Trying to straighten things out, the young man lowered his shoe box onto his wife’s bed. He admitted it was time for him to find out what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two born dolls and a large sum of money worth $ 95,000.

‘Oh,’ he says, ‘that’s the money I made from selling dolls.’ ….
