"Mom Amber Bublé....Got a Minute?"

Loretta....

yesterday when I read your post I got

weepy......Of course you mentioned my favorite

Michael song...."You give your hand to me."...

If that song lacks the power to change the

solar system I'll miss my guess.....It sends me

out into the atmosphere.....I just have no words.......

I'm sure I left them on one of the space

stations I visited.....When he screws up his nose on that DVD.....{Gram passes out}.....

And further more....Has no desire nor any

intention whatsoever of returning to planet earth.....

If that explanation was not sufficient I

can go further.....

I truly felt where you were....As I was

feeling all the same things.....I gotta go lay

down for a minute....I'll try to get back with

you a little later.....

Love you bunches.....Gram boobay...Yo!

MY MIND GETS SO CLUTTERED WITH ALL THE EVERY DAY LIVING, MICHAEL IS MY "UNCLUTTERER" MY HERO OF SONG, COMES FLYING THRU THE AIR ON A SONG AND RESCUES ME FROM ALL THE CLUTTER. JUST LIKE IN THE OLD MOVIES, DAMSEL IN DISTRESS,CALLING OUT, HELP, HELP. HERO HEARS HER CALL, COMES ALONG AND SWEEPS HER UP JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME, AAHH, THANK YOU MICHAEL AND YOU DIDN'T NEED A CAPE OR HORSE, ALL YOU HAD TO DO IS OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND THOSE BREATH TAKING NOTES SAVED ME, AAAH , MY HERO OF SONG, "MY RULER OF SONG" LONG MAY YOU REIGN.

WENDY, HOW SWEET TO THINK OF ME AND MY TOMATOES WHEN YOU PICK YOURS. WE ONLY PLANTED TOMATOES. I USE TO DO ALOT OF GARDENING AT OUR FORMER HOUSE. THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT WORKING IN THE EARTH, PLANT SEEDS AND WATCH THEM GROW THAT SATISFIES THE SOUL. WENDY YOU SAID IT'S THERAPUTIC YOU ARE SO RIGHT, I LIKE THE "FEELING" I GET FROM IT.

Wendy,

You have a beautiful family. The boys are just adorable. I love those candid photos the best. My boys are now 12 and 15 and don't want their picture taken, so enjoy this age when you can snap away. I'm sending all my best to your husband and his bar exams. God bless.

Irene,

You are so right. Michael is an old soul, this is something I have felt for so long. It comes through in all he does.

IRENE, I LOVE BOTH DVD'S. YOU CAN SEE HIS GROWTH AS A PERFORMER RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES. I FIND IT VERY EXCITING WATCHING HIS CAREER GROW, AND GROW, THERE ARE NO BOUNDRIES FOR MICHAEL AND HIS BAND. I LIVED WATCHING SINATRA AND ELVIS CLIMB THE LADDER OF SUCCESS, THEN FOR A PERIOD I SORT OF DRIFTED AWAY. MICHAEL CAME ALONG AND "POW" AS IF, ALI GAVE ME A LEFT HOOK. I KNOW YOU FEEL THAT WAY TOO, HE JUST KNOCKED US OUT OF OUR STUPOR AND WE BECAME ALIVE AGAIN. WE ARE PROOF THAT GRANNYS NO LONGER JUST SIT IN A ROCKING CHAIR, WE ARE TO BUSY ROCHIN WITH BUBLE. HAVE A NICE EVENING AND STAY COOL. HUGE HUGS, LORETTA SMILING AT YOU.

Anne...Amber...and you all.....

Out of the mouth of babes.....And you

all needn't wonder why this is my ritual each

morning when I wake up......

What a Masterpiece that was to me.....As I

already value these sweet little innocent and so

wise...{Not yet tarnished by the world} spirits

and also may I add.... could it possibly be....They are carrying a bit more wisdom than their years could have possibly allowed them.....

Thank you Anne......I loved the last one

especially.....The little boy that sat on granpas lap to help him cry......

