Righteousness as ordained by God. Lefties are, after all, the spawn of Satan.

Karen said...

Aha! Trolling for sinistrality.

TLP said...

Dexterous folks are not in their right minds. ;P

Dexter -- neighborhood bully from my child

-ous -- suffix meaning full of

The day came when my friends and were so dexterous, so we took the young bully out behind the school house and taught him wisdom.

Nessa, as a leftie I am deeply offended and shall ask the dark lord to punish you for your remark
:p


As for dextrality, does it really matter which side picks which pocket?

Nessa said...

Logo: Was that sting I felt on my tush a gift from you?

Dextrality: I always think I'm right until most of the time I'm proven wrong LOL

Dusty Doggy always raised his left hind leg when he peed.

TLP said...

Good old Dusty.

actonbell said...

Oh, my, is it already Friday?
And Logo, TLP's right, you're one of the few people in your right mind.

It's goddam three o'clock in the AM and the dang dawg had to go PEE!

Because the bulldog is afraid of the creatures of the night (owls, raccoons, etc., etc.) in the backyard she ran way slipping through a hole in the neighbor's fence.

Meanwhile, she loves riding in the car and sticking her head out the window. I drove around the block at @15 mph. until she pounced gloriously into the passenger's seat.

After that we went home.

TLP said...

Okaaaaayyyy Karen! Now see, if you lived in PA instead of Florida, the dog would not have been able to run off...the snow is higher than a bulldog's head.

Doug said...

Jim, I'd rather be upside down in a trash barrel than to do right. Just not my style.

Nessa, here I had no idea you were a theologian.

Nice vocabulary, Karen!

Nor I, TLP.

Quilly, I hope he burped water after.

You bet it matters, Logo. Otherwise you don't know which side to keep the scorpion.

Nessa, was their laughing?

Thom, you just have to believe.

RIP, Dusty. Suddenly I'm curious whether that makes a dog left- or right-footed.

You bet, TLP.

Actonbell, I'm not sure that bodes well.

Your dextrality, Coop? You might have left it at the bar.

Poor Karen. Not even my dogs wanted to go out in the weather we're having. They seem to have forgotten Georgia completely.

TLP, the mud is that deep in my yard.

The neutrality of the Right on any issue not yet raised for discussion. The skill of an elephant about to pounce.

Alana said...

right angles...definitely a squares best friend...

Doug said...

Weirsdo, that's a funny image.

And her composition, Alana, you bet.
