Dear Genners,

Please help me translate the Hebrew phrase in the sentence below:

He would tell drawn out stories, like a novel in the newspaper,
and with the <hey pey yud -- ayin nun dalet> like in the movies in
Tevchik Yaffa's movie theater.
Dear Susan,

Actually it's not a Hebrew phrase at all, , it's simply two English
words written in Hebrew characters because the writer is writing in
Yiddish. Here the letters heh peh yod ayin nun dalet are simply
spelling out the words "Happy End" in the movies......
