ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Q "



Welcome to ABC Wednesday. This weeks letter is " Q ".
Again I was in a QUANDRY
and was wondering what would QUALIFY to define " Q ".
That was QUITE the QUESTION.
Then we drove by this sign.
I knew then I could QUASH my fears for the letter " Q ".
The QUESTION Mark was perfect.
I had no QUALMS about that.



Sunday we had a not so QUICK rain storm.
It rained all day and QUITE hard at times.
I thought it was going to turn the yard into a QUAGMIRE.
When the rain QUENCHED the parched earth
it turned the plants into QUIESCENT QUARTZ or diamonds.



These aren't QUAKING Aspen leaves
but they do QUALIFY as being Fall leaves.
You can't QUARREL with that.
They are the QUINTESSENCE example.



I suggest you don't QUAFF this drink.
Perhaps a QUACK made the cocktail.
It would make you feel QUEASY since it is made of resin.
Keep it on the Q T.
Its a QUASI Martini .
So be QUICK and get in the QUEUE
to see what others have posted for the letter " Q ".
If you have a QUERY go to Mrs. Nesbitt's link on my sidebar.
Just don't QUIBBLE about it.

Beautiful photos followed by such a rich vocabulary as usual! If only I were able to learn all these words by heart, including those from your earlier posts, my English would be excellent. :-)

QUITE funny and strange! What's up with the big QUESTION mark? Do they think there may be no hope, after all? That would make me QUITE sad!

jabblog said...

Very clever - and I wonder how many people are taken in by the fake Martinis?

Gigi Ann said...

Lovely photos, and a cute take on all the Q words you worked into your story. Loved it.

Mara said...

So, were they not sure whether Hope Valley was there and that's why they put the question mark on the sign?

Such a clever post Sue - I haven't heard most of those "q" words in years!

Kay L. Davies said...

Resin quasi-martinis. My kind of martini. No calories, no alcohol. Well, maybe a few calories from the olive.
Excellent post for Q day.

Sandra said...

you did quite well with your quality photos and who knew there were that many words starting with Q? not me.
the leave is beautiful and the sign is perfec. now I am tryingg to figure out what the quesion mark means. is it questional there is hope in the valley, questioanl where the arrow points? the question is what is the question.

Gordon said...

A mammoth effort! So many Q's.

Shammickite said...

I think you must open your dictionary at Q and then just write to post to fit!!!! Graet post.
And I wonder what that Question Mark was pointing to?

Joy said...

Is that feet to the bottom and hope to arrive in one piece. Intriguing sign. Love your B&W photo.
