We didn't hear from the old friend. Maybe he shows up tomorrow.
The headache pixie has visited my head.
I will scare it away with a couple of cold beers.
Anyone around? You can talk too, Mr or Mrs Lurker.
I'll talk to you mate!
Your thoughts about an old friend. I have one who coincidentally telephoned me from the community of Yuendumu in the Tanami desert where me and 'true
love spent a couple of years. Hadn't heard or seen him (apart from on the news) for over seven years. A lovely man of good even temperament, solid
heart and a brother to me.
We lost contact when I moved from the Northern Territory to where I am now in New South Wales. I tried many times to resume contact. Well, out of
the blue he rang and we laughed a almost cried about our times and adventures in the heart of Australia. He is living back at Yuendumu and I hope I
can get him on a plane to come and visit us as he is part of our family. Some pics of him.
That's him with a spear poking the tyre of a car that I, in the 1st episode of the series, small couple of seconds role, handed over to the 'bush
mechanics.' The car is in Melbourne now as a musuem piece. He produced and was the inspiration for the 'hit' series.
Another pic of Francis Jabarula Kelly from Episode 1.
That is one of the cars I tested and drove and registered for 'on road' from the last episode in the series.
I had short cameos in 2 episodes and was pleased to have my name in the credits. My 15 minutes of fame so to speak. Part of Australian Aboriginal
history. He was a fantastic tracker and hunter. He helped me tracking when we searched for evidence of 'Bradley Murdoch' in the Tanami desert, later
convicted for the murder of 'Peter Falconio'. A significant murder case in the Northern Territory. Many old stories of those desert bush days.
Francis went on to direct and help produce small movies and other small news worthy events. "The Conniston Massacre" comes to mind.
That said, me 'True Love' and the 'tin lids' (kids) all love him and think of him as a legend.
There you go mate. I'm not lurking anymore.
