Hey Bill! 

You look exactly how I imagined you would (except with darker hair)! Nice 
house, too. My only complaint is that I'm 18 years younger than you and still 
can't score a wife as hot as yours!  I love Thailand. I've been to Bangkok and 
Ko Chang a number of times. I'm probably going again after xmas to visit my 
friend who does muay thai in Chang Mai. Does your wife have any sisters? Mike.

You asked:
>I am curious as to why Thailand though? Are you working there or retired?

It's a long and winding road.  I happen to be on the Thailand section of the
road now.

I came here about 6 or 7 years ago on a consulting engagement.  At that time
I was living on a sailboat near Mobile, Alabama and was thinking about
sailing leisurely down through the Caribbean for a couple years and
eventually relocating in Brazil.  I'd worked in Brazil in the past and liked
it a lot.  While working in Bangkok I made several trips to Koh Samui (an
island off the extreme southeastern tip of Thailand in the Gulf of Siam) to
a friend-of-a- friend's small beach resort located there.  I liked Koh Samui
a lot so after my consulting engagement I decided to live there for 6 months
or so to give it a try.  I did, and found I liked it a lot (I tend to like
everywhere I live a lot), so arranged to dispose of my boat and relocated to
Koh Samui.  While living in Koh Samui I met the woman who is now my wife.
We were married about 5 years ago.  Soon after we married we moved from Koh
Samui to mountains in the northeastern part of Thailand, where my wife was
from originally.  We now live there.

I describe myself 'semi-retired' .  I still do some consulting.  I like to
work about 4 to 6 months a year.  I work mainly in Southeast Asia, India and
Australia, but will go wherever I find an interesting opportunity.
