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!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here.
Lee was feeling a little low today, so I talked him into taking a break to go to the Y.
After a nice hot shower that he doesn’t have to clean up after, he came out to find some chap wandering around the locker room in a bit of a daze. “My clothes, my clothes! Someone has taken my clothes!” Well, he still had his bathing suit, but humans do get edgy when their clothes disappear. They wouldn’t, if they had proper fur. Besides, it was a little cold to be walking home in just a bathing suit.
Lee asked, “Have you looked in all the lockers? Here, let’s look some more.” He opened one locker, empty, another, empty, and then a third. “Here’s some clothes. Are they yours?”
They were. “Oh, I’m so happy! I haven’t been this happy in a long time!” Humans are so emotional, don’t you know.
“See, I told you to go to the Y, and look what happened–your good deed for the day,” I said. “Now maybe you can write something that people will want to read today. I don’t know what you were thinking, writing about that Frothee stuff. You worry me sometimes, mate.”
G’day, earthlings! Byron the Quokka here. And now it’s official–this blog will do birthday greetings for as many readers as would like them.
And guess who’s in charge of it? Moi! I don’t much like being called a “bloke,” but I guess Lee did it for the sake of the alliteration. So I give the old bald guy a break. (Oops!)
Now, we can’t give you a birthday greeting unless you tell us when your birthday is. Then I can write it down and be ready when the time comes. So far, four of you have sent in your birthdays, and I have written them down. The paper’s in my family’s Clue game, so it won’t get lost.
You can leave a comment on any post, and I’ll find it.
And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that a lot of us quokkas will be toasting you on that special day.
