The blanks are to be filled in with words from the following word list.  Each person or group takes turns reading one word from his list – in order – no skipping around.  The word list should be on cards so they can be reused.

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 patched with ___ and ___.

As they drove along, Miss Bingley pointed to the side of the road.  “Oh, look at that bush with the ___ and the ___ growing on it.”  “Let’s stop here”, said Miss Arbuckle.  They carried the basket to some shade cast by ___ and spread ___ 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 ___ 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 them 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 engines,” 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, and drove happily home again.
