One fine day, two little old ladies decided to drive out of town for a picnic. Miss Bingley loaded a basket with ______________, _____________, and ____________________ and other tasty things. Then they drove off with their lunch in an old car that belonged to Miss Arbuckle. The cap on the radiator was decorated with _________________ and the holes in the roof had been painted with__________________ and _____________________.
As they drove along, Miss Bingley pointed to the side of the road. "Oh, look at the bush with the ________________ and the _______________ growing in it." Let's stop here, said Miss Arbuckle. They carried the basket to some shade cast by ______________ and spread out ____________ to sit upon. Nearby, ________________ sang gaily in a tree and some low bushes had _________________ and ____________________ growing on them. The two friends were having a wonderful time. There's nothing so delicious as __________________ with mustard and relish, said Miss Arbuckle, as she brushed the crumbs off her lap with _________________. "Yes," sighed Miss Bingley, "However, it is getting late." "Maybe we'd best start for home now.
But their car refused to go. The motor made a noise like _____________ and then stopped. "Oh dear!" said Miss Arbuckle, looking under the hood. "I think I see ________________ and _______________ caught in the gears." "Impossible," said Miss Bingley. "Are you sure the tank isn't empty?" "Are you sure you put enough _________________ in before we left home?" "Of course I did," said Miss Arbuckle. It must be the wheels. We'll jack them up with _________________ and ________________ and then replace with __________________ and __________________." She covered her dress with __________________ and took _______________ to loosen the bolts. Just then a farmer drove up and asked if he could help the ladies. "Looks like _________________ in the engine," he said, tightening a bolt with _________________. Then he stepped back and the car started. "I just connected the _______________ to the __________ , which had rattled loose. The two old ladies gave him the rest of their __________ and to show their appreciation, they gave him _______________ and drove happily home again.
