I am still my- Meouwmy's- Beloved....

Dear Catster Cat....I had a little 'cat book' published last year about MEEEEEE...!!!....is there any way that 'The Diary of Grandad Conrad The Magnificent and Revolting' could elbow its way into the conference somewhere? The Meouwmy and I would be happy to sit right at the back......!! Have to say that Miss Janea knows me and can vouch for me......Halloooooo...!! Miss Janea....

Well, just a thought....I (the Great, Magnificent and Revolting Grandad) would be happy, anyway, to distribute a few mousepies to all concerned, to make the conference go with a 'zing'....(best mousepies in the known world)....

ps. Don't worry, I do not expect anything....have to tell you that my book went down like the proverbial 'lead balloon'..(no publicity)..but I was not downhearted....What? Me? The Great Grandad? Downhearted? Nah, it was alright...we made a 'few bob' for the Cats' Protection Society and, to be honest, what more can one hope for?

But, sometimes, in the deep of the night, my Meouwmy dreams of the 'spin-offs' that we could have had made, if my book had taken off...like...oh, I don't know....a little black-cat Grandad toy that you fill with water and then you press its nose and its tail shoots up and it pees everywhere....!!!! Now THAT would be wonderful....you have to admit that that would be wonderful....!!

Well, whatever....hope you all have a really good conference and enjoy yourselves hugely....!!

pps. I am now going off to 'chase leaf skeletons in Autumn gardens and ghost mice in ruined barns'....I'll think of you all at the conference when I catch the REALLY big buggers....!!

All best thoughts to you...

Grandad Conrad (aka Raddy)
