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
Joan, sorry not to comment back on your appreciation of pic but would you believe this is the first time I checked my acct in ages. Pic was at FYE signing in McLean Va Dec 2003 at the time of Vintage. Bought new CD which I gave as a Christmas gift since I already had it. After waiting in line so long I really couldn't think of something to say that didn't come out teeny bopperish since I am older then Michael by about 5 yrs and said something about our mother's having the same name. Really felt dumb then. He did say kindly I hear a lot of that so I guess it wasn't that unusual. I usually would be there at the stores on release day. A lot of US delay on OWOL so just settled for DVD PBS sent me and the RAH CD when I couldn't find it here. Was looking for that Christmas release with The Prayer on it but guess we will have to wait. Excited to hear Love Is Everything with the Flats! Thanks again and sorry it took so long for me to get back to let you know I read it.(-:
Hey Joan, thanks for touching base, I hope you're having fun! Well, except for the weather that is... I have a couple of friends who are going to Manchester and hope everyone can make it there... Sweetie, I've read your response to Jennifer on the 2010 review thread, why don't you post reviews sweetie? We'd love to hear how much fun you're having, lucky! lol Well take care and enjoy the next one. Travel safe and stay warm! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Hi Joan, I was just thinking of you and wanted to wish you a fantastic time tomorrow and the following days, lucky! Oh and I do hope you'll share reviews from your concerts with us here: http://www.michaelbolton.com/forum/topics/2010-concert-tour
I don't think I've ever read your posts there so thought I'd let you know. I've found someone who is going to even more concerts than you are! lol Her name is Helen and she has an MB tattoo! Apparently, you can see her on the RAH DVD: she's going to 14 concerts altogether. Anyway, as I've said, enjoy the shows and i'll be with you in spirit! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Joan we love you so much for that nice book and we both loved it did you see my post>>>Hey Michael, Joan from the UK just sent Ashley a copy of Secret of the Lost Kingdom band it is a wonderful book. I sat down a few nights ago and over the span of two nights read it to her and I must admit that you pulled tears from my eyes a few time towards the end and I actually had to stop to get it together because I didnt want her to ask me if I was crying. I must be a big baby huh? But it was so well written that I couldn't help myself. We will be bringing it to Modesto in February when we see you. Love Dad & Ashley and Thank you so much Joan you are way to sweet to us.
Hi Joan, I just wanted to let you know that someone started a discussion thread about fans going to the U.K. concerts and I thought you might want to join in and connect with some who are going to the shows. Here's the link to it: http://michaelbolton.ning.com/forum/topics/to-all-of-you-who-are-going-to?

Hi Joan, oh I’d love to come with you to a concert and I’d bring cookies! Lol Going to concerts with Bolton buddies is the best! Cute story about your dogs: it’s a wonder you get to sleep at night! Lol Thanks a lot for the birthday wish sweetie! Well, I’m off. I have to get productive before long: they’re forecasting about 35 to 40 degrees Celsius with the humidity today, it’s even warmer than California!we can’t complain though because they’ll probably be the last very warm days of summer. Take care Joan, nice to hear from you! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
