AtoZ 2019...Oh My 'Q' Words & Photos

For AtoZ 2019, Word Prompts come first from 'Family Word Finder' ...
a thesaurus of synonyms and antonyms in alphabetical order. 
I take the first word and the last word of each letter and match it to a
photograph from my collection/files. 
Some invoke words in a story and others invoke that age old adage
"A picture is worth a thousand words."
 
 First 'Q' Word Prompt...Quack
     I so wanted to show shots of the Ducks and Geese at the park on the Concho River.  There are great shots of them swimming, ducking underwater, preening and quacking.  However, Family Word Finders idea of Quack,  it's synonyms and antonyms,  had nothing to do with water fowl, but with the foul practitioners of medicine.  They were also known as medical impostors, charlatans and fake doctors. 
     The word Quack is a short form of quacksalver, from the Dutch word kwakzalver which means to quack,  so the word may originally have meant one who quacks.  Sounds like ducks to me....
 
 
Last 'Q' Word Prompt...Quota
     So, as a collector of Head Vases, the one quantity put on the collection was the sticker price.  The measure of value was never based on size or condition.  In fact, I have more that have a minimum amount of flaws in proportion to those that are perfect. 
     There....I used my quota of synonyms in describing one of my more valuable collections.  Of course a collectibles value regardless of it's rarity or flawless condition is apportionment to what the market will bare.  In the last couple of decades it's been a Barely Market...I have reached my Quota.
 
Except on these Birthday Girls and Angels...I try to add at least 1 a year.
They are kind of like having Birthdays....Happy not to have met my Quota!
