Ok ladies, I went to see Michael in Oakland last night and

wow, what a show!

Love how he's put this all together, new pyros, songs, new moves,

and the beach balls, all that confetti, what a party!!

He sounded soooo good and looked even better.

Nat 7, seemed even better, people were lovin' them, they are some talent!

The Band, what can I say, they were sooo awesome, and their solo was super.

Jumanne's solo just great!

Had 4th row seats so had some good pics, but the person next to me,

she was soooo very sweet, married with kids and we chatted for some time

before the show. We sort of clicked personalities and took pics of each other

with Michael in the background. She had a better camera so shes' sending me

the pics asap and I will try and get some up here for you as soon as I can.

She got a good pic of me at the stage with Michael behind and I got the same for

her. Such fun.

Chatted briefly with Michael after the show, just a few words said only- line wasn't that long and he went

fast through the line. He talked with everyone, but one thing, he signed my book and I told him

congrats on his engagement and he said, "Thanks so much " with this big smile.

Man, he seems happy. Maybe this IS the one girl for him! ;)

Mary,

Wow it was nice after sleeping in today, and coming here to see Michael's face on

those pictures! brought me back to last night and a huge smile.

Great pics! thanks for posting

Gram and Susan,

You two DO look like sisters my goodness. Irene, I hope I look that good in my 80's.

You should be proud. You took just great photos! So glad you had a great time too!

Well, I'm almost ready for Phoenix, leaving tomorrow, can't wait to see the girls

it's going to be really hot compared to here in the bay area.

Daryl, Our trusty bus driver, onward to Phx. drop me off, and I'll catch up with you all when I get back

Like Bobby says, "More Bublé More Often" ;)

This place is the best~ ;

Sorry, I keep editing this, I missquoted myself, in my mind somethings happened

differently ha! but I just thought of one thing I really didn't like that happened.

Michael sings Best Of Me so well. Well, he didn't do it. He tryed hard to get into the moment

for this song, and some girls in my section and the other one too kept yelling at him and saying

how much they loved him, and he lost all concentration and just put his head down and said, ok, I can't

do this when your yelling at me, then he made fun of them doing the same thing, but that didn't

stop them. He said he won't do the song, and everyone said, Oh please, he said no~

he talked with Alan a bit and then he came closer to the end of the stage and talked with everyone while they got ready for

the next song. Sad they won't even let the man do his job~~~ you could tell he wasn't too happy for

just that time, but he joked, he's such a professional!

lol~~~~I have met Michael before, and believe me I still get butterflies when I manage to get a few words

out, but many have talked with Michael. I just mean't we said a few words, it's not like I know him well.

Would be nice if I did, but no. He's so very sweet and does talk to you! It's always a special time that he

comes out whenever he does and touch all our lives~~

Michael ...... Michael .......... Michael .............

Definitely, your voice is silk, God ...........,

where you keep such beauty to sing .....?, I know ......,

a little gift from heaven ............. and likewise,

the family love that made you a good man!.

Guys ......, I'll be listening over and over again, this beautiful version of Michael.

Tell me, does not take you to heaven ...........?

If anyone calls me, and I do not answer ......., I'm in my cloud ....... :P

Oh Mary, that's a lovely vid. Now I need to get I'll Be Seeing You on my Ipod, I swear some song

comes along even if it's an older one of Michael's, and I thought I had them all! :) lol

So serene and mellow~ aaaah

LOOOVE READING ALL THE REVIEWS. DIANE WHAT A SHAME THAT SOME GIRLS ACTED SO POORLY, DIDN'T THEY REALIZE THEY WERE BEING DISRESPECTFUL TO MICHAEL AND THE PEOPLE THAT PAID GOOD MONEY TO "HEAR" MICHAEL, GUESS NOT. I READ THE LYRICS TO "BEST OF ME" REALLY AN EMOTIONAL SONG, I JUST KNOW MICHAEL WOULD HAVE PUT THAT SONG ON ANOTHER LEVEL AS HE DID WITH " YOU AND I". THATS STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITES OF HIS. WILL BE WAITING FOR THE PIC.THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING YOUR "BUBLE MOMENTS"

MARY AS YOU KNOW MY SOUND ISN'T WORKING SO I CAN'T HEAR MICHAEL SING "I'LL BE SEEING YOU" I REMEMBER THAT SONG SO WELL, DURING WORLD WAR 2, THAT SONG WAS PLAYED OVER AND OVER. THE LYRICS TELL THE STORY. MAAAARY, CAN YOU HEAR ME , YOU WAY UP IN THE CLOUDS???

TOMORROW I GO TO PHYSICAL THERAPY AGAIN, SHOULD BE VEEERY INTERESTING WHAT THEY WILL HAVE ME DO.

