I found your book at a teacher’s garage sale in Michigan... I very much enjoyed getting inside your world and greatly admire your dedication. Your work career has clearly been one bursting with meaningful moments... something I have been spending time myself thinking about as far as what I’m doing with my time - since we spend so much of our lives at work! Thank you for the inspiration to dream on. I’ve been a dreamer most of my life, but somehow let that dreaming spirit slip from my being. I’m 39 and ready to reclaim it! The book was very well-written. I enjoyed the intimate moments of your career reflections and learning Jim’s wishes upon his death... and his note to his son... “Love and forgive everybody.” And including how Jim told you that he never wasted energy in hating anybody; he had too much thinking to do.” That really got me thinking... I’m a writer and have been struggling to forgive two people who did something very awful to me... This message really helped me see the light. Thank you again. Best regards, Tracy Anderson, Haslett, Michigan

I’m writing for my daughter, her name is
Crystal Lynn McCormack
She is 41 (on November 13) she is special needs. Intellectual intelligence of a pre school level.
She has always loved Big Bird and Oscar the Gouch😉
Is there someplace that I could get her a signed picture from Mr. Spinney for her?

|Message||Hi Carol and Debra. We met you on the Amsterdam to Basel cruise July 2018 and enjoyed your company, we hope you enjoyed being with us. We are sorry we didn't get to see you in Ft. Lauderdale last week but I already have a nice picture of me with Carol. I sent that picture to one of my friends and said I met this celebrity on my cruise, who is it? And he replied immediately Carol Spinney! We look forward to seeing the special on your life. Be well. Lisa and George|

Heard your interview with CBC and congratulate you to a life well lived - though not done.|

|Message||I had the pleasure of meeting Caroll when visiting the set many years ago. It was so much fun talking to Big Bird as Oscar and seeing the smile on his face!|
The remarkable character he has created and lived for so many years has kept so many of us enthralled and loving to watch to see what happens next.
THANK you all for what you do and for making a great "television show".
|Message||Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!|
I saw you guys in Champaign-Urbana and I decided to check out your website and blog. It is wonderful!
It's fabulous to know that there are others who appreciate this remarkable man - Mr. Spinney [& his lovely wife] and the amazing world of Sesame Street!
I sooooooo look forward to seeing the documentary: I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story.
Continued Success as you celebrate this exquisite gem!
