    Default Drop Cap February 2015

    This month the letter is Q.
    The last one was an experiment. Cannot locate J and L anywhere so cannot make a complete set.

    It's Desmond Llewelyn, the actor who played Q in the James Bond films Larry.....

    That's clever, Egg.
    This is a home-made "Q" framed in a matching design that the sharp-eyed among you will see is made using Larry's current Scribble.
    The background texture inside the frame is made from a three-colour fill.

    Very good Bob. That could even be submitted as a scribble.

    I'll be calling Q......uuuu

    Not sure , I may have lost it here, but Q always goes with U. Nothing to do with drop capitals though so I'm probably way off topic

    I don't understand why Q and U go together Egg, but, you can do it however you see fit. Good work though.

    Larry, the list of words where there is a different letter than 'u' following a 'Q' is pretty short. I assume that's what Egg is referring to.

    Mike, sorry to be such a "numb node" but I still fail to get the connection. If it were an F instead of a Q hen I might. Not that it isn't a nice drop cap, because it is, that's not what is giving me trouble, I just don't get the connection. Oh woe is me. If it is a reference to Star Trek's Q tnen I might.
