I was born in Rainbow in 1936. I was in the Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Service for 33years. I then retired back to Rainbow. I have 3 sons, the youngest ofr which has a cattle station in the NT, where I go to visit for 3 months in winter each year to operate his bulldozer and do general station work. My hobbies are landscaping and developing my disused grain silo as a garden home here in Rainbow. My passion for landscaping and especially succulents has inspired the design of this bat.
