QQQ Challenge

Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “P”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “Q” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “Q”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “Q”!!! Myself I’ll focus on “the Q”:

We spent some weeks in New York and used the subway daily. Once my wife was bleeding after she hurt herself falling on the boardwalk; I didn’t know how to help her, but a woman sitting next to my wife in the subway to Queens helped her vs. the bleeding very perfectly; then the woman told us, she had just escaped from the war in Sarajevo, former Yugoslavia, Europe; New York always had a big heart and said welcome to so many refugees!

  3. Hi there Frizz, nice Q here. I am in this week with “Quirky” shops from Slovakia. Here’s the link:


    • quest / search = always searching for the very picture, yes:
      you wrote:
      “The king was plagued with the heavy burden of responsibility. Drought and famine, war and rebellion, disease and disaster, one after the other! I must find a way to quiet my troubled heart, so I can sleep at night! He offered a reward to the…” photographer who could compose him a portrait of perfect peace. So here it is: me sitting in a chair which fits me well (?)


  4. Q is for quadrille. A poem in four parts (my definition). Traditionally the quadrille was a courtly dance with four couples. It is also a musical structure. But when you fold an 8.5″ by 11″ sheet of paper in half you get space for four poems. Hence the quadrille was invented. I wrote a couple last year. http://bumbastories.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/quadrille/




  6. nice pictures and intesresting stories. If it was a F, i would have chose Falafel, because of a falafel vendor in NYC, a french with his son in France for studies. We talk a lot. He was happy to speak french and the falafel were so good (it’s vegetarian !)….


    • if it was a P, i would have choose Pizza,
      if it was a S, i would have choose Spaghetti,
      if it was an i, i would have choose ice cream!
      we had Falafel when our French friends,
      who originally came from Egypt,
      made it in our kitchen!


  7. Love the shot through that window, Frizz 🙂 Queuing- yes, us Brits are supposed to be great at it!
    I’ve got one for you- I just need a little time 🙂

    Very cool photo, Frizz. Love the heartwarming story! Here is my entry: http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/qqq-quilts/
    Have a wonderful week 🙂


  11. Hi Frizz, I haven’t exactly got a ‘Q’ for you, at least not yet. Spent all my time writing ‘In Much Wenlock An Inspector Calls’ all about my town and its Neighbourhood Plan – our attempt to get the kind of development we want – QUALITY not QUANTITY: http://wp.me/pKVAM-pe


  12. QATAR:
    a musician in Qatar, looks quite comfortable. But I’ve heard that some workers from Asia, working for architects’ dream buildings [FIFA will organize soccer world championship there], are treated like slaves …

  16. A kind and caring story that show New York can be warm and fuzzy sometimes. I took the O train many times. My hubby had lived there for about 2 years before we married. Love the pigeons in the window as you look out of the train.
    I had almost posted quilts bu didn’t because it was so obvious. I’m glad I didn’t since Amy has the homor of that post. Here’s mine … enjoy

    Have a nice day!

    Very “kingly” portrait indeed, Frizz–makes me think of my fave movie, “Camelot”. Hope you enjoyed my alphabet swan song–I didn’t make it to Z, but we had a good run nonetheless.

  26. Hi Frizz, love your Q subway pic … and story … here is my Q transport http://dadirridreaming.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/qqq-is-for-qantas/


    • I didn’t know anything about the roots of the QUANTAS plane design, so thank you for: “one of Qantas’ special paint designs based on Aboriginal motifs. We watched while it was prepared for flight, before boarding in Brisbane on our way home from our Far North Queensland adventure ,,,”
