Time Out! We Have a Winner!

Congratulations to Phoebe, who has posted our 65,000th comment and thus won our current comment contest!

Phoebe, you get to pick your prize–either a paddle ball toy, or an autographed copy of my book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. If you pick the fli-back, it’s guaranteed your cat will someday make the little rubber ball disappear. But whatever you choose, please email me your mailing address.

Several readers came close to winning at the last minute–we had kind of a photo finish.

Now, then, if I can ever get this blog’s viewership numbers back to normal, I think we’ll have another contest when we approach 70,000 comments.

Thanks to all of you who’ve stuck with us.

So Where’s the Comments?

G’day–or not so good, dependin’ how you look at it. Byron the Quokka here, getting blamed because I’m in charge of the comment contest and there ain’t a single comment yet today. Honestly! Some of the other quokkas are so impatient! I don’t see any of them volunteering to take my place, do I?

Plus I’m trying to create a world-class university here on Rottnest Island, and who has time for comments on a blog? Only me, it seems!

I must remind all readers that we are taking comments from humans only. There’s this wombat named Goose (go figure!) who thinks we all want to sit around reading his lame attempts at crepuscularities (“Where is a wombat womb at?”–crikey, not even original!), so he’s good for about 30 comments a day, all of them deleted.

Any road, let’s see what you humans have to say!

We’re Almost to Almost There

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with another one of those bicycles Lee won’t let me give out as the prize for winning the comment contest.

But we’ve got another prize that’s just as good! Better, even. And whoever posts milestone Comment No. 50,000 will win it.

Now we haven’t told you yet what that prize will be, and I’m not allowed to tell you until we reach 49,000 comments. So far we’ve got 48,846–which means we still have 154 comments to go; and then, and only then, I shall reveal the prize for No. 50,000. Some of you have been after me to let it out now, but I just can’t do it: he’d never trust me again.

Believe me, those last thousand comments will come quick! We are almost there to almost there, as we say on Rottnest Island.

I wish my legs were long enough to let me ride a bicycle.
