On a stormy night in 1970, there was a house in the middle of nowhere. A long time ago there was man named Wally Bell who built a big log house. He never believed in chainsaws, so he used an axe to chop down wood to build his house. When Wally was finished chopping wood he put his axe in a little compartment in the ceiling where nobody could find it.

One day when Wally came home there was a tall man with a black bag coming out the door. He told Wally “Your house is not safe to live in,” but Wally said, “ I don’t care and who are you?” I am Axle Boardman, the house inspector. “Get off my property!” said Wally. The strange man went to the road and hitchhiked a ride.

One night as Wally tried to go to sleep, he heard strange noises from the ceiling. Then Wally got up and went downstairs to watch TV. He was shocked when he looked up and saw that the compartment with the axe was open, and nothing in there. Then all of a sudden the ceiling collapsed on him. Some say when you drive by you can still hear him screaming.
