I send to you and your family my best wish from my heart.
Sorry I haven't written for a while. I hope every things are going well. My computer had break down, I think maybe the water absorbent when typhoon come in. But now all is OK.
I just come back from a Scout Training Camp for four days in West High Land (Ban Me Thuoc province). This camp site is beautifull, but so far from my place, (about over 400 kilometer). I send for you some pictures of this camp site.
My house and my restaurant already fixing before Christmas. Big thank for every thing you do for me and my family. We never forget it.
How about you and your family? I wish the God always bless to you and your family?
About one more month we will have the TET holiday (Luna New Year). To the Vietnamese people Luna New Year is very sacred. This is the time when family members together make food and incence offering on the family altars to commemorate their ancestors and the God. This is also the time for people to visit their neighbours, their friends and relatives. During the first day of TET (This year is 17 FEBRUARY), any visitor who is the first visitor to one's house to offer Tet greeting would be considered as the first visitor for the year. They belie their good or bad luck would have a strong effect on the house owner's business success for the coming year. TET days are always regarded as a perfect time for people to enjoy traditional food such as "banh chung" (you can see in any Vietnamese community in America), a square-shaped sticky rice cake, the fragrance of which alone could strongly provoke one's sense of nostalgia for TET.
I remember the TET 1969 in TAN AN, before I go home for Tet, but no had money, and Fred O. Wheeler open my black beret for every body to subseribe for me. After that, I have over $100 for Tet.
Now, I very like you stay here with us in TET for big drunk and do some stupid thing.
Goodbye my old Ranger.
Your old friend
