Many former ISD (IL) used it too. Like they say, stuff spreads like wild fire in deaf world. I never asked this one person where he got it from, now I know.

Just joking! Thanks for the explanation, its a cool one!

Lately I have been using "ABC" to my 8 year old son. He often get upset over little things. I would sign "ABC" and he would know to be cool instead of getting upset. Thanks to you where I got the idea from. smile

Thank you for sharing with viewers that I shared with you recently. ABC is the best solution for everything that can give the people the sense of security and peace. It shows how a good person you are and you are able to relate with people by using ABC often as you can.

Your excellent reinforcements by using ABC ecourage people to feel relax and comfortable. It makes me be aware that I need to say cool at all times no matter what happens.

Smile, Debbie

Cool anecdote, ABC!

For you, always be cool!

For me, always be careful! (especially with the matchbook) Ha!

I guess it's about being a female?!? :o

By the way, always bring cash!

I am very interested in your comments and please keep it up. Excuse me, I just wonder if you tried to sell ABC card outside of Wal-Mart, huh? Just Kidding! I always make fun of people getting money from ABC cards. I notice that you always sign "Champ" That's my favorite. I always love to sign "Champ" too. I am very strong in ASL.

Hello ABC

I am gonna labeling you as ABC from now on and it is a cool name. ABC is one of the powerful tools that help giving people the sense of security and peace. Keep it up.. Do not let it fade away.

It would be good idea to put ABC on your tombstone, license plate and etcc..What if you RV or car are stolen and everyone will know who belong to you. You are safe to have them back because of your name. ABC saves you from everything.... What do you think?

Smile, Debbie

Narbor said...
