More InformationOckie is a retired Professor from The University of Queensland, where he was Head of the School of Integrative Systems. After "retirement" he had more work than ever before (see his signature below) and while working from home (which can be any place where there is WiFi) he has decided he will try again to retire when he is 108. ("Retiring at 70 didn't work). He loves gardening, grows their own vegetables and brags (with confidence) to have the best garden in the street wherever he lives.
Annerine, his wife of 46 years, also worked at UQ in the Forestry Division. When Ockie retired she became a hands-on grandmother, looking after the two youngest of our seven grandchildren. We have three children, two daughters and a son and all married - our eldest daughter to a Swiss and we therefore have free accommodation in one of the most expensive countries in the world!. Our son is married to a girl from London and is Managing Director of Outback Tour Services. Our youngest daughter is a qualified Chef that had her own restaurant in Adelaide. She currently is the Centre Chef at an early learning centre in Hobart. She is married to an Australian. One can imagine that Christmas at our house looks like a United Nations meeting!
We have a very well behaved English Cocker Spaniel, Alfie, with a pedigree that any non-royal would be jealous of. Unfortunately, his elite line was snipped short after Annerine decided she does not want him to walk around....he luckily did not know or understood what happened to him, so he is a very happy and friendly doggy. He grew up with other dogs and loves their company.
We are landlords of three investment houses on the mainland and are very much aware of what is expected from people who live in our properties. When Ockie retired from UQ, they moved to Adelaide on invitation of the Business School at the University of Adelaide. Because this would have been a short stay we decided to rent a house in the Penfold Estate. After only two inspections by the property management company, the landlord decided that no inspections will be required in the future. Our house was always spotlessly clean and where Annerine has been, one can do open heart surgery anywhere on the floor or surfaces of the house!
We love animals, gardening, travel, meeting new people, experiencing new places, nature - WE LOVE LIFE
