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. 1- 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). 2- The second option isn’t as personal, is to email me a short note and I can cut and paste it onto a card for you. I can print your picture if you wish to include one. 3- you can mail me your note and I’ll put it in a card for you. If you have an idea that would work best for you, just send me an email. 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 get it mailed about the week before his birthday. 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
Has Karen Day mentioned me to you? I've met karen numerous times. She can tell you some adventures we've had. You seem to be kind too. I'm glad you got to meet Michael. Isn't he awesome. Did you shake or hold his hand. he has soft hands. Yum. As I used to say Lubriderm, here I come. he ain't touchin' alagator skin. :)))))
Tracy, honey, where's there's life, there's hope. You'll meet him. It took me 9 years to hold his hand, so, I understand. I think it's awesome you've been to 5 concerts this year. I'm happy to be at 2. Boltonnut from L. A. CA I'm glad for you.
Tracey, have you had the chance to shake Michael's hand? I will enjoy. A lot of these CA concerts, I'm unable to attend due to money, transportation&distance. Oh! well! At least I'll get to see him in Vegas. Robin or Boltonnut from L. A. CA
It's too long&involved to type out what I said to MB. It was 5 minutes I spoke to him. I mentioned seeing him in concert in L. A. in February&asked him a question about the CD. He remembered holding my hand&how folks were so loving to me as he said. I was nervous. I knew about Charleston, honey. I'm glad, though, that you got to see him in Fayetteville&that you were with other BB'S.
Tracy, awesome you've met karen. I've met her numerous times. I'm glad you enjoyed the concert. Did he do anything from "Gems?" Was Lynn Arnold there? I've met her too. I'm seeing Michael 8/27/11 in Vegas. I'm meeting up with friends&have front row too.
I knew about Charleston but I'm glad you're going to Fayetteville. Awesome Bb'S that will be there. I've met Lynn&know karen. I identified myself&he remembered me. I asked him what psyched him up to do this duets CD. I can't remember what he said. I guess I was wrong to be upset that I couldn't hear the interview. I was ecstatic that's for sure. I'll be thinking of you Saturday while I'll be seeing Rick instead of Michael in Vegas. Rick's cool but not Michael. Some folks feel I was being negative&people just don't get it. I can share with friends; listen to it back as much as i want but some folks don't get it. Enough from me. I promised I wouldn't wear my emotions. Girl, my heart was pounding out of its cavity. Felt my face flush. :)
Tracy, it was awesome. I never even heard the show. I had it on 8 to 10&heard the callers but yet 10 to 12 my time, when MB was being interviewed, I couldn't hear it. I just curiously picked up the phone, called, got through&I was shocked. I had to hold on 20 some minutes. Gilfriend, my heart was pounding. I had planned on tapingthe show but couldn't. I wish I could get the show. It's archived. Sorry about Charleston but honey, have a great time Saturday. Robin the boltonnut from L. A. CA
Awesome Tracey about your seats in both NC&SC. Karen's going&I think Lynn is also. While yawl are seeing MB 6/18, I'll be seeing Rick Springfield with my friend. I'm doing well. Seems the web site has been changed some. Whew. Why can't they just leave stuff alone. Take care. Robin
Well, I won't be able to go to the shows in august. Distance, money&transportation but those are the breaks. I've accepted the last concert will be 2/14/11 for me unless he comes to Vegas or L. A. again. Thanks though. I'm totally stoked for you in June.
I got your messages here. I can do the comments but have problems with doing the direct messages.
Awesome you got front row seats. I've had front row seats myself. Backstage pass? Hmm. What's that? Hmm. I think I've heard of them. I wouldn't know about meets&greets. I've been to CD singings in 2003.
Story of my life not having accessibility to concerts. It's amazing. Vegas is 5&a half hours from me. I can get there. This concert Thursday, I can't. Oh! well! Such is life. Being offered a ride? Huh. Are you kidding me? I know. Shut up. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You've met him. you've seen him in concert. I'm referring to me but certain people I know always see him in concert&talk to him in person all the time. So, girlfriend, persevere from me. go up to that stage. Try to hold his hand if you can. I told Karen not to be shut. Not to be aggressive but assertive. Sitting back ain't gonna get it. Neat you've seen him 5 times in the last several months. This one I went to 2/14/11 will probably be the only one for me this year but it's better than nothing. Should he come to Vegas, I'll be there. i at least have a dear friend who would take me&if she can't due to working, there's Vegas's paratransit transportation that can get me there providing they're 24 7&probably not. Not my luck they aren't. They are here in L. A.That's how I got to Michael's concert 2/14/11. Are you kidding me? Someone pick me up. yeah, right. Not in this life time. My dad always told me if I want something done, I have to do it myself and he sure is right about that. Sorry for my ramblings. yeah,wah! wah! wah! I want cheese with my wine. :))))) I've been to a lot of concerts but most of it was getting there on my own. Ask karen how I traveled from Baltimore to Charlotte NC&how Trisha&I drove to Atlanta Georgia. I could go on&on&on.
Michael's going to be in Rancho Mirage but it's inaccessible for me to get to by public transportation&a couple hours away from me. Yet, Vegas is 5&a half hours from me&I can get there. Go figure. Of course, certain people are going but would they come&get me? Heck no. It's always, "Don't have the room" which could be but I get oh! so! sick of hearing it all my life. Some folks just don't want to bother with me since I can't see. Their loss; my gain. Sorry for being sort of down on myself but I can't help it sometimes. I'm not that bad; just blind. People just don't want to or know how to deal. :(
You go girl getting front row. I'm all the way out West so I can't afford to come to SC. I wish. What is your email. Can I give it to karen&Lynn? or are you in touch with them? I know they're going. I'd love for you to meet them. They're awesome people. I've met Lynne once but have met karen numerous times.
Are you going to Michael's concert in Charleston? They have a presale tickets. I don't know the pass word. Karen&Lynn are going. They have front row seats. Hope you can make it&meet up with thenm. They're awesome people.
Yeah, girl, I've gotta play the lotto first to win. :)))) I hear you. Going to his shows are addictive. I understand, girlfriend. Hope you'll get to go to the one in Charleston. I'm not going to any of the shows back East. I can't make it to the one in Ranco Maraj in CA. Inaceessible transportation&no one to take me. Are you kidding me? heh. Yeah, right. I know of folks are going but don't have the nerve to ask them to even meet me somewhere in L. A. Oh! well! those are the breaks. :( You want something done, you gotta do it yourself. :(
Yesterday can't be soon enough for a concert for me but good luck with the event in CT&try to check out the golf event while you're at it, ok? that way, you can go from hole to hole to try&meet up with Michael even if it's brief, ok? Let me know. I don't know when those tickets go on sale. I'm not going as I'm here in SoCal. I wish Michael was going to be in Vegas next week. No, he has to be in Portugal on the 8th, 9th&10th&my birthday's the 8th. Boo Hoo.
