G’day! Lee’s laid out with symptoms way too disgusting to mention, so everything is left up to me, Byron the Quokka.

It falls to me to announce the winner of our second annual Christmas Carol Contest. It’s Joshua [trumpet fanfare]! His carol, I Wonder As I Wander, racked up 21 view the day it was requested.

Now it remains but for Joshua to pick his prize–an autographed copy of one of lee’s books, a red T-shirt that says “If they have to kill us, they’ve lost”… or some little plastic army men. The few plastic army men that have survived the passage of a thousand years have mystified the best minds in Obann.

By Request, ‘We Three Kings’

Phoebe asked for this one–We Three Kings, by the Robert Shaw Chorale. She’s feeling a bit sick today: we pray for each other.

Remember, this is the last day of the Christmas Carol Contest. Let’s light up the scoreboard!

By request, ‘Amen’ (Gospel Christmas Version)

I’m sick today, had a horrible night last night, so don’t expect too much of me today.

I haven’t heard this song, Amen!, in donkey’s years; I didnt know there was a Christmas version.

YouTube didn’t tell me who’s singing this, or where. Whoever they are, they’ve got enthusiasm.

Only Two Days Left!

Happy Quokka Christmas & New Year Card |

Don’t blame me for this picture. None of the really good ones worked.

Hey, listen–hark! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that you only have left today and tomorrow to enter our annual Christmas Carol Contest. Just two days!

Yesterday a reader finally made a request that netted 21 views and a new leader in the contest. The winner will be whoever requests the hymn that gets the most views on the day it was requested. The prize is either an autographed copy of one of Lee’s books or this cool T-shirt that says “If they have to kill us, they’ve lost.” Your choice of prizes. If it was up to me, the prize would be a bicycle. Or maybe a staff of servants. But who listens to me? I just work here.

Did I hear somebody say a bag of plastic army men?

By Request, ‘Adeste Fideles’ (Bing Crosby)

So many versions of this hymn! But you can’t go wrong with Bing Crosby, can you?

Requested by Ina (you remain in our prayers), Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful in Latin).

By Request, ‘I Wonder As I Wander’

Another entry for our Christmas Carol Contest, requested by Joshua–I Wonder As I Wander, sung by Simon Khorolskiye. And where does he find that scenery! Background sets by God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth.

By Request, ‘Christmas Time All Over the World’

“Before you dot another i, Bob Cratchit!”–that is, before I cover any more nooze, we have a Christmas song request by Erlene–Christmas From All Over the World, by Carroll Roberson.

Three more days for the Christmas Carol Contest! Can’t we liven it up a little?

By Request, ‘Away in a Manger’

We have this Christmas hymn request from Susan–Away in a Manger, sung by 9-year-old Claire Crosby.

The melody she sings to is more common in Britain than in America. I keep running into that. I guess if I want to find the American melody, I’ll have to hunt for it.

By Request, ‘Little Stranger’

I know I said I’d write something about world government today; but we are running a Christmas carol contest, and if I’m lucky enough to get another entry from a reader, I really ought to post it.

Requested by Erlene, Little Stranger, by Carroll Roberson. Background sets by God the Father.

By Request, ‘O Holy Night’ (Madi Jackson)

Christmas Carol Contest–wagons, roll!

Today’s first entry is from SlimJim: O Holy Night, featuring Madi Jackson.

Remember–the winner gets either an autographed copy of one of my books (you in the back–stop yawning!) or a cool red T-shirt that says “If they have to kill us, they’ve lost.”
