T is TERRIBLY important.
Without T there would be no TRIUMPH over TYRANTS.
We could not TASTE our TEA, or TWEET on TWITTER.
We could not TAKE TIME TO THINK.
We could not TELL THE TABLOIDS TO TELL THE TRUTH, nor could we TEACH TWIN TODDLERS TO TWIST.
We could not TALK, because we would have no TONGUES.
Without T there would be no TV, no TURKEY on THANKSGIVING, no TUBAS, TROMBONES, TRUMPETS or TIMPANI.
We would not be able to wear TROUSERS.
There would be no TRENDS, no TRAVEL, no TOURISTS, no TREASURES and no TRADE.
So please, TAKE a moment and TELL us your TRIBUTE to T.
Because worst of all, without T, there would be no TROY. And that, my friends would be TRULY TRAGIC.

Say! This is Sylvia and guess what? It's the S day and Sam Schnauzer and I are ready to climb into our Sailboat with a bouquet of Sunflowers, a bowl full of Salad, a Salami Sandwich or two to Satisfy our appetite and, of course, a pitcher of Sangria to Sip on as we Sit Safely on the Sand at the beach! Who knows who may come Sailing up with a Saber! I hate to get Sentimental, but I'm Suddenly reminded of the year I lived in Mexico and Sat on my patio, wrapped in my Serape, watching the Sunsets! So, Schlepp along with us. Share the Smiles, Sing Some Songs, Swing your hips and dance and just be Silly and never too Serious! That is how we find the Sweetness of life and avoid the Storms!! Is that Super or what!! So long, See you next week -- bring Some Sourdough bread , Some Smiles and prepare to Sing Some Songs, even if the weather is Stormy! Okay?

I am Roger and I am reticent, reserved, retiring, retrospective, reliable, respectful, realistic, reasonable, and reclusive.
I am also rowdy, rambunctious, raucous, ridiculous, radical, rambunctious, rebellious, reckless, rascally, and rollicking.
It all depends how I ROLL out of bed.
I do try NOT to be redundant, raunchy, raging, rude, or ruthless.
But I don't mind if I'm reminiscent, reflective, rejoicing, relaxed, resourceful, romantic or restorative.
RAH! I'm relieved I'm done, and relish the opportunity to read what you wrote, even if it's by rote.
Oh, yeah, a REMINDER about the RIGHT way to post to ABC Wednesday.
1. Write a post that in some even tenuous way REFLECTS the letter of the week. It doesn't have to be written on Tuesday or Wednesday; it could be from the previous Friday or Sunday. Make it clear that the post is for ABC Wednesday by both having a link to ABC Wednesday and an indication somewhere that R is for Roger, e.g.; doesn't need to be in the title, as it could be in the body of the post. Using one of the badges would be especially nice. Some folks post to multiple memes and that's OK, but if you mention the other ones and don't mention ours...
2. Post the specific URL of that post to the Linky that is available about 4 p.m., Greenwich Mean Time on Tuesdays, which turns out to be 11 a.m or noon, U.S. Eastern time, depending on when the clocks change. By SPECIFIC URL, we mean, e.g., http://www.rogerogreen.com/2011/05/01/r-is-for-real-rodin, not just http://www.rogerogreen.com/. There are two reasons for this - so people can find your specific post now and comment, especially later in the week, and so people can come back six months from now and see what people did for a letter last time through. Cheryl explained this some weeks ago.
3. CHECK THE LINK. Sometimes people have put in email@example.com rather than mywebsite.blogspot.com in the Linky, which doesn't work. You should be getting an e-mail which will allow you to delete your own post and try again.
4. Comment on other people's blogs; 5 or 7 or 10, or more if you're so inclined. Check on Tuesday or Wednesday and maybe over the weekend for the later arrivals.

I always think Q is a pretty letter it lends itself to curls and swirls. It also is usually followed with a U. The QUESTION is how many Q words do not? Well there is:
