A good day at Paddy's Lagoon
It is truly amazing what you can find if you happen to ask the right person at the right time. Traveling from Cloncurry to Normanton recently I called in at Donor's Hill station and spoke to the manager there about any possible graves on the property. The m...

Day trip to the Isa
The good thing about not having a plan or timetable, is that you can do things on the spur of the moment. Today I did a one day trip to Mt Isa. It is only 121km from Cloncurry on a good road which is shared with a number of road trains, mostly four wagon si...

10am Friday the 15th, sitting in my van looking out the window on a miserable day. It has been raining all night and the weather radar shows that it is clearing, so is the caravan park. The rain is light now but there is a south-westerly blowing which makes...

What to do with those horses
Well, we can't keep them in the back yard, hang on, I know, we will put them out in the paddock. And there they stayed. No visits and the only food was what they could find, and apparently no running water. This is in a paddock opposite the Silver Wattle ca...

At the Silver Wattle Caravan Park
I arrived back at the Silver Wattle caravan park on the 29th September, 2015, when I couldn't get a spot in the free site in Emerald at two o'clock in the afternoon. It was 8pm when I arrived and although I was apprehensive about the timing, I was assured b...

Caravan Repairs in the Rockhampton area
On the 3rd of December, 2015 while I was in Mt Morgan, a storm came through in the afternoon and took the awning over the top of the van and tore one of the arms out of the top of the wall of the van. The arms of the awning were bent and this panel damage w...

Tough frog
Five nights ago I stepped out of the van and felt something squishy under my foot. I started cussing; how could something like that be up on the step leading into the van ? I lifted my foot and there was this flattened green thing, something akin to one of ...

Story
Tagline
Fell in love once, only once, when I lived in New Farm
Introduction
A childhood of mango trees,
knee high floods and
pushbikes without helmets in Cairns

Retired and look for dead people in my spare time.

Why look for dead people ?
They are usually easier to find; they tend not to move around and the tree is growing.
