Thursday, August 28


This week's Thursday Thirteen About me is with the letter


1. Quack – Through my working career I ran into several doctors who were quacks. This reminds me of skit done by George Carlin. It goes something like this. If you rate all the doctors in the world, you would eventually get to the very last name – the worst doctor in the world. What is really scary is someone has an appointment with him tomorrow.

2. Quibble – I find it ridiculous to quibble over the little things.

3. Quadruple –Since I started driving, the price of gasoline has more than quadrupled and quadrupled again in price. Do you remember 35 cents a gallon?


4 Qualifications – Do either of the presidential candidates have the appropriate qualifications to run our country?


5 Quality of life – I hope that as long as I’m here on earth I will continue to have a good quality of life.

6. Quantum leap – Through my life journey I have taken many quantum leaps in my professional and personal life.

7. Quarrel – This is something I hate to do. It makes me feel uneasy. (Actually I would prefer a good ole fist fight) lol

8. Quarter – When the state quarters first came out I worked very diligently to collect each and every one. Then my enthusiasm wore off and then I would save one occasionally. I don’t even know if I have the WV coin. Shame on me.


9. Quartz – I like gems from quartz as well as the precious stones. I use to wear to blue topaz ring everyday.


10. Queen sized – I have a queen sized bed and I fear if I would buy pant hoses I would need queen sized. Now I’m blushing and looking embarrassed.


11. Quiche – I make a wonderful quiche with 4 different cheeses, sausage, and onions. This is a quiche even men will eat.


12. Quick – Usually I’m very quick to pickup on new techniques with a computer.

13. Quite - Now I know you are quite pleased that I am not going to quiz you on my quirky TT13.

Hey what a GRAND job you did on the Q's!! That was one of the hardest for me when I did them but you picked out great words.
Yes, I remember the 35 cent gas. When Mike and I used to date he would come 40 miles one way to see me then he would only have a very small amount of money..under a dollar..that would get him back home then. Can you imagine now?
hope all is well with you today, Linda.

Quite a "Q" list. Loved your "Q" words. I laughed that you'd rather have a fist fight than quarrel. You go girl.

Great post! Have a wonderful weekend.

I enjoyed your Q's. I think they would be hard to do for me. You did a great job with them. Oh, I have a blue topaz ring as well! Topaz is my birth stone.

Have a great day!


Hugs,

Renie

Thanks for stopping by!! Losing weight is just a pain in the rear if you ask me. I just keep trying and trying and trying. I guess the day I finally give up I will start gaining and weigh 300 lbs..Oh no..

Hi Linda, You did really good with the Q words! Wow! I know I couldn't have began to do as good! I do remember gas at 35 cents a gallon! I even remember it cheaper when I was little back in the 40's
love and hugs, Grams

I remember when gas was 19 cents/gallon ... seriously! What a fun ‘q’ list for your T-13 … I would have thought that a challenging letter, but yours was delightful. Have I mentioned that I love your pink tulips? I must have ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Great post! You came up with great "q"s. Quacks was one of my favorites. George Carlin was very insightful as well as hilarious. I do remember gas at $.35 a gallon. That is what it was the day I met my future husband at a gas station! LOL
