I got exactly what I wanted for
my mother's day card! Since
I'm seeing her later in the day
I will just deliver it. It's a little
bulky with the flowers, and besides,
it's nice to hand deliver.
Card, inside and envelope.
Deaf chat was OK. A man I know,
who also stuck by my side at Deaf world,
was there. We call him "French Dave"
to differentiate from another Dave.
I don't remember his last name,
but it is French (obviously).
He's so nice. I stuck close to Pam
and just observed. I thought they
would consider that rude, but they
don't. After some of them had left
I went and sat by him and He and
I chatted in sign, the things that
I knew. Practice is practice, I guess.
I did speak to one of the leaders
of Deaf world for just a moment and
told him I had been there. He understood
me and told me his name and I told him
mine. I also introduced myself to a
young friend of Pam's. Pam interprets for
kids in school and she was one of Pam's
former students. It was interesting.
There was a group of students there
from one of the local high schools
that offer a sign class. These teens'
hands are just flying like crazy. It
was a little intimidating. But they were
also very nice. One of them, a senior,
spoke with me for a few minutes-
not in sign, just speaking. She's so
good. I wish I could take that class! I
wish I was young enough to be in HS
again! Well, maybe not. It wasn't the
best of experiences. I might go
again next month if someone I know
is there. I leave you now with
another picture of Lili as she was
thinking about eating the phone....
