SEP 15, 14 .. WHEEL-CHAIRS AND WHEELED-CHAIRS ..

Here is a very short primer on Wheel-Chairs and Wheeled-Chairs.

Until this past month-or-so .. I thought a Wheel-Chair is a Wheel-Chair is a Wheel-Chair. To my surprise .. I found that this is just NOT SO !

Crocodile Dundee would proudly say .. “The next four photos below are of a real-honest-to-goodness WHEEL-CHAIR!”

WHEEL CHAIR 064

You can see the WHEEL is prominent!

WHEEL CHAIR 061

And let-me-tell you all .. this Wheel Chair is heavy and bulky and a challenge to move around .. I can not imagine loading it into the rear of our truck.

WHEEL CHAIR 062

I think you get a pretty-good-idea of a Wheel-Chair.

All of this-being-said .. even though the above Wheel Chair is pretty large and heavy and bulky .. a few weeks ago I went into BINSON’s .. our local hospital supply store to either rent or to purchase a Wheel Chair.  And I had in-mind exactly what you see in the above four photos .. a WHEEL CHAIR!

THANK GOODNESS FOR PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES WHO KNOW-WHAT-THEY-ARE-DOING ..

The young lady asked me why I wanted to rent a Wheel Chair.  I told her that Patti needed a wheel chair to move around in and to watch the WOODWARD DREAM CRUISE.

So she brightened up and said .. “You need a TRANSPORTATION CHAIR!”

And just look below at a TRANSPORTATION CHAIR ..

This little-beauty is EXTREMELY light-weight and nimble!

And WOW .. it sure nests-into-our-truck very nicely.

I never-know-who might be reading along here .. and our TRANSPORTATION CHAIR IS A KEEPER ..

Below is a photo of Patti and our TRANSPORTATION CHAIR .. IT IS REALLY SWELL !

DREAM CRUISE 275

To REALLY see-the-difference between the two .. below are two photographs of Patti and a gentleman side-by-side. They really show you vividly the difference between a real-honest-to-goodness WHEEL CHAIR and a TRANSPORTATION CHAIR ..
