Where in *HECK* is Pat Graybill? (yes it's Graybill, not Greybill) It's
been quite a bit of time since I last saw him, I worked with him back at
NTID, and I was in a couple performances he directed, as well as worked on
props and stage items for his performances. There were a few other
directors at NTID that I worked with as well.
Pat was also one to do all sorts of rather interesting things with ASL, and
he's done a few of those things with me. If someone, maybe me, shows him
some signwriting examples, then his well-known renditions of some famous
songs in ASL, fingerspelling, and other rather odd humorous ways could be
sent to paper, in signwriting.
I'm heading back out there in mid-July for the reunion, and some possible
job searches out in the area.
Sez who that a deaf person can't have fun on the net? No ears required!
