Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up.' The man gestured, and the gate began to open. 'Can my friend,' gesturing toward his dog, 'come in, too?' the traveler asked. Tm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.' The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had beeng0ing with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book. 'Excuse me!' he called to the man. 'Do you have any water?' 'Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in.' 'How about my friend here?' the traveler gestured to the dog. 'There should be a bowl by the pump,' said the man. They went through the gate, ˘~nd sure enough, there was an old- fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. 'What do you call this ~lace?' the traveler asked 'This is Heaven,' he answered. 'The man down the road said that was Heaven, too,' the traveler said. 'Oh, you mean the place~with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell.' 'Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name llke that?' 'No, we're iust happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.' New E-Mail Virus From Harry W.
