Michael has a milestone birthday coming up in February 2018. I ran an idea past Gail that passed with approval.

I have small cards that are 2.5X3.5. The idea for the card is not to say happy birthday, but you have room to put a few sentences to tell Michael why you love him, his music or how his music helped you in hard times. It’s should be big enough for a wallet size photo if you would like.

Then when he’s home sitting at his desk, he can pull 1 or 2 cards to read when he has the time. Our words will be with him all year.

I request a SASE, and I will send you a card. Write your note and put in your picture. When your finished, mail it back to me.
For those out of the country, I checked with my postmaster and she said you can put your own postage on the return envelope equivalent to $1.15 US.

Email me, Sally, at MYSCRTPSSN@gmail.com and I can give you an address to send your SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).

A second option that isn’t as personal, is to email me a short note and I can cut and paste it onto a card for you. I don’t want to handle pictures this way because I’m not that computer literate and don’t want to make errors with something as personal as a picture.

When all the cards are gathered, I’ll put them in some sort of decorate box. And the box of cards will be Michael’s birthday gift from us.

It might seem early, but it’s something that we can work on Now through January. I’d like to be finished by February since I would need to get a box and mail it off to Michael.

Your welcome to share my email with anyone you think may be interested in contributing to Michael’s milestone 65!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Here's 2 photos I've taken of the card box for Michael. 

The card box looks great, Sally!
I posted mine on the 6th, 9 days ago. Do hope you have received it. You're doing a wonderful job!!!! Tessa fm Tenerife xx

Thank you Tessa! 

I’m glad everyone likes it. It came out really nice. I have to say, I was worried. 

I was late posting here that you even had photos of it, I do not get many notifications anymore. So I checked and it was on here...

Thanks again!

Robin :)

Michaels Birthday gift is on the way to him. I thought I’d share a few more pictures. 

I didn’t participate (overwhelmed at work) but what a lovely idea. Amazing . Regards,Usha / Ontario , Canada 

You can still participate.  The box of notes is a memory of Michael, a favorite song or how he helped you through a trying time. Not necessarily his Birthday although a lot of people did include that in their message. Any cards I get from now on, I’m going to forward to Michael to add to the box. 

I meant to mention that that I had 108 cards and there is plenty of room in the box for more cards. 

Cool . Would you kindly refresh my memory on the procedure?  Thank you , Usha
