You are welcome, Charles, and thank you for this positive message,
which means a great deal to me...
The Rub symbol shows rubbing the thumbs on the chest in a circle...
However, after looking at the video again for the umpteenth time, I
finally dragged the video clip out of my email reader and onto my
computer desktop, and when I did that, I could view more frames per
second...This surprised me, but that is true, and sure enough, I
could see what you and Anny saw before...namely that the thumbs are
remaining contacting the chest, a little like the ASL sign for
ANIMAL, but then the arms move like an angel, so it is not rubbing in
a circle but instead pressing on the chest as the arms move...I am
sorry to have given you all so many versions of the same sign, but I
really didn't see the pressing thumbs until last message...
See next message about Pressing Contact...
