It’s time for Maria to take another letter, as Tuesday is upon us again. That’s the day The Nest brushes up on the darker side of the alphabet with my Photography A to Z challenge I’ve been torturing myself with this year. And no doubt, this is one of the editions you have so been waiting for, as I finally have to tackle a letter that Noah Webster must’ve snuck into the ABC’s while he was drunk on phonics…. the letter Q! You know, that tile in Scrabble that is only useful for watching your little brother choke to death on unless you happen to draw one of the four U’s with it. Yeah, this is gonna be a blast. While I go load up some cheat codes, why don’t you take another look at the two simple rules for this contest. Brush up, because there will be a quiz later on…
- Only photos I took myself will be used.
- All photos used will have been taken without any thought given to this challenge.
Sigh…… let’s see how Qute and Qreative I can get with this….
Lovely squirrel QUILT made by one of my friends on the message board a few years ago. This was actually her second attempt to send it to me…. the first one got lost in the mail, never to be seen again.
My 52 ounce mug from QUIKTRIP, which has been refilled with thousands of fountain sodas over the years, which have added hundreds of pounds to my frame….
QUICKEN LOANS ARENA in Cleveland, Ohio… home to the NBA Cavaliers and probably the World Series of Cornholing. One of the worst corporate named sports venues out there…
I already used this photo for my K post. And now, equal time for the QUEEN!
Detroit Tigers left fielder QUINTIN BERRY throws a ball to some fans in the stands. Q didn’t have much of a career, so it was merely a case of good timing in my 2012 Detroit trip that he wound up in my archive…
QUIET RIOT‘s epic 1983 hit “Cum On Feel The Noize” playing on the satellite radio in my Mom’s truck. I always knew this waste of pixels would come in handy some day…. and now I think I need to stash it for X as well.
This squirrel is so QUICK that it jumped into another dimension!
This is what they call a trick QUESTION. They’ve both done it….
Muddy QUAGMIRE my backyard was turned into as collateral damage in the city’s ditch cleaning effort seven years ago.
And if you made it through this post that skirted the borders of what can legally be called Q words, then my merry gang of QUEER little critters would like to give a big cheer for you! I’m pretty sure they lock people up for posting photos like this… so I better QUIT while I’m ahead.
Come back next Tuesday and we’ll talk like a pirate with the letter RRRRRRRR…
The photo of your little critters is nice, they are all together withtout any Quarrel. This Q is easy for us, no words with Q, a question is kysymys.
They save the quarrels for my little plays, which I really need to start putting together again. Finnish is smart not to have a stupid letter like Q!
Do you know, we don’t have words with C, B, F, X or Z, we use them in foreign words and names. But we have something you don’t, like ä and ö.
you found a lot q-things… thanks for all that q-tips I can use for scrabble… q is always questionable LOL
Yeah, throw that Q letter away along with the used Q Tips!
Q’s without U’s are – well – like a third arm……….no – wait – a third arm would come in handy. Anyway, love the table full of quirky critters – I think that will definitely give me a nightmare tonight – all those EYES!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEK!
You should try typing with all of them staring a hole in your back! It’s enough to send a QUIVER down your spine….
LOL! Good job with the Qs. What are you going to do when ya hit Z?? Are you going to start all over again, or just find a new Tuesday thang?? 😉
Nah, just gonna go back to my normal Picture Day Wednesday posts I’ve pretty much been ignoring since this started. Unless someone invents some more letters between now and September…
We can help out – Germany knows letters like Ä, Ö, Ü and ß .. That is another month sorted then 😛
Way to go my evil friend . I see some big time trouble in that last picture for sure. You might want to take cover. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
If Bashful ever drops by again, I’ve got a new friend for him! I found one of those decorated Facebook rocks that has apparently become a thing…. it’s purple with red dots! If I remember, I’ll show it off next week for R…
Squeals with piggy excitement. You know my Bashful. He’s always up for a good time. You never know when he might be back in your neck of the woods. XOXO – Bacon
I loved your stories with Bashful! I am game for a follow up.
I’m in quite a quandry about what quip I should leave here, but will quickly jot this hoping that you won’t quibble over its quality.
Quantity is sometimes better than quality when it comes to Q words, so quell your qualms and know that I enjoyed your quotation…
That squirrel quilt is very nice, warm and comfy… um, I mean, it looks very nice, I definitely don’t have the original one… um.
LOL! You know what came in the same box as the quilt? Snuggle Bear! It’s good to see his evil twin has been getting along with you all these years and that he hasn’t offed you yet!
There is however an ongoing investigation into the mysterious disappearance of one of the Andrex stuffed puppies…
You need a Berenstein brother bear from 1984. My daughter paid pennies for it at the thrift store last week. He’s vintage…ooooo.
Is his name Quincy? Quinton? Quickdraw?
I was wondering what he had to do with the letter Q…
I love all the fucked up fake Berenstein Bear book covers there are on the internet. Jan Berenstein would be proud…
Send me your address and he’s all yours!
You could give him a Q name.
You don’t have me in your Rolodex already? I guess I know where I rate….
P.S., thanks! You just gave me an idea for whenever I start up Shelf Critter Theatre again…
Well shit, I’ve never sent you anything and we’ve been friends for almost 5 years. I suck!
You’re welcome, prevert.
Quite the quest on an otherwise tough letter. (Q)well done. 😆
One down, two more (X and Z) to go! Well, I have a feeling Y’s gonna be a bit yucky as well…
Like the Three Stooges used to say…”Yuck, yuck, yuck. “🤣
ody N biskit…..we iz mor N thanx full yur dad did knot haza fotoz of quail……… !! ther izza Q fish tho….queen danio…. !! ☺♥♥
No quail around here… I think our squirrels would eat them. I’d have never guessed there was a Q fish…
You did really well with Q! Almost like that guy in Star Trek 2!
At least you didn’t write a Qabalistic blog!!! put that in your pipe and smoke it!! lol..
