It was a beautiful lamb SHANK. LINette had cooked it to perfection, and the guests began to arrive...

Unknown to Linette, though, a leak from upstairs was gradually aBRADING the dining room walls.

Linette was in the kitchen on the phone giving directions to a guest, completely unaware that the leak was growing. It was flowing across the dining room floor like a SMALL BROOK. "JUNCTION five, turn left, then left again" she said. "We're the third house on the right."

"Thanks," said the guest, a Mrs pRYDE. "ST JOHN'S ROAD anywhere near you, is it?"

"Yes," Linette said, "just past the cemeteRY. DEE'S PLAN, A DEcidedly clever one, is to... oh no! Gotta dash; we're in trouble! Dee!" she shouted to her husband, (for that was his name...), "there's a load of water on the dining room floor! Call the plumber, quick!"

Well I can't do it cleverly, but...

"Sorry," continued Linette, "what did you want for dessert, Mrs pRYDE? PIE?"
"R. HEAD, the plumber, will be round shortly," said Dee.

And they came and fixed the leak, and the guests all had a very enjoyable dinner. The End. :)

Nice that we did the stations in order - it wasn't intentional on my part!

Not the most dramatic of endings, I must admit...

But then, that's real life for you. Only stories tend to make sense...
