Merlin thought to himself "what the heck is he doing here at midnight? ah well never mind he's bringing me gifts) He helped to lug the big, heavy box into his stately manor, as he crow barred the lid from the box...........

This thread is somewhere between a stitch-up and a cock-up :LOL:

Just don't ask me to make sense of it or fix it, it's up to you members to get things back on track.
