Word count:  98

Linda brought every single lamp out calmly, and set them down carefully. They were Roger’s lamps; part of his “household” collection. They had gathered dust along with a variety of stools, hat stands and cat ornaments. Roger was away this weekend, at some antique show so Linda took the opportunity to do some purging.
