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!
Hi Kathy, you don't know me , but I wanted to ask you to be a friend on this MB fan blogg. I love Sylvie from Canada... and you comments are so nice about everything .. I'm cautious about friendships , only because of some past very bad relationships. They made me afraid to open up and trust.. but I'm working on those issues..!!
Hey Kathy, I'll be with you in spirit tonight and wanted to wish you a grand time at the concert sweetie: enjoy "Georgia" with me! XD Take good care my friend. Big warm hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hey Kathy, glad you enjoyed the song. I heard it on the Oscars a few weeks back and absolutely loved it: nice performance and terrific message. I don't watch all award shows, but most definitely the Grammys, AMA's and Oscars and almost always hear something interesting. :D Take good care my friend. Big hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie <3
It's from the soundtrack of a movie called "Beyond the lights". Rita Ora singing "Grateful", hope you enjoy. :D Take good care sweetie and have a wonderful birthday. Big warm bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie <3
Hey Kathy, you’re a sight for sore eyes sweetie, thanks for your message! :D Hubby is geting better every day, but he’s bored out of his gourd. We’re both managing fairly well considering, but “Missing you now” is our theme song these days... :D I do hope you get your phone/forum problems sorted out and hope last month wasn’t too rough on you. I do hope you have a fun Easter weekend. I’m hoping to figure out how to have a visit myself, because I’ve realized yesterday that my circumstances may change in a few weeks, depending on doctor’s orders and how fast we scale the mountain of paperwork. In the meantime, hurry up and wait. Have a Cadbury cream egg on me! :D Take good care my friend and please know that I’m thinking of you. Big warm bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie xxxxx
Hi Kathy, it's been too long girl! I just wanted to share this song with you. I heard it on the Grammies show the other night and really enjoyed it, even if it's a country song, Brandy Clark "Hold My Hand"
She has a pretty voice and the song is very nice. Hope you're doing well sweetie. It's freezing up here, but we're all fine. I hope you've had time to skim the forum for upcoming TV appearances from our Michael. Take care Kathy and have a great day. Big warm hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie xxx
...I thought you might enjoy. :D I finished my holiday cards so I can get back to being in touch with people. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and hope you’re doing well, thinking of you. :D Take care my friend. Sending big warm hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie <3
…and thought you might enjoy. I haven’t even had the time to watch it myself, but it sounds promising! Seeing my grandbaby tomorrow and thinking about Xmas a month and a half away… I hope to write soon, miss you girl and hope you’re doing well. Big hugs, sincerely, your friendly neighborhood bug, Me! xxxxx
Hey you, I don't have any special present today, but just wanted to say hi and hope you're feeling better and taking the time for some "me" time. Take good care Kathy. Big warm bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie xxx
Hiya sweetams, thank you for taking the time to write me such a lovely birthday message! :D I should be doing a bit more shopping tomorrow, then I’ll spend the afternoon opening gifts, lol and we’ll go out to dinner. Heehee, I was able to wait this long, so 2 more waiting hours won’t kill me... ;D You take good care my friend and talk to you real soon. Big bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hi again Kathy, well first, no need to rush responding sweetie, I understand you’re busy. Okay well, to my knowledge, you haven’t changed your E-mail address, so if my E-mails aren’t even in your “junk” folder, I just don’t get it. Now second, in your forum in-box, did you try both “reply” and “compose”, or do you usually write by simply clicking on “send a message from my page? Again, just grabbing at straws. Sadly, as I’ve mentioned on my blog, I gave the bear to my granddaughter, so I’d need to make another one for myself and I’m not too motivated right now... ;D All I can say about the office sweetie is that they can’t cut your hours if you’re this busy, so I guess it’s a blessing in disguise. You take good care of yourself my friend, give a nuzzle to Ashley for me and do keep in touch. Big bear hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
