Hello Stefan and friends,
I have a few questions re: your attachment. I have not been able to transfer
it into the DOS program so I have to try to make myself clear this way.
I will translate what you have written in SW.
Line 1-" Hello from Sign name..." Now under the sign name you wrote an arm
line horizontal.
Line 2-" I try a little sign writing"
Line 3- "Here???" (next)????........There is a saying here" Cross my heart
and hope to die"
            But I am sure that is not it ..There is that line underneath, is
that a sign name?" sign
Line 4- "Scorpion. Future picture show"
Line 5- "L."" signer, but all"
Line 6- "Sign writing for R." School????(With the L. hand)" signer"
Line 7- "bye "...????? (And there is that line again) "Stefan."

I may not be correct in the translation, but I might be close.
Note: The first two signs of scorpion are very clear to me. #1 touches the
centre of the head with the thumb and the #2 with the hand.
II hope you can make sense out of this. L.I.F.E.
