Dinky, the world famous piano playing and singing dingo from Stuart's Well

Jump to last reply

hello to all of my australian friend's

while i was in australia for 5 weeks not long after the millennium. my ex and i encountered the entertaining Dinky. many of you on this site thought i was hallucinating, but i was eventually able to find a link from your ABC of an interview that Dinky gave them.

one of you kindly sent the news ( again from the ABC) that Dinky had retired partially due to arthritis ( i can sympathize). whomever sent the article to me did not include their name or a note. i 'm guessing it was johnj_au. if it was thank you. if it was someone else here thank you!

i have very fond memories of the time john, my ex and i spent in your country. the hospitality of many of you was tremendous. johnj and his wife visited my ex john and i in santa fe , new mexico where i lived before immigrating to Canada 8 years ago. i am a permanent resident now and my full citizenship application is on a pile in our Sydney which is in Nova Scotia.

Here i was visited by Robin and the wonderful and sadly missed Neil Cammack.

I have the air miles to return to Australia. i would like to explore the west coast of your fabulous island continent. i only lack someone to travel with and experience it.

cheers,
to you all from Canada's Victoria across the wide blue ocean from you
