The Lighter Side / Re: International Left Handers Day!
« on: Tuesday 14 August 18 18:15 BST (UK)  »
Interesting Victoria...when I was in the Infants School and stayed school dinners for a time, the teacher sat at the head of the table. Noticing that I was left handed, she sat me next to her and insisted that I "Use my knife and fork in the correct manner" despite me explaining that I was left handed. When I told my Mum about this, she turned up in the dining room one lunch time and approached said teacher and swapped her cutlery round telling her to "Try it this way" to which she replied that "It was foreign to her and she couldn't possibly use her cutlery that way" My Mum told her that was how it felt for me. I was never bothered by her again.

When I was younger, I found it useful when playing table tennis as the opponent often got caught out and I would win, it was the same when playing rounders  ;D

Found this pic of some relatives. They would both be in their early 50s.

My grandmother, in my avatar, was about 40.


Note - not to for restoration :)

I think the couple in your lovely photo look older than the couple in the OP's photo...the lady in the OP's pic has a firm jawline and neither of them appear to have jowls, Just my opinion.

    No left handers in my family, but I noticed when I was at grammar school many years ago that we had 7 left handers in the class, nearly 25%. This was the A stream (she said modestly) so it must be a sign of intelligence. ;D
   

I Was always lead to believe that  Left Handers were creative and artistic and that rings true for myself and my Daughter....intelligent  ::)...not sure about that  ;D

My guess would be late 40s early 50s.

The Lighter Side / International Left Handers Day!
« on: Monday 13 August 18 22:42 BST (UK)  »
I always appreciated this day that is dedicated to those of us who are Left Handers  8) Our son is the only right Hander in our family of four, but he is left footed. We have five Grandchildren and only one of them is left handed. My Grandfather and two Uncles were also left handed. Cack Handed and Golly Handed were the terms used for Left Handers in the North East and I wondered if anyone has an alternative names for other areas.
 So to all fellow Lefties, I hope you have had a nice day  ;)

I know that Gadget is a Left Hander but wondered how many more of us there are on here.

Hi Brian...I would say this is mid-late 1890s.
