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. You could even send your note on a 2x3 size paper and I’ll attach it to a card. Send your picture to if you like. That would take out the SASE step. 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. Just let me know the option that works best for you. 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 Geraldine, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. You have my sympathy. It's hard to lose a loved-one. I hope you can get to go to see MB the next time he's over there..I just took my mother with me to see him last month in Pennsylvania (I live south of that state in MD).. We had a nice time together. I know as our parents get older we must treasure the times we spend with them.. I will be lost w/o my mother one day.
I hope you are doing ok and that MB's music continues to help you and also he has a new album in the works so that is something new and fun to look forward to!!
Hi Geraldine, thanks for your kind words about my photos. I've traveled a lot of years to see MB and have been able to get some good ones like alot of others here on this site. Welcome to the forum.. Feel free to post often to the different threads!!
