    Play On Words

    I enjoy word games and puzzles. Sorting through my aging and scrambled brain some SCI related thoughts came forth:

    1. Do you know or know of a wheelchair user with the name, "Wheeler"?
    2. Do you know or know of a wheelchair user with the name, "Walker"?
    3. Have you met a woman by the name of "Cathy Terr"?

    I know, I know this is silly, but it keeps me fairly sane.

    I remember reading in Readers Digest about a guy busted for DUI named Al Cohol...

    I located two wheelers with last name of Walker. No Wheelers or Cathy Terr, as yet.

    Not Cathy Terr, but I had a patient who used to always tease me saying "cath(y) done" when we finished his catheterization.

    I also worked with a Dr. Foley at one time (although not a urologist) and an orthopedist named Forney. He had this as his car license plate: "4knee". We also had two doctors at one time where I worked named Leonard Bernstein and Wayne Newton. Used to love hearing them paged (often one after the other)!

    Had an active duty military patient one time whose name was Briggs, and that is where we discharged him to (the brig).

    Kid you not. Somewhere in the jurisdiction I worked as a police dispatcher, we had a Casey A. Putz. Twice I ran that name in 13yrs. Giggle every time I tell that one. Plus the assorted Asian names - hung, pi, wong, etc.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Refreshing to see that SCI hs not diminished our fertile brains. My list of names is in the 150 range. In my hometown of Tulsa there were a father and son physicians--Safety R. First and Safety R. First Jr., which could be Safety R.First, The Second. Gets kinda confusing.

    I actually met a woman with one leg whose name was Eliene. I kid you not. almost busted out laughing. I am sure that happens to her a lot, though, so I held it in.
