I never got the spelling down either, just mostly spoke it. tieng (speak?) Toi tieng titi............ For about 20 years when I got home, I did not think about it. When we moved here about 17 years ago there was a little market the owner were Num Viet. I can order some things at a restaurant, Pho So mo, Number One soup. As they say, Zin loi. Dialect that I mostly dealt with was bac biet. We were on the D.

I had some friends who where in CAP. South of Da Nang.

You guys were way to serious. I can tell you I was not near that sofisticated. A little Vietnamese a little hellen keller sign language and a few grunts could do a fellow wonders. Then again I was the ugly american.

Out financial adviser speaks Viet, I lost my ear for it. Sort of like a song my brother in-law taught me on the guitar, many years later it is something else and not as good as what he taught me.
