Q has volunteered at the National Cathedral in Washington DC. for fifty years. As a child. Q attended the girl's school at the cathedral and took up the rare art of bell ringing. I am not talking the small, hand held bells many church choirs use at Christmas time. I am talking about the 3,000 pound peal bells that reside in the central tower of a major national cathedral. Ten of these bells are in the central tower of the National Cathedral.
Unlike many of the women appearing in this blog, Q is not bisexual. Quite the contrary. She is a classic spinster - unmarried her entire life. Had Q been born Catholic, I am sure she would have become a nun.
In her youth, Q was into computers. She started a data base storage company and eventually went to work for the Federal Government. There is, apparently, a strong connection between bell ringing and mathematics. Rather than reading sheet music, bell ringers read sheets of music with numbers on them.
About ten years ago, Q broke her leg. She was walking in her backyard when her tibia snapped in half for no apparent reason. Quilla lay in her backyard for 4 hours before a neighbor heard her screams and called for an ambulance.
Q endured a horribly painful ambulance ride. X-Rays revealed a spiral fracture of the tibia which was set in the Emergency Room of George Washington University Hospital - the same hospital where Ronald Reagan was treated after he was shot. Q stayed in the hospital for three days. Tests indicated bone density issues as the cause of the fracture. She has fully recovered from the injury.
Q has overseen bell ringing for many significant events. These include Presidential burials and inaugurations. She is recognized as a world leader in the bell ringing world.
