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 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

Hallo Astrid, I just wanted to bring your attention to this thread a Korean fan started:

This is a beautiful and heartfelt message that somehow reminded me of your own message, after a very special concert in Dresdin. :D I'm pretty sure you'll appreciate it. Take good care my friend. Big warm bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie <3

Hallo liebling, I just wanted to say a quick hallo and a danke also. :D We've been digging up old links relating to the favorite songs we'd like to hear and revisiting old threads. I skimmed through this one:

...and on page 2, you got me tearing up again with your genuinely awesome description of the WIBOMFA video. Reading it again, I suddenly had this overwhelming feeling that Michael must have been thinking of his dad while he filmed that video... According to an interview I have, he sure was when he recorded it... Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you again and God bless. Big bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie   <3

Hi Asssstrid :) Happy to hear you enjoyed my review. 

Bob waxed his car and the paint job was fine but his front windshield did get slightly pitted from the sand :/

Looking forward to your review!!! Woohoo!!!

Hallo liebling, I never get tired of reading your page! :D I just wanted to say I quite enjoyed your post on the "get well" messages thread. :D I'll bet some fans will wonder what you're talking about! lol I didn't know Michael had a beard in the Tidy Cats thing though, yikes! XD Anyway, I hope you're doing well Astrid and are finally truly settled in your new home. Take good care of yourself my friend and hope to hear from you soon. Big warm bear hugs, your friend Sylvie :D

Hi Astrid, I read what you wrote. Cool. You guys are more advanced technologically than I am that's for sure. I've been on the forum several years&I'm still learning it. Hope you're well. I'm hoping you're getting this. I did an all note so now, I'm trying individually to certain BB'S& you're one of them. :))) take care. Just wanted to say hi.

Hi Astrid, I saw your note, should not be a problem!!! I would rather discuss it privately. I send a friend request so we can message instead of putting things on the public wall, thanks!

Hi Astrid!  No idea how DHL pulled off what FedEx & UPS cannot do.  Maybe, just maybe, it has something to do with US postal regulations.  The US postal service hates the competition from those two!  Anyway, imagine my delight - and relief - to find the DHL package in the mailbox!  It could be DHL is not a US company & USPS competitor, or it could be because it was an international delivery?  No real clue, but it did work out!

See my reply to "Wee Sylvia's" post on the forum - LOL!  Just posted it a couple minutes ago - had to take a break from the wallhanging work.  Cheers, Amie

Hi Astrid!  DHL delivered to the PO box.  Somehow DHL managed to do what FedEx & UPS do not do.  What lovely squares.  Great additions to the project.  And a chocoholic thanks you for the Mozart delivery, too.  Um-um, yummy in the tummy.  Thanks & regards, Amie

Hallo Astrid, just wanted to pop by for the latest news. Well just to let you know, I’ve just heard from Amazon and it looks like “The soul of it all” is postponed at least until the end of January. I’m very disappointed, but trying to focus on the  fact that Michael will be on TV on “2 ½ men” in 2 weeks and God willing, we should hear something about the new CD when Michael returns from the Dave Coz cruise...  Take care sweetie and I’m sure we’ll talk soon. Hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie  xxx

Hallo Astrid, I wanted to respond to you in the tour thread, but didn't feel like going back 3 pages to find the reply link, lol but just wanted to say I hope you can come back and participate soon, take care. Big hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie xxx

P.S.: I had sent a PM to let you know that when you have time, you might want to check out my creations blog on my profile page. :D

Thanks for your message Astrid and I am glad you like my photos and I must thank you very much indeed for that extra special link for it has now become part of my profile page !! LOL  I love your page and especially that little picture up above....think I have seen that before somewhere ????? LOL.

I must go as my unicorn is needing fed and I do not want to upset him or he may not let me ride him anymore and as I must carry on the good work of being delusional I need his help all the time.....possibly I should get another two unicorns and then everyone will know I am obsessive too.....what do you think ?????? ROFL   Yeah man !!!! LOL.


Sylvia.   Your wee delusional, obsessive, compulsive Scottish friend.

Hallo Astrid,

vielen Dank! Ich gebe mir Mühe noch mehr Wallpaper zu erstellen. Wenn man ersteinmal den Bogen raus hat, ist es ganz einfach.

Bisher kam noch keiner auf mein Problem zu sprechen. Von daher nehme ich dein Angebot gern an.


Grüße aus Norddeutschland

Hallo Astrid, I just wanted to say that I’ve enjoyed revisiting your page this morning, re-reading Michael’s quote and your description of picture! It’s none of my business but maybe you should delete Vicky’s comment, it’s from a spammer.  Have a lovely Valentine’s Day my friend and know that even if you don’t have a sweetheart, you are loved! :D Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada <3
