Sorry this is off topic folks...  But she said yes!

"She" is Jacquie Dillard, my new fiance. We made proposals to each other last
night. No concrete plans are made yet, other than me moving into her house.

She hopes to learn to ride someday, but it's not a priority for her. She has
a brand new Miyata Standard which was won as a door prize at NUC, but she has
made it clear that she doesn't know if she'll be into it.

I have to learn ASL (American Sign Language). I may not be into it either, but
I'll need it to talk to her friends and relatives, many of whom are deaf. Or
just to know what all of them are saying to each other in front of me!

..Don't worry though, folks, I'll still be around! In Carmichael, CA. Come
and see the "unicycle room" when it's completed!

Staying on top,
John Foss, the Uni-Cyclone

Congratulations.  My wife seems to think she is a great person.  

However there is still time for you to reconsider.  Do you think you will still
be staying on top?

Seriously though, she probably can learn to ride.  My wife is learning.

Hmm, my wife is still resisting ("not in a million years"), and has been
for the last ten years or so.

None the less, congratulations to the happy couple.

Congratulations, hope you both have fun, if ASL is like BSL its not too
hard to learn, just keep practising. Over here in Yorkshire we sign
unicycle like so

raise first finger of right hand (one) then drop it to the left and rotate
hand and finger ( like twidleing your thumb) , this sign started out with
the twidle bit useing both hands extended first finger it got simplified
as people started to use it more, the finger twidle is a variation on the
BSL sign for cycle.

Sign is great for talking through windows and big simple sign is handy on
the muni trail to avoid shouting  left/ right/ waitup / water and the
like.

Best wishes to you both
sarah & paul

    Okay, here's the deal.  She learns to uni, and you
learn sign language.  Done deal... 'nuff said. <g>
