HO laughs last is HO laughs loudest~

Last laugh may be on us, as in, M. Hồ Chí Minh’s backyard~~rubies aplenty have been found~~with many more to come~~

Deep Blood Red may be the color of Communism, but it is likewise the color of RUBIES~~stones that set any girl’s heart aflutter~~Lovey had me wear red stockings and cravat~~odd in deep summer at Washington~~I’d thought~~as these Vietnamese are Communist fellas~~the red was for that bit~~but I came to find that the red stockings and cravat were redolent of rubies~~Lovey can be very single-minded~~

 

A New Vietnam awakens~Imperialism’s missed opportunities in Indochine~~Part 2~you can bet your bottom dollar that Lovey headed for Vietnam House to confer with Madame Cuong just as soon as she saw this earlier article about red, red rubies~~girls are very direct creatures when it comes to the important things in life~for instance~~large, red rubies~~

Pink Faceted Ruby from VietnamThe gem trade was stunned in the late 1980s by the discovery of rubies in Vietnam. In what surely must rank as the discovery of the century, tin and gold miners found rubies of a fine color at Luc Yen, north-west of Hanoi in 1986. Then one year later, stones of the similar color were found at Quy Chau, in Nghe An Province, west of the provincial seat of Vinh. Vietnam which had never previously been known for gemstones, suddenly found itself with what many experts believe are the two finest ruby mines in the world. Vietnamese Rubies have radiance in the dark vibrant red color and dazzling lively brilliance that take your breath away.  Most rubies are transparent and boast of a good pink to dark red color.

Girls of all nations become very best friends very quickly when there are rocks like this at stake~~

I’m fairly sure that Lovey did not read this opening article, but she certainly saw the pictures–and, in a flash!~~we were with the Cuong’s and  M. Hồ Chí Minh at Vietnam House to discuss~~Rubies~~
