If a Picture Paints a Thousand Words...

Shrimp here.

When Cap'n Bill revived us in the Winter of '07-'08, we added a little graphic to the bottom of the Shellfish page that described this web log's state at that time. It remains to this day -- appropriately, we believe.

Go ahead, you can go down there and look. The Shellfish viewer will realize that we didn't really put a whole lot of effort into that graphic.

Someone else has, however, and the pseudonymous lay correspondent "LutherMan" over at ALPB Forum Online has pointed readers to http://i44.tinypic.com/2retekw.jpg -- and we simply can't resist showing it as (what our tiny mind is thinking is) the first graphic we have included in a Shellfish blog entry.

Shrimp out.

Scallop looked up from the floor of the sea, saw the sinking ship and the lifeboats, and heard this chorus ehcoing through the waters:

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.


Shout out to Ed­win S. Uf­ford (1888), who penned these lyrics, inspired by life sav­ing drill he ob­served at Point Al­ler­ton, near Bo­ston, Mass­a­chu­setts. He wrote the words and mu­sic short­ly af­ter re­turn­ing home.

This is not a drill.

Many are drifting and looking for the lifeboats these days. Thanks be to God for all who are throwing out Christ's lifeline, even at the risk of being so close to the sinking ship that they're sucked under as it goes down.

The good ship ELCA...
