How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here? I am born and bred, which means I pretty well know just about everyone and it is a good feeling to know who people are.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I am retired, but I help my son with plastering jobs, although the pay is not very good… I am still on the Elvis committee and my portfolio is the Wall of Fame.
What do you do to unwind in your spare time? I love antique motorcycles and cars. I own a 1926 MG, 1928 Model A Ford, a1951 Holden and several motorcycles. I organise the Parkes Antique Bike Rally.
What are you really good at? I fiddle with old vehicles and get them going.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? To know then what I know now.
What is your pet hate? I don’t like political and event posters left around the countryside when events are over. I don’t like vandalism.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. We went to America for about three weeks when our kids were four and seven. Unfortunately we never got to Graceland, but did end up naming our business Gracelands… and that was where the idea for the Elvis Festival was born in 1993!
