Anyone want to write the Aesop's Fable of the Tortoise and the Hare in  

If so, that would be wonderful...Please write it in the ASL Literature  

ASL Literature Puddle

and be sure to state your name or initials in the Source, since there  
may be several versions...

Then we will try to publish one of the versions, and of course give  
you credit for your writing...

My nephew Andy is learning Photoshop and is creating some  
illustrations for it...

This is the version I would like to use:

The Tortoise and The Hare

There once was a speedy hare who bragged about how fast he could run.  
Tired of hearing him boast, the Tortoise challenged him to a race. All  
the animals in the forest gathered to watch.

Hare ran down the road for a while and then paused to rest. He looked  
back at the Tortoise and cried out, "How do you expect to win this  
race when you are walking along at your slow, slow pace?"

Hare stretched himself out alongside the road and fell asleep,  
thinking, "There is plenty of time to relax."

Tortoise walked and walked. He never stopped until he came to the  
finish line.

The animals who were watching cheered so loudly for Tortoise, they  
woke up Hare.

Hare stretched and yawned and began to run again, but it was too late.  
Tortoise was over the finish line.

After that, Hare always reminded himself, "Don't brag about your  
lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race!"
