GUEST,Lyle Banjo Patterson in National Geographic (23) RE: Banjo Patterson in National Geographic 09 Sep 04

Thanks everyone for some excellent responses. The poems of Banjo Patterson got me interested in Australia when I was about 10 years old - and that's 60 years ago!! I've always wanted to go there, but I never wanted it to be for "just a few days." I always dreamed of spending a minimum of 4 months there, and never getting closer to the ocean than 50 miles! It is (and always has been) the interior that has facinated me. And Babjo's poems are the cause of it all. Now the chances of getting there and doing what I'd like are slim and none, so I guess I'll live in my dreams.

Thanks, Bob Bolton, for your info here and on many other threads. If I ever do get down there, I'd pay you triple your daily wages just to spend the day listening to you talk about things like Banjo, the Outback, The Overflow, folk music......

But at least I have mudcat!!
