altMy father was left-handed, and so was my mother-in-law.  Hence we were not surprised when Heather turned out to be left-handed, too.  I believe there are left-handers on Jon's side of the family as well, so it is a little surprising that only one of their kids (possibly two, it's too early to tell) joined the lefty club.  Probably they all are somewhat mixed dominant, anyway, as most of our family is.  I, for example, am strongly right-handed—scoring 24% on this left-handedness quiz—but nonetheless am left-eyed, left-eared, and have some other left-handed traits (the arm position questions on the quiz).

Be that all as it may:  To Heather, and Jeremiah, and any reader I'm leaving out (feel free to chime in with a comment), I wish you a


Happy Left Handers Day!


(And a Happy Birthday to my friend for whom this day was special long before there was an official Left Handers Day.

My eye doctor is also right-handed and left-eyed, which he says makes it difficult to aim a gun. (as he discovered during his stint in the military)

Thank you... from your long-time friend whose father is also left-handed.
