The bold window treatment gracing the home in the photograph above is made all the more compelling by the placement of a captivated angel behind the empty rocking chair. This Sloan Lake neighborhood will be spared post-Judgment Day pandemonium because a wider view of this home shows that security services are provided by angels... The angels in the photo above appear to be flanking the entryway and securing the perimeter of the home in an effort to allow the inhabitants to attain their heavenly liftoff on Judgment Day come May 21, 2011.

On the other hand, these same yard art angels also look like they might be trying to sneak away from a houseful of rapturfarians. The distance one covers on May 21, 2011 will completely depend on the height and distance of a person's leap of faith.

Below, an escaping, winged-baby angel gets trapped in the bushes... Like the innocent angels pictured above, perhaps the best way to spend this weekend's rapture is curled up and catching up on some much needed sleep.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
