An Armchair Floated by…(Part 1)

The recent flooding of our quaint and romantic Main Street in Ellicott City, reminded me of a short story I wrote forty years ago in Romania. I am presenting it here in its English translation in two parts (the first one today, and the second next Monday). The collection of short stories in which it appeared in Romania was called One Morning and One Afternoon. Included with the second part will be a picture of the river described in the short story.

One Morning and One Afternoon
