Interesting letters Richard. I can recognize one or two of the characters.
Yes, I figured you would, Rita. AND pretty soon you will be able recognize at least a few WHOLE words!
I think I can even guess what one or two of the first ones will be…. but I am keeping that a secret
for now. ha ha! You are making substantial progress. I can hardly wait until sometime in 2014
when we van work together on translating tablets! It sure will be fun! But we can wait, for sure.
Bye for now…. Richard
