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!
Great to hear from you! I knew Leotta was going to Cape Cod..how was the trip? Yeah, Michael seems to be overseas ALOT. But without the old band, I'm not sure it matters..I mean, going to a concert and not seeing Chris up there....did you get the new CD? I have not, since Wal-Mart apparently doesn't have it (or else put it somewhere weird). How is Jesse enjoying being retired? I didn't go to the retirment dinner; they told us we were done when the kids left and all I wanted was to get out of there...Things did get better, they pretty much pulled me out of Life Skills and I was mostly working with a little girl in Kindergarten..but it just isn't like it used to be, Next year should be "interesting" since we will be cramming sixth grade in to already crowded conditions.
Anyway, I was glad to get your message, and will definitely give you a call. Take good care!