This is what each of you do for me...And

I guess what Michael has done for me that is his greatest gift of all to me....And as long as

I have searched.....I have only this minute been

able to find the correct words......

He has helped me cry....As have all of you.......We all have pain.....But someone once

said...We have to go through it....Not around it...Not bury it.....As it turns into a cancer

somewhere in our system....

Our emotions are the path out of where

the atom of what we really are resides.

We have to feel our way through it.....

And with some it is very deep....And it takes a

long time....And sometimes we just have to learn

how to live with it.....

Thank you again Anne.....

I have to share with you one of the sweetest things ever ever that was said to me...

....And It was a number of years ago but said

to me by one of my choice little grandsons.....

While yet a young little boy......He said this..

"Granma.....When I grow up...I want to marry a girl that loves me as much as you love

Granpa.".......

If you lived to be three thousand years old.....Could your ears ever hear anything more

precious.....

I can't see the keyboard...They once again

have been drenched by a cloud burst...The splashes have caused a friggen flood.....{Is that the right word?}...

Till later you have my love.....From

Gram BooBay and all her little recruits.....

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo...Yo!

Ann, thanks so much...these little ones, with such big hearts, should rule the world. Quite inspiring...I cant choose which one I like best, they are so FULL of LOVE, the right meaning of love. But I have to tell you one that brought a big smile on my face, cause its all about why we are here, among other things....

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you"...isn't that what Michael does everytime he sings and gives his all to his fans...little stars come out of him, he spreads that love that was instilled in him when he was growing up...eventho many say that he is "an old soul"...I say that he carrys around that little boy he once was and spreads that "pure love" that only the little ones know how.

Another one I liked a lot was of the boy conforting an adult without saying anything...just being there...just sharing in silence...just helping him to cry...when words cant be found just being there helps more than a million words.

Ann, you made my day...thanks!!! Many hugs to you and all the Bublé Girlies.

ANNE, Thank you very, very much for your post! It brought tears of love to me--such beautiful words of wisdom from the little ones!!! It's very touching!

BORICUA, As you said, it's too bad that the same outlook is not so much a part of our world leaders. Yes, there are some wonderful folks dedicated to helping the world, but I can only hope and pray that they will soon be the majority that rules.

Take care!

To Amber....and you all.....

I had to come back....And clear the air

just a bit......

Sometimes when I reread things I've

written....I hope you all don't have the impression all I do is cry......

There are a few other things....I've been going through a lot of the reviews and a lot of the photos of the recent concerts.....

And Have you had recently many moments when you wanted to push Pause in your life....I mean really......That the moment was too exhilarating

to pass........

That's just the exact thought I had .....

As I remembered the feeling that I had when I

was attending the four concerts that I did to

see Michael......I just wanted to push PAUSE....

And then stay there....The experience was so

totally satisfying...I wanted so badly to make it last longer......

And you wish somehow there was some other

avenue that same sensation could be yours....As

concerts are so expensive and hard to get to...&

very rarely very close to you.....

He just is such a delight....And there is

just nothing compared to actually seeing him in

person.....And up close......

I said before in my own review....That he

has breathtaking strikingly good looks.....When

you see him up close....Your senses go into a

kinda shock melt down....Your voice goes into a

Coma Mode....Your eyes go into utter disbelief..

........But you have this little voice within

you saying....."Be Strong...No one need know you

are such a dork!"..........

Also...."Don't cry....You are even uglier

when you cry."......

I imagine when Michael reads all these things....He thinks...Yeah right!......

He as young as he is...Has no idea...That

what I am saying is true.....He could certainly

be catagorized as one big beautiful splash into

our life.....And if it wasn't such a morish one

........But.....He has become the desert in my

day.......

He often puts the whip cream on a very

mundane day....With a cherry and some pecans....

He makes me look up....Because there is where our brightest light comes from....It can

also be called hope and an energy to keep that

flame inside of us burning....That we might one

day be fed and nurtured by this kind of influence from a daily diet....instead of having

to search for it......

