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 Patience, I am not sure we have met, however we have someone in common. Lovely photo with Michael. I recently joined the website after a long spell of not listening to music, I do live in Mississauga, originally from Trinidad. These people on this site are wonderful and very informative. I love the responses from Sylvie, she is such s sweetheart. Canadian eh!
Hi Patience, just to let you know, my husband read that the Oprah "Where are they now" show is rerunning the episode with Michael tonight, at 10:00 p.m.. I will put the info in the "Canadian fans..." thread also, but was hoping you'd catch the info in time this time. :D Take care sweetie. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Patience, oh you know I want to spoil my granddaughter to bits! My kids are grown now and it’s been a while since I’ve been able to spoil little ones... She’s still so small though and I just hope to have her with me at Xmas. We put up the tree early, so can’t wait to witness her reaction. Girl, she’s laughing already! :D Anyway, if I can just get my cards done early this year, I’ll be happy with myself. So, what are your own plans with your daughter? Any yearly traditions? In any case, hope you both have fun. You take care my friend. Hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hi Patience, in reply to your comment on the "Suggestions for songs..." thread, first, glad you enjoyed the video! :D Second, thanks very much for sending the link: this was such a nice performance. It feels kind of strange to hear it with Lara again though, after hearing it so many times on YouTube with Kelly Levesque. I think it's time to listen to "Gems" again! :D Thanks again my friend, take care. Hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hi Patience, great to hear from you sweetie! As a matter of fact, I had a wonderful family day today, with the 4 family generations meetting and it was just wonderful! My granddaughter is gaining weight nicely and she apparently sleeps quite contently in my arms, which is an absolute blessing... :D Thanks for asking Patience. Oh wow, we’re only 3 days apart! I’ve just added your birthday on the list and will resend it to Gail. So, what have you been up to recently? Any family projects in the works, vacation etc? On my side, aside from cleaning projects, I’ve been working on a music box for my granddaughter and finished it yesterday, so I should be posting pictures on “My creations” blog, hopefully tomorrow. My son is going back to school soon, so I’ll start fixing little things around the house in preparations for my late September guests. That’s about it for now Patience, thanks for writing sweetie, take care. Hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
