Del submits a painting done by Rodney when he was fourteen to a competition and it wins a family holiday to Mallorca. Unfortunately for Rodney he must pretend to be a young school-boy for the prize to be valid so that he is separated from Cassandra and has to take part in games with all the other kiddies. He does, however, have the winning lottery ticket - but as he is 'under age' it is invalid! Written by don @ minifie-1