To me....Michael has teased us with a bit

of what is awaiting all of us....A real genuine

love that he has been touched with and has been

impressed from another place to share it...Even

tho he might not fully comprehend why.......

And why couldn't that be?....The entire

earth was created out of love.....If anything

justifies a renewal or a rebirth or a reminding

this is what it needs be.....

It was the purpose in the beginning that

the earth was created....And all it ever needed

to survive....But the lack of... will in the end

be the reason for its destruction....As we are

witnessing on a daily basis.......

Yeah!.....Its out there.....But we still

have control over the influences in our day....

No matter what....And I prefer to listen to the

voice that makes everything beautiful....And I cast my vote for Michael......

He is the sunshine in my day.....Thanks

Michael.......

From just a little generic Granma who was

born out west where Cowboys and Indians are still very much a part of our heritage.....And

who still has an old soul but a very young spirit ....And taken up a liking to a certain

young charmer who has lit up the horizon like

Every day was the 4th of July.......

And whats more the sparks just fly behind

him and light up the sky where ever he decides

to light up and cause another little explosion

......Everybody does something well....He just

lights up the skies.....

When I see Michael....I see fireworks en

route going somewhere waiting to happen.....

This Michael of ours is one of a kind ....

Michael...You have only one more concert before

you hit the sands of Hawaii.....Want to stop

en route....I'll be taking some hot bread out of

the oven the minute you arrive at my door....

Also I live a hop skip and a jump away from

McDonalds....Burger King....Taco Bell....Taco time.....

It will be our secret.....I have a feeling

the whole family will want to come with you to

Hawaii.....Bring them all....We have a georgeous

Ice Hockey Rink here....Remember the Winter Games in Utah?.......Lets see what ever else can

I tempt you with?.....Hmmmmmmmm.......

I'm still thinking.....

Wishful thinking.....But I am so sincere

in how welcome you would be....Well...this is

way long again.....Till next time.....

Gram BooBay and all her little recruits...

Love ya!xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo...Yo!

DEAR AMBER, AND FRIENDS,

I BRIEFLY SEEN AN AD IN A MAGAZINE FOR THE GIFTED COMIC BILLY CRYSTAL, I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS A BOOK OR DVD BUT NEXT TO HIS PICTURE WAS A QUOTE OF HIS " NO ONE CAN EVER TEACH THE BEAUTY OF YOUR TOUCH." OOH MY GOODNESS THAT BLEW ME AWAY. IT'S SO TRUE. I CAN'T TEACH THE BEAUTY OF MY MAMA'S HAND COMFORTING ME WHEN I WAS SICK OR SCARED. OR THE THE BEAUTY OF MY HUSBAND'S TOUCH. I CAN TALK ABOUT IT BUT, CAN'T TEACH THAT. THESE ARE HAPPENINGS INSIDE OF ME THE WORDS DON'T DISCRIBE.

IRENE THAT BARNABY BOY NAMED BUBLE HAS US IN A WHIRL OF NOT ONLY FIREWORKS BUT THE CANNON GOING OFF IN THE 1812 OVERTTURE.." HE MAKES US FEEL SO YOUNG, HE MAKES FEEL THAT SPRING HAS SPRUNG, BELLS TO BE RUNG AND A WONDERFUL FLING TO BE FLUNG AND EVEN IF WE'RE OLD AND GRAY, MICHAEL WILL ALWAYS MAKE US FEEL THIS WAY CAUSE, MICHAEL MAKES US FEEL SOOOO YOUNG". I TOOK LIBERITIES WITH THE LYRICS. WAS IT SAMMY CAHN THAT WROTE THE LYRICS TO "YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO YOUNG"? ?? MICHAEL HAS "THAT MAGIC TOUCH" BUT THATS ANOTHER SONG AND I DON'T KNOW THOSE WORDS. HAVE A GREAT NIGHT.

SPECIAL HUGS TO LEWIS, LORETTA SMILING AT YOU.

