Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 15

See the source image

G’day! That’s me, Byron the Quokka, jumping across the shark-infested River of Doom to bring you Question No. 15 in our Bell Mountain trivia contest. Whew–got across unscathed! And here’s your question:

In what battle was Angel, King Ryons’ hawk, honored by the Hosa warriors?

Only five questions to go, and I’m afraid I’m gunner have to make ’em hard, from here on out. How fast can you read Bell Mountain books? Meanwhile, if you’re new here and you don’t know what I’m talking about, just go to the home page and click “Books.”

Well, I got across the River of Doom all right. Now comes the tricky part: getting back.


Byron: Another Friendly Reminder

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here–and why do I look so blinkin’ happy?

Well, all right, we quokkas are happy most of the time. But today we just found out that we’re able to offer that fantastic prize we talked about, to whoever wins the big comment contest and posts Comment No. 50,000.

Ah, but what is it? Sorry, but I’m not allowed to tell you that until we have 49,000 comments. Last I looked, we have 48,541. So if you want to see what the prize is… well, get chatting. And then watch those last thousand comments go up like crazy!

Tomorrow I’ll put up Question No. 15 of the Bell Mountain trivia contest–that’s 15 out of 20. Whoever wins that one gets an autographed book. We do have someone in the lead, but I’d rather not tell you who it is. You can have fun trying to guess!

And now I’m late for my How To Write A Great Novel lesson with Ms. Violet Crepuscular, so I’ll see you tomorrow.


Oh, Boy! Bell Mountain Trivia Question No.12!

https://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/u/fQYSUbVfts-T7odkrFJckdiFeHvab0GWOfzhj7tYdC0uglagsDGH3Fvhkdk-_KHFKvKp7CLKaLI5UuDuBrLal95lkUkjF2u251_SFvoYwai8-Dk7SwXHfmaEFcH8JB5RtSJJs_wdMZ9tua13GhwapgODCpmDayngOSUAczJ2Xga3k3YBsPVLnb2sOE4YK_cSmBQ64ZTNEvzaFWtMqZCo80wuJw/

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here–and where’s everybody else? That’s me in the picture, looking for the readers.

Well, if you are here this morning, you’re in luck–’cause that means you’re getting first crack at Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 12. And here it is.

Who put the flowers on King Ryons’ throne?

If you ask me, that’s a jolly easy one. Although there was one quokka named Maurice who didn’t know the answer, and got such a hard time over it, he had to wear one of those fake-nose-with-glasses get-ups.

Remember–if you have no idea what all this is about, visit the blog’s home page and click “Books.” It’s all about Lee’s books. Which you should read! Even if you don’t want to be in the trivia contest.


Funny Furry Friends (plus question to readers)

There are some good bits in this collection. My favorite is the jumping chicken. And I like the footage of the dog dragging the gigantic stuffed toy up the stairs–toward what end, we can only speculate.

Question for Readers: False Facts 4.0 is coming out tomorrow. Would you like me to review it?

 


Byron Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 11

Image result for images of quokkas

Well, so far I haven’t come up with any questions that have stumped everybody…

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 11. There’s always some smarty-pants who knows the answer. Humans must be smarter than we thought. But let’s see if this one stops ’em:

Who was the only person to escape the avalanche that buried the Thunder King’s hall? (Hint: this person left early.)

Remember, the winner of this contest gets a Bell Mountain book autographed by the author, who’s too cheap to give you a bicycle.

Of course, if you haven’t read any of the books, you won’t be playing in this contest. To get an idea of what you’re missing, just go to the home page and click “Books.” It seems like ages since any human bought one, let alone posted a Customer Review on amazon.com.

Hop aboard, and join the fun!


Bell Mountain Trivia Contest: Halfway!

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with a nice snack and a Bell Mountain trivia question. This’ll be Question No. 10 in the contest, which means we’re at the halfway marker.

The questions are bound to get harder from here to No. 20. Patty suggested this question today, and I thought it was just right to be No. 10. Ready? Here it is:

What is Helki the Rod’s other nickname? And if you don’t like the word “nickname,” which I don’t–What else is Helki called, besides Helki the Rod?

I want to say the winner of this contest at least wins one of the lifeboats from the Tar Princess, but Lee’s stuck on making an autographed book the prize. Humans! Guess it takes a quokka to really think big.

Oops, gotta go! The bloke with the hairy legs is eyeballing the rest of my bagel.


Bell Mountain Trivia Contest: Question No. 8

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here.

I’m about to go into Violet Crepuscular’s house for my writing lesson, but before I do, here’s the Bell Mountain trivia question that I promised you. Question No. 8:

What is the name of the Thunder King’s fortress?

A lot of the quokkas think these questions are too easy. Well, it can’t be helped! The questions are designed for humans, after all. I can safely say no human ever beat a quokka in a game of Clue. Same goes for Bell Mountain trivia.

And if you haven’t read any of Lee’s Bell Mountain books yet–well, blimey, what’re you waiting for???


Comment Contest: Only 59 to Go

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, trying to get this blog going while Lee sits in traffic–

Big news about the comment contest: only 59 to go! That’s right, 59 more comments pushes us up to 47,000, and whoever posts No. 47,000 wins an autographed copy of one of Lee’s books, he’s too cheap to offer a bicycle.

Have I mentioned the rules? Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing profanity or blasphemy; ads disguised as comments, like we couldn’t see through that; and comments just too ridiculous for words. Other than that, anything goes.

(By cracky, that man has a positive gift for getting stuck in traffic. You never see that happen here on Rottnest Island.)


Comment Contest: 163 to Go

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, and my comment contest is plodding along like a wombat hitched to a cartful of bricks–what ever made me think I could do this job???

The goal is 47,000, with 163 left to go. The winner gets an autographed copy of one of Lee’s Bell Mountain books. If you win that, and the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, you’ll become the proud owner of a ship! The good ship Tar Princess is waiting for you. All you’ll have to do is drag it off the sandbank and touch it up with a lick of paint.

Here in Oz it’s the middle of winter, although up here on Rottnest Island, it don’t get too cold. Most of us quokkas would love a chance to frolic in the snow, but fair dunkum fat chance of that!

Would you believe it–only 12 comments today? Crikey, I should’ve kept me mouth shut when they were lookin’ for volunteers to run this caper.

It’d all be so different if he’d just let me hand out a bicycle to the winner!


‘My Favorite Lines from Movies’ (2013)

See the source image

Enjoying our Sabbath rest, I like to kick back with a movie in the afternoon. My father always used to do that, although he liked to watch from a prone position on the couch and almost always fell asleep.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite lines from movies: https://leeduigon.com/2013/08/18/my-favorite-lines-from-movies/

What are some of yours?

Fun Fact: Roy Scheider’s immortal line in Jaws, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” was an ad lib! Probably the greatest single line in his whole acting career–and he came up with it himself, on the spur of the moment.
