Mr. Wool: "I'm doing much better. I don't need the walker any more, and am just using a cane."

Dr. Grumpy: "It's a nice cane, too. I like the carved handle."

Mr. Wool: "Thank you. It used to be my grandfather's. It has a big knife hidden in it..." (whips off handle) "that he used for slaughtering sheep."

It's good to be prepared to take care of any unsuspecting sheep. You never know when you will see one in need of slaughter.

Careful about discussing payment.

Man you have the best group of patients in the world. Was that guy with the wild animals in Ohio one of yours ? Just wondering.

It isn't a big scary weapon, it's an heirloom.

My mama just got a knee replacement. I now feel the need to go get her a cane with a knife hidden in it.

I want one for my Mom, Too. She's a retired RN, so she knows just where to stick that thing! (Watch all the MDs reading go pale. They are hoping she does not walk into their offices. They know why.)

Tell him not to bring that to the airport! The security will never understand. :)

That's awesome, I'm totally getting on of those if I ever need a cane! Or maybe I'll just get one anyway... :)

I feel sorry for the mugger that meets that fella in a dark alley

I just knew this was MR Wool and not Ms or Mrs Wool! My late father in law had one of these - always made me a bit nervous, as he had a nasty streak and the disinhibition of early dementia. We were never quite sure if he might use it - on himself or his wife! Moving to a rolling walker let us 'hide' his favorite cane.

cool! - an "artisanal" cane!

um...."SURPRISE!" That was just plain awesome. You had me laughing out loud on that one.

I have one of those canes! They are popular souvenirs in Kenya. A native friend of ours taught my brother that the way to use it is to try to hit someone with it. Their natural impulse will be to grab it to protect themselves with it, which then allows you to pull the sword away from the sheath! Pretty clever, huh?

During my first trip to Kenya, when I was 15 and my brother 13, he came back with FIVE different weapons! I came back with a shield!

Awesome. When I am an old lady I want to be just like this.