To Swooninggrany and all you lovely ladies,

I, too, check this thread every morning before I go to work and in the evening before going to sleep because the inspiration I find here is amazing.

I loved your improvised lyrics, swooninggrany, and how true they are, how true they are indeed.... "He makes me feel so young...........". Coming up on a big milestone birthday, those lyrics really help a lot because I still feel 25 but when I look into the mirror I want to break it into a million pieces!!!!!

I have some lyrics of my own for this mesmerizing and oh so talented Michael Buble'.....

"Spiderman, Spiderman....

Friendly neighborhood Spiderman...

Spins a web, any size.....

Catches ME just like a fly.........

Look out, here comes the Spiderman".

To top it off, at his live concerts he doesn't release me from his web until he walks off that stage for the last time after the encore.

When Michael sings the first few notes of "Feeling Good" at the start of his show, I have had strangers, (yes, men, too) who were sitting next to me at a concert whisper to me "Can't you just feel the electricity in the air?". Yup, that would be affirmative, Houston. Affirmative for lift off!

There's nothing like second row seats (or better yet, first row seats) to let him catch your eye! I am not good at eye contact at all and am very shy, but at a recent concert my husband marveled how when Michael caught my eye one time that must have lasted for about 10 seconds, I couldn't NOT look at him. My first tendency was to slump down ever so low in my chair, but I absolutely could not break his gaze even if I wanted to. His eyes sparkle and shine with such kindness and he is so unintimidating! There goes that web spinning again.....I would like to say "Stop it, Michael!", but that would be so silly, indeed!

Like I said, he spins a web any size and catches ME just like a fly. To have such great God-given talent is almost a crime! That kind of goes with the Spiderman theme, too.

Yeah, Irene, it's Michael's fault for being first in line in heaven when they passed that out talent!

Amber, Irene, Swooninggrany, Ditto, and all the lovely ladies on this thread, I bid a sweet good-night to you all!

Laurie

To Amber...and you all.....

I'm sure Michael is on his way to the

Islands unless it is cancelled because of the

Tropical Hurricane scheduled.....I have a strong

feeling you might be with him.....

It would be the perfect vacation.....You

wouldn't be bothered with a lot of fans....And

It would be a celebration of the end of a long long grueling tour.....

I felt kinda sorry for Michael....I just know he got tired of singing that same tour over

and over and over again...With the same lineup

and the same jokes......

I am really anxious to hear about how it

went.....

Those people will love him.....As the island people are very lovable people...And music is huge in their life.....

But as one of the band members already said

......Wherever Michael goes....Regardless of what country it is....They all love him.....How

would it be?.......

I just know he will fall in love with the

people....They are for the most part very home

grown....Close to home and family....And lots of

food and they sing as much as they do anything..

You know the saying....You can take the

boy out of the home....But you can't take the

home out of the boy.....I just feel that Michael

is very strong in his love for home and family..

You often take a leave of absence ....At

different times....But you always come back to

your beginning.....

Well to all of you who are still up....Have

a good night and see you in the morning.....

Gram Boobay...and all her little recruits..

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo....Yo!

I can only imagine how happy he might be to get a new group of songs to sing.....

Hi to Amber and all my Buble Buds.......

Loretta....I needed a smile...And you

gave me one....I can sit and laugh at all the plans that we have made... things we have joked about.....And haven't did yet......

But I do have some new facts and figures

to report.......And some very good news.....

Our worth is increasing by the moment....

Each of these things have added to our worth...

Because the value of each of them goes up with

the aging process.....The silver in our hair...

The Gold in our teeth....The stones in our Kidneys.....The lead in our feet....And the gas

in our stomachs.....{You know the price of gas

has gone up}.......

We have every right to be rockin Grannies

......And we can add a couple of gentlemen

swingers to our new swingin life.....We gotta

choose some with the color green....I think they

could get us to Hawaii in ASAP.....

