G'day Ukesters,
I'm doing a tour of nursing homes in outback Australia.
I do 1000kms each week in a circuit of towns, bringing fun, laughter and old songs to the Elders. I have my little Black Bear koa concert and a bag of tricks with me - but it gets a bit lonely out here!
Just wanted to let you know that I check in to UU several times a day on my IPad to see what all you crazy guys are raving on about.
Keep it up!! - it keeps me sane......

...."a little madness to be free"......

Well it is certain you are doing something well worth while.

Rave? Rave? Do we Rave? Crazy? Crazy? Hmmm, thought it was a prerequisite. :smileybounce:

Great stuff Strumdaddy! What a fabulous part of Australia. I spent a couple of years jackerooing at Currawinya Station, Hungerford in the 70s! I'll always have fond memories for that SW Qld grazing country and the wonderful characters that I got to know there. Enjoy it mate, it doesn't get much better!

Good on ya mate, keep on injecting a little fun into the tyranny of distance that country folk have yo live with here in Oz.

They havn't had any good rain out Walgett/Bourke way for 2 years.... They don't bother putting in crops, the stock is sold off, I don't know how they keep going! Still, people are friendly and easy-going...
Last time I was out here was in January when it got to 49 degrees (Celsius), it's much easier now in winter.
