Alphabe-Thursday "Q"

Good morning class! Please, please Quiet down!

I know you are in a Quandary about our letter this week! Perhaps you do not feel Qualified to tackle such a difficult letter...but please...do not Quake in your boots...you are going to be just fine with the letter "Q"!

Our wonderful student at Garden of Daisies suggested I change the reading order this week. Class, please thank her for her brilliant idea! She suggests that this week we divide the reading into Even and Odd!

If your first name starts with the letters A - L please start reading the even posts first starting with link number 2.

If your first name starts with the letters M - Z please start reading the odd posts first starting with link number 1.

But if you have time, please try and read all the links! They are always fun and fascinating.

I also want to let you know that each week I visit every blog. I noticed a blog today where my comment didn't show up. If it appears I haven't visited your blog by Friday night, please let me know, because it is important to me to make sure you know I've visited you!

And lastly, this is a giveaway week! Links to the letters N, O, P and Q will qualify you for this giveaway. It always takes me a bit to figure it out but I will try to have it Random Org'd sometime Friday night!


And, lastly, class. If you have any difficulties with your link please make sure to include the number of the link when you e-mail me. It is really difficult for me to find them otherwise. Vicki, this is going to be your easy-linking week! Hooray for you!

If you have any questions about Alphabe-Thursday or problems doing your link just post it in a comment or send me an e-mail. I'll do my best to help you.

The McLinkey will be live from 6:00 pm MST time Wednesday night through 8:00 am MST time Friday morning!

And remember.... link back to this post, you need to be registered as a follower of my blog (since there are prizes involved and it makes my life easier that way), PG posts only, and try to visit all the other students according to the letter of your first name! The links will stay live after the final post deadline has passed so you can even wait and visit over the weekend or whenever you have more time.

Class is dismissed. Quickly file your Q posts now, class!

Hello Ms. Matlock,

You are right, Q is a difficult letter of the alphabet, but being a child of the 60's, one remained embedded in my head. I'm off to see how many of the other Q's I still remember!

Have a great day in class...

Yay! I am in attendance :o)

I am going to try to get some of the posts read tonight, but it may not be until Monday that I can get to the rest of my blog reading...we are once again trekking up to KY... (I am very thankful that we are able to see our kids and be a part of their well-deserved and long-awaited graduations. :o)

I love Alphabe-Thursday...still behind on the last reading assignments (aka P posts) of the wonderful participants...

Blessings & Aloha!
(Thank you Jenny for all your helpfulness :o)

I'm even this time! Thanks for hosting class again this week! (And I hope you're enjoying this weather. Can you believe it? Middle of May and my windows are still open? Lovin' it!)

Natasha said...

This was a hard one for sure, but I still managed to have so much fun! Thanks Jenny and thanks for the give away too!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Jackie said...

Nora Johnson said...

Hi Mrs Matlock!

Here's my assignment but, as usual, there are just too many 'Q's!

XOXO LOLA:)

Please Mrs Matlock, those of us in the UK can't put up our link until we get up on Thursday morning so we are always well down the list. If everybody starts at 1 or 2 they'll never get to mine :(

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Hail to the Queens of Alphabe-Thursday! Since mine has a cookbook, perhaps she will make Quiche today! I didn't Question her but I think it's a strong possibility...A Quaint idea!
Happy Q Day!

Pondside said...

Miss, oh Miss - I'm here! Q was a hard one, Miss, but I did my homework and am off to read everyone else's!

Marlene said...

My favorite "Q" word is QUIDDLER. Quiddler: A person who hangs around wasting time at work and making conversation with people who are working

Beth said...

I confess to being easily confused but ... why do the odd numbers start with an even one (2) and the evens start with odd (1)? I've read that several times and it's still confusing me! LOL!

MrsJenB said...

Beth was not the only one confused!

Sigh...I'm always so darn late with my homework...I should post on Wednesday night from now on!

Angie said...

Q was not hard for me! Now to read some more Q's!

Brenda said...

Not sure what I am doing different then any other time but I cannot get my link attached this week for some reason. ???

Brenda said...

Never mind. I just closed it all out and started over and it linked up. Now I need to get my after work, work done so I can start reading everyone's posts.

THis was a tough letter for us Jenny, but all did well. You have no idea how what you said to me touched, and scared me at the same time, my son will be 13 in August, and this is what I am talking about, it is real, and it scary. I will take your words and thoughts and carry them with me for as long as I can.....this post really touched me, and brought me to tears at times with what people where saying. It was really good though, I need to learn and grow as well in this process. I was not the greatest teenager, but I quickly learned my lessons. Thanks Jenny.

Marlene said...

Oops...I had NO idea what I was doing when I linked up! I thought I was just supposed to provide a "Q" word in my post.....tsk......send me to the corner with my dunce cap. My apologies!

lissa said...

I'm late. I no other excuses except that I had to prioritize and this was at the bottom of my to-do, not that it wasn't fun

I still posted, I'm late for Mr. Linky but that's okay. I will try to visit a few blogs if I'm not too busy

Nezzy said...

Oh girl, so many linkies and so little time. I've been havin' fun reading how creative a Q can be.

God bless ya and have a fun time today!!!
