The Lighter Side / Re: International Left Handers Day!
« on: Saturday 18 August 18 01:03 BST (UK)  »

 I'm also caggy handed - In the 1950s my needlework teacher insisted that when I turned up a hem by hand, I had to turn the work upside down, so that the stitches looked the same as the rest of the girls in the class (they were all right-handed).


That reminds me - also from the 1950s - even though my primary school teachers didn't make me use my right hand, they did force me to turn my writing book on my desk to the same angle as the rest of the class. So that when the teacher looked down the rows everything was in perfect symmetry. As a result my writing was very oddly slanted/crabbed on the page and was never corrected until I was in much higher grades. Needless to say I used to get very low marks for penmanship  ::)

Agree 17 Court Wharf Street but think it's U.S.D. rather than U.S.A.   U.S.D. stands for Urban Sanitary District.  Is it a snip from a certificate?  Do you know which town it was?

Yes, right on the U.S.D. I just automatically saw it as U.S.A. without looking carefully.
