The House Is Shaking!

"Linda, Linda wake up! Wake up, the house is shaking!"

"What? What? What is it dear?" Linda asked as she was rudely awakened from a sound sleep. To say she was annoyed at being awoken was putting it mildly. After all she was dreaming about her favorite actor and just hated to be awoken from that.

"The house is shaking. Can't you feel it?" Linda's dear husband responded.

"Well, I can NOW!" Linda responded as she was getting out of bed.

"What is going on, dear? Is it an earthquake?" her husband asked.

"How would I know, dear. You just woke me up. It can't be an earthquake. We live in New England for goodness sakes. When was the last time there was an earthquake here?" Linda barked back.

"Well, you don't have to be so snippy. Actually New England does have earthquakes. The last one was back in the 1950's. I'm concerned about the house falling down from all this shaking. Don't tell me you can't feel THAT!" Linda's husband said.

"I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, dear. You're right. THE HOUSE IS SHAKING!" Linda said as she stood in the middle of their bedroom. "It seems to be coming from The Dollie Storage Room. Oh, Lord! What are the dollies doing now?"

"I'm telling you, Linda that those dolls are going to destroy this house. If they do and we have to move then they are all going to a storage shed. I will not move into another house just to have it destroyed by dollies!" he responded.

"Okay! Okay, dear! Calm down! The house is not going to fall down and we are not going to move." Linda replied. She wanted to say "and the dollies aren't going into a storage facility, but she knew that her husband was in no mood to start arguing about that.

She had to admit that her husband was "really, really good" about housing all 1,496 dolls and putting up with all their antics. She even thought he was starting to like them. If they destroyed the house he wouldn't like them one bit. That's for sure. So, she had to find out what they were doing now and put a stop to it.

As she headed to "The Dollie Storage Room" she decided she'd better grab onto to something or she'd fall down. The shaking was getting so intense that she could barely stay on her feet. It took a few minutes, but she finally got her hand on the knob of door to "The Dollie Storage Room." She turned the knob and opened the door.

Stay tuned..........
