    You might want to talk to Smig about that. I'm sure he'd be willing to draw a get well card, especially if its for Jerry Nelson.

    One thing though...is there proof Jerry is actually sick? I mean, we've all heard some kind of story somewhere or other, but are they confirmed? Might be a question worth answering before we send a healthy man a get well card. :)

    we'll call it a stay well card!

    LoL! Good thinkin' Sarah! :D

    Here's what's up with Jerry Nelson:

    He was sick, but I hear he is doing better. On the card I included a note saying "We heard you were doing better, and glad to hear it. We hope you stay well for a long, long, long time" Or something like that.

    So, technically, the whole "Get Well" card thing wasn't necessary. But, I didn't think of doing this till he was already better, and, it's the thought that counts.

    So, I'll include a little note on the snail-mail one as well.

    Where did you hear of his wellness?

    Secret Squirrel had said he was doing fine.
  8. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    And we should believe him because why exactly? (no sarcasm, I just wanna know..)

  9. radionate

    He's Secret Squirrel!!!

    Eh...I'm gunna need a little more convincing than that. I do love Secret Squirrel, honest I do (as well as Morroco Mole and the Yellow Pinky), but I'd like to have some back up to any rumors that might be going around. Without backing thats all they are; rumors.

    Thats why I was leery to sign the card. How do we know he was under the weather?
  12. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    Yeah. Well the way I saw it was that if he wasn't well, then like Sarah said, it could just be a "stay well" card. I think it'd be nice for him. As one of the surviving core members of the troop, I'd say that if there is anyone outside of my family I'd want to stay well, it'd be him. So, that's why I signed, but I do understand your position on it Nat-o.

    Jerry has unfortunately had some health issues for the past couple years. We are very privileged that he was able to be at the December MuppetFest (he was tentative for the September date). He is reportedly doing better now and wants to continue doing Muppets well into the future.

    I think if nothing else, it'll just be nice for him to know that his fans care about him!

    That is extremely good news. All I want is some kind of solid source for the information. Phil, can you supply?

  16. Phillip

    Phillip Administrator Staff Member

    It's from the best source possible, Jerry himself.

    Now see, thats good reporting. Hats off to you Captain Chapman. :D Stay well card it is then!

    GO PHIL!!!

    As a side note I want to know if we scared Secret Squriul away. He apears to have gone for ages!!!

    The whole point to the card was to let him know we care about him. If I'm going to be sending out a second card via snail-mail, I guess the site is open for signiatures again.

    I'm glad to hear he's doing well.

    As far as the snail-mail card goes, I can draw Robin real well. I can just picture him sitting by a pond looking up at the sky smiling with a rainbow over-head. I always loved it when Jerry performed him singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
