Thank you, one and all for taking the time to read and share your comments. You've all made my day! I definitely understand how easy it is to miss something given all the postings that materialize in a 24 hour period, so no apologies necessary. Part Three? It's a possibility… depends on whether God can cease sneezing before that final blast.
If you will indulge me, I would like to acknowledge my inspirational sources for these two pieces. First of all, thanks to Harlan Ellison who wrote something titled the "Chocolate Alphabet from A to Z." Where the letter "Q" stood for a demon who did just what was described in "Satan's Snow." I read it all of some 20 years ago and it has always stuck with me as a very funny situation. If you ever come across this selection of short stories I highly recommend them. Secondly, I give thanks to the humor of George Carlen with a routine that stated: "The guy we think of as God is only third in command." Thus, the whole notion of God and Satan being less than supreme, having a mom, and being brothers. Sort of a Cain and Able thing.
I would also like to thank all of you who reside within these poetic halls for have provided the inspiration to create and the courage to present those creations. I bow to you and yours in humble gratitude.
