Blue Monday - Bloodmobile

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.


I still cannot leave a comment for one blogger who links in each Monday. If you don't get a comment from me, please, please assume you're the one whose blog I cannot figure out and leave me a clue as to how to reach you.

See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The other day, Johnny spotted this big, beautiful, blue bloodmobile parked outside the grocery store. Fortunately for us, he snapped these pictures.






Although he has in the past, he did not donate that day. Have you ever donated blood?



Happy Blue Monday!

Nice blue bus, Happy Blue Monday!

LV said...

No, I have not given blood. I think I need to get some new and make sure it was hot as I stay cold all the time. Glad Johnny looks out for us.

Ileana said...

I've donated blood. We dont have a bloodmobile here but we can donate blood in hospital.Happy Blue Monday!

Simone Weichenhain said...

A blue Bloodmobile, never seen that before.

Lina Gustina said...

Never seen any bloodmobile in my city. I've donated twice. I'd like to do it more, but I have low blood pressure.
Happy Monday, Sally.

Lovely looking bus, Sally. Ours don't look as nice as that. I have given blood, but my body doesn't give it away readily! They only manage to get a small bag from me and I feel quite ill afterwards so its a rare event for me now!

Shira S. said...

Naaah, no matter how I want to donate I just can't. Need more weight! Hehe
Happy Blue Monday Sally and to everyone :)

Blue bus for blue blooded nobility? ;-)
Nice one, Sally. Thanks for hosting.

How sweet of Johnny to keep his camera ready--just for blue! ;)

Jim said...

Funny that our regular public buses use those three colours.

Hi Sally, I have donated blood several times! Once in college I was anemic and did not know it, so an hour later I fainted in the library, but otherwise it is an easy process and so helpful to others! When my hubby had his hip replaced he donated blood ahead of time so they would have his own blood if an emergency occurred. As he was fine the blood went into the bank for others who were in need. I don't think I have ever seen a blood donation bus! We usually have donation areas in our local churches set up by the Red Cross. Have a wonderful Blue Monday and thank you for hosting! Linda

Hi Sally
I'm glad the blood bus is painted blue not red - good choice!! I have a blue bus this week too!
Have a great week

Laura said...

Our high school is holding a blood drive this week… although donors must drive to the the drive themselves. I like your blue blood bus.

bj said...

Sooo...is this a BLUE BLOOD BUS..??:)
Happy Blue Monday....

Ann said...

It certainly does stand out in that gorgeous weather of yours. I can't remember a time when I donated--don't know why really. have a good week.

Great photo. Thanks Johnny and Sally! I used to donate but now I'm unable to. It's such a worthy cause. Happy Blue Monday!

Krzysiek Helak said...

Beautiful vehicle, I'd like to see the front of it :)

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

We both have blue buses!!

Leovi said...

Very nice pictures, beautiful blue bloodmobile!

photodoug said...

A blue bus with a great mission. Thanks for sharing.

My name is Riet said...

Beautiful blue bus Sally. I remember seei9ng a bloodbus when we were in Florida but I can't remember that it was blue. If it was I am sure I would have taken a photo.
Have a nice week

Karen said...

Great blue bus Sally!

JLS Hall said...

Nice shots! We have a bloodmobile that comes around our community every now and then. Not a BLUE one, though! I haven't donated blood recently. The last time I tried, I had just come back from England during the "mad cow" scare, and they said my blood was off limits! That was quite a while ago, now that I think about it. I really should try to donate again. Thanks for reminding me!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Great photo dear Sally! I gave blood once here on a mobile. I hope you had a wonderful C'mas holiday sweet lady and may you be blessed in 2013 with good health, happiness and prosperity. Thank you for hosting all of 2013 and looking forward to the BLUES in 2014!

In the past, I couldn't donate because I was thin and I think because I had such low blood pressure. The weight shouldn't be an issue now. ;-)

Happy New Year, Sally!

I've never seen a bus that blue before and it's for a good cause.
Thanks for letting me join the party.

What a great thing to have! I never heard of a Bloodmobile but it's a great idea!

I rarely blog Monday mornings...so much to tackle, but I'm so happy I had the time to stop by today! Hope your holidays were happy!

XO,
Jane

Joy H said...

I used to give blood but now since I take so many drugs for arthritis and have had mono they will not take it.
Happy Blue Monday Sally!

jeannettestgermain said...

Hubby has, but I haven't:)
Sorry Sally, I choose the wrong pic, but you don't have to change, because people may visit anyway! Hope the New Year is treating you nicely!

Salmagundi said...

I've been anemic all my life, so they always reject my blood; but Bob is a regular donor. Never seen a fancy blue bus around here - blood donation day is always held at a local church. Take care, Sally

Barbara F. said...

Happy New year Sally! I miss all the linky parties, having computer issues. xo

bettyl-NZ said...

I try to give every chance I get but some meds got in the way last time. But I will be there next time!

RobinfromCA said...

I donated blood for the first time last year. I have a terrible fear of needles so it was quite a feat for me. They actually give needlephobes and new people a different color badge so the person taking the blood knows to be gentle and prepare for...well...passing out. :-/
Happy New Year, Sally!

Hi Sally, Busy day today but I can't go to bed without commenting. We just finished watching FL State Play Auburn for the Nat'l Championship. What a game. Fl state won in the last few seconds. Of course we were pulling for Auburn in the SEC. However, both teams played their hearts out and we are happy for the winners.

Yes, I have given blood in the past but it was always such a struggle. My veins are hard to stick and I was finally told to give up donating. Basically any blood tests now is from my hand. Yikes. Bill donated for years but not anymore.
The bloodmobile is a great blue to share.

You really should catch up with the Downton Abbey series. It is a great show and so well written. I know you would love it. I think Johnny would too. This is not a chick flick kind of story. The women in the show are amazing though.

I pray 2014 will be a good year for you and yours.
Love, Jeanne
