Storyline

Del is having health problems - stomach aches - and the usual cash flow problem, so, to raise money, he organizes a series of séances run by Albert's psychic friend Elsie, who correctly predicts Marlene's pregnancy. When Elsie tells him his mother wants him to go to the doctor about his pains Del reluctantly agrees and ultimately finds he has Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which is not life threatening but requires a very strict health food diet. This is not really to his liking but a bigger shock comes when Rodney tells him he and Cassandra are getting married. Written by don @ minifie-1
