We Need Heroes (But Not You)

Mommy is drawn inside of the Ghost Buster symbol

When this virus first arrived, the news was filled with horror stories of shortages.  It saddened me to read of so much need and know there was nothing I could do.  But wait.  The Red Cross needed blood.  Surely I could at least donate blood!

Off I trekked to the Red Cross website to find the nearest donation location only to find that I do not qualify.   Despite being lumpy and chubby, I do not meet their weight criteria.  (I am not underweight, I am just very short.)  Even in this time of crisis, my gift is unwanted.

Bad girl.  No cookie.

Who, me? I wouldn't pee on the sunflowers.

Did someone mention cookies?

***************************************

To make sure  my puppy remains happily plump enough to escape the Puppy Traffickers as well as donate blood…order a copy of Dream Our World!

Cover of the book Dream Our World

In Dream Our World, Bitey and Toby visit the Museum of the Imagination where they insert themselves into the artwork.  Plus, they get to enjoy a day of unsupervised fun because all the humans are banned from public spaces.

Dream Our World would make a great gift for someone stuck at home!

Dream Our World is available from Amazon.

  1. I know just how you feel. What I wanted to do was sew facemasks to donate through the Joann Fabrics program. But their kits are limited and hard to get, and they can’t tell you what to order in terms of amount of fabric and elastic and interfacing to do it on your own. I sent e-mails and made phone calls, finally they said they just couldn’t figure out quantities for me.

    I still help. I pray.

      • make ties! All you need are strips of fabric about 2 feet long, sew them to the corners just like you would the elastic, but use one on each corner. To make a simple mask, it’s a 9×6 rectangle, sew the ties or elastics in the corners as you sew the pieces together, leave a hole to turn it, make two or three tucks (I do better with just two) and topstitch it around. Easy peasy

  2. HUGS… RE BLOOD DONNING.. I TOO CANNOT. AT 16 I STARTED MY APPRENTICESHIP T GUYS HOSPITAL IN LONDON. I DECIDED TO BE A BLOOD DONER EAST THERE. BUT.. THEY HAD TO GET THE CHIEF FELLA EACH TIME TO FIND MY VEINS. HE REFUSED FINALLY SAYING THAT ONE DAY I WOULD NEED THE VEINS AND HE WASNT GOING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MESSING THEM UP MORE !! SO FATE DECRIED I WASNT TO BE A DONER, HOW TRUE IT BECAME. I HAVE HAD MANY MANY TIMES IN HOSPITAL.. AND MY VEINS ARE TERRIBLE !
