I worked on it as well during my lunch hour today. I did have one 
question on page 5 of the PDF, and the second sign down. For the index 
handshape there, I don't recall seeing that in your list of handwriting 
shapes that you taught in this lesson. I wondered if we should 
substitute a different sign or if you planned to show that one but 
forgot. (I understand how that can happen.)

Just wondering. Otherwise, very helpful lesson.  Just one thought. I 
still would encourage us to standardize as much as possible, so I 
wondered if we should have some discussion about the variations? While 
we will have our minor differences in writing, hopefully, having 
standardization where possible will help us be able to read each 
other's handwriting better. :)  (Perhaps our Deaf doctors' handwriting 
will be easier to read than their peers ;-) ... a little handwriting 
joke ...  )
