I think we were all surprised to see someone move in "next door." I had certainly never thought of anywhere as being next door to Hell.

But just beyond the lakes of fire and brimstone they built a cozy little cottage. You'd think the sulfurous air would kill the grass, but of I guess even that respected the borders, because their lawn was the most vibrant green I could ever remember seeing.

They put up a fence, of course. Simple, unpainted wooden slats. Presumably so they wouldn't have to look at Hell all the time.

There's a knothole in one of the boards. We all look through it. We thought the devils would try to stop us, but I guess they figured out that we're just torturing ourselves when we do. And I guess they don't mind us doing their work for them.

It really is the most amazing lawn.

What torture! Leave it to you to come up with a story of Hell sufferers admiring a lawn! Always the inventive, you are.

I am sorry you didn't get this in, but glad I got to read it anyway.

Thanks - I feel a little silly about not noticing that the due date was a day earlier than usual. = P

I think it's happened to all of us at one time or another. Please don't let that discourage you from jumping in for the rest of the month :)