Remember our others....Do we really want

to give them the invite?.....You know who I mean

.....There was Arthur Ritis.....He was always a

pain.....And then Will Power....He just almost

invited himself.....And then Ben Gay....He kinda

smelled .....And then there was Charlie Horse...

.....He really had too many moves.....And then

the last was Al Zeimer...This guy didn't know

straight up....He couldn't even remember his

name......

What do you think?.....Like you said it

may not matter much if they are out of it....We

in our Coconut Bras and grass skirts....We'll

swish our way right up in the front of the hall

where he is performing.....How about it... Babe?

I can get us to the Airport in my Harley..

Maybe we'll have to hire a couple of dates....

You know how Kat did in the Wedding Date?...We

can take the Red Eye....And with our looks Hon

....No Sweat.......It's a Go.....

P.S.....Don't forget your drugs....And your

Oxygen Tank....And your C-Pap......Start packing.....I'll be flying by your house in about an hour.....Remember I have a Turbo Engine

Mega Horse Power.....I've already left...

See you in ten.....Gram Yo!.....

Ladies, that belly laugh was just what the doctor ordered for me tonight!!

Could we hook my side car up to the Harley? I mean, I'm not a granny yet, and certainly I wouldn't be as stunning as you two in the coconuts and grass skirt, but could I be your mascot or tour guide or something? PLEEEEESE??

Just now have a few minutes with the laptop, so here I am, reading and laughing my head off...see that Gram Irene and Gram Loretta are on to a new adventure...come on...dear Granies...could you posibly get there fast cause want to know if you both caught up to Michael...hold on to your grass skirts and give him the chase of his life... let me know how the luah (sorry, spelling please) went...oh, how I wish to be on that adventure. Now on a more serious term...remember I said a few days ago that I overworked myself...ha, ha...the darn sands of the Saharra are back in town...and there is certain "system" coming towards us that could posibly in the next few days become a tropical storm or a huricane...Ah, well...here we go again...thats life in the Caribbean... If its not the sands, it can be storms or volcano ashes...never a "dull day". I wont worry...just will take it easy with my music...with Mr. Bublé.

Take care everybody...as always...nice to be HOME

Hello everyone

Just saying hello and thanking you for all your delightful words of wisdom.You always make me laugh so much and it is a wonderful way to start the day.

Once I get in the car to go to work I have Michael singing in my ear every morning and I do not mind being stuck in traffic.It is usually a 6 song trip but who cares if I get to hear 7 or 8 I can take it.(LOL)Those teenage girls I teach will just have to wait for their Math's lessons.I am probably even calmer than normal.

Anne

Those words descibing what love is from those littlies was priceless.That is one that will be doing the rounds at work.

I must go as I am having the family over for dinner tonight.

Take care everyone

Anne

To all my sweet friends.....Whom I have

grown to love so much......

I wanted so badly to respond yesterday to all the goings on.....But like so

many times I have to wait for the right words to

come.....

Words are important as they attempt to

verify what we think....My point is very well

taken in this little story.....Here it is.....

This is about a very young sociable Indian student on crutches who won many scholastic honors and the respect of his classmates...One day a classmate asked the cause of his deformity

...........

When the Indian boy answered.."Infantile

Paralysis".....The classmate further questioned.

..."With such a misfortune how could he face the

world?"......"OH..The Indian boy replied with a

smile...The disease never touched my heart."

Disability is a matter of Perception.....

This is the jist of my story......And the heart

of this post.....

When we perceive correctly.....It usually

comes after we have mastered an amount of self

control to first try to see with our heart instead of our eyes.....

Often times our eyes will fool us....But

our heart seldom will.....We can become a slave

to a weakness until we have become its master...

Disabilities come in many forms....Physical

is only one.....And then to many it is not a

disability at all....As it allows them the ability to see things in a broader range.....

And also they seldom come up short as their

ability to compensate in other ways make them

stronger...wiser...and better balanced.....

When we see with our heart....We look beyond the outer coating....That which only houses the important and vital part of each of

us.......This house we live in is called our body......

Some of these houses are older and pretty

beat up....But it is the least most important

part of a person...

