You are too kind Valerie!

I will when I need it, my friend. Don't need it right now. Too much other
stuff on my plate for the present.

How about Czech fingerspelling? I like that one--it's easier on my fingers
than ASL--but it is somewhat like British fingerspelling--it's two-handed.

I can certainly send you the layout for your information--but don't put
yourself out for me yet.
