THURSDAY 7 APRIL ADELS GROVE
The boss and her friend L were claiming it was going to rain, they wanted it to rain – heavily – and they wanted us to have to stay here! It was pleasant to feel so affirmed.
It was Flying Doctor Clinic day here. Lawn Hill Station people brought in a jillaroo who had damaged her neck in a fall from a horse. That created a minor drama and she was evacuated to Mt Isa in a full body brace.
The supply truck came in and we got some supplies we’d ordered.
O phoned again. He would be quite late getting to Hells Gate, so would overnight there and continue on next day. Good – that took the pressure off us to get up there in a rush and would make for a much better drive for us.
