    Tina, my 3.5 year old daughther, has developed this interest for Garth a couple of months ago.

    I don't play his music every day, but when I do, she always knows: "That's Garth Brooks!"

    Yesterday she made a sticker-drawing and told me she wanted to send it to Garth. (I think I will send it to GB Management, although I am not too sure how much they will appreciate it...)

    And this morning, she was playing with a telephone (toy) and she was calling Garth. They did not have a long conversation, and I got a chance to talk to him too (thank you, Tina, really appreciated that! ). The first time that she said she wanted to call him, was on his birthday. Since we live abroad, we always call the family members and friends who are having their birthday to sing to them. She was quite upset with me when I told her that we couldn't call him, because I didn't have his phone number. So we ended up singing Happy Birthday to Garth next to the telephone, hoping he would somehow hear it anyway!

    I don't have a lot of time to spend on PG (as you may have noticed... ), but this was just something I wanted to share with you.

    Awwwww Marjolijn that was so sweet!

    Tell Tina that someday she'll not only get to "pretend" talk to Garth on the phone, but she will get to talk to him in person. I can see now that with her young age and her being the fan she is, this is destined to happen!

    Garth has a special place in his heart for the little kids and I am sure he would be very touched to hear about Tina!

    Life is too short NOT to be a Garth Brooks fan!

    I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day!!!

    Thanks Brian and Mary-Liz!

    Hmmm... I am just thinking now, that we could try calling GBM next year on his birthday and sing to the answering machine - should be no problem because of the time difference. (Has anyone got the number for me? - Do they have an answering machine?)
    Yes, I like the idea.

    Very cute story! Somehow kids identify with Garth really well. He connects with them because he doesn't treat them like kids. I think that's why they love him so much.

    Wow, thanks for all your nice reactions!

    And thanks for the effort, Vanessa. I hope it will work out. You could also e-mail me the number, as I am not sure whether they would like to have their telephone number on such a public forum.

    So Cute

    That is such a cute story, thanks for sharing Marjolijn, that is so sweet.

    Is Tina becoming as big a Garth fan as you?

    Next time im sure Garth would love to hear both of you sing Happy Birthday to him.

    Did you have a good time in London the other week, I was supposed to come to, but I couldn't get time off work. Angela and Ros sent me that picture, ya'll looked as though you were having a blast.

    Hi Hannah,

    Well, Tina asks me with every country song that she hears: "is it Garth Brooks?" So, I don't know whether it is only Garth that she really likes, or just country music in general.

    Yes, we had a good laugh in London. Shame that you could not come too! Maybe we'll be able to meet up another time?
