Happy 80'th Birthday Leonard!

If you do take up smoking again, please remember not to inhale or better yet, maybe try some of the e cigarettes (cappuccino flavour is nice).

Happy Birthday, Leonard!

Congratulations on completing your 80th solar cycle! I look forward to hearing your new album tomorrow, and hope we meet again, at least once, in this incarnation.

Dear Leonard,
Its been 45 years since I first heard you sing. You have been with me ever since. Thank you for the songs, the poetry, the tears and the joy. Thank you for Marianne, for Suzanne, especially for Nancy. Thank you for Closing Time,If It Be Your Will, Dance Me and I'm Your Man and Hallelujah (before it got famous). Thank you for helping a 15 year old girl get through being a 15 year old girl and a 16 year old girl and on until now. . I listen to your songs, new and old and I still feel 16. You have changed so many peoples live in so many ways. Thank you for getting on that stage the first time and for all the times I've seen you perform since.
Wishing you so many years more: more joy, more songs and if you please, more concerts!
I'm Your Fan,

Dear Leonard,
I have been watching the dates this year and I am happy to wish you a wonderful 9th decade beginning today. And I particularly want to thank you for your support in the summer of 2006, when my marriage was breaking up and your albums were the only music in my CD player for four solid months. Your balance, wisdom and perspective were an anchor at a time when nothing else made sense and no one seemed to understand me. You never know how your work will affect others, and your work has meant the world to me when I most needed it.
Thank you,

May peace be upon you as you mark the anniversary of the beginning of your life.

May God grant you many more years,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few,
And heaven is overflowing.

Happy Birthday Leonard.
Love, Joan.
