Now at Tambo


Long drive today up to Tambo which is on the Landsborough Hwy 200k south of Barcaldine, the birth place of the Australian Labor Party during the great shearer’s strike in the 1890s (? to check). Roma and the countyside around is full of these bottle trees, they are not Boabs. One could take endless series of photos of these, they are all different shapes and sizes and one can see different expressions in the knobs and bumps on the trunks. A political cartoonist could find all sorts of likenesses I’m sure.

Sat down tonight for a plate of chillie con carne and all the trimmings outside the Imlay’s van and intoduced them to Percival the pig (Percy for short) which is our van animal and whilst it makes a noise it doesnt eat anything  or make small deposits. The girl’s (Imlay’s animals do) were a bit perplexed by Percy. I will have a photo of Percy for you on the next entry.


Who does this look like?
