Rachel - born Jan 19, 2009

Grandchildren:

Not yet.

My twins turn 11 years old in 2020. So grandkids are still not even a gleam in my kids’ eyes yet.

Comments:

What have I been up to since 1970?

For the most part, these matters are best kept strictly between my confessor and me, but apart from that ...

1970-1975: college and grad school (UT Austin)
1975-1977: employed at University of Texas, Austin
1977-1980: law school, UT Austin
1980-2018: employed as an attorney for "Big Oil". About half of my career was spent living outside the USA, mostly in Indonesia but including a few years in England, Singapore and Angola.

I've been married from time to time.

My wife, Rahmawati, gave birth to twins, Rachel and Rafael, in January 2009. Ever since then I have been thanking my lucky stars that life is so wonderfully unfair because, after the way I have misbehaved all my life, there is no way in the world I deserve the beautiful family I have now.

Other interests (that I will admit to) include photography and using Harley Davidson motorcycles to annoy sophisticated urbanites enjoying their morning coffee at peaceful, sidewalk cafes and to frighten cattle in their rural pastures.

In April 2013 we finally made it back to Montgomery County, Texas.

If you've ever been to the Houston area, you will understand when I say that "hills" are a very subtle concept around here. During the Hurricane Harvey floods we discovered that our neighborhood is on what passes for a hill around here.

Lucky us!

School Story:

Did I ever go to school?

I do recall once saying to a classmate whose mammalian characteristics I found particularly intriguing that "my DNA would like to party with your DNA."

My left ear rang and my face smarted for about 3 hours after that.

I interpreted her response as "no, thank you."

What did you do right after high school?

I hid out in college until I got tired of being destitute all the time, then I graduated and went to work.

Favorite music and performers:

Although I could rattle off lots of musicians, bands and singers when I was in high school, at this point in my life I would struggle to list 3 currently performing bands, musicians or singers.

Now that I’m retired, I’ve started a new gig.

It’s what I always really wanted to be.

So far, my kids are falling for it.
