So what you can’t see is Pennsylvania.  I painted a map of the great state of Pennsylvania on the back side of the severed book cover you see above.  I thought the idea of Pennsylvania going to Paige and the Penland Post office was Perfect! I suggest that you check out the PO next your in the neighborhood.  You can also go to their web site (http://www.penlandpostoffice.org/) and learn about the building, the history of the region, the people that brought the area to life and future plans for the Post Office building.  It’s good to know it’s so well supported by the community.  It’s an important part of the community.

The letter Q  was captured in a Spiderman lunchbox.  How could you know?  And what does Q have to do with acorns you may wonder?  In this box Paige listed all of the Quercus (oaks).  There are 27.  But that number can’t begin to compete with the number of species of sQuirrels. How many are there?  (This is the last question in the quiz …………………………….. 278!)

The Letter U came in the form of Umbilicaria.

The Letter U came in the form of Umbilicaria.  Edible? Yes.  Unusual? U-betcha. Ugly? Well, that would be unkind.

So there you have it: P, Q &  U.  See you soon with J, W and Y.  The last 3 letters.
