The Alphabet Challenge “Q” Stories voting round is in quasi-full swing and — keeping to what I said in the last round — I cut the number of reminders in half. Rather than every day, it will now be every other day. Or, should I make it every two days? Maybe bidaily is the way to go (not the twice-a-day meaning; the other interpretation).

Anyway, voting is open, some have already voted, and other readers are chomping at the bit to participate.

If you are one such reader, thank you in advance for eventually reading our stories and for eventually casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge Q-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link Votes will be accepted until noon on October 5th.

Because I’m tired, only two photos with this reminder. Here is the first . . .
Yes, that’s the Nikon-loving frog.

For them not interested in reading, you can see the photos in THIS SmugMug Gallery.  

For a SmugMug slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the top-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

If you want the full experience, keep reading.

So, a few days ago I posted this preview photo:
