Hello Ann and Nancy -
Thank you for your messages (see below)..
Regarding the "hip saying" or slang, that Ann asked for...I
personally don't know ASL that well, but maybe someone on the SW List
can help you?...
The saying is: "Hello, Dude!"....or something like that...something
"cool" in ASL that teenagers would use....

>>To Nancy Cole, and Everyone:

>>Dude" but an
>>ASL saying in sign writing. Any chance you could help me?
>> I am also wondering how Giricoccola might be coming along? I am excited

>>very patient. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Ann
