The Ratrace almost catches up with Tom and Barbara
20 August 2006 | by (Coventry, England) – See all my reviews

Tom and Barbara come up with the rather novel idea of enrolling in night school to learn specialist skills for the more demanding jobs around the home.

With Margo in tow, Barabara tries her hand at pottery, although even after Jerry buys her a wheel, a kiln all the other pottery making paraphernalia, Margo leaves in a huff after only one lesson, due to the attitude of the instructor.

Tom tries his hand at weaving with disastrous results, and when he sees Barbara's equally appalling efforts at pottery, the decision is made to swap classes to see if either of them fair any better.

Barbara excels at weaving, and Tom suddenly finds himself an artist in demand, as two of his goblets he made specially for Margo's Birthday attract the attention of established artist and new neighbour, Mrs. Weaver.

Soon Tom is using Margo's now redundant pottery equipment, to accept commissions from members of the public eager to own an original Tom Good objet d'art.

With money now pouring in and Tom and Barbara paying people to do the jobs around the home they themselves set out to learn, they seem blissfully unaware of the rat race creeping up behind them threatening to envelope them once more.

Will they escape the trappings of success in time to continue living their Good Life?
