Hello Stuart and Everyone!
Success. This is the third time that Stuart has tried to post a
message to the SW List and it bounced twice. We learned that the word
HELP in the subject line, can confuse the software that runs the
List...apparently the word Help is used to get certain commands for
other things...so when Stuart changed the name of the subjec, taking
the word Help away from the title, it posted immediately ;-)

Now to your question, Stuart...

Hmmmm....This is a new sign for me...This is what you wrote:

1. The two hands touch palm to palm pointing forward, parallel to the
2. They separate and move in a curve side and forward.
3. They finish touching tip to tip, still parallel to the floor...at
a diagonal to each other

Is that what you wanted? how does that look like a wallet?

Val ;-)
