Stars and Stingers: Aug. 22

Stingers to the yellow belly coward who put water and sugar in my truck Saturday night while it was parked downtown. We will meet.

  • Aug. 22, 2012 3:00 p.m.

Stingers to the four ATVers with winches who left the family stranded in a mudhole on the way to Wapta Falls. For future reference it is customary in Canada to lend a hand when you can.

Stars the cool and funky MC who hosted the Summer Kicks shows.

A gas tank full of stingers to the yellow belly coward who put water and sugar in my truck Saturday night while it was parked downtown. We will meet.

Stars to my friend for making me her Maid of Honour.

Stingers to whoever leaves their pizza boxes lying around downtown. There are garbage cans all over town.

Stars to my friend for not wasting a good drink, moth and all.

Stingers to the taxi who would not pick up a mother and her infant at 10:30 at night because the one driver who was working wanted to go off shift.

Stingers to people who think riding a bicycle down the middle of the road while chatting away on a cell is a good thing to do.
