Riding on a pony;
He stuck a feather in his cap,
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle keep it up,
Yankee Doodle dandy;
Mind the music and the step,
And with the girls be hand

Climbed up the waterspout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

My Dearest Viktoria,
I am so sorry it has taken so long to corrospond again. Every day for the last three weeks I have checked
my email, and there has been no response. I was heartbroken that perhaps something I said had caused
my closest friend to abandon me. I went through all the emontions one has in such situations. The pain
and sorrow, the pretended indifference, and finally the strength of will that I posess to move on, knowing
my sadness will pass slowly, but eventually I will feel whole again.
I decided perhaps it was not in my destiny to care about a woman again, and went back one more time to
look, and then to erase this website forever. In the process I accidently discovered that what I thought
was a blank page, was actually a very large blank part of a page, and that by scrollong down, I found you
again. I hope now, that I have not caused you to think that I no longer cared about our friendship, and
would be so cruel as to just disappear.
I had one day to do my Christmas shopping, and it is so hard. Being single is also very hard from a
financial standpoint, because I buy a gift for everybody indivually, and they in turn buy a gift for me as a
family. I took my Mother shopping today, and she, being single also, has the same dilima. Thats when a
genius thought came to my head. I proposed to my Mother that we gang up (that almost sounds criminal),
and buy presents as a team, thus cutting our cost in half, and allowing both of us such luxuries as eating a
decent meal for the next week. She agreed, and we both topped off the day with a celibritory resturant
dinner at the end of the day.
My work week has been very busy. As usual some people do not show up for work, and working a night
shift, one cannot find a replacement, one can only suck up thier chest (or belly in my case), and deal with
it. All the stores are staying open late, giving us hungry shoppers, and all those who drink too much at the
christmas parties, want to eat our tasty food on the way home. Some of them are smart enough to take a
taxi, but not most of them, and I have to say the one good thing about working the night shift, is that I do
not have to drive on the road with all those people who are so foolish as to drink and drive. I have
actually had people pass out in thier cars in the line at the drive thru window, and had to call the
parimedics to make sure they are ok.
I got really lucky on Christmas, and will not have to work Christmas EVE, or Christmas Day, and have
my 2 days off following. I will however have to work on New Years Eve. We expect such a crowd that
where I usually work by myself with two other people, my boss has asked 16 other employees to help us
out. I wish I could spend it with you, in your Country. I think it would be very enchanting. Since I
cannot, at the stroke of midnight I will raise a glass (of soda of coarse because I will be working), and
look for the brightest star in the sky. This will be in your honor because you bring a light in my life, and
perhaps on your New Year, you will also look out, and see that same star, and feel all the hopes of the
new year that I am sending you via starbeam.
I may not be able to write until next week, and by then, Christmas will be past, and the new year upon us.
I have decided for the New Year to let the setbacks of last year be gone, and start, even if slowly, to get
to where I can finally visit you. I already have some Ideas, but those are for another letter. For now I will
go, wishing you the very Merriest of Christmas's,
With Adoration,

Hello, Hugh.
It was a great surprise for me to get this letter from you. But I am really happy. You didn’t write me for
long and I though it was the end. I was so upset because I didn’t want to loose such friend and I didn’t
understand why you didn’t write me.
Have you heard what was going on in Ukraine? Have you heard about that awful snowfall? Monthly rate
of snow fell out for some hours. The city was paralyzed. I had to get home on foot. Can you imagine
almost 10 kilometers on foot and snowstorm! It was something. The roads were full of cars. Some drivers
left their cars just on the road because there wasn’t any more gasoline. I had a feeling that I found myself
in a film about catastrophe. I caught a cold and stayed in bed for some days. Fortunately, we had days off
as it was impossible to get to the shop. Tomorrow I am working at last. But today roads are covered with
ice, so I skated to the agency)))
You invented a wonderful way out. I know that it is really expensive to buy presents when you are alone.
I am happy that you will be able to celebrate Christmas well. It is great that you will have days off. I also
wish you could celebrate holidays with me. I will also think about you and look at the brightest star.
May I ask you not to delay with answers for so long time? It makes me sad.
Marry Christmas and happy New Year;)
Looking forward for your reply;)
My best wishes,
