...Stressed to the Max...
'I remember Dad blowing out one night. Stressed to the max. Politically things...well, this was a taxing time and he lost it. And he was just breaking things in the house almost trashed the house. And I know now what was going on - the political climate in Townsville at the time was the big blow out - but at the time I didn't know what was going on, gone mad or something.'
