(“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!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if you want to listen to a bunch of really beautiful Christmas music, hop on over to Lee’s “Playground Player Chessforum” on http://www.chessgames.com/ . Our friends OhioChessFan, Jessicafischerqueen, Count Wedgemore (from Norway, with a Swedish carol for us), and Diceman have loaded it up with Christmas carols today. Just click “chessforums” at the bottom of the page, then scroll down until you find the little green dinosaur and “Playground Player,” and click that. Let us know if you have any trouble connecting to it, although I don’t think you will.
Oh! And please let us know if you go crazy or something because of too much Christmas music, which Science says is bad for you–nyah-nyah to that!
We’d post ’em here, only suddenly it’s an embarrassment of riches, dontcha know–nowhere to put ’em all. But if enough of you ask for it, I’ll try. Maybe one a day. That’d work.
It’s going to be a merry Christmas, everybody!
P.S.–Come to think of it, I think I will post them here over the next few days. Just in case you can’t get there.
G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with a progress report on our second annual Christmas Carol Contest.
A new leading carol has emerged, racking up 44 views the other day–44, by gum! But as a wise Tasmanian devil once said, “Where there’s 44, there must be more.” For the time being, those 44 views have set a record. But records are made to be broken!
The winner will get an autographed copy of Lee’s new Bell Mountain book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. It hasn’t been published yet, but everything’s ready and it should be coming out soon.
Keep those Christmas hymn requests coming!
Requested by Erlene, Wise Men Follow Him, by Carroll Roberson. We seem to be on the subject of the Wise Men today. Well, why not? But Matthew does say they found the baby Jesus and His family in “the house”–they weren’t in the manger anymore, by then.
We have a new leader in our Christmas carol contest–40 views! That’ll be tough to beat, but we’re here to let you try.
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!
