I come from a long line of leftys. My father and mother, my wife Judy
and three of our four children are left-handed. Judy is a graphic
artist, and our son, Shaun took a degree in graphic desing. All of us
love crafty things. I golf and shoot a rifle right handed, but shoot
pistols either way and a bow left-handed. Of course I write with the
left hand mostly. several of our children are ambidextrous. They say
that those of us who are left-handed recover speech more quickly after a
stroke because we do so many things with either hand. On the other
hand, I won't eat Vegemite with either hand. <G>
I'm only 6' tall, so I fit in a mini without a sunroof. Don't worry
about this one, though. It's lots bigger inside than out.
