That's no fun I love a good ear of corn and butter and salt mine are slowly coming in. I cant imagine the farmer had sweet corn growing most of the fields around me are feed corn I'm sure that would not taste very delightful :rare2:. I'm going to have to keep an eye on my wife's elderberry bushes they are getting close to harvest and I'm sure ill be out there for a couple days in the evening picking all those along with the yard work. The tomatoes should be coming in in the next couple weeks ill have to get out the juicer and get canning those with my wife. Seems like a bad year for apples here only a couple I'm no fruit tree expert either though so maybe its just me.
Good morning.
I miss many of the things I can't eat, but when I changed my diet I felt better than I had in 15yrs, all the pain I had lived with was gone. I started hauling drywall when I turned 40, and was hardly sore the day after:muscle:, pretty amazing what I felt like, I have no desire to go back.
We just drive around the countryside for elderberry, it's everywhere over here, I think we still have some in the freezer from last yr. Found out my wife bought peaches and was canning those yesterday, they're doing peach jam later today. We have a few nice tomatoes, and one nice green pepper they picked yesterday, not sure if theres any more of those, I think they ate all the beans right off the plant too.
Yup I'm a lefty too actually I'm more ambidextrous than anything I tend to switch hands often if one tires out. I have never ran a saw left handed before I've seen plenty of people do it and it makes me uncomfortable every time I see it. :chainsaw:
I'm very ambidextrous, I run a saw with both left and right hand, sure helps being able to in tight quarters and can speed up the process sometimes too, I usually run them right handed though.When I shoot pistol I shoot left handed for some reason and I can shoot skeet or trap left or right even though I'm right eye dominant.
If you're running a saw lefty, just be sure you keep your left hand directly behind the brake in case.

Good morning all, 62° at chores time and sunny. May turn cloudy for the better part of the day. Animals are fed and watered, bipeds fed and coffee is flowing. Wifey is not feeling well due to diverticulitis issues. Might be because of the sausage and peppers for dinner. For me it was great but then again I have the stomach of a goat. Ice cream and beer, good, Ice cream, beer and pizza, better. Spent the morning making a Moxon vise version using a pipe clamp and 16" pipe for my woodworking shop. I still need two 1/2" rods to go on each side of the pipe. That will come tomorrow after my Dr. visit to get my test results. I'm sure they're going to find something otherwise there wouldn't have been a rush to get the second stress test. I think the Dr. needs a new Mercedes for his wife and I'm the down payment. We'll know more tomorrow, update to follow. Play safe out there.

Yup I'm the same way I shoot handgun whichever way I need to I'm also right eye dominant. I wonder if it is that when we were growing up, because left handed stuff was either non existent or so expensive that is the reason why we are ambidextrous. My dad is right handed so I was taught to shoot a gun right handed. We had hand me down baseball mitts, golf clubs, and whatever else was right handed so I do all those right handed. I play the guitar right handed. Now when my son was learning to shoot with a bb gun I tried shooting left handed rifle and it actually felt pretty good so I'm wondering if I had had access to left handed equipment when I was younger if I would be more left handed than I am today. I guess it would be interesting to know how common being ambidextrous is today with the cost being pretty much the same, and kids having readily accessible equipment today.

Same here with the mitts and guns. Can't eat with my right hand though I can hold a beer with either. :surprised3: I shot bow RH but gun LH. I'd be remiss if I didn't post this.:)

Funny, I brush my teeth, hold a fork, carrying many heavier things with my left, I write with my right, but it's a mess. When I was in 5th grade I broke my right wrist, using my left to write never caught on.

I'm sure many would probably roll full lefty if there were more options. I don't think I'm a lefty, but many things I don't mind doing left. Funny shooting my pistol the other day I didn't even think about it and I was shooting lefty, I thought that was pretty odd(it certainly was right lol), but I haven't shot pistol in quite a while.

After a hot day I think we can all hold a beer with either :drinking: especially with all the headaches lately.

I end up shooting pistol right handed normally because of all the functions on most of my handguns are set up for right hand minus my 1911 so its easier to send the slide into battery without overhanding the gun. I can do either or though they both feel fine to me.
