My JOHNSTON grandfather, born in Donegal, was left-handed.
His son, my dad, wrote with his right hand, played golf left-handed.
When playing cricket he batted right-handed and bowled left-handed.
I write right-handed, but had fun at school many moons ago.
Our teachers punished us by giving us pages of lines to write.
When my right hand tired, I changed over to the left. Can't do it now.
The writing of course was different. My children, and now grandchildren,
all seem to be ambidextrous. Does this say something about our brains?
I followed the celtic toe theme too.
