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
Thanks for your note...just didn't want to pinch any photos without you knowing and have already picked one to print and frame....just need a colour cartridge for my printer - on order - then I'm off and running !!! :) When you have put into gallery everyone knows to go in there to view so we don't generally re-print on pages - unless something specific like a "joke" then you will see the one of him in the bath or the other one, half naked, being banded about - wonder if he realizes what we get up to...can't remember what thread it is in but a short while ago one of the girls, Ivana, she posted one of the pictures and she had drawn glasses on him - it was good - stupid fun but still fun !!! :)
Just back from gallery and those pictures are brilliant - thanks so much for taking and for putting in....without doubt there are some that are the best I've seen in the gallery ...hope too you don't mind if I pinch a few for my own album ??? There are about four or five I would love to print and frame but I have so many round the house as it is I'll have to limit myself and pick just one...or else buy myself a bigger house....now there is a thought !!!!! lol.
Hope all the exams go well Madison and that you get the results you want - good luck !
