Following Yonder Star ….. Should Have Used Sat Nav Instead....

As I left The Lovely Lisa C in Thomas Cook on Saturday afternoon, I was greeted by a very bizarre sight, even by Wolverhampton standards …!
018It appears that three kings of an Orient type nature, riding camels,  had traversed afar from the beaten track, taking in the odd field and fountain, moor and mountain by following a yonder star (and not the more reliable method of SAT NAV), and had suddenly realised that the likelihood of  Baby Jesus being born in Primark, Wolverhampton on a busy Saturday afternoon in the run up to Christmas was very unlikely, despite it’s westward leading …..!Camels in Wolverhampton Town CentreI didn’t know whether to bow deeply in veneration, offer to hold their Frankenstein or tell them to pop into Thomas Cook, which I had just left,  where I was sure that the staff could offer them an ample refreshment of mince pies and mulled wine (or tea if they preferred),  while advising them as to the best package to get them to Bethlehem,  as they were well off beam!
We Three Kings in WolverhamptonBut,  before I had the opportunity to proffer them such information they were off again at quite some pace ….. obviously still proceeding and guided by their slightly shonkey, in my opinion, …..  not quite perfect light!

Who would have expected that? Did they confuse "The Orient" with "Leyton Orient" when they looked at Google maps?
Mrs.D and I rode camels at Easter in Egypt. It is difficult to hang on when they are getting up and down.
