Em, the car wont start - looks like we may have to all bunk up in the car, way out here in the middle of the cold arabian/welsh desert. Not much fun for pregnant women or donkeys. I feel for sheep 3, poor chap.

*Gets out of car and lifts the bonnet (hood for the US contingent)*

Right what have we here?

Dipstick - oil level. Could do better

Spark plugs - dry

Radiator - hot, very hot but has water

*Rolls up sleeves and reaches into engine*

Hmmm, yes. Afraid so! [Big Grin] (oops, meant to say [Embarrassed] [Angel] )

I think we may be stuck here for the night.
Maybe in the morning the Fairy Godmother could walk into Bethlehem to fetch help.

# Throws stereo on to keep spirits up #

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an uptown girl
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice ...

Not another flaming synopsis

More rhyming couplets I can't think
So for the story follow this link.

But here's the gist of last night's plot.
Mary hit the road, but Joseph did not.

Mary went off upon a donkey
At this point the plot went wonkey

She got a lift with a naughty boy
To make better time her cunning ploy.

But his car has broken down
On the way to Bethlehem town.

The story's gone right off the rails.
It seems Bethlehem's a town in Wales!
