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, Sally
Hi Elizabeth, thanks for the friends invite! Good luck getting a concert near you sweetie! I've heard that Michael loves the South so look for holes in his schedule. He usually takes a day off between shows to rest his voice, but if he has more than 2 days off and he's in your area, keep your fingers crossed! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Hey Elizabeth, there is a thread about concerts on the Forum section of this board, at the top of your wall here you can go to Connect, Forums, Tour, Gigs and Announcements and there is a threat started about The Next Leg of the tour and some talk about the concert last night...that's the section where we talk about the concerts. The blog thread it to reply to Michael and what he mentions when he blogs. We have alot of different areas to discuss and chat about things in the Forums part of the website. I hope this helps you find the correct areas to go to. It's a bit confusing at first but we all just love this site, it's the best one we've had!
I am waiting for some reports from the RI show too!
Actually, I was only kidding, but there is some truth to the fact that I think he'd be happier dating a woman who wasn't famous and who, perhaps wasn't in competition with him for who's the bigger star...if you know what I mean. He needs a normal woman who does something normal for a living and might be home when he comes home, etc. Just look around at the rest of the 'stars', and their marital history.
Oh, and Elizabeth. The women who would be best suited for Michael and make him the happiest man would be me. :-) His mistake all along with women is that he's had to have some beautiful, famous, hardbody (generally a bimbo) and he should come back down to earth to find a woman who would really love and respect him. All of his other women were too into themselves.
I saw him in concert once, back in 1994, and have lived on that for all these years. He was tremendous. Just to show you how I never get tired of his music, I bought the CD One World;One Love back in September and made a copy of it and put it in my car CD player. I have never taken it out. It's been played constantly (and I'm in my car everyday). I also listen to his music at home on my IPod while cleaning, and listen to it on the computer while playing games, etc. That's why I made a copy, so the original would remain in A-1 condition. I knew I'd wear it out, and wear it out I will...then I'll just make another copy. I'm totally hooked.
Hi Elizabeth, I am just a member here too, I don't have a way to get messages to MB unfortunately. I know he's not toured in your area for some time, mine either, I go up noth to see him alot. It's been fun on this new forum with him blogging more. I wish you good luck. Enjoy the board and go to the forum section and there are plenty of folks there to get to know, nice fans!
MB has started blogging more often. He recently asked what the fans would like to feel more connected and that has been one of them. He's been doing good with it...we all enjoy hearing from him when he has the time to write us a note.
Welcome to the forum! You are in the right place being a fan of Michael and his music!
