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, Sally
Hi again Betty, I only listen to some pop radio in the morning and haven’t heard Michael there since 1993. On AC radio, they mostly play his covers, although it makes me jump up and cheer when I do! Richard Marx said in an interview a few years back that people tend to stamp a time-label on certain artists, that’s why he doesn’t record much. Although I have to admit that I absolutely love Richard’s songwriting. I found out recently that he co-wrote “To where you are” by Josh Groban and man do I love that song… He also co-wrote some of the best ones on OAWLY. Sweetie, we have to be protective of Michael: too many emotionally oblivious people beat up on him! Nice talking with you Betty, have a great day! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Qc Canada
Hi again Betty, I completely agree about people having pre-conceived ideas about him and not being able to get passed that. If they only took the time to listen to his lyrics and give into the emotion that Michael expresses… I posted on the michaelboltonmusic.co.uk main site that I hoped radio would get passed their idea of what they think he is and give his CD a chance. Have you heard any of his new songs in your area? My husband and sister heard “Murder my heart” twice on my AC station but I never did… Thank God, they do play him on digital cable! Just yesterday, I heard “Missing you now”. Can you imagine hearing that on the radio? Well anyway, thanks a lot for your message Betty. This forum is so wonderful: I’m addicted! Lol Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Qc Oh and thanks again for your concert story!
Hi Betty, just wanted to say that I loved your comment on Debra Stewart's page! lol the one where you were asking to people if they were blind and deaf... Frankly, I can't comprehend myself that the entire world isn't in love with that voice... Have a great day and thanks for making me smile! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Qc Canada
Hi Betty, it's so good to see so many Canadian friends here! I've really enjoyed the review of your concert on the other forum and it's wonderful to finally be able to connect with people you've only read about! BTW, nice choice of song! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Qc Canada
Right back at you..... Bev Blanchard's Bestest Bolton Buddy Betty Boo!! Wow you now have 7 B's. LOVE THE SONG WHEN I COME TO YOUR PAGE! I usually only listen to this at Christmas, so it is nice treat today!
