That was just the laugh I needed tonight Martha
We never used the id bracelets. In Mom and Dad's home town 4 out of every 5 people in town knew them and where they belonged.
Dad did have a wander guard bracelet on in AL. We had to remove all the knives because he kept trying to cut it off. Anything that could be stuck in it, twisted, used to saw on it or otherwise construed to help him get it off was used. Then I had a brain storm. I took one of the temporary game day face tattoos from his favorite college football team and put it on the face of the bracelet. I told him it was a present from the university for his dedication. He was happy until the decal wore off and he started trying to remove it again. He was SO happy to see that thing go when he moved to the locked unit. Other than the decal, he never did understand it.
