Mystery of one theft...

The story I want to tell happened 2 week ago. It was a dark and usual night when I was preparing my car in order to go to the airport to meet my father who was coming from Moscow. My father often arrives at night flights so I'd already been used to it. I started an engine of my car and went on the way. Slowly driving through dark and gloomy streets, one strange guy suddenly attracted my attention. He was hanging around on the first floor of one old building. There were no-one standing or…

Annabel Lee.

It was many and many a year ago,

In a kingdom by the sea,

That a maiden there lived whom you may know

By the name of Annabel Lee;

And this maiden she lived with no other thought

Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,

In this kingdom by the sea;

But we loved with a love that was more than love-

I and my Annabel Lee;

With a love that…

Mr. Postman..., Where are you?

I used to wait for you, Mr. Postman...  Wait for your coming to my house. I felt so happy when you delivered a letter or postcard to me.

Hi to all optimists.

Every day brings something  funny, lovely, special in our life,

even though it's the most boring one, if you try your best to find it in your soul.

Almost everyone whom I know, these people are married, tell that they are happy,

But... Children love their parents, it's natural until they begin to think independent,

then they…
