Hello Philippe and Cherie!
I understand. And I appreciate you telling us, Philippe. Those first  
two signs were written by three Deaf staff members...all from  
different parts of the country...Kathy Say is from Arizona, Bonita  
Ewan was from Minnesota and Alaska I believe, and Butch Zein from  
Texas...they were the three that wrote the signs that are in the  
SignWriter Computer Program dictionary, which were then transferred  
over into the ASL SignPuddle later...and they always discussed each  
sign together and oftentimes found that they had different variations  
of I am not surprised that you may not know every  
variation they chose, but I believe those two variations do exist  
somewhere in the to get your feedback and keep  
informing us...I bet you have some signs unique to Iowa too!
