Happy Birthday Arlene for the 15th

Post by mutti » Sun Feb 13, 2011 7:55 pm

Wishing you a year full of love, light, laughter, family, celebrations, music, more concerts of course, good fun and good friends Arlene!
It has been such a bonus to have met you through the forum and to have had the pleasure of meeting you in person at Leonard's concerts in the past years.
Your emails and phone calls have kept me laughing and happy.
I have fond crazy memories of our flight from Portland to Las Vegas!!!
I also want to thank you for your support to me on my recent adventure in India as you kept me laughing when at times I needed it.
You are an awesome woman and your 'scrapbook' and you tubes and photos have added to our memories and lives.
Thank you Arlene and keep on blessing us with your posts.
Fellow Canadian here's a toast to you dear friend!
Love Leslie 8) :lol: 8)

Happy Birthday, Arlene ~

You have the awesome chutzpah to leave 120 in the dust and I hope you do!! You know how to claim your ground and stand it... and there's no reason you won't do that with life itself!

Thank you for all your kindnesses on the Forum, on Facebook, and in person. You're a wonderful friend and bring so much of your self to everyone!

Dear, dear Arlene...

I "think" this may be in the wrong area, but who cares! A very very Happy Birthday to you (on the 15th), my sweet friend! You have influenced me more than you know. You have mega chutzpah...and a special way about you that navigates many situations! I'm certainly a better person for knowing you, and hope we remain friends...even in non-concert years! ;-)

Thank you especially for your beautiful videos (just watched Marianne from LV today...with tears), and for your awesome blog. You have shared so much with us!

Big hugs to you...and may your candles blaze forever!

Diana xoxo

I just have to say Happy Birthday Arlene,

It seems so long ago (no song pun intended) when I wrote my 100th post for which you gave me the courage to do - for that I thank you. You are a special lady; full of spirit, kindness and emotion. I will surely meet you in person next year when Leonard tours again - and of course he will ;-)

But for now, please have the best day ever! :D 8)
