What are the odds of me being a lefty?

Left handedness is a recessive gene. Both my parents are rightys and I'm a lefty. I have one lefty grandfather on my moms side. What are the odds of this happening? Did I win the genetic lottery and became a lefty against the odds? I don't know too much about genetics but I would think that a recessive gene that skips a generation and only comes from one grandparent would be quite rare.

    I'm talking more about genetics than culture.
