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 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.
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,

Hi Lori, sorry it’s been too long sweetie. Yes I did watch DWTS and I was very moved by the duet, such a beautiful and sad song… I really don’t know who’ll win “American Idol” but I’ll be happy with the results either way because I love both singers. I wish James would have stayed on though, I thought he was the best. I’ve been okay but very busy with both the forum and my family lately. I hope you’re doing well Lori and that your part of Canada finally feels springy! We’ve been having 22-23 degree weather and not a moment too soon! My tulips have come and gone and we’re starting to smell lilac in the backyard and I love it!  Have you pre-ordered “Gems” yet? Fans have been posting live South American performances of some of the new songs on Youtube! Here’s “Love is everything”:


Here’s “Somewhere over the rainbow”:


and here’s “Pride in the name of love”:


I hope you enjoy them Lori. Take good care of yourself sweetie and hope to talk again soon. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Lori, I’m glad you enjoyed “A song for mama”, it makes me cry no matter what. Sorry to hear you’ve lost your mom too. From what I understand, Michael will be singing with Delta Goodrem, an Australian singer on DWTS. Their duet on “Gems” is called “I’m not ready” and maybe that’s what they’ll be singing, we don’t know yet. Oh I’m so glad you’ve finally been able to go out! I did go on a walk with my eldest son yesterday, but we’ve had a horrid couple of weeks weather-wise here. At least, it finally made my tulips open: I have huge yellow ones and pink ones too! It’s too bad they don’t last very long… I hope the pain in your legs is getting better. At least, I think going out should pick you up and feel more energized to exercize. I’ve heard that we might get a special version of “Gems in Canada, so I’ll be keeping an eye on Amazon and keep you posted on the news. Take good care of yourself Lori and I’ll look forward to hear from you. Big hugs to you and woofs to sir Chancelot, sincerely, Sylvie in Qc xxx

Hi Lori, in response to your message, I commend you for choosing to cut out something you love.  I should cut out junk from my diet, although I am quite reasonable with it and exercize more lately. Oh, so your parents are French?  I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a drink: the strongest stuff I have is coffee! :D Oh, I thought because of your leg, you might have been on some medication. How is it this week? Better, I hope. Is the weather and winds still horrendous or is it starting to feel like spring finally? Oh wow, I didn’t know you could have your lashes and brows darkened… Dare I ask how the new hairdresser worked out? :D I must say I’m not adventurous with my hair and don’t even care that I have some silver in it now: what you see is what you get. I never want to worry about roots: to me, it’s a waste of time and money.  My hairdresser knows me and I’m out of there within 15 minutes. My eldest son’s new room is coming along nicely: we just need to clean the carpet and he should move in next week. He’ll be glad when all the work is over with! Lol Hey, another day, another challenge and as long as we’re alive,  we trek ahead: a little music for the soul and staying in touch with friends for the heart and we’ll be just fine! Take good care of yourself Lori and sir Chancelot. Big hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie from Qc

Hi Lori, how are you? I’m pretty good, saw both my daughters over the weekend. Oh I’m glad you like Scotty, I thought you would. I agree about the talent on AI this year: it’s gonna be a tough race. I have to say I loved Simon because he had mellowed over the years but don’t really miss him. Steven Tyler makes things interesting. He’s in Aerosmith, by the way. Last week’s AI show on Thursday with Stevie Wonder was so amazing! I’m really glad to hear your ankle and foot are doing better! Oh girl, I know what it’s like to try and be independent! Sorry you couldn’t go to church, but it’s cool that you can listen on-line. I hope for you that you can go for walks soon Lori. The thing is that we had a taste of spring and then it was taken away. When I went to my daughter’s yesterday, it was bitterly cold, -16 with wind chill factor. Well, lucky you only gained 3 lbs Lori! Lol Did you have to take a wine break because of your meds?  Well, I understand it’s not easy taking a break from things you love. No harm in venting a little. My son’s new room is coming along: the painting’s almost done and I have to work on making curtains, slowly but surely. I’ve been studying “Les misérables” for the past couple of weeks, both the book and the musical and quite enjoyed it. Well, nice talking to you too Lori, have a great week! Take care. Big hugs to you and woofs to sir Chancelot, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hey Lori, I'll respond to your other message as soon as I can: I try to go by priority. I'm not on Facebook sweetie, but that's where you can ask Michael questions. Let me know what you ask him! My friend  put 2 questions up for me that I had asked on a blog last year and hope for the best that he'll answer this time. Take care sweetie. Big hugs to you, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Lori, it’s so wonderful to hear from you sweetheart! Yes I did get your PM, but I’m backed up with messages, because my boys have been off school for March break, so I’m catching up as fast as I can! Okay, what you need to do to know when it’s on in your area, is to check the listings on your PBS station. Now, here’s the link to find which is your PBS station and then go from there.


