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
Hey Tom. Hope the healing goes quickly. Ashley had told me you were having the operation and that you were coming along ok. I hope you are "Back on Your Feet Again" really soon so you can get Ashley to more concerts. Let me know how you are doing. Gail
Hi Tom, thanks for your message! Oh my, I'm so happy for you and Ashley! Wow, that's amazing what technology is up to nowadays: it must make your life so much easier. :D I should "look" that up... Well anyway, I hope you and Ashley are doing well and that you've had a nice Father's day yesterday. :D Thanks again for the update Tom, take care and God bless. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Tom I wish you and Ashley a wonderful time together with Michael B tonight. Say hello to him from his German and French fans and come back soon with a short sheet back.. take care and enjoy as much as you can .... Chris(tine)
Hi Tom, very weird coincidence: I'm sitting here listening to "The impossible dream" and I was cleaning up comments from my wall and I came across one of your comments from last September. I was wondering: have you made any progress with the Rifton Walker for Ashley? Just checking. I hope you and Ashley are doing well and that you've had a nice holliday season. Take good care of yourself Tom, God bless. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada :D
Hi again Tom, I was re-reading your message and I was wondering: are you having trouble finding where to get the Rifton walker, or is it just red tape that's in the way? Just curious. You take care Tom. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Tom, thanks for your reply. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make you cry, quite the contrary: I wanted you to know you're not alone... :D I wish you success with getting the walker Tom. I didn't know whether Ashley could benefit from that, but it would be fantastic if she could! Best of luck to you Superdad, God bless. Big warm hugs to you, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
I'm sorry I missed all of you too! I wanted to come but just couldn't afford the airfare and other things I needed to do with family. I'm so glad you guys had such a great time! Wish I could have been there!
Tom, I'm afraid I don't have an address for Milo and Nemo. They will be moving around and going overseas shortly for concerts. The only thing I could do is send it to Michael's office and have them try to get them to them whenever they can.
Tom, good luck at the doctors..I hope you get good results. As for the books...they have been selling them at the concerts and at most (depending on his time) he has been doing signings in the lobby after the show. I hope it works out that you can get them done there. I hope you and Ashley have a wonderful time! Gail
Hi Tom, I've realized that you mostly use this profile now and since you were my friend with the "Tom Hayes" profile, I thought I'd re-add you as a friend with this one. I'm glad to read you and Ashley are seeing Michael in April! I hope you're both enjoying Michael's book. I've recieved my print book, which my husband can read, but I'm waiting for my audio version in the next week and can't wait! By the way, in case you didn't know, on the audio version, Michael placed a song called "Gotta keep dreaming", that will be on the new CD also. That's it for now Tom, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hey Ashley, I love this pix:)! Girl you get All of Michael's kisses...:)! Give your friend a Hug for me and tell her she will get better, it just takes "Time, LOve & Tenderness"....and a whole lot of Prayers:)!
Tom, I'm just so excited that you and Ashley are able to make these trips and are enjoying yourselves. I so much enjoyed meeting you in CT and hopefully will see you again soon! I just love that Michael and Ashley have become so close...I just love seeing it. You both take care and from the picture it looks like Ashley enjoyed Reno. I wish I could have come but just wasn't possible this time...hopefully next year. You two take care and keep in touch. Gail
Hi Tom, I'm really glad you found your way to the birthday thread and finally got to have a very small sample of the attention you deserve and I'm glad you've enjoyed it! I have to say I'm a little confused that you have 2 profiles though... Did you make this profile because you couldn't remember the password to your other one? I'm just wondering. Well anyway, you and Ashley have a wonderful time at the gala Tom! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
