Entry 36: Lucy pulls one out of the hat

Glad tidings. Lucy has done the MC magic. One Joseph has, surprise surprise, decided that Mary is the one for him, up the spout or no.

Better still, Lucy seems to have eased them out of town on the pretext of some census or other, and away from her zealous family so there is some prospect that phase two can proceed with less drama than phase one. I think the Ghost has got the message at last, ref "low key". Entourage last seen heading in the direction of Bethlehem with the Ghost in hover mode. Can't let go of his biological experiments, it seems, until they have come to fruition. Propably wants to see if the boy does actually have two heads.

Mrs G still whingeing on about getting the lad back home. The trouble, alas, is that "embedded" as he is in a biological entity, he is there for the duration, which is to say, for the course of its natural life. This she seems reluctant to accept. "Organise a miscarriage" she says.

Honestly! Ethics and all that. Please.

You are, as always, too kind. I feel that I am letting the side down on the posting front, just so much on the critical path at the moment. But I'm sure there is a tunnel and I'm sure there is light at the end of it.
