Story: Old Pat, he was born around Bundella somewhere, he was a full blood Aborigine and he used to play with his dogs, he loved dogs. I often thought about it, an old man him getting sent to Woorabinda, I wonder if he went back to see his country, Bundella I often think, Old Pat would be thinking of them old fellas who died before him. I'm glad I lived long enough for me to see, I only saw him for about five minutes and my father often spoke of him. He was supposed to be one of my grandfather's idols.