MUST HOBBLE ALONG FOR NOW. JUST WANTED TO DROP IN AND SEE WHO IS AT THE COTTAGE, MAYBE I'LL GO IN VIST THE SHED IN THE BACK, I MIGHT FIND IRENE THERE AND HAVE SOME "SECRET RECIPE" OF COURSE IT'S FOR "MEDISONAL" PURPOSES.

SPECIAL HUGS TO LEWIS, HUGE HUGS, (HICK-HICK) LORETTA SMILING AT YOU.

Loretta,

Thanks, those girls didn't mess up my evening though nor Michael's either~ You know how he

says it like it is! :o I will try and get a pic or more if I know how to do it later, maybe I can get some help.

I'm glad your doing ok, I know your hobbling

along, but as long as each day gets better for you.

Take care dear~

I need to finish some things for tomorrow, I'm off to Phx for MB's show there.

I'm hoping things will go well in Phx. so I can finally hear Best Of Me~ :)

I'll get back to you all probably next week.~

Hugs to you!

Everyone enjoy the ride along Michael's path, it's an awesome journey~

Hi everyone!

JOHANNA, I hope you had a very Happy Birthday--and many more!

I hope you're really enjoying getting settled in your new

apartment. Now you can spend more time doing that instead

of the Long commute. Best wishes to you. Enjoy!

MIRJAM, we're glad to hear that your father-in-law is getting

better. I hope he'll be completely well soon.

Oh yes, may I ask if May 30 is when you'll be at the show?

If so, that's not far off.

Best wishes to you and your family.

MARY, thanks a lot for all the video and picture links. I

appreciate them very much!!! It's amazing that almost every

song that he did in Portland is now on the internet somewhere.

It's really nice to be able to see them here on the board

(or the links). AND to have the ones that we've seen live

is extra special!!!

Thank you also for the link to that very lovely "I'll Be

Seeing You" video. AND the link to that cute story from

the gal about her experiences after changing her flight

plans. That's amazing.

I can't believe that another weekend is almost here. Have

a happy one!

LORETTA, it's lovely to see more of your posts! We enjoy

them very much. Thanks, too, for telling me about the

breathing aspect of the exercises with the balls. I know

i've read about that a number of times about exercising

but I need a refresher.

I certainly agree with you about IRENE and her daughter

being "twins". They are both beautiful. And they look

very classy! It's great to have the photos here on the

board! Also, the picture of WENDY and IRENE is wonderful!

I have some great ones of YOU, also, that I printed from

the board in the past. You gals are really special and

lovely.

I hope you'll do some of your great posts again before

long. We always think of you and your family. Please

take care (and enjoy all the great show stuff now that

the tour is going and people are sharing).

WENDY, thanks a lot for the pictures from Salt Lake!

AND the one of YOU and IRENE is so very good!!! We

appreciate your doing that for us to enjoy. We were

really looking forward to it. Also, it's so nice that

you took your mom to the show and gave us the neat

picture!!! Thanks a million.

DIANE, thanks so much for telling about your Oakland

show experience! I'm glad to hear that you were able

to talk to MICHAEL!

Looking forward to hearing about Phoenix!

IRENE, I love all your posts! As I've been saying to

everyone, I'm so glad to see those photos of you and

your daughter, and of you and Wendy! They're wonderful.

We're really happy that you were at the Salt Lake show!!!

Your post about it was such fun to read. As others say

to you, "you have a way with words" that is very special.

Take care!

Love to all,

Jo

Ladies and Gents.... Just wanted to update you... I'll have to leave the bus for a time tonight, as a good friend invited me "into" Staples Center for the concert. I just couldn't say no. It was so generous for this person to think of me and I'm grateful to be seeing Michael do all this music.

So.... Pam, I think you're in charge of driving and making sure everyone is tucked in. I'll be back to report.

Hugs,

D :)

Hi Jo,

The show was great, but I have to say I said I chatted with Michael, I should have said we just spoke a

few words it went quickly~ anyway you get what I mean. He was very gracious to people after the show~

Take care,

Diane

Hi All~

Home from the Phx show it's always nice to come home.

Had a great time with some friends.

Got to the venue and it was a beautiful night.

We all took some pictures outside and then when we went in

and got to our seats we all took more pictures together.

I still have to downloand them. We met some people there and talked

with them a while before the show started.

The show, well you know, it was great Michael makes every

show such fun. Marlene and I were front row in one sect and my other friends

were front row in the next sect. We all got to the stage in front of Michael

and he made contact with everyone in the venue. He sure played to the whole arena.

When he goes to the middle of the crowd he is very endearing to them and wants them

to have as much fun as the people in the front.

