My immediate family is slightly more than half left-handed-- of the five of us, three of us are, and I suspect Jesse of being left pawed. And today I learned that one of our daughters-in-law is left handed! Alas, of the nine grandchildren, only Jacob is a lefty as far as I know. So the score stands five to seven, with disturbing evidence that Abby is not left-handed. So in honor of all of us who use the preferred and esteemed left hand, here are drawings of: Jesse's left front paw, my left foot, my left hand (badly drawn by my right hand)---
and then three drawings from old photographs: David's five-year-old left hand, Erik's three-month-old left hand, and my eleven year old left hand sporting a garnet ring while playing the role of a praying angel in a family xmas pageant.
