'Pension Day, everyone from all around, outstations, homelands, come in on tractor with trailer, all come in early, waiting for them to open the shop, so they can go in. Now they all gotta food, everything in plastic bags. New days, new houses built [right]. We had power. Normal day, people walking around and talk with people, telling story. Lots of noise, chatter, and all the papa [dogs] and tjitji [kids] playing round. All the cars cruising round. Young men, they all got lots of bicycles too. Some want to go to creek for picnic, some might be don't want to. Tjitji might be play marbles, something like that. Clinic still small tin shed, not modern clinic. People come in to store to buy food. That's all in my mind now.' Titjikala is a remote Indigenous community 130 km south of Alice Springs where Doris lived for many years before moving to Alice Springs for health reasons.
