Hugs and Slugs – November 27

If you have a hug or a slug, simply email reporter@boundarycreektimes.com with your short quips, compliments or complaints.

Slugs: To people who dropped off their kitchen garbage behind the recycling bins and the airport fence—dead fish and a turkey! Really??

Hugs: To all who worked so hard to make Halloween in Midway such a great evening! Oct. 31 turned out to be an exceptionally pleasant evening, with lots of visiting, a cheery bonfire, hot dogs and hot chocolate, and the spooky house at the community hall.

Hugs: To Jolly McMynn and her helpers for the wonderful pumpkin patch and decorations at the community hall on Halloween.

Slugs: To the men who did not remove their hats and to the people who carried on a discussion about the upcoming election during the Remembrance Day ceremonies in Greenwood.

Slugs and Shame: To those who slam others on Facebook with their disrespectful untruths.

Hugs: To the two BCSS students who buried the cat which had been killed on the road near the school. Apparently the driver who had hit the cat stopped and moved it to the field beside the road. When the kids saw it they got a box, shovel and silk flowers and buried the cat on the hill above the school sports field.

Hugs: To Doug and Jolly McMynn of Family Foods for the hot chocolate, coffee and cake at the Ingram Bridge cenotaph on Remembrance Day. It was very nice to have on that cold, cold day.

Hugs: To all of the people who ran for office.

Hugs: To my blond cowboy for lassoing my wayward (on the loose) Explorer at the gas station. A brief meeting, “the vote”, thankful offering— lunch.

 

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 reporter@boundarycreektimes.com with your short quips, compliments or complaints; or you may drop them off at 263 South Copper Street in Greenwood.
