    The only thing I do as a lefty is shoot pool, everything else is right handed, used to annoy the hell out of the veterans at the legion where I played snooker, no idea why but they would always be on my ass to "shoot properly". Can't hit the broad side of barn right handed with a pool cue.

      That's what my mom would say about her mother. She had terrible handwriting. Nuns can be mean... I know.

          "I just did it". I wanted to play and fit in so bad, that it never occurred to me to be scared. It probably should have. lol

          I also went to a Catholic grade school.
          I remember when I was in 5th or maybe 6th grade the neighboring Catholic school had to whisk away 2 of their Nuns in the middle of the school year cause they were knocked up.
          Funny, I always wanted to go to that school after that.

              Yes Restrung

              Her is one of Jimi's tricks of fretting the base string with his long thumb. That is all Hendrix.

              Base string on top, can tell by how thick it is.

                    I write and throw both handed, I can do calligraphy right hand. Normally write left handed. Shoot left or right. I can write both hands at the same time. I wipe my butt right handed.
