To all you Saigon Kids….if you are taking the time to read this then take the time TODAY (ok maybe tomorrow too) to scan a picture, post a comment, send an e-mail, google the name of one of the SKs – you have no idea how much that could mean to them!! I have been very fortunate to make contact again with people I have dearly missed and their e-mails have touched me deeply. SO GO DO SOMETHING PROACTIVE.
To Charles or Frank or “whoever you are today” Stoddard – thank you for the CDs and the link to the Wall.
To Ken – thanks for your travelogues – I used to live in Fussen so I love reading them.
To Mary Anne Purvis – thank you for posting your memories of the coup (5th grade right? Mrs. Zubcoff)
To the guys of the Klan, Coop and Robbie and The Wag, thanks for the e-mails – especially to you Tailwind.
And to you Wizard Bob – who for whatever reason is so culturally isolated that he doesn’t know who Harry Potter is…..and who has only seen one movie in his entire life!!!…and it happened to be Field of Dreams where the message is BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME – thanks for building this site.
And to all of you POST YOUR PICTURES. I cannot be the only one who has 29 pictures of the Saigon days. These guys made the photo gallery easy to access – and since I am digital photography knowledge impaired I KNOW. If you need advice on scanning or whatever – ask Bob – he is very helpful and most encouraging – unless of course you send him a photo of yourself in your very demure Cercle Sportif swim attire…in which case he becomes hopelessly communicative (your poor mother, Bob!) and not in a very instructive way.
And to Maile Miller, most of all, thanks for the phone call. Your kind words went a very long way.
