Hi Catz, I've lived in S.F for 31 years. So do Ivan & Anna, my parents. My grandparents were Alfred & Annie Iremonger, born in Blenheim & Kaikoura. I grew up in Wellington, and attended Rongotai College. My wife, Marilyn, nee Limpus grew up in Miramar. My father, Ivan attended Wellington Tech, and worked for many years after the war for John Dickinsons in Taranaki Street. We lived at 32 Hankey St., it is now a block of flats. Marilyn & me plan to spend 3 weeks in NZ mid Feb to mid March. We have 3 married daughters, Keryn, Nyrelle & Stacey. Their husbands are Mike Horwood, John Patten, and Bryce Mackin.
