SignWriting List
July 7, 2003

Dear SW List, and Tini:
I have started a new directory on our web site for PDF documents. Go to:

SignWriting PDF Library

Then click on document 5. That will download a PDF document called 
"Writing by Hand", which shows some of the pen pal letters from the 
1980s... The pen pal I mention below is represented in that 
document...the one with the stick figures....Val ;-)

Yes we do for a long time. Eversince the 9-11. This is how  later the 
stories came about, mainly for the sake of practicing writing and 
reading. But now we have to wait until September when we get together 
again It will be just great!!!! I hope it will materialize. A very good 
practice for everyone!!!! It also shows how important Sign Writing is; 
COMMUNICATING!! Thanks Valerie, Tini.
