Sentence: Ova D. Topp loved looking down over the cosmos of cornyments she had created. Near the curb were the worms, caterpillers and fish. Next was a terrace of teradactyls and T-Rex's. Above them were the gnomes and fairies, separated by a bridge (underneath were the trolls) which led to deer, swans and toadstools. Closest to her throne on the porch were statues of a little girl reading, a boy fishing, a mermaid, a trio of angels and Athena, a Greek goddess. The only disturbance to her sight were the two For Sale signs on her neighbors' lawns which never went away.
