Hi Charles,

 

this „pulling your ear“ sign for birthday is interesting.

 

Well – you know that I know about your name sign – smile – I canot find that on the word document you sent – perhaps a different seize in format???

 

I am talking about the sign following  the “with” sign – see attached screenshot – have a look at the two five-hands – smile

 

Best

 

Stefan

The "pulling your ear" sign is from an old Pennsylvania Dutch sign of pulling your ears on your birthday. I learned it years ago at Gallaudet and thought some people might want to discuss it. It's in the dictionary already, I didn't put it there.

The last sign in the last column is my name sign. It means crazy with a C. That's me.

Hi Charles – what an interesting sign for „birthday“ pulling the ear downwards twice –

 

Which signlanguage is this taken from?

 

You may want to mirror each five-hand in the last sign  - smile 

 

Does it mean “more”?

 

 

All best Stefan

Hello Tini!

Yes, time certainly does fly! Who would have thought, back in Copenhagen in a dance studio in the 1970's when we first met, that you and I would be communicating by email so many years later - I am now age 62 …imagine that…and now you use SignWriting as well as DanceWriting...

 

Thank you for your hugs - hugs back!

 

Val ;-)
