I recently read that only nine percent of the population is left-handed. I found it interesting because my grandfather, both my brother and sister, my nephew and my husband are all left-handed.

 Leonardo Da Venci was left-handed too. Are there left-handed members in your family?

My dad, sister and son were all.left-handed.  Dad made a big deal out of it and loved to tease people he met about it.  It was like a bond between them.

Another south paw here. There is no history of left handed people in my family. Guess I broke the mold! LOL!

My husband and I write with our wrists bent over the paper top-down. Do you do that? Also, we both print a lot better than we write cursive.

@occasionalrain  I recently heard that everyone is born right-handed and only the exceptionally gifted overcome it. Smiley Happy

My husband is left handed and is an exceptional musician and very handy. 


 My father, who was born right--handled, had an accident that left his right hand permanently disabled,  went on to become a skilled optician and wrote with his left hand beautifully.

Me!  I had  a hard time learning how to tie my show laces.  And how to cut hair back when I thought I wanted to be a hair stylist.  I always thought I was COOL though because I was the only one.  And then I looked into itt and found all the famous left handed folk,  When I was in 5th grade, the substitute teacher tried tdo change me.  How dare she!!   She was a real witch.
