An Abecedarian Mystery

A contest for my word sleuths!

I stumbled on this sign last week while rambling around the old Fort.

What did it say...?

Give us a little indulgent fiction.
What's your take on this picture?
What's the story?

How to play:

Send it in the comments, or
by email:
The entries will publish in next week's blog post.

A surprise by snail mail goes to the best guess!

I'll announce the winner on Thursday, March 15.

Speaking of Alphabets...
Birdy's best girl is getting a baby quilt,
the kind where her doting aunties and friends make a square with a letter of the alphabet.
Our letter was "Q"
so, I sewed her a Queen,
with a Quill,
doing a Quiz
with Question marks,
under a Quilt.

But I didn't do it Quickly.

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick - Chris Van Allsburg
The Chronicles of Harris Burdick - (anthology based on the first book)

all those books look delicious - I just got Hugo for my grandson's birthday today - it is exquisite!
Now for the challenge:

*1: an arc of the horizon measured between a fixed point (as true north) and the vertical circle passing through the center of an object usually in astronomy and navigation clockwise from the north point through 360 degrees
