My mother is left handed, as are many of my cousins.  Neither my brother or I are nor my children.  My ex should have been left handed but his father forced him to use his right. Maybe that's what's wrong with him...lol.  My ex SIL is left handed.  Her dad had no success in stifling her.  My BF is also left handed.  I bought my mother a book one Christmas on facts about left handers.  She was thrilled.  Love xx Chris  (Kizzie is soooo cute!)

Love your doggie picture.  My elder brother was left handed but got caned for using his left hand.  He is now ambidextrous.  Becky is left-handed and Nathan also favours his left although he can use both.

Your poor little angel Kizzie looks tired out!   I hope those 'Teddies haven't had her running about fetching and carrying for them?  Bless her!

I am ambidextrous.  I used to get quite confused when I was younger but I am more set in my ways now.  I write right handed but deal  and shuffle cards with my left.  I just fumble if I try it with my right hand.

Hello Jan,  It looks like your up there with the other left-handed geniuses...lol!  There`s none in my family that I know of, though Roman favours his left at the moment.  Kizzie looks a cute little thing, give her a hug from me. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

My three best friends are lefty's and also have very high IQ.  Maybe there is something to it.

I'm left handed. I mean I really do most everything with my left hand. I remember in school when I was younger they used to tell my mom. My handwriting was small and messy. BTW it still is. LOL. I had trouble cutting in school and the teachers would often say I should try to use my right hand. I can't and I didn't.

My Sam is left-handed! Laine xx

madcobug said...

There sure are a lot of left handed ones in your family. My son is left handed in writing but does many things right handed or can use either hand doing. I have no idea where this came from but one of his cousins on his dad's side is left handed also so it must have come from that side of the family. Helen

marainey1 said...

Awwww, I never noticed your little puppy on the beach with the Teddies.  How sweet.  You certainly have good company being a left handed person,  must be a little of the genius in you for sure.  My husband was left handed and so far only one of my grand'babes has a tendancy to use his left hand more...to young to tell yet.  None of my children inherited that trait, but they got most of their father's other traits.  All were flat-footed.  Hope your enjoying that nice weather.  It is now snowing here again !  'On Ya' - ma

gehi6 said...

I am left handed but somewhat ambidextrous as my grandmother was who learned to write with her right hand.  She was a very fast quilter using both hands.  But my sister LaRae and I are the only two people in our family who are left handed, which includes all the grandchildren of five daughters and their kids.  I find that odd. My sister LaRae was a very talented artist.  I think lefties have to be rebellious to resist all those who would turn them into right handers.  Gerry

mariealicejoan said...

I was left handed when I started school, but a very bad burn on the palm of my hand forced me to be right handed so I do write with my right hand, but do many other things with my left.  Out of my five children ... I have four that are left handed!  Love Kizzie on the beach with the two teddies!
Enjoy your Sunday!

wobblymoo said...

Fascinating, could do with that calendar myself, I'm not left handed but Ryan is.

jaymact1 said...

Your friend is clever with her graphics and I put my right hand up I did not see Kizzy beside the teddies. Miss Kizy was that not a name from ROOTS.  Love Joan.

Hi Jan - i noticed  Mizz Kizzy, think i mentioned that !!   oh, and i am left handed too.... but only when i eat ?!
Luv Jaynee xx

Raising my right hand here, Jan.  Kizzie looks cute both on the beach and on her pillow.

frdbrow7 said...

Aaww - Kizzie looks so cute on the beach.  I do believe that left handed people are supposed to be artistic.  A brother and sister are both left handed, my sister could draw beautifully and my brother had the temperament of Van Gogh ;-)  I'm sure I read that King George VI stutter began because he was forced to become right handed.

Love your tag Jan Kizze is such a little doll  ~ and I enjoyed reading the interesting facts about left handed people ~ there are some really Famous Lefties ~ Sam one of my Grandchildren is left handed he always tells us they are the most intelligent people ~ Look forward to reading some more facts from your calendar ~ Ally x

Hi there, thank you for the information about left handed people.

Left handed people are often refered to as Cuddy Wifters.  

My father was left handed, I am left handed and so is my son.

I have always wanted to take up painting and when I retired, early, about five years ago, I decided to join art classes and, at long last, I am just begining to produce some half decent work.

Flowers, trees and birds seem to be my main stay but portraits and landscapes also feature in my work.

I am always critical of my own work and I have to say that there are people in my art class that are far advanced than I am but I seem to be getting better all the time.

The one thing about art is that it is not one of those things producing competition between artists and I like that.

By for now,

John.

You are a true south paw and there's nothing wrong with that!  Thanks for the interesting facts.  I didn't know a single one of them!

Love,

Very interesting facts about left handed people. What a wonder having so many of you in the same household. Give Kizzy an extra little hug from me. ((Hugs)) Indigo

kaydeejay5449 said...

I will pass these left-handed goodies onto my husband and my best friend, Dianne.  They are left handed.  Dianne's husband is left handed, too, so when the four of us were on our cruise, I was the only 'righty' at our table.  It felt strange.  I know how you 'lefties' feel.  
Hugs,  Kathy

erarein63 said...

Interesting facts on lefties.  My Dad was a leftie and forced to change over to right-handed when at school.  We have lefties in my family like my sister and my darling daughter, Hannah.  All brillant.  Hope you had a great weekend.  De ;)

blpltt said...

I am an ambidextrous ironer !  Only because my left-handed mother always set the board up that way.  Missed Kizzie the first time.  Bunny xx

Oh dear, I'm a lowly right hander. My youngest son is left handed and he's a cheeky little monkey! Not that I'm suggesting you are of course Jan! Kizzie is lovely.

Interesting stuff! Just fancy kids used to be forced to write with their left hand. Most dyslexics are left handed too. The dominant side of the brain being the left! Love Conniex

beckiepainton said...

I watched a documentry and it said that if you were born left handed you were more than likely a twin that was absorbed back into the mothers body, mark is left handed also, 2 Marks, no way!!BVeckie.xx

sarajanesmiles said...

Aww, it's your Kizzy :o)

Chuckling at your testy alerts, that's a lovely pic of Kizzie in them by the way :o)

Love the photo of Kizzie,  My sister in law and nephew are left handed, and I can remember a very strict bully of a teacher at school trying to make a pupil write with her right hand instead of her left, and then telling her of for making a mess of her book, everyone hated this teacher and was so pleased when she left,
love Lynne xx
