. To the person who thought they needed to get ready for the winter, by taking my Nepalese pashina scarf from the front seat of my vehicle on Victoria Street. May it feel totally uncomfortable around your neck! You can drop it off at Oso Negro, to ease your conscience.

 

Hugs. To the couple who shared their wonderful vacation spot with me. I was waiting for the ideal door to open. You did it. Thanks and I’m off in a few months.

 

Hugs. To the Village of Slocan for putting on another spooktacular Halloween Hoot: a safe, free, fun, family event.

 

Slugs. To the people at Halloween Hoot who littered: you should have dressed up as pigs because that’s what you are.
