ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "Q".
When I sat down to do this post, I had no intention of using "Queen" again as I used it in the last round. That all changed in a matter of moments. I received an email from a friend in my inbox with the following images of the Queen of England over her 59 years of reign with each of our presidents. And, it also made me think of queen bee, so I Googled that and found this tattoo image of a queen bee (this is from a tattoo parlor located in Las Veags, NV called Jime Litwalk-now you too, can have a tattoo of a queen bee upon your person). I'll stop digressing. Long live the Queen!
"The Queen Of England – her anniversary is coming up. May 12, 1952 she ascended to the throne, 59 years this week!
I (not me, but the unknown author of this series of images) was a little shocked by the pictures when it penetrated my brain how long she's been around. She gives new meaning to the phrase "Long Live the Queen".
How old does this one make you feel? Keep scrolling...
AMAZING, isn't it???
Those "Q's"...so unique YET they almost always have to appear with the letter, "U". Quite the relationship, isn't it? I can't think of any other letter that has this requirement in order to be used. It seems unfair. Nor could I find the origin to this practice and why is it necessary? I would like to have an explanation if anyone out there has found the answer!
And, since the quivering quarks were quickly quelled, we need not worry about them.
