I’m not the ideal candidate for donating blood: my blood pressure runs very low like both my parents; my veins are small; I’m not a big fan of needles. The last time I gave blood it took fifteen minutes compared to the four or five it took each of my family members to donate. Brin and I came straight from our workout (see pix below) same as last time but my blood was flowing even slower this visit and they had to stop and dispose of the half bag I’d filled. I was so disappointed—its a painful process for me when it’s successful but to endure for nothing was sad. I may need to find another way to give back to my community and keep the love flowing.
STRONG is the new skinny!
Up, up, and away....I'm inching my way from a sixteen inch box to twenty inch.

Norman has a funny sense of humor; he likes to twist what you say or do just slightly. For example: I decide to bake steak fries and ask if I should put some on the tray for him. “No thanks” he replies. So I don’t. And then, when I’m ready to eat mine, he asks: “Did you make me some fries?,” knowing full well I didn’t … and he doesn’t want any, of course.
Mondays are my quilt guild day. Usually I leave home about 9 AM – long before Norman is up and stirring and I always leave him a status note about the trash, since Monday is also put out the trash for Tuesday collection day. Yesterday was no different. So you can imagine how much I laughed when I came home and saw my note, carefully edited by Norman. He’s a funny guy!
if you look closely, you can see where he edited the note so it reads" trash ready to go out "with you" ...
Just too funny and a Happy May Day to you, too!
