to Roy-Mark.Com. I created this site in the summer of 2002 for
several reasons. The reason that I usually give is that I wanted
to establish a means of communication with family and friends around the
world. Additionally, but rarely stated was my desire to learn how
to accomplish that feat. In the process, I learned that the
learning process is ongoing.
Through this website I have made contact with family members
scattered around the country. The emails have come in from
Alabama, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi,
Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington State
and Washington D.C.
Numerous old friends too have found this site and sent emails. It
is always a pleasure opening an email from a long lost friend or
I retired from Atlantic Richfield
Indonesia Inc., (ARCO) at the end of 1993. I began
retirement by staying on in Jakarta, Indonesia for one year. Since
then, I returned to Plano, Texas for two and a half years; back to
Jakarta for two years; Yogyakarta, Indonesia for two years; and now
fourteen years in Chiang Mai,
Thailand. Retirement has been, and continues to be fun!
I grew up
in Louisiana, but most of my working years were spent in other
states or countries. The places where I spent the most time are: New
Orleans; Houston; Plano, Texas; Jakarta, and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I
moved from Yogyakarta to Chiang Mai in 2001.
years I visited 28 countries in South America, Europe, the Middle East,
and Asia. One of those countries, South Vietnam,
no longer exist; Hong Kong has returned to China; and the Indonesian Province
of Timor Timur (East Timor) is now
the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste.
To all of
my friends and acquaintances who may find this site, I bid you a hardy
"Selamat Datang" and "Sawasdee Krup" (Welcome).
for your visit.
Ya'll come back real soon
