Lynda's not happy that her llama Constanza has eaten the wonderful Peace roses which she was planning to enter in the Flower and Produce Show.

Ray's had an idea for a Mexican themed evening. He isn't dissuaded by Lynda and Ian's reservations that it isn't in keeping with the ethos of Grey Gables. Ray's going to offer a free margarita for the brave souls who attend in fancy dress!

The evening of the St. Stephen's concert has finally arrived and the team has sold the last of the tickets. Luckily, there haven't been too many grumbles about cellist Simone not being able to perform. The replacement plays a beautiful, moving rendition of The Swan.

During the interval, Neil and Susan chat about Darrell. Jazzer spotted him sleeping in the bus shelter. They're both worried about Darrell's mental and physical state. It's great they've raised so much for the organ repairs, but maybe the church should perhaps spend its money helping people like Darrell.

Ian and Lynda catch up. Lynda didn't have the energy to go to the concert as there seems so much to do. She's just had another directive from Ray who wants her to put an advertisement for the Mexican night in the local papers, and to rustle up some posters. They can't escape Ray's wild plans. Like it or not, he's the boss.
