More from Michael - Thursday, March 31:

"Tonight there was a small gathering of about 22 fans at Doris' hotel, The Cypress Inn, in the heart of Carmel. The theme was Doris Day in the 1960's. Lloyd Jessen, Donna Addison and Wanda Hewer co-hosted the party. The table settings and decorations were provided by Donna, and they included photos, placemats and small posters from her films.

The highlight of the evening was a phone call from Doris, who spoke to each person individually. Her voice was vibrant, clear and very upbeat. Everyone was touched by how gracious she was.

We also watched a video that I put together, with tremendous input from several other fans, titled "Doris Day: Golden Moments From The 1960's."

Scott Dreier joined us and he was as warm and personable as you could imagine. We also got to meet Doris' co-star on The Doris Day Show, Bernie Kopel. He was very nice and delightful to chat with."

Followed by a screening of Michael's film, "Doris Day - The 1960s", which I believe he is going to make available for everyone when he gets back from Carmel, so look out for that.

Sat April 2: Scott Dreier: Doris & Me

Image

Scott performed his personal tribute to Doris tonight to a room full of adoring fans and friends. He sang many of her signature songs along with several lesser known, but equally worthy numbers, including Shaking The Blues Away and Put 'Em In A Box.

His show is partially autobiographical and he is one of the most sincere and humble performers I've ever had the pleasure to see. In many respects, he expresses what many of us feel about Doris through his heartfelt performances. His show is a valentine to Doris from a talented and personable performer.

Image

Bernie Kopell and Jackie Joseph greet the audience.

Image

Image

Bernie & Jackie along with Kym Kareth and Brian Nash from "The Thrill Of It All" kick-off the auction with all of the proceeds going to the DDAF.

The pleasure is all mine.

We are hoping there will be a visit to the golf course today to see Doris, but no official word yet. Stay tuned.

Love the birthday card photo from Dorine!

Rats!! I guess Doris decided against a balconey greeting:( Oh well, she did make yahoo.news about age just being a number and last years yellow hat and sunny smile says it all. Glad everyone had a grand time. Doris sounded it too on the phone calls to the festivities.

Yes, three cheers for Michael - and you'll love his video "Doris Day - The 1960s". 8)

Ray, the Day isn't over yet! :)

To add to the birthday fun and celebrations, Paul has written a great piece honouring Doris on this special day as we remember how much she has meant to us over the years.

Happy Birth “Day” To Doris!

People Exclusive: Doris Day Speaks Out on Her 92nd Birthday:
'Age Is Just a Number'


BY LIZ MCNEIL AND JODI GUGLIELMI 04/03/2016 AT 09:00 AM EDT

Legendary songstress and screen star Doris Day turns 92 on Sunday, but she tells PEOPLE she doesn't think about her age. "I'm not really fond of birthdays anymore," she tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. "Age is just a number. How you feel and live your life is more important."

Day will spend the day surrounded by a few close friends and her beloved pets. While she spends her time quietly these days in Carmel, California, Day told PEOPLE in a rare 2011 interview: "I love life. I have my pets around me and good friends. I'm young at heart and I love to laugh. There's nothing better."

Born Doris Kappelhoff in Cincinnati to music teacher William and homemaker Alma, Day first began singing on the radio and broke through with her big-band hit "Sentimental Journey" and quickly shot to stardom.

After going solo in 1947, she successfully auditioned for Warner Bros. and was cast in a handful of romantic musicals, including Romance on the High Seas.

In 1956, she starred in Alfred Hitchcock's film The Man Who Knew Too Much, in which she recorded the Oscar-winning song, "Que Sera, Sera."

In 1959 she starred alongside Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk, which earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination, and marked the beginning of a close friendship with her co-star. "He called me Eunice," she told PEOPLE in 2011 with a laugh. "He'd come into the makeup area hollering, 'Eunice, I'll be over with a doughnut!'"

For years, she was the top box office star in the world. But off screen, Day faced many challenges, including three divorces and the death of her beloved son, Terry Melcher, in 2004. "I have had a lot of sorrow, and I still feel that," she told PEOPLE in 2011.

Day spends her days taking long walks in the garden, tending to her animals, answering fan mail and helping with her Doris Day Animal Foundation.

On Saturday, the DDAF hosted a 92nd birthday party and fundraiser in her honor. "The Doris Day Animal Foundation team is putting on another big celebration," she told PEOPLE in her statement. " And I am so grateful and honored that fans and friends come from all over the world to help support the precious four-leggers."

I can understand how Doris feels but I like to think that we, her fans, are celebrating her, not her age specifically. I don't think any of us can understand what it's like to have a 9 in front of your age number and perhaps we take that for granted with Doris?

But we know, as you age, that your body can't do what it did 5-10 years earlier as easily. And most people don't live into their 90s anyway. Bette Davis said that being in her 80s was 'awesome'. I can imagine getting to my 80s but not sure about 90s!

But we're all glad that Doris has and hope it continues.

Glad you liked these from the golf course.

Brian Nash, who played her son in The Thrill Of It All, spoke to her via cell phone and expressed how good she and James Garner were to him and Kim Karath on the set. This made Doris cry but she recovered quickly and told everyone how nice we were and how much she appreciated our being there.

There were fans from Ireland, Great Britain and New Zealand present.

And every shop I walked into today was playing Doris Day songs. The whole town is crazy about her.

The "People's" article continues to be splashed on the YAHOO lead page. The current story is amplified from the earlier one, and is under the caption LIFE STYLE. Earlier today the story was covered under the caption CELEBRITY. Try to catch it before it disappears.

FLASH!!! Just moments ago another article appeared under the CELEBRITY caption on the YAHOO newspage. This is an exclusive People"s photo of Doris with her dog Squirrely. The photo is supposed to be the most current picture of Doris, and she looks great. She was facing the camera when the photo was taken. Webmaster, see if you can capture this photo.
Happy Days, Texas Gonzalo
