SignWriting List
May 24, 2000

Hello Everyone, and welcome Nancy!

You did a great job posting to the you succeeded! And thank
you for sharing your experiences with us. I have been meaning to
write to you. This is wonderful news, that SignWriting is beneficial
for you....and that is great that your boss is interested - I am glad
to know that.

And thank you, Nancy, for sending in your SignWriting membership. Of
course we all look forward to more collaboration together. I was
thinking that maybe we could hold a special workshop here in my home
for teachers from New Mexico, now that there are four of you....three
from Albuquerque, and one from Las Cruces. So write again if you
would like that - maybe in the middle of the summer, before school
starts again in August?

And I am still working on your Las Cruces web page, and I am not
finished....I will tell you when it is ready ;-)

And thanks, everyone, for all of your other messages. Great to hear from you.

Yesterday, I had a funny day...I was very much in my own thoughts,
and I walked into my "workroom" - a large room with lots of cardboard
boxes, two computers, and a table where I package people's
SignWriting orders. It was a good thing I walked into the room,
because to my amazement, there was a flood of water streaming down
the wall from upstairs. Apparently a water pipe burst upstairs and
the water was flooding, without my realizing it. So I had pots
catching the water, and "water men" running around the house "fixing
it", and I am now left with life back to normal, except for a
water-stained ceiling and wall! Plus a few "un-done" projects waiting
for my attention....

But I have no problems, only annoyances, so I am very lucky indeed!

More soon -

Val ;-)
