Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter Q – Simply needs to have the letter Q

What would I do without squirrels and antiques? In this case, I would be lost! The moment I realized I had pictures of squirrels — in my case, stuffed dog toy squirrels — and a lot of antique whatevers, I knew I was “home free,” so to speak. Welcome to my Q world!

An antique airplane
Gibbs with squirrel – soon to be a non-squirrel
Bonnie protecting the squirrel from other marauders — but she is the worst of them!
Friend’s don’t let friends bat ninth! Garry wearing Evil Squirrel’s best Tee Shirt!

And finally, antiques, from an airplane to a cookie jar and an iron doorstop. Old, older, oldest!

      1. I don’t blame you at all…. with precious treasures like that, one would want to be so careful who would inherit them.


        1. I just want to be sure it’s someone who will take care of them. You’d be surprised how hard it is to find anyone interested in them … and that’s for free. I’m not searching for money, just to know that these very old things will continue to live on without me. The kids don’t want the stuff and most of them not only have no interest, they also have no room.

          1. I agree… and understand. Most people anymore don’t seem to see the beauty of antiques. Even as a child, I loved anything old and nothing has changed. Old houses, furnishings, books, movies, music and clothes… the older the better. It has so much more character, usually better crafted, and they all have stories. I just don’t understand people who don’t love old stuff! LOL maybe I was just born in the wrong era! X D


                1. I know. Unfortunately, the people who might have taken it are OUR age. I need to find younger people who will treasure them and I’m not finding them. Everyone admires them. No one wants to OWN them.


    1. Hi to both of you! Q worked out to be a much better letter than I expected and I had fun with it. Our current life is consumed with lamps that won’t work. It is an electrical month.


  1. Great selection and I Love the Kerchiefs around the doggie’s necks. So cute and adorable! My cat Sylvester would have a fit if I tried to put an article of clothing on him! LOL!! Excellent photos!! ❤


    1. It’s the groomer. Whenever they are groomed, before they leave they fit them with a kerchief, seasonally appropriate. That one was I think the summer model. Later, they got a Halloween special one. When they get scruffy, we remove them but they’re cute. Kerchiefs are THE ONLY thing they will tolerate.
