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...

Val ;-)
