The Q's have it!


Quiet in the house!  

       The lights dim. 

               Cue Q to center stage.


Ladies and Gentleman, introducing the quixotic letter Q, who rarely travels without his companion U.   They drink quinine water to quaff their thirst while never quiting or quaking at righting wrongs.   They certainly never quibble or quarrel over petty matters.  Together they have been celebrated by at least a quintet of artists!  Cervantes made sure they are quoted often.

Good Denizens of ABC Wednesday, please do not go into quarantine but join the quest for more Q’s!

All participants will qualify to join Harry Potter for a game of Quidditch.   Or, well, how about quoits if you quiver at the thought of careening through the air on a broom stick!

    BTW, a note to all of you: if you want to know what time 4 p.m. UK time is, check the tab just above the ABC Wednesday logo.