But when you finally master your perception and see beyond an old shingled house......

......And see the pure heart that lives within

that is when you have truly achieved something

that is beautiful.....

When this happens....It is like we have

had a complete overhaul and a tune up and our

oil changed.....What has really happened?....

Nothing....Except our perception has changed....

This.....To me is the secret of life....

The world is what it is.....That doesn't change

.....But our perception is why it appears to some disgusting and ugly.....

And to some like these immigrants that want a better life....And to those in the world who have nothing....Think if they had what we have.

.......They would be living in Utopia or on a cloud.....

The only thing that makes some of us appear younger and some older is that we came

down from heaven before or after someone else...

I'm not sure age is a word in heaven....We

all do the same thing....Only at different times

.......

This is my explanation why we.. at any age

can love what Michael does with equal enthusiasm

......As our spirits are all the same age....

Our spirits don't grow old...just our bodies

....What makes some younger....is they haven't been here as long.....

Another little example of perception....

You all know Flip Wilson....In order to teach

his children something valuable....He went to an

animal shelter and got the ugliest bull dog he

could find.....He wanted to teach his children

to not take things at face value....Behind this

ugly face they found more love than they knew

existed.....The children saw the love that was

behind the face......Well done Flip!

This is just a basic little thought that

we sometimes can get totally misguided by what

we see.....Unless we see with our heart.....

I loved to be able to have an opportunity

to say this as I have thought it for so long...

And also it verifies so many of us.....Why so

many different races....genders....young and

old alike....can love Michael so much....Because

we have been touched so deeply by something we

all have in common.....

We have been brought into this circle of

love that radiates from Michael....Through the

spirit that surrounds him.....His spirit seems

to be magnetized.....We are drawn to him....And

it is a spirit to spirit thing.....It is also a

heart to heart thing....

Our heart recognizes love....And responds

to it.....Whatever else Michael is or does....

He radiates love.......

That is the part of him that we can't seem

to get enough of.....That is where his power is......

I just would imagine to not be able to

detect love wherever it might be would make you

a likely candidate for the most disabled of all

.......

One thing for sure....Being on this little

forum and loving Michael has enhanced the strength of our influence that we each radiate

individually.......

And how can you love Michael and not be

brimming to overflow wherever you might go with

the love he puts out there for anyone in hearing

distance to absorb....put in their tank....And

fuel their engine.....You can even function on

cruise.........

There is one thing we all have and we can

not run away from....And that is the influence

that we each radiate.....

We each have a responsibility to our personal influence....The effect of our words

and acts is tremendous in this world.....

One philosopher remarked...."If you can do

just one thing well....You are needed by someone

somewhere"......

Not all have Michaels gifts.....

This comes from Dear Abby.....

"I gave to a beggar from my little store of well earned gold...He spent the shining ore

and came again...still cold and hungry as before......

I gave a thought..and through that thought of mine he found himself..the man supreme...divine...Fed, clothed and crowned with

blessings manifold....and now he is hungry no

more".....

I guess these just have been thoughts....

Maybe to help us in our perception of how we

see things......

We all change in our life from minute to

minute....As one gentleman puts it....."Every

single man has an atmosphere or a radiation which is affecting every person in the world...

You cannot escape it."......He also said that

no one can escape for one moment the radiation

of his character"........

That is kinda scary......But the inner part

of me says that is very true.....Even tho I don't completely understand it.....

But when you think about it.....Just by

having someone on our mind....They have an influence over us......{Michael for instance}

OK....This is way enough....I have bent

your ears too long already.....But I didn't post

yesterday so I made up for it this morning....

Forgive me....But I hope you don't mind

shooting the breeze with a winter lady....Yeah!

She has been around for a while....But long enough to see a lot of beautiful things today

that I didn't see yesterday.....

Have a beautiful day....And remember you

are radiating.....Along with all of your other

duties that come along.......

Love ya all.....Gram BooBay along with

all her little recruits.....Yo!
