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 Mary Lou, always great to hear from you girl! You’re very welcome for the link. You know, I have yet to watch the original “Willy Wonka” and “Charlie & the chocolate factory” is in my “to watch” pile too. I picked up “Charlie” in a thrift store. I’m really glad for you that you have this nice project to work on. I know what it’s like to organize pictures: my “she cave” walls are full. :D I understand about not wanting to change Meg’s room and although we had to change, our guest room is themed with our kids stuff. :D Thanks for writing Mary and I hope to catch up more soon. Big hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hey Mary, sorry for the delay. Thanks for the tip about Adele, but Ellen comes in in he afternoon on the East Coast. Ellen does put most interviews on YouTube anyway. Girl, are you still watching "American Idol"? Kelly Clarkson was on last night and gave quite a performance of her song "Piece by piece" and it's an incredible song! I already have a favorite and hope she lasts for a good while. My favorite is Sonica: great name and she just sings beautifully and effortlessly. Well anyway, I will write a longer message soon sweetie, I haven't forgotten about you! :D Talk to you soon Mary, take good care and say hi to Meg for me. Big hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
Hi Mary, sorry I haven’t written much lately: the forum, the PledgeMusic site and real life have kept me busy. We’re all doing reasonably fine here, but Olivia and family have all been sick, so we haven’t visited in over 2 weeks. I miss my granddaughter terribly and haven’t been able to snuggle much with my grandson yet, but we’ll see next weekend. I’m glad to hear you’re having so much fun with your painting Mary and it’s something you and Meg can do together. I’ve been taking care of stuff I’d put aside while finishing my last creation last month and it’s taking some time, so I have no idea when the creative juices will be able to flow again. My shows have started also and it’s a weird feeling to have to tape some because I have too many on the same days. I’m still not watching “The voice” and I’m holding out for the last season of A I in January. I hope to catch up more in a PM soon sweetie, be patient. Hubby’s got a lot going on in the next couple of weeks, so I might have another update in that department too. Well anyway, thanks so much for writing Mary, good to hear from you, even if it’s a quick message. Say hi to Meg for me and hugs to both of you, take care, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
I thought of you when I read it, so thought I’d pass it on. I hope we can catch up soon, but we’re all fine here and hope you are too. Say hi to Meg for me Mary, take care. Hugs, sincerely, your friend Sylvie :D
