ABC Q is for...

Q is for...
Q can be hard.
Well, not as hard as X. I could go Q is for quilts but I have used that before
--even for a whole round of ABC Wednesday.
So now I face another Q and will not do quilts.
Q is for questions. 
Do you have any questions? 
Put them in the comments* and I will see if I have any answers.
If you have a four year old in your home, the question most asked is probably:
Why?

Some recent questions that I have been asked:
Having been given the information sheet with complete details of what children are to wear for First Communion. "Boys should wear dark pants and a white shirt, with or without tie."

I have been asked:
"What should my boy wear?"
"Can my boy wear khaki slacks?"
"Can I wear my tuxedo?" "Should I wear a suit?"

My answer to the last two questions is, "if you have one you can wear it. But don't go out and buy a suit, because the next time you will want to wear it will probably be for your wedding, and it won't fit."

*Blog questions:
My comment notice asks that commenters not ask Blog help questions in my comments. I have the privilege of being asked by Google to be a Blogger Top Contributor.  I answer blog help questions at the Blogger Help Forumwhen the question is about something I can help with. I don't answer them in my comments. That is an invasion of my blogspace, and is spam. I will mark such questions as spam.

Well, first of all...how ARE you? I love this post and do remember your previous post about quilts. This is a good Q post and I'll have to think a bit on this...hmmm. Okay, did you know I'm going to England and Wales this summer and will meet up with Liz again? I first met her when she came to Vancouver a few years ago and we had lunch at Bridges on Granville Island. Okay, how did I do? lol

Great question. We're doing quite well, but will know better when hubby visits the oncologist next week. And yes, Leslie, I knew you were going and I knew that Liz had visited with you when she visited BC. I was soooooo jealous at the time. But then we got to visit with her in Wales two years ago. It was wonderful. So I know you will have a great time. And you get to meet George!!!

OK, here's a question or three. Why are you on Blogger? What did you think of the changes recently, which drove some folks crazy? Have you ever considered WordPress or another platform?

I remember the days when my kids always asked "why" to everything. My grandkids do it to but it dosent bother me as much, maybe because I'm not stressed as I was then.

I remember reading this obscure quote somewhere - "Questions are a burden to others, the answers a prison for oneself".

my now 45 year old son always had questions as a child. This one he asked at age three, stumped me: "Where do hills come from?"

@ Roger,I first blogged on a setup from my local ISP. It was cumbersome and I couldn't even find my address it was so complicated. No fun at all. Blogger was so much easier. I eased into the new user interface gradually. I held on to the old as long as I could, being not the first by which the new is tried. But I am not the last to lay the old aside, either. And as a Blogger TC, I had to be ready to answer questions about it, so I had to explore. I haven't even thought of moving to another platform--well, except for when I moved to blogger. I accept it for what it is and don't try to make it something else.

@ Ann, Grandkid questions are generally much easier to handle. You can just say, go ask your Dad.

@ ChrisJ, I just don't know where to go with that one.

Righto, I shall go to blogger forum to ask my question!
