Happy Birthday!!!

I'd sing, but
1. you're a bit far away to hear it, and
2. someone would need to get you earplugs as a present first. *g*

Happy day anyway!

You never know when someone
May catch a dream from you.
You never know when a little word
Or something you may do
May open up the windows
Of a mind that seeks the light...
The way you live may not matter at all,
But you never know, it might.

- Jim Clemmer

Thank you for being a person who has opened windows.
Happy Birthday, Richard!

Happy Birthday, Richard!

There is a page in my book of memories that is shared by MacGyver and Col. Jack O'Neill. Bonded by their codes of honor, their integrity, and unfailing positive attitudes, they are two very different characters, yet in many ways they are alike. A challenge to portray... a challenge well met.

I wish I had been lucky enough to have seen Legend. The imaginative combination of your inimitable humor with the drama of the Old West would, I am sure, have provided me with many wonderful moments to remember.

Thank you, Richard, for sharing your great talent, and for sacrificing your precious time with Wylie so that your ever-faithful fans may enjoy another year of Stargate SG-1.

You and Wylie are greatly loved. Good luck. God bless.

In appreciation,



I just wanted to, first, thank you for all the time you have given us over the course of your career. Sometimes it's easy to forget that the actors have their own lives and families to attend to, which makes your continued willingness to share your time with us all the more amazing.

Thank you for continuing to make time to share your talent and abilities with your fans, especially when you have a wonderful daughter that needs so much of your attention and love. Children really are the best thing that can happen to a person.

You deserve only the best this year, Richard. I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with joy and happiness and you continue to cherish every moment... because life is very short and time is precious. Here's hoping you have another fifty wonderful birthdays or more.

Happy birthday from my family to yours.

Dear Richard,

First I want to say thank you for all the hard work and effort you have put into the great sci-fi show Stargate SG-1. I started watching it because I had seen what a great actor you were in MacGyver, and you are still one of the best actors around.

You deserve the best birthday anyone could ever have and I hope you get what you truthfully deserve on this wonderful day. You are a great person and a great actor. I wish you a Happy Birthday and all the happiness and success in the world!!

Sydney, Australia

Happy Birthday, Richard!!!

I'm a French fan of you since I was a little girl, more exactly since MacGyver when I was 7 years old. No words can describe my admiration for you even if I know that you don't like very much compliments. I'm 21 years old, student in law and I live in Marseille near St. Tropez on "Cote d'Azur." I know that you like France so I hope that you'll come back in France very soon with Wylie perhaps!

My dream is to go in America since I'm young but opportunities aren't presented to me so it's still a dream for me. I love all of you but before all your mind! You are the same humour as me or I'll say rather I'm the same as you.

I have created specially a site dedicated to you and to Wylie Quinn cause I admire you and the baby also! I know that you are not a computer specialist but don't hesitate to take a look at my site cause I put many energy in it! I hope as many fans that you'll appreciate our letters cause many persons love you Richard! As we say you are as good wine you improve with years!

Happy birthday to you that this year is full of happiness and take a great care of Wylie.

In French: Joyeux anniversaire à toi que cette année t'apporte du bonheur! Gros bisous à toi et à Wylie Quinn Annarose.


Dear Richard,

I want to wish you a VERY happy birthday, and THANK YOU for being a great guy! Hope you have a great day, and celebrate well.

All the very best to you always.

Happy Happy Happy Birthday!!!! Enjoy the day... and thank you for being the man you are! You're the best, you always were and you always will... *~XxX~*


Hi Richard,

Happy Birthday

Enjoy all the time you can get with your precious daughter. Time is something one never gets back and family is the most important thing in life. May you celebrate this next birthday and many more after it with Wylie and those you love. Like a good Champagne you do improve with age. Sparkling and bubbly to the last.

Take care

Dear Richard:

Joyeux anniversaire from Canada your second home. Want to thank you for the many years of enjoyment and entertainment. It is a pleasure to watch you. Have loved you since before MacGyver... seems like forever. I am so glad there will be a season seven. Looking forward to the return of all characters. The show is exciting and funny.

You are number one in my books. We have very much in common, our likes and dislikes. I love your sense of humor. The Jack character is wonderful. He is the man every woman wants.

My favorite quote... "We do not stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing." Have a great day on your birthday and all year round. Enjoy little Wylie. She is such a cutie. You are a very lucky man.

My one wish in life... to meet you... Make my dreams come true.

Je t'aime forever.

Hello Richard

I want to wish you a mervellous happy birthday.
I love you soooooo much.

My dream should be to meet you and say "je t'aime" perhaps one day...

You are a very great actor so please please keep going.

Take care
(Have I already say that I love you???)


Hey Richard,

Just wanted to say, I'm a huge fan of yours. You're a terrific actor with a great personality. You're a great influence to fans who follow your career. Wylie is really lucky to have a dad like you.

What you do with Jack O'Neill is terrific. It was you and your portrayal of Jack that got me hooked on SG-1.

Happy Birthday. Have a great day. All the best.

"Patty Bouvier... or is it Michelle..?"

Patty Bouvier "Patty Bouvier/Michelle resents the suggestion that her life is empty and boring. First, she has Richard Dean Anderson, aka MacGyver/Jack O'Neill. She passes her days as a clerk at the District Probate Registry, administering boring legal documents all day long. She spends her nights at home, watching MacGyver and Stargate SG-1. Many, many episodes of SG-1..."

Happy Birthday, Rick

Thanks for making my evenings most entertaining. Keep up the fantastic work.

Best wishes,

[I'm sure Patty sends her regards too. ]

Heya Rick!

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson!

I wish you lots of happiness and a wonderful year with your daughter. I remember ten years ago when Desert Storm was activated and my brother went into the Air Force, I was really scared for him getting put on the front lines. You sent me an autograph saying "Best Wishes from Rick Anderson" and "Mac" in quotes. You made me feel very good. It seems when I needed extra support you would show up one way or another making my day better.

Thank you for being who you are. You are my role model and a friend. Happy birthday once again.

Your devoted fan

Dear Richard,

Heaven's above - another birthday? Why is it everyone else seems to age and you don't? What's your secret?

Whatever it is - keep on doing it because you are just looking better and better. Have a super-duper birthday and good luck with Season 7.

Win Mickleson

Happy Birthday and many, many more. Love YOUR show.

Have fun on your birthday!

San Diego

Dear Rick,

I hope you have a wonderful day. You are my fav actor. I have watched you since you were on MacGyver. When I was growing up I had a lot of issues with things. When I was having problems, I would watch MacGyver and I could tune out the outside world and it helped me deal with things a lot better. (I know that sounds stupid but it is true.)

Anyway have a happy happy Birthday, and very many more to come.

P.S. Thank you so much for doing another season of SG-1.

Love always,

I like you since quite small!!!

Dear Richard,

I wish you a very very good year, health, prosperity & happiness for 2003 and a happy birthday.

Thanks for making Jack more human. Stargate is a great show and it's always a pleasure to watch it.

I don't know what Jack's future will be but keep on making us dream.

Greetings to all the staff & crew, especially Carmen, Chris, Teryl and Don who were at the first French Convention and are so attractive. We miss them.

Big kisses from France.
