Hugs and Slugs – Nov. 21

If you have a hug or a slug, we’d like to hear it. Simply email bctimesnews@shaw.ca with your short quips, compliments or complaints.

Slugs: To the people that say “hire local” – yeah, right! Practice what you preach.

Slugs: To the person that put a bag in the Senior’s Thrift Store box full of dog poop. You are the scum of the earth!

Hugs: To all the people that use the box at the Seniors Thrift Store for good clothes. Thank you, we really appreciate it.

Hugs: To Janet Matsala for volunteering to proof the paper and making herself available for anything else we may need help with. This world needs more people like you.

Hugs: To the organizers of the Bridesville Wildhorse Saloon Dance last month. We loved the Temperance Ladies, the Bar-Keeps, the decorations, the outfits, and the music. A special time seeing Bertha dancing in the company of good friends!

Hugs: To Cris Bennett at Boundary Pharmacy for recommending a lip balm that works!

Slugs: To all the men who go to Remembrance Day services or any other services and show disrespect by leaving their hats on.

If you have a hug or a slug, we’d like to hear it. We will print the anonymous submissions for all to see. Be honest, but all we ask is that you keep it tasteful. Editor’s discretion will always be exercised. Simply email bctimesnews@shaw.ca with your short quips, compliments or complaints; or you may drop them off at 318 South Copper Street in Greenwood.
