I’ve Got It, I’ve Got It! New Contest!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with big-big news!

Here we were, looking for a new contest–and this was staring us right in the face. I’m amazed Lee never thought of it; but even I never thought of it until it was almost too late.

We’re after milestones. Well! A hundred thousand views in one year–that’s a milestone, isn’t it? You bet it is! And we’ve already got 98,386 views, so No. 100,000 ought to come up in a hurry.

How will we know exactly which view was No. 100,000?

Well, we won’t–it’ll probably come in while we’re asleep, or outdoors, or underwater. So my idea is, view + comment that comes closest to 100,000, that’ll be the winner.

And the winner of this epoch-defining contest will get a bright red, Xtra Large, official Quokka T-shirt, suitable for formal wear, ideal for sleepwear, and blinkin’ perfect for giving speeches in!  See the source image

(I don’t know why we can’t get a picture of a red one. Trust me, it’s red.)

I’ve been promised a raise if this contest turns out to be a success–so don’t let me down, folks!

  1. Hooray, let’s win one for the quokka!

    Lee, do you realize that all your characters — and I don’t mean just the ones in the Bell Mountain series — have almost taken on lives of their own? Sometimes I have to remind myself that Byron, Joe Collidge, Violet Crepuscular, et al., are works of fiction.

    But I still want to boop Byron’s nose. 🙂

    1. Fictional characters always try to become real. You just have to give them a little encouragement.
      And are you feeling better, Phoebe?

    2. Thank you for asking, Lee. The pains have subsided, and the fever returns only intermittently and at a very low level. Now I’m dealing with the side effects of the antibiotics, one of which is a kind of dizziness — as though the gyroscope in my brain has malfunctioned — and a tendency of my legs to carry me in the wrong direction, like Cousin Feenix’s legs in “Dombey and Son.” 🙂 Oh, well, only a few more days of the antibiotics, and if they take care of the original condition, I don’t mind the temporary side effects, most of which I was warned about when I got the prescription.
