Hi Francis -
Thanks for the great messages and I am happy to know you are learning
SignWriting has been used in some strange places in the past (smile). One
person wrote to tell me that they practiced SignWriting while hiking up the
Himilayan Mountains...and there are several other unusual places
SignWriting has been used...but SignWriting in the morgue! That one takes
the cake, Francis!!
PS. For those on the SignWriting List wondering what this all about (grin),
Francis works in the morgue :-)
