Our Boy Scout troop had a fund raiser today. They've sold many different items to help pay for summer camp...Christmas wreaths, candles, recycled metal..lots of projects over the years. Today they did something different. Aultman Hospital came and did a blood drive at the Church. The troop will get money depending on the number of donors. We had a good turnout. But that can be deceiving...not everyone who comes can give. Some are turned down for physical reasons. Some for traveling out of the country...some because they are big sissies! Ok, just kidding there. I know the boys were thankful for all that gave life giving blood for those in need. Grateful for all that ventured out on a very rainy Saturday. Working in surgery I see many pints given for patients who are very grateful for the gift of blood donation. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. There are many reasons for not donating. But if you can, or never have before, please consider this easy way to help. You never know, it could be you or a family member who will need it.
Jack doesn't like to donate..not that he's afraid, or hates needles or anything like that. His blood just seems to take forever to flow! Not today though. It was fine and he was in and out quickly. He's a good example to our Scout troop. Someone the boys can look up too. Plus he's O pos...a good flavor!
I didn't even flinch.
Drip, Drip, Drip...Actually, more like flow, flow, flow..
Well, that didn't take too long! Hopefully this pint of A pos. will make someone's day a bit better.
I don't hog all the fun. I called Donna (Starkey Hollow) and she came over to spend this rainy afternoon donating for the cause. Thanks good friend! The Boy Scouts thank you too.
After donating my pint of life, I headed over to my fav store..Aldi...and they had pineapple on sale for $1.25...Yummy..also strawberries for 1.45 a pound. That's not only a good buy, that's good eatin'!
MMMMMMMMMMMM....I see fruit salad in my future!
