The torrid threesome meets Karen and Brad at the assembly area. Brad and Beas, two "B's" in a pod, exchange their secret handshake based upon the US Secret Society of Mustached Musclemen.
Meanwhile, the Scottsdale HealthSouth clan gathers at the facility entranceway hoping to catch a glimpse of the riders. Joe approaches a very young looking student wearing a yellow shirt, waiting for the school bus to take him to school. Joe is aghast when he learns that Sir Young Richard is actually the facility administrator. Joe apologizes hoping that Richard understands that Joe's associates are very young but look very old.
Finally, right on schedule, the riders approach on 96th Street. Karen and Brad pull ahead of the pack, hoping to win the approval of the crowd.
But in the spirit of friendly competitiveness, Abel edges Karen off the road and into a ditch, while Brad, unfortunately runs over some thumb tacks which someone carelessly left on the road. Beas want to know why the kid in the yellow shirt is not in school.
Mary Manross, our Mayor of Scottsdale, returns to give words of support and encouragement despite the rumor that AJ Johnson is returning. It is with great admiration and appreciation that we thank the Mayor for coming to HealthSouth and spending the time with us and for her kind remarks. We also understand that she is at HealthSouth investigating the truancy of a kid, wearing a yellow shirt, and giving orders to the staff.
Here, Ma and Pa Kettle (Jerry and Joy) of the United States Navy, accompanied by Abel, one of their three sons (Ready, Abel, and Willing) are entranced by the entrance of Beas. Joy is shown here holding Jerry's pacemaker, which keeps falling out of this chest pocket.
Beas is shown here picking numbers for Bingo
As a coach, Beas gives his formula for success.
Do unto others before they can do unto you.
Put your best foot forward and your foot will serve you well.
One good foot deserves another.
And, in a quote by Yogi Berra, "It aint over till its over."
Jerry continues his talk.
And contnues his talk.
And continues his talk
We are visited by James Johnson, a clinical and Sports nutritionist, who was once a Greco wrestling olympiad... and coached by Beas almost thirty years ago.
With a little ceremony, and a viewing of our 50 minute DVD of Amputees Across America, we spent the rest of the time eating ice cream, cake and popcorn.
Our thanks to Richard Schultz, the youngest looking CEO in the HealthSouth system, Karen Christiana, DMO, and to the wonderful staff and patients at HealthSouth Scottsdale Rehab Hospital. You made us feel welcome and your support went far beyond all expectations. Thanks again for all that you do and for all the lives that you touch.
