Yeah...
...and if you KEEP on eating pizza like you do, there won't be much lean left of you (nyuck, nyuck, nyuck--okay, so I'm in a semi-evil mood!) Impsie, you're the GREATEST! Again, thanks to you (and dearest Lyn) for that fabulous surprise yesterday! (PS: Stephen loved it and laughed even more than I did!) Big hugs, Michael (and Weefie too of course)

Not sure how the mix sounded as I was testing out my brand new headphones (the birthday fairy was very kind to me) and getting the hang of them--you are too kind! Take care now, Michael

Nice one MJK!

You're the smile on the Mona Lisa! Yikes! I dunno if that's so good.

Napolean brandy on the other hand...! That's not so bad.

Very great. This had me swinging at work.

I consider you one my best friends and having a friend like you is the best birthday gift of all. Truly appreciate your coming by to listen to my crooning and stuff and want you to know that means a great deal to me (and by the way, I am STILL laughing about your "Intel Inside" crack from yesterday--that was brilliant!) You take care now, Michael

Happy Birthday
and what goes on the top? Candles! As always, superlatives are inadequate when it comes to your singing, so let's just say "fine" and let you add all the words I am implying :-) Please keep it up, I'm lovin' it! Thanks to Dani for staying on top of your Birthday :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks Roxy
In a way, I think it's good to introduce these things because really, they were written by the master songwriters and perhaps, if it's a bit educational to aspiring songwriters, well, then my job is made even more pleasurable (but for the most part, I just like to play or sing the damned things!) Thanks for the kind remarks and the birthday wishes, and keep up the fine work! Michael

Well, I kind of think things were probably just as rough back then as they are now, but they were definitely simpler times and in my view, more tasteful days in music than what we have now. There's still always good music of all kinds any time, so that is good! THANK YOU so very much for stopping by and laying down the kind words--best to you both! Take care now, Michael

Couldn't wait for another 2 comments.
Great work.
Every time I hear you swing I smile. Especially now I know you used to be a bit of a metalhead back in the day.
I think I'm somewhere in the middle!
Nice
michaeljayklein said 3235 days ago (October 14th, 2010)
Actually Ted...
At my age lately, I'm doing more staggering than swinging, let me tell you! Well, I always had a metal head--fortunately no witnesses have survived to blab it around though! Thanks again partner (and yanno, I think you've hit the style that fits you like the proverbial glove--loved your latest Ted!) Thanks again and take good care now! Michael

Thanks again you--and thanks again for the wonderful birthday gift, the beautiful song you posted for me at the other site and for taking the time to be a part of Impsie's video (that TRULY caught me by surprise and my smile from it has still not warn off completely, even after getting what I would consider a very bad hair cut yesterday. You have that kind of charm over me lady!) Take good care now, and as always, so very nice to hear from you. Will write soon! xoxoxox
