Storyline

Relations between Patrick and Victor reach an all-time low after Victor buys some horse manure which turns out to be contaminated,from a man in a long black coat, and Patrick sends a health inspector round. Victor's mistaking Patrick's ginseng capsules for suppositories doesn't help either but the pregnant Pippa and Margaret are great friends and Pippa gives Margaret a jar of herbal tea to help her sleep. When Victor finds Nick Swamey,the Meldrews' other neighbour,in the kitchen,holding the jar and discussing his grandma's cremation,he assumes her ashes are in the jar and,when he accidentally,drops them,replaces them with burnt paper. Margaret,knowing no different,makes him a relaxing cup of tea with the jar's new contents. Written by don @ minifie-1
