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 Sally! I try to check in here as often as I can. Sometimes, like Marty mentioned, there's just too much to wade through. I really do miss the ole gang! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get to see Michael in Branson. I've got the tickets and reservations...the only thing that might interfere with the concert is Taryn's baby! She's due Oct. 18th and the concert's Oct. 23rd....excuse me!!! LOL!!
Good to have you here I have read your stories for many years!
How about this "Vanity Fair"
"What about featuring a favorite of mine, Michael Bolton-singer, songwriter, and a great looking guy? He came out first in a most popular-male-singer poll recently.Even opera thinks he's terrific" Sally Freeman,Colorado Springs, Colorado
I bet you have some wonderful stories to tell.
Thanks for all your efforts for all those years Sally

Hi Sally! I hardly ever visit here; there is so much to go through every day! I so wish we could get together this year, because it has really been far, far too long, but it just can't be. At least we all will get to see Michael. Talk to you later! Love ya! Marty
Hi Sally, I have been reading you for years my dear and I’d love to be your friend and exchange with you! I’m legally blind and my family members would read me the MBPlatinum newsletter and I remember enjoying your colum in there. I’ve also visited your lyrics page once or twice… I’ve always known you to be knowledgeable when it comes to Michael and that, I have to respect! You see Sally, I’m enthusiastic on any given day, but the fact that this site is finally allowing me to participate by myself, without having to bother my dear sainted Gail too much is … well, the answer to my prayers! Lol I could only lurk on the previous forum because it wasn’t blind-friendly. And when it comes to Jeremy, you really gotta love someone who cares this much about history and accuracy and the richness of the evolution of Michael’s artistry… Plus he’s Canadian! I will look forward to exchanging with you Sally, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada P.S.: Incidentally, I always sign “from Canada” because there’s a Silvy from Switzerland.
