Subject: RE: Help with playing 'Chinese Jump Rope'
Uly, Thanks for responding!

I appreciate reading that additional information, and am particularly interested in your comment that "when we moved here I was surprised to hear people jumping rope with rhymes - I thought that was something you did in books, not real life!" That's interesting because I thought that singing rhymes was an integral part of jumping rope and am sorry to find that there's much less chanting while jumping rope nowadays-at least where I live (in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania).

BTW, I like the conversational style of your posts.
