Windorah pub

If any one goes out to Windorah, can you please take a photo of the air-conditoining set up in the pub, its a beauty and I wish I had got a photo of it when I was there. Can you please post it up here.
Thanks

I heard Merv the blind mechanic from the servo retired. He's a top bloke, he helped me out a few years ago with a stuffed rear diff in my Landcruiser. Windorah's a top place!

Bought fuel from Merv last year on the Birdsville trip. Amazing seeing him measure the notes against his "scale" to tell what they are when you pay him.

Sharp as a tack too!

If your ever at the pub and see a older gent with pearly white teeth and a gravely voice named Sandy, buy him a beer and listen to some of the best yarns you will ever hear from a man born and bred on the channel country. Sandy Kidds family has been around those parts for over 110 years , he's a walking encyclopedia. He used to have a pet razorback that you could put your feet up on as a foot rest in his lounge room Honest John.

Last time I saw old Sandy he wasn't so well and he's not allowed to fly his plane any more

Looks like a three point turn with a good LSD or somebody forgot to unlock their rear diff.

He was still serving fuel in September after OCR. Doesn't do any more mechaniking though. His missus is not happy!! She now has to do that work.

I listened to an interview with Merv on ABC radio last week and he has pulled up stumps on the servoand retired.
Does anyone know if the servo will still be operating??
