Left-Handed Catch-Up

This past week has been a very busy one for me with dentist appointments, meeting with teachers and trying to get some housework done.  LOL… I just realized a few minutes ago that the reason this week’s Booking Through Thursday post already had 115 comments is that today is FRIDAY… dur.

As a result of my busy week, I forgot to edit the daily “Lefty’s Corner,” so I thought I’d post the hmissing three days here.

For St. Partick’s Day, Tuesday, March 17:

Cecil Adams is generally assumed to be a pseudonym of the unknown author of “The Straight Dope,” a popular question-and-answer column published in The Chicago Reader since 1973.  Whether Adams is the author’s real name is known only by the author and the Chicago Reader.  According to his bio, however, Adams is an accomplished traveler, resides in Chicago, and is left-handed.  He apparently attended Catholic school, Northwestern University, and is of Irish decent.
