Round 18 - Q

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photomeme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week.

I’m always curious to what you come up with!

 The challenging letter of this week is the and I've chosen the word: Query

 My turn again to write an intro.
Something I think often about and in which I find very much joy to be honest!

Today I chose for the letter Q the word Query and I truly hope that you all will do me a very great favor in going along with me in this and answer the 5 questions in my query for you:

1) In which country do you live?
2) Are you male or female?
3) How did you learn about ABC-Wednesday?
4) What do you like the most about ABC-Wednesday?
5) a) if you, at this moment, are not:
Would you  like to become a team member of ABC-Wednesday?
b) If you, at this moment, are:
Why did you decide to become a team member of ABC-Wednesday?

 I am very much looking forward to your answers!!

 Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / - week

  10. That's a good idea ! Sometimes people forget to mention from which country they are coming from !
    I live in Waterloo (near Brussels) French speaking part of Belgium, I am a vintage woman, don't remember how I found this meme, I thought it was a photo meme only as it was in the very beginning, I became team member, I don't remember why and when, I am belonging to the antiques.

    1. Hi Gattina thank you!

      Lovely to read your answers, and if i remember correctly you're not Belgian so i admire your abillity to live elsewhere and speak the language, which i don't that easily ;-)
      Never mind ... you're antique? or have forgotten some things, i am glad you are a teammember and i hope you'll stay that ;-)

  11. To answer your query, Melody: I live in the USA (Brooklyn, NY); am a woman; believe I found this wonderful meme via a fellow blogger back in 2009 (today's is my 382nd post); love the challenge of finding an image each week (especially for some letters—like X!); if I ever get around to retiring, I would definitely think about becoming a team member. And thank you!

    1. Hi Alexa... thank you for answering. I've never been in the USA but maybe someday i will .... its a long travel but apealing it is anyway ;-)
      Wonderful to see to that you are a participant for so long already!

      That would be nice... lets just hope that abc still does excist then ;-)

    It has been so long (2008, I think) since I discovered ABC Wednesday that I can't remember where I heard about it.
    I like words and languages so it is always fun to see the wide variety of subjects that participants think of.
    Sorry but I can't commit to being on the ABC committee. But I do appreciate and thank all you good team members.
    Shalom to all!
