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.
G’day–Byron the Quokka here. And I can’t help feeling wistful because the big 50,000-Comment Contest is over and this will be the last question, No. 20, in the Bell Mountain trivia contest. After this, I don’t know what to do with myself. Suddenly playing Clue solitaire seems kind of unexciting.
Anyhow, here it is, Question No. 20:
What legendary creature led Ryons to the banquet hall of the ancient kings of Obann?
The winner will be the reader with the most right answers out of 20, and that wise and learned individual will get an autographed book. If you have all 11 published titles so far, you can hold out for No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever–which I think will be published in March or April of next year.
I do wish there were another contest coming up…
Byron the Quokka here, to announce the winner of our milestone once-in-a-lifetime comment contest! The winner, the reader who posted No. 50,000, which will never happen again, is….trumpets, please!
“Evreilly”! (We know her as Evelyn.) Her comment came in late last night, just as we were packing it in for the day. You can find her comment attached to the post, “My Interview with Lee Strobel”–it’s a great comment, by the way. So Ev wins an official Quokka T-shirt, either in Large (very dark blue) or Extra Large (bright red). All we need from you, mate, is your mailing address: please email it, and tell us your choice of shirts.
Now watch all the comments dry up because the contest is over. I told Lee that wouldn’t happen on my watch, so I’ll have to find some way to keep things hopping.
