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 Mariu, I've just read your comment on the "birthday cards for Michael" thread and I just wanted to say that I'm sure Michael will be very happy to see that he can get cards all the way from Venezuela! Good luck finding a good card! :D Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Hi Mariu and thanks for the friends request! Oh my goodness, you have a lot of “L’s” in your name, I’d never realized that… :D Do you know the song “Parlame d’amore Mariu”? It’s a really sweet old song I love by a lot of tenors, too bad our Michael never sang it huh? :D Take care Mariu and thanks again. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Thanks for your message you left - can I again say to you to have a wonderful, wonderful 2011 - may all your dreams and wishes come true - am glad also that you have been able to keep in touch with us all - long may it continue - it is just after 10 o`clock here in Scotland and people are already starting to set of fireworks - think after midnight there will be plenty - I live in a small seaside town and the people here know how to celebrate - have seen more fireworks here in the last 10 years that I have lived here than I ever saw in the city.
Have a great time Mariu - enjoy and as Michael always says - "have FUN!".
Hey Mariu, no problem sweetie! Did you know that there will be a CD and DVD of the David Foster & Friends event coming out next year? Gail has told us that the special will be aired on PBS in the States in March and the CD and DVD should be coming out after that, I can't wait! Take care and have a great day! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
