Why not consider learning braille?
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#809417)
Why not indeed!
I want to learn sign-language too.
says Tiffanee on May 15th 17 (#2567395)
I knew it :)
You are not the kind of person who would say dismissively "Why? I'm not blind."
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567407)
I like to learn new things. I am currently learning Spanish.
says Tiffanee on May 15th 17 (#2567428)
You saw Sofia's Eurovision post? If you didn't already watch the winning song do so now. Portuguese is a musical language.
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567436)
I taught sign for twenty seven years. I still have trouble not using my hands when I'm out and about! When I wrote my books the school
I worked with had them made into Braille so the blind kids could enjoy them too. I tried to learn Braille then, however it was tough.

Too many nipples to concentrate? Just kidding. Sign language might be possible for me, but I think braille is beyond my grasp.

As with most things, it would depend on if women found it attractive enough to make it worth the effort. I'll need to do some research. Buy a book, go sit in a park and see what kind of action I get before really making a commitment. : )

Take a puppy with you.
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567503)
He's a handsome fella :)
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567747)
That's Oak. My BFFF and an amazing little spoon. : )
says semple on May 16th 17 (#2567770)
Hiya Oak... slowly offering my right hand for a sniff.
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567774)
Haha! Nah, he's a sweetie. : )
says semple on May 16th 17 (#2567814)
I learned long ago when greeting a dog never to look them in the eye and especially not while smiling broadly with your teeth exposed. Both are threatening gestures... a sniff of the hand will tell them what they want to know.
But you knew all that...
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567820)
Absolutely. My job includes meeting a lot of pets.
But Oak pissed on me the first time we met... : )
says semple on May 16th 17 (#2567842)
Awww... was his **** on you a sign of love at first sight? If so thenI just learned something and I thank you :)
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567851)
Something like that. : ) But he's super friendly. Every time he meets someone new he nearly wags his tail off.
says semple on May 16th 17 (#2568072)
It depends where your hand has been😊

I hear they are coming out in a clothing line covered in Braille.
says Sukiesnow on May 15th 17 (#2567502)
Get in touch with me when they do.
says ChuckTom on May 15th 17 (#2567506)
Is there a men's underwear line?
says semple on May 16th 17 (#2567768)
says Sukiesnow on May 21st 17 (#2572753)
All the guys will want to read it. LOL
says BarbOBarr on May 19th 17 (#2571261)
I might look into it when I have more free time. I've thought about it before. I learned a little bit of sign language when my daughter was young ... it was an additional tool to get her communicating (and several of her classmates were hearing impaired).
says JanHaskell on May 15th 17 (#2567611)
My son was born deaf. It was fate that I was already certified and teaching at the time, it made it so easy for him to learn from me. It's a great language😊
says BarbOBarr on May 19th 17 (#2571328)
You two were both blessed with a perfect match!
says JanHaskell on May 19th 17 (#2571397)
I would have no use for it at all.
says StarzAbove on May 15th 17 (#2567648)
I recall reading about some blind skiers who were outfitted with visual aid devices that allowed them to see what they were doing. More than one preferred being sightless.~~~~~~~~ I wonder how different an experience it would be if you could read by touch rather than read by sight. Would reading a favorite novel by braille enhance or detract or be of no difference?
says ChuckTom on May 16th 17 (#2567752)
My fingers arent as sensative as they would need to be, anymore.
I used to know the alphabet in sign, but that was ages ago.
Ive never tried any language other than english. I get by....
says Carla on May 16th 17 (#2567708)
I started to a very long time ago and stopped due to hours I worked.
Sydney can do sign language. She learned in order to communicate with a friend of hers. I know a few words but not much.
says Lil_Princess on May 16th 17 (#2567815)
I've always wanted to learn a different language but I've been put off the idea as I'd have nobody around that I could practice with. But Braille I could use and it would be a good skill.
I did touchtyping at high school when it was compulsory for girls but not boys and it was the most useful thing I've ever learned.
says OzSurfer on May 17th 17 (#2569014)
I took touch typing, too... it sure came in handy knowing how to type that way when transcribing Morse code at 16 to 20 words a minute.
says ChuckTom on May 17th 17 (#2569209)
Ooh cool! I had to learn morse code in the army. I never used or practiced it, it was just mandatory back then. It was interesting I thought although I got bored with it quickly
says OzSurfer on May 17th 17 (#2569660)
Yup. Listening to rapid-fire dah dit dah dah all day can drive a body mad.

Are they rubbing toilet paper?
says Jaxxi on Jun 20th 17 (#2594236)
It kind of looks like it.
