Hi Richard,
I do not think you are allergic to Cleopatra.
Remember the raffle conducted by the Cincinnati Chapter. People bid on an item.
Maybe we should do that at the Convention.
I am talking about a specific raffle item and all the necessary things to go with it.
Of course people would only bid on it if they wanted it or knew someone else wanted it. Remember the briefcase or backpack we passed around and people bid on at the convention in memory of Ron.
People got their name drawn and had to pay ten dollars to pass it on.
Maybe you could arrange that for a Cat Person you know when she isn't here.
I bet Richard would hurry up and say someone else's name so he could quickly get the Carrier out of his lap.
This is just for you Richard.
Hurry up and sign up for Scrips.
I was a little slow in figuring out how to do this. You just figure out what you want to order and go from there.
Last month orders had to be in early, I think by the 29th.
We got our Scrip Items in the mail about April 3rd or fourth. It worked great.
Seriously, Richard, if I can do this anyone can.
But to be fair I wouldn't be able to do this without Shelbi and Eric helping me.
