Birthday Greetings: Jeremy

See the source image

Before we get involved with anything else around here (computer problems this morning: *sigh*), let’s have a big “Happy Birthday!” shout-out to Jeremy, who is 298 years old in quokka years today.

Jeremy and his brother, Joshua, are also known as “J&J” on Youtube, where they have their own music channel. We know them best as regular contributors to this blog.

I don’t know what time it is in Japan, just now; but if you haven’t gone to bed yet, Jeremy, Happy Birthday!

[P.S.–If you’d like birthday greetings here, just tell us what day it is so we can add it to the list.]


Birthday Greetings: Sue

Happy birthday, Sue! We know you from Pogo as “Teddy”–but any quokka will tell you that you can never have too many names.

Byron the Quokka here. And we have organized a fantastic celebration of your birthday, here on Rottnest Island. Wait a minute… somebody just yelled at me, “You make it sound like she was born on Rottnest Island!” Well, I’m sure I didn’t mean to.

Anyway, Sue, may you have a glorious birthday with lots of cake and ice cream and whatever else humans eat when they’re feeling festive.


Birthday Greetings: Joshua

Break out the party hats and noisemakers, boys ‘n’ girls! It’s Joshua’s birthday today! He is eleventy-five! Check out his blog, “Spread the Word,” at http://www.joshuamankatoswanson.wordpress.com/ . Tell him Byron the Quokka sent you.

Here on Rottnest Island the quokkas are all whooping it up. We love the readers on this blog! And Joshua is sort of a hero here, for translating Bell Mountain into Japanese. Maybe someday he’ll translate it into Quokka, too.

P.S.–Anyone of you who’d like to get a birthday greeting here, just let us know the date so I can put it on my list. We say it enhances our fellowship.

P.P.S.–Oh, fap! The link we gave you doesn’t work. Try this instead–

Birthday Greetings to Phoebe!

Break out the party hats, boys ‘n’ girls–today is Phoebe’s birthday!

This is always going to be an easy date for me to remember, because for Patty and me, it’s the anniversary of our first date, on Dec. 26, 1976. The Islanders Polynesian Restaurant.

But first, it’s our time to join in celebrating Phoebe’s birthday and making sure she knows how much she means to us, and to our fellowship.

Happy birthday, Phoebe!


Happy Birthday, Dave!

(“If I can just get myself out of this laundry bag in time for David’s party!”)

Birthday greetings today to our friend Dave, known to most of us here as TheWhiteRabbit! Byron the Quokka has organized a mighty celebration on Rottnest Island, which is going on even as we speak–in spite of him getting stuck in someone’s laundry bag. He’s managed two birthday messages in a row now without a hitch.

We love to mark your birthdays on this blog; it enhances our fellowship. So if you’d like to be part of the fun, send us a message and let us know when your birthday is. We’ll put it on the list.

There’s another birthday coming up in a few days. We’ve got it covered!


Birthday Greetings to Ina!

G’day, mates! Break out those party hats and noisemakers, because today is Ina’s birthday! She lives in Scotland, so it’s a bit tricky for her to come to the party we’re throwing for her, here on Rottnest Island–but we’re totally sure she’s here in spirit.

Well, everybody, what’re you waiting for? Whoop it up!


Byron’s Hiding

Pssst! (Whispers) Byron here–hiding from Lee because I talked him into laying off the nooze today and his views went down. Like it’s my fault! The one time he actually listens to me, and it doesn’t work!

Meanwhile, I’m still collecting birthdays so we can give birthday greetings to our readers when their big day comes up. So far we’ve only got a dozen, including a couple that we just missed by a few days. Don’t be shy!

Well, time for me to be heading home. The family’s playing Clue tonight, and it’s my turn to be Professor Plum.       See the source image

 


Now We Are 70

And the joke’s on me, ’cause I don’t have life insurance!

Anyhow, today I’ve made it to threescore and ten. It’d be nice to be working on Bell Mountain No. 13, only the weather has not been cooperating and I don’t have but the tiniest hints of what that book might be about. So I propose to eat brownies, smoke a cigar, and indulge myself in dinosaur videos while ducking the nooze. I’ve already heard more of that than I wanted to hear today.

I was going to go to the Y and celebrate by playing basketball; but with my finger in the shape it’s in, I dassn’t go anywhere near a basketball, One false move, and it’s an out-of-body experience for the Leester. I’ll just have to wait till I’m a little older before I play again.

Most important: Today’s the day our friend and sister Evelyn gets interviewed by NPR about her long opposition to same-sex fake marriage, and we all ought to be praying for her. May the Holy Spirit give her words to speak, words of power and conviction–because only God knows who might be listening. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

So I’ll be around all day, checking in from time to time, hoping to see a great big spike in my book sales [laughs hysterically], exchanging pleasantries… and closely monitoring the progress of our present comment contest! I can’t leave it all to Byron the Quokka; he’s so easily distracted. And of course the hymn shop remains open all day.

See you in a bit.
