Although I loved this topic idea, I had no firm plans about what specifically this entry would be about - until I stepped outside this morning. That's when I saw a vehicle I hadn't considered at all: a yellow crane. A neighbor across the street and around the bend was having a tree removed, and apparently needed heavy equipment to do it. I had to get some pictures!
But wait: is a crane a form of transportation? Well, it was used to transport a tree, wasn't it? It also carried its driver to my neighborhood and back. You do know I can never do a straightfoward interpretation of one of these challenges, don't you? All right, then.
I fished out my camera - I thought I'd forgotten to grab it, but there it was in my purse - and started taking pictures. Unfortunately, the more photos I took, the more it became clear the crane was done lifting things, at least for the moment. I was therefore surprised and pleased to zoom in on a few of the early shots tonight, and discover that they showed the tree being lifted after all.
Half an hour later, John said: "Did you find the pictures I took this morning?" Oh. Well, it's good that John got the "money shot," since I didn't!
And here's another unusual form of transportation:
The Gift of Life only comes in one color.
American Red Cross 1-800-GIVE-LIFE
The bloodmobile came to our building today. A week ago Saturday I was unable to donate because my iron level was "37," whatever that means, so I signed up to try again at the office today. In between, I ate a lot of beef and a fair amount of Cream of Wheat to get my iron up. Iron supplements don't cut it: there's a family history of hemochromatosis (which causes the buildup of iron), and I know from experience that I don't tolerate pills with iron very well. So I avoid such things - too much, apparently. I probably don't have the stupid condition at all, just a stomach that doesn't like aspirin and mineral tablets. Potassium pills make me sick, too.
So anyway, I got a couple of pictures of the bloodmobile from the second floor window, went downstairs, checked in and came outside. Here's the other side of the bloodmobile. So, is this transportation? After all, it mostly just sits in parking lots all day. Ah, but in the morning it presumably carries at least some of those Red Cross nurses to the donor site. And at the end of the session, it's used to transport all that donated blood where it needs to go next.
And here's the entr--no. That's the exit! Oops! Enter through the back, remember?
Guess what? My iron was still only 37! I'll have to try harder to fix that. I did have an interesting moment before the bad news, though, reading one of the empty bags. Did you know that blood is by prescription only? Heck, who would want to go down to Walgreen's and buy some? Well, yes, Carly, vampires, but who else?
