Please help me with a Happy Birthday photo!

TL;DR: Super corny request... If you aren't into photography or random acts of kindness, feel free to move along...


Hello everyone...

So I need some help. My wife's birthday is next week. Every year I struggle (as I'm sure many guys do) with just what to do/get. This year especially with the pandemic, everything being closed, and the fact that she doesn't give a damn about flowers or chocolates, I am having an especially hard time.

I'm an engineer working aboard a large ship. I've been at sea for 2 months, still 2 months to go before I can get home. So, I can't be there for her birthday, yet again... This is nothing new to us, but I want to do something different and special this year. I thought it would be cool to get photos from all over the world of scenic places with a handwritten note in the photo... She's pretty much the most amazing woman, at home alone for half the year, takes care of our two kids, two dogs, house, and 3 BMWs.. She lets me buy pretty much any car part I want without ever complaining... And, while I may be a bit biased, she's pretty hot too... So, yeah, she deserves all of this and then some.

Why Bimmerpost? Well, my wife is all over Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and all the other social media sites... I know I'm safe posting this on here...

So, can you help me? Can you email me a scenic/landscape photo with a handwritten note being held up? Using the following happy birthday message??

"Happy Birthday Ayren! Jon sends his love, even from ________"
(insert your location in the blank)

Include your ///M car or BMW for comedy factor as she always gives me the when I mention cars...

Please email photos to jdinisio@gmail.com


I plan to take all of the photos and put them in a slideshow (probably some corny music too) and then host the video for her online. I'll share the link here... Her birthday is 8/17, so if you can, act fast! I don't have a ton of time...

Not sure what sort of feedback this will get, but its worth a shot... Thank you in advance to the BMW community!

Also, please feel free to share this! Thanks!!

Special request - can we get all the female members to do this, but post the pictures with your face or body included in them with the caption just as Jon wanted it "Jon sends his love, even from ____" just so we can make sure Jon has the most interesting conversation he's ever had to have on his wife's birthday? Mucho gracias!

If you're interested in a pic from the French Quarter in New Orleans I can make a little sign, take a pic, & e-mail it to you. Cool idea since you can't be there. It's the thought that counts.

Well...I figure if I can fill it up, then there will be no room for me and my wife will simply be forced to take me back. There's a strategy here...

This is an incredibly thoughtful idea you have. Unfortunately you've picked just about the worst group of people to ask help from.

Let me know how many pics of people in prancercise outfits you get

If I head into downtown Charleston this weekend I'll try to rig something up for you! Great idea. My Dad is an offshore tug captain and my older brother is a 1st mate offshore, so understand that it's tough being away from home. Although my dad is 4 weeks on 4 off and brother is 6 on 6 off, so you have it a little more rough. Like everyone has mentioned, great idea and it is the thought that counts.
