Happy 77th Birthday Robert Redford

Mr. Redford, 

I've known since I was 13 years old when I first saw you in "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" that I would be your devoted fan for my entire life! Even the day I saw you at the Sundance Ski Resort during my college years didn't change anything. Being the serious college student that I was, I took ski classes in the morning and in the chances that I see you would be much greater. And on the day I saw you in the resort, I was quite surprised at how short and thin you were. However, I can assure you that didn't change anything! 

On the day I got married to my husband in 1983, a friend of mine saw my husband and said: "I see you married your Robert Redford!"...yep, I was always partial to blondes with blue eyes, just like you. I'm forever your fan...even now that you're old and quite wrinkled. (hey, but who isn't!) 

A friend of mine saw you once recently and noticed how much your face has aged, and said: "He looks like he's had a happy life...You can tell he's done a lot of smiling." I hope that's what people will say about me.

Happy 77th Birthday! I'm sure you agree! I look better in this photo than Barbra Streisand did!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 68th Birthday Steve Martin!

"I wanted to expand my life in the way Leonardo da Vinci did. And that's why I took up juggling.
I know what you're saying you're saying: Steve, where do YOU find time to juggle?
Well, I juggle in my mind.
...whoops!" --SteveMartin

Dear Steve,
Hoping you found time to juggle on your 68th birthday yesterday!  I wish I'd known you when you lived in Garden Grove. I know we would've been great friends...if I'd been born. From one Orange County-an to another...
Regards, Mrs Love
PS. Happy to report I've read ShopGirl 100 times...and counting!

Happy 69th Birthday Sam Elliott!

Dear Sam Elliott, 
Have you ever fallen in love with a voice? And every time you hear that voice your heart skips a beat? <sigh> Probably not.  Well I have. I fell in love with your voice (and your moustache too!) in 1976 when I saw you in Lifeguard. <swoon>

Today you are 69 and your voice still makes me swoon!

I think tonight calls for a Sam Elliott movie marathon! Conagher, Tombstone, Gettysburg, Mask...just to name a few. 

And quite honestly, your voice makes me want to go out and buy a Dodge Ram and I would, except for the fact that my husband works for Ford! Sorry Sam, if I bought I Dodge, my husband might leave me. :(

Happy 69th Birthday!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 72nd Birthday Martha Stewart!

Happy 72nd Birthday Martha Stewart...I'm still trying to be "a good thing!"

Dear Martha,
Happy 72nd Birthday! 

Many years ago, I got to meet you at a book signing event at the South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA. I took my 2 daughters with me. They were so little then. Anyway, as we waited in the long line, anxiously hoping to meet you, my daughter Julie was standing in the path where you were to come through. Suddenly you and your entourage came through and you had to ask my daughter to move. You put your hand on her shoulder and said, "Excuse me, dear." Julie looked up and saw you face to face. She said wanted to scream!

When my daughter returned to the line where I was, she was so excited to tell me what had just happened. Two men who were in line behind us, heard the whole story, screamed and told my daughter to never wash her shoulder again! Now that's taking it a bit too far! Yes, Martha, we are fans, not psychopaths! 

Have a wonderful birthday with your grandbabies!

Regards, Mrs Love
