Subj: RE: [kl] What's a good book to practice rhythms?
Date: Fri, 22 Feb 2002 10:14:45 -0500

Hey, we never told her. It's not like the ladle where you spill it on
yourself because you have to pour it toward you.

The other one that always gets me is her address book. It's spiral and she
writes one the left pages. When I go to look up something, I think it's
blank because I look on the right-hand page.

Where's Germantown? We're originally from Harrisburg and I have a son-in-law
from Hagerstown.

Thanks Ray for your kind remarks!

I don't how your wife was able to play the clarinet, left handed and hit
those keys that are meant for right handedness pinkies, etc. Would like to
heard about that.

Maybe us lefties should revolt against those other products! O:)
