Hen Scratches

One of my concerns is that the schools are no longer teaching cursive. I have read that learning to write helps one's brain develop fully.
This was my name on a drink last week at Starbucks. It may be a cross between printing and cursive! I do like the way Lou came out.  Looks as though it could be pronounced, "ooh oh ooh."  My dad used to say his handwriting looked like hen scratches but I could read it and it was legible and old style and CURSIVE.


  1. I remember the hours it took on that special paper to form the letters:)

    1. I think we learned something called the Kimmel method. I may have to Google that.

    2. No, it was the Palmer method. Don't know where the word Kimmel came from.
