What makes you laugh the most? A good yarn.
If money were no object, what would you do with your time? I’m pretty well enjoying what I’m doing at the moment and as long as my health hangs out I don’t wish to travel or anything like that, I’ve been there and done that at 82 years of age and 60 years married.
Describe your dream holiday? I would like to spend a couple of months in the Kimberley.
What is a favourite childhood memory of yours? I can remember tearing down the backyard one day on the dinky and the front wheel collapsed.
