Things are popping in Memphis, Tennessee at Graceland! August 8-16 is ELVIS WEEK! There will be all sorts of events and special stuff happening. For a full schedule and more details, click this link:
I’ve been to Graceland and it’s such a memorable experience. I wasn’t there for Elvis week, but I think it’d be great to be there. The next best thing would be to hop on this link and do the live stream – yeah! That’s my plan.
I like the idea of having the children’s karaoke – kids 17 and under are invited to sing their favorite Elvis song. It’s weird to think that anyone doesn’t know who he was, I mean – the generation right after mine was clueless about Elvis (and most things political – but I digress…) Isn’t it a great idea to keep Elvis alive, so to speak – keep his music alive by having the little ones sing it? That’s brilliant.
Does anyone else appreciate the “human” side of the legend? I mean, sometimes we build up a legend until they seem almost more than just human. I found this quote and thought I’d share it – just to remind us that while yes, Elvis is a legend – he actually was, in reality, very human.
When one of Lisa’s baby teeth fell out here, the tooth fairy left her 50 cents. Another tooth fell out when she was with her father in Las Vegas, and that tooth fairy left her $5. When I told Elvis that 50 cents would be more in line, he laughed. He knew I was not criticizing him; how would Elvis Presley know the going rate for a tooth? – Priscilla Presley
As you know, my favorite Elvis impersonator is John Coyote. He’s done some of my favorite Elvis songs and some funny skits. I hope you enjoy these.
That made me hungry for shrimp… LOL.
That made me thirsty for… water – a glass of WATER. LOL – you thought you caught me, didn’t ‘cha?
Enjoy ELVIS WEEK… uh huh huh… uh huh huh! 🙂
