It's ok Herb. I probably should have known what it was but didn't want to call it 'that medical symbol thing'...

In reality the medical simbol is the Rod of Asclepius not the Caduceus.

The confusion starts with the use of Caduceus and Rod of Asclepius. The Caduceus is a symbol of Hermes or Mercury in Greek and Roman mythology. Caduceus symbol is identified with thieves, merchants, and messengers, and Mercury is said to be a patron of thieves and outlaws, not a desirable protector of physicians.[8] The symbol originated when Mercury once attempted to stop a fight between two snakes by throwing his rod at them, whereupon they twined themselves around the rod, and the symbol was born.[2,8,9] The Rod of Asclepius belongs to Aesculapius, who was the revered Greek God of healing.

Thanks! Just gave it to him. He is the manager at a clinic that has a drive-through service and was the first in our area to put that into place. The good thing about that is I can drive up, tell him it's in the back seat, and drive off -

Thanks for the explanation of the symbol, Joe. I'll stick to woodworking and leave the medical stuff to you pros and the great job y'all do!
