Ron de Laat
SUPERFAN FROM HOLLAND
I was born on April 12th 1965 in a small town named Oisterwijk where I still live. In the seventees I bought the Dutch comics. I did this for several years.
The numbering of Series 12 is a bit strange it starts with 1201 and ends with 12267. The 12 is the series number. I didn't know that and in the late seventees I stopped buying the comics because I didn't see any possiblity to collect all 12000 comics.
The movies of Tarzan were only on the German television to see (in German language). This also only in the seventees.
After that I can't remember that there was a Tarzan movie on the television.
In 1991 I met my wife Maria and in 1993 we got married. We bought a house in Oisterwijk (I was living at Maria's house). For several years we did some major rebuildings on the house.
Last year (May 1st 1998) our daughter Maud was born.
As you know we have a very busy time right know. Maud doesn't sleep very much and is very active in learning all kind of things (also the things we don't like).
Besides our daughter we also have two pets (Joy our cocker spaniel dog and Pim our rabbit) They both live inside our house which give us a lot pleasure. Both our animals can't miss each other.
Since two years I have a good contact with Rob Donkers (The Tarzan fan from the Netherlands). We have twice a week contact and and share lot of info. He send me the information I need and I send him the newest fact I see on the web.
Well that's me.