The night was like a party. Everyone was singing and dancing while beach balls and

confetti were floating all around. I tried to take some good pictures and get some

video, I'll see if I can figure out how to get a vid on here. I'm not too good with that.

Maybe Marlene will add to this, her recollection.

It's funny how it takes so long for your show to come and now I've been to two already

this year and it's gone in a flash! Maybe the next leg I'll be able to get a few more in.

We waited a bit for Michael but he didn't come out after the show, unless he did after we left, but I don't think so

cause he had the L.A. show to do the next day.

What a night! The weather was Ideal, around 80 or so degrees.

I came home to a windy evening, and now today it's a terrible rainy day.

Cold, dark, and dreary, but I have my Michael memories to keep me warm! :D

Marlene, it was great seeing you and it was all such fun.

That's all folks! ;)

Marlene.........I wish...........I had to wait till my granddaughter came over............I am a spastic when it comes to details........And

by the way ......my real name is Shirley Irene...............I told Michael it was Shirley.........My Moms name is Irene Hope..........for real.....

and by the way......when I saw Michael I had 55 gandchildren...........And so he put 56.............I thought it was so cute of him...............And

I wanted to let you see it .............I have been telling you all about it......Time for some proof...............It was really sweet of him to ask

me to adopt him?................I mean.....are you kidding.........I wanted to kidnap him...............Duh!.............................I mean.....How many

miracles can happen in one night?..................He is just a doll.................It was a special little thing .........but I wanted to share...............

I backed out showing him the poster at the concert...........He even asked .........Anyone have a poster?................... I think he was looking

for it because I had posted that I was going to do it...........I know.......I blew it..............Sooo!............He waved at me.......and I was tickled

...............I am so impressed at how he has taken this challenge........and did all the right things.........Sure he had good promotors......but

if Michael wasn't Michael...............This wouldn't all be happening..............It is his charm and mystic and charisma and his personality that

has captivated his audience.............You can do all the promoting in the world.........and without a Michael...........you will have just another

ding a ling.............................................................lovin ya all...................Gram Irene............

Hi everyone! I like so much to come "Home",

we are many here and in such harmony.

Dear Marlene, how nice to see you here, hope all is well for you.

Oh Ireneeeeeee, thanks for that photo,

I loved seeing what Mchael wrote for YOU,

thanks, thanks, thanks for sharing with us,

I imagine how you would feel at that time ..........

Michael is a golden boy with a heart of gold, he is always so attentive to all of us,

he always tries to please the extent of its possibilities, and,

as every one of us is always something about him, though we have not talked with him,

or do not have the picture with him, everything is much much more there,

because he gives us everything from the stage, then,

how not stick with something of him own when he gives everything

and so honestly and with love ................

I wonder who went to see some critics .........,

I can not understand that Michael's voice does not reach the depth of some people,

but ............... that is something that always happen, so that they are very few.

The final installment of Michael with "Song for you"

is something to touch the stones, after almost 2 hour show,

he still wants to give us more, maybe not the perfect version,

perhaps not any notes in the right tuning, but I do not see that,

because at that moment, Michael is giving his heart,

he is telling us, this is for you, take it

and save it in your memory forever, and we do Michael, we do ............

Please, caress your soul, and just enjoy it ..........

The sweetest night for everyone.

Gram Irene, thank you so much for sharing that with us. What a treasure! I never doubted you for a second but it is such a treat to see the real thing. When I was in Pittsburgh, Cindy and Becky gave him cookies after the show like they always do. He was passing them out to the security people and sharing them with others on the bus. I built up the nerve and asked him if I could have one. Well, he was nice enough to give me one. I started to eat it but decided to keep it as a souvenir instead. A picture is attached.

Mary, thank you for asking, I am very well.1271131841.jpg

And that is why I adore you so........xoxoxoxoxoxo

Marlene.............careful with all those big words.............Thanks for being so kind........When I found out I was blind after I

had my first baby....and had to get glasses........My husband said....."Well done Hon.......Your nose doesn't look so large"..........Did I tell you we laugh a lot in our family?...............After he got back up and dusted himself off........He reminded me .....He was just kidding......And

I reminded him.........."So was I..........are you hurt dear?"..................

.That cookie is too cute..........He mentioned one time......he got cookies..........And that was you?......Good thinking....................And you are

keeping it?..........Are we nutty or what?...............He's too cute...................I would have done the same thing.............Let's see......You can

mod podge it .....after it dries out...........It will make it shiny and you could use it for a decoration......maybe with a little rubber mouse

.....as if it had a nibble?.......................Like they do to rolls and bread for decorations?.................We have done that in Relief Society.........

So............yeah!..............we have done simply dashing things................Who wouldn't love a choc. chip cookie with a mouse on it in their

kitchen?...............It's a winner...........
