Hello Philippe and Cherie and Everyone!
Your diagram came in fine now, so thank you for that. And your  
writing is very interesting. You used the Surface Symbols to show  
that you were touching the TOP OF something...and because I know the  
sign (I think ;-) I figured you meant on top of the left arm...The  
Surface Symbols are abstract and we only use them when we absolutely  
have to, when a sign is hard to read without them...Normally we would  
write a line for the left arm, which is read faster by I  
went into SignPuddle and cleaned up McDonalds a little, by renaming  
all the versions people had entered so that all  4 list when you  
search for them...See are the four in SignPuddle  
right now...mine put a C hand in the middle, but you have a Fist?  
smile....what is correct? smile... the fist necessary on the left arm? yours is number 3 in  
the list attached... smile...if you put no hand at the end of an arm  
line, it just means a neutral or relaxed hand...
