Dear Arthur’s Friends,
My name is Mike and I am posting this on behalf of Arthur. I helped Arthur out writing his book and he always sent his writings to me to proofread them. Here’s the last bit he wrote on 16 June 2015. It’s all I have at this very moment. I hope to be seeing him next week when I am visiting England. He has got some great friends here, I’ll tell him that. Here’s the last bit he wrote:
Anybody out there willing to take care of a lovely little boy and his dog for a week or two, maybe longer, depending on how this situation develops. Mum and Dad had been fighting for a week over whether there was going to be a cat or not. I said that maybe we should start out with half a cat and see how it goes. But they didn’t really want to listen to my ideas. Even dressing up Cheddar as a cat wasn’t an idea worth listening to. I even offered to design the outfit myself to save costs. Mum has been staying at Grandma’s place since yesterday. She’ll be back soon; nobody can live at Grandma’s for more than a week.
I am very sorry, but this is the last bit of writing he sent me. Hopefully, he’ll be posting again soon. I know he misses you and he misses being able to write as it was more or less the only thing he had going for him. On the upside, his book has been proofread by me and a friend of mine and we both laughed our heads off. I sure hope it’s going to be published one day, but that’s all up to Arhtur, I guess. Thank you very much for your concern and I hope he’ll be contacting you personally very soon.
Mike Michels – on behalf of Arthur.
