  2. I'm gonna miss the posts, Bud, 'specially the groceries! But I reckon you'll be glad to get home again. I 'spect you'll
    be back to RVN again, too. I enjoyed the pix, and couldn't help wondering if I'd ever met some of those lovely older ladies?

      I thought the same about the second lady up from the bottom. She's 65, speaks OK English and is 'purty too!

    go visit Angkor! You should get a gig as a tour guide. I bet that'd be great fun.
