STRANGE RESTAURANT MANAGER
A deaf person ate at a restaurant. When he
was finished he gave the waiter his credit card.
That credit card had a logo of his favorite
sports team.
The manager came over with that credit card.
He pointed to the credit card, but his lips were
locked.
The deaf person was puzzled. Was the manager
making fun of the sports team logo? Or was he
saying the credit card is no good? Or was he
saying something else?
The deaf person paid the bill but was puzzled
what the manager was trying to say?

This week’s ASL video in youtube
TIME CAPSULES ARE NOT FUNNY
    Many organizations bury their tin cans under the ground and
wait 25 or 50 or 100 years to dig it up. Stuffed inside the tin
cans are pictures, letters, medals, etc, etc.
    The NAD tried it once. The old National Fraternal Society of
the Deaf (NFSD) tried it once.
    The NAD could not remember where the tin can was buried
25 years before. The NFSD pulled out their tin can from the
ground – but pictures were ruined, all black and smelly.
    If a deaf organization wishes to bury its tin can, then
people must be very careful with it.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Pouring liquids is getting difficult for me to handle.
Trying to pour liquid into measuring spoons is hopeless these days!
Someone got me small measuring cups which I think are 1/4th cup size.
I have been using them often to measure liquids.
So I am now measuring by “estimate” with this tiny cup!
Now let’s see what I have to brew next!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
