This is not kelp. Amazing, it looks exactly like it. About 3 inches wide and 15 feet if you could stretch it down the beach. A Life Loop made of steel. Maybe it once held pilings together on a dock or kept a bulkhead in line. Now it reminds me of the yellow ribbon loop to ‘Support Our Troops’ or the pink one to ‘Find a Cure for Breast Cancer,’ or other causes different organizations and advertisers print on a colored loop
I gave blood today. O-neg- universal donor – only 9% of the population though. I’m always getting calls to give a pint. A person can donate every 56 days. Your body makes new blood, so it’s not hazardous unless you don’t take care of yourself days before and after.
Check out a Red Cross blood donation spot near you – the ones at churches and community centers have amazing free homemade goodies to get your blood sugar up there afterwards, and bottled water and juices too. Takes all of a half hour out of your day (though I don’t blame you for opting out if you have an aversion to needles). If you live in the Puget Sound region, call and ask where the Blood Mobile is due next: 1-800 – 398 – 7888 Or go online at Puget Sound Blood Center. Just think – 3 lives saved, by you alone…lying down!
