Don't know how these spelling errors keep popping back into my documents.

I sware I spelchek everytihn even as I type.  Hmmm.  Wonder if that is the

I was hoping to finish the device on the form by just popping in the
graphics and sending it to the submitter so she could print, colour, and
submit it (she did everything else, I promise).  Tyler does not have the
book.  To my knowledge, I have that library in one plastic tote and one file
box and it mostly has boring rules and heraldic history from 19something.

It would be a wonderful thing, Honorable Alasdair, if you could scan that
graphic for this submission.

BTW: With computers being more and more used by Heralds, can anyone think of
a reason why the SCA does not offer a digital version of the "Pictorial
History" for purchase and download?

What a bizarre spelling of my name!  Everybody knows that it's
properly spelled Danielis Lindum!

If #157 is a cross bottony and #251 is a drop spindle, then it's

A lot of heralds have it, especially the longer-serving ones, so maybe
there's one in, say, Tyler?  Or maybe you sometimes get over to
Dallas.  Someone who's going to do armory should have a copy of their
own, HINT HINT, which you should be able to get via
<https://secure.sca.org/cgi-bin/stockclerk/ftpw.html> ("Pictorial
Dictionary", near the bottom ... yow! they've jacked up the price!
Usetabe $6.)

PARKER" at <http://www.heraldsnet.org/saitou/parker/>, a site you
should bookmark, HINT HINT.  The easy way to find it is to go to the
C section (snrk!) and search for "bouton".  Ignore that Frency-type
spelling: we call it a "cross bottony", period.  Parker doesn't seem
to have a drop spindle in the sense of the Pic Dic.

You can try a search for
    "drop spindle"
via Google Image Search <http://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi>.
Plenty of hits, but I'm not sanguine about finding an outline drawing
for heraldry in particular: searching for
    "drop spindle" (heraldry OR heraldic OR herald)
got no hits.

If you really need the drop spindle from the Pic Dic, someone might be
able to scan it for you.  (I have no scanner.)