You see, in my area, I have 2 PBS stations: one in Vermont and one in NY. I’ve “seen” the show 3 times already! The “Hitman returns” program will be aired at various times throughout the month, but if you miss it, you can buy it on CD/DVD in the store. It’s been out since last Tuesday. You see, today, Michael was taping those “in  between” segments during pledge breaks. It’s not a separate program, it’s just segments to be inserted during the show. If you look for it in the store,, it’s called “Hitman returns, David Foster & friends” and it’s sold in a CD case. I hope that helps sweetheart. I’ll write to you soon Lori, hope that helps for now. Take care. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Lori, I'm finally getting back to you, sorry about that. We've only had dustings of snow but almost every day for the past few days and it's bitterly cold. Thank God, I haven't had to go out! Today was beautiful but again, -30 with the wind-chill. I hope it's nicer soon for you so you can get some fresh air. I'm so sorry to hear about your niece's dog passing on. Oh that will leave a big hole in her life. My uncle used to have 2 Persian cats and they were like his kids too. Well, it's certainly cold enough to make artificial snow but who wants to go?  Had a busy weekend: I've had visits from both my daughters. I miss them both but we're keeping in touch. Hope you feel better soon Lori. You never did tell me if you had a new year's resolution... :DMine is to not make resolutions and I'm doing well so far! :D Take good care of yourself Lori. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Lori, aww, you're such a sweetheart! Yes I'm fine sweetie but  I have a pile of messages and hardly any time to respond! lol I like to take the time to respond properly and have something remotely interesting to say so I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Hope you and sir Chancelot are doing well. Take care my sweet friend. Big hugs  and kisses to you, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hi Lori, Wow just read your blog I'm glad Michael was inspirational to you and your recovery. Was that your first time meeting Michael (photo pictured)? I'm only asking because of your expression, you look very happy. Regarding People yes he's on the current issue that hit the stands on Friday 19th regarding the sexiest men article. I haven't seen it yet, but Sylvie mentioned it was only a small notation. I'm gonna try to check it out when hit the grocery store tomorrow. I'm gonna friend request you if that's ok. Still new here so hopefully will do it right. Bye for now Sylvia-Texas

Hi Lori, I just wanted to share this with you. Shannon posted a picture or a few pictures of her dog in an Underdog costume and I thought you'd enjoy seeing this:
So there you go sweetie, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Lorri, I love your story. Am very glade for you that you got to meet Michael. He is such a wonderful man. I just sent Juliet a message asking her to add you to the Bolton Bear Group. Juliet runs marathons with Bolton Bear to help raise money for Michael's charaties. I am so greatful that Juliet does this for MBC. Bolton Bear is just so cute isn't he??!!! I hope you have a great day. Love, Shannon xoxo

Hi Lori, lol you're not a bug sweetie, but I need to take the time to respond to all your messages properly and I only have time to skim through right now. Will respond to all your messages as soon as possible. Glad you found the thread, by the way. Take care and talk to you soon. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hey Lori, haven’t heard from you in a while, how have you been? Did the hurricane have any effect on your neck of the woods? And have you been able to watch Michael on “Dancing with the stars”? It was so exciting last week! My daughter managed to register me on the ABC web site and voted 12 times for me! Lol I don’t know if you’ve seen the “Michael on Dancing with the stars” thread but fans are going nuts voting! It’s a lot of fun… We all hope that Michael is taking care of himself. It’s really too bad he had to cancel those 2 concerts because of laryngitis… He’s got his inaugural benefit gala tonight and he’s dancing again tomorrow. His partner Chelsie says he’s doing really well, guess we’ll find out tomorrow. Well, take good care of yourself Lori and don’t be a stranger! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Hey Lori, great to hear from you! I’m not too bad. I’m looking forward to the kids going back to school in 11 days! It won’t be a concert, but since my boys will be out, I’ll put on several MB CD’s in a row and clean up my house to help with my MB craving! Lol This has been the nicest summer we’ve had in 3 years over here. Granted, it’s been very warm, but the 2 past summers have been too rainy and cold so it’s a welcome change. As far as I know, the next time Michael comes to Canada will be in January, in Niagara Falls. Good luck on teaching your dog manners sweetie. Oh, listen, have you heard about Michael’s new Xmas CD coming out in October? Michael said he’ll be singing “The prayer” on it! I don’t know if you know this song but I just love it by Josh Groban and Charlotte Church! We know so far that he’ll be singing the Italian part. The song is usually a duet, half English/half Italian, but Michael hasn’t mentioned a singing partner for this song. However, we’ve just found out that he’ll be singing a duet with Elaine Paige on her duets album, released in November in the U.K. and early 2011 in the U.S. Where would we be without Amazon?  All right, gotta go but it was nice hearing from you Lori! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
