Bob (Bobby) Garbett's mother gave him this name out of pure frustration, even bewilderment. One fine morning as she held him as a newborn in the living room, she pondered - and as she did, a 'Bobbie' (British Policeman) walked past. And the rest is, as they say, history. Bob is Father (to four) and Grandfather (to five). All his life he has been a God-botherer. Then one glorious day, Bob says "God was bothered enough and God "was done unto me". I have not been the same since and the embers are still glowing and growing". He is a marathon runner (plodder) and a 9 on the Enneagram - always ever seeking to be more integrated.
Bob resides in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
