Thank you for playing this week on Sunday Stealing! Please leave a comment or link when you have posted. Feel free to stop back and visit other player’s posts. Have a great week. See you next Sunday!


  1. I never thought of how being left-handed would affect driving ....... gonna be puzzling over that next time I get in my car!

  2. I have lived in a haunted house as well. So I am a believer.
    In New Zealand we drive on the left hand side of the road so the gear stick is on the left as well. I never had any trouble with this but my sister never got the hang of it. We have always put it down to poor hand/foot coordination but the fact that she is right handed probably never helped either.

  3. You are never too old for a nose pierce, dear.

    Happy Sunday!




  4. I always wondered about left handed people driving sticks.

    Join us for Monday Mayhem!

  5. Oh, wow-is that the reason why I cannot drive stick shift? I just thought it was because I was just inept! But perhaps being left-handed presents a reasonable explanation now! Never considered that. lol!

  6. wow a farmers wife how cool. Did you marry your farmer and have lots of kids?

  7. I have never received so many comments from one post, I don't think.
    My not being able to drive a stick is truly because of my left handedness. However there are other things I can't do either. Such as, I can't use a scissors, or a serrated knife because they have the sharp edge on the wrong side.I also have sew on my machine differently than a right handed person.
    In answer to the question about being married to a farmer, no I didn't marry a farmer. But, I do live in the country, in the middle of the woods. And I have 1 child. I am lucky and pleased to have him.
    Thank you all for leaving a comment. I love them all.
