Storyline

Jim agrees to look after Wanda's budgie whilst she is in hospital but, after telling his father that the bird is his, discovers that Dad, having forgotten Jim's mother's birthday, has given it to her as a surprise present. Jim bemoans its loss in the pub but fortunately Mum hates budgies and returns it to him. Less fortunately Wanda refuses to have it back since it gave her the allergy that put her in hospital and Councillor Allnutt has bought Jim another bird. Written by don @ minifie-1
