Unable to Beer It
Mount ISA, Saturday,
The 12-months-old beer strike is over, but beer is still one shilling a pot, which means that for 12 dusty, dreary months Mount Isa has thirsted in vain. But today Mount Isa is intent on celebrating last Christmas in fitting manner, for the town still has vivid memory of a cheerless day nine months ago, when nothing but tepid water assuaged a burning thirst.

PAYPAL BAR TIP
If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small 'bar tip' here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
