    The lefty gene definitely came from my side, and I fear possibly the missing whistle as well as I can barely squeak one out. You being an introvert must be only 50% of the time because you truly shine when you have an audience of students or friends. The momont you said you wanted to own a business someday I knew you would because you set your mind to something and make it happen!

    LOLOL… I’m with your kids… I find that very funny that you can’t whistle. My brother can’t do it either, and that has provided me with no end of amusement 🙂 Watching someone who can’t whistle, actually TRY to whistle is one of the funniest things I have ever seen 🙂 🙂 🙂 Brings back terrifically funny memories of my brother. Thanks 🙂
