Storyline

Over Laura's strong objections, Rob insists on keeping an early morning golfing date despite damp, wet conditions -- on the same day as a dinner party Laura is having for her relatives. Then as he begins to feel sicker and sicker, Rob must put on a positive face for the party rather than admit she was right that he should have skipped the golf game. Written by aldanoli
