The Camp


The mates are all fishing and doing alright
They've hooked up a Codfish or two
The coals are all glowing the camp ovens hot
There's a bit of camp cooking to do

They are laughing and joking and mucking about
And are sitting down sipping on beer
There's Willy and Wazza and Camperbear to
All happy bout camping out here

There's Rob and he's wearing a battered old hat
And Mikel is setting up digs
The mateship and friendship is just everywhere
And you would'nt be dead now for Quids

But I see now that this camp is all in my mind
Course the camp oven cook wandered by
With his Furhpy camp oven a swinging in hand
And a gleam and a twinkle in eye

He was tramping along with a lot on his mind
Followed cloaely by television crew
The cameras were rolling while he mixed up his dough
And he cooked up a real bushies stew

The alarm just went off and I get out of bed
To get dressed for my day on the job
And I saddle up horses while they sniff and they stamp
Then I call for my trusty old dog

And I wonder in passing as I quite often do
What would happen if all this was true
A day in the bush with all of your mates
And a feed from a camp oven to

Furphy

& these days you ride an iron horse(s).   We've seen a pic of the iron horse, can we see a pic of the dog?

Yep, that'd be something, time around the camp fire with select good company. A cardboard cask and a slab or two and someone cooking up something in Derek's 15" Furphy, er, not big enough ? Okay I'll bring one of my 20"( truck rim) ovens, LOL. Mikel knows his way around an oven so I'll volunteer him to knock a feed together. Now that would be a day to remember !   pd
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd
