Winter 2018, Somewhere in Western Queensland after too many kilometres
“Oh shit, here we go again, another ‘iPad entertainer’!” we moan.
To be honest, sometimes it’s just karaoke with a seriously bad singer. We sneak off to cook dinner wondering why ukuleles get such a bad rap.
Footnote: Anyone who’s stayed in the outback over winter will tell you that entertainment can be a lottery. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and find a singing cattleman with golden tonsils who will elevate your evening to heaven. Then on the night that you want to enjoy the stillness of a quiet evening beside a river far, far from anywhere…some bloke who thinks that he’s Elvis pulls up beside you and bellows like a cow on heat for three bloody hours.
