Blog Prompt: Today is Elvisâ??s birthday. What is your favorite Elvis song and what memories does it bring back?
Elvis would’ve been 75 years old today and I have always loved his music.Â There are so many songs I love of his, so its hard to choose just one song.Â His gospel music is some of my favorite and I guess American Trilogy is a favorite.
I was born and raised about 3 hours north of Memphis, so Elvis was just the guy down the road, but still a celebrity.Â I do remember the day I heard on the news about Elvis’ death.Â We all sat in front of the tv for hours to watch the news coming out of Memphis.
I have been to Graceland and what a great tour that was and I’m glad that I was able to experience it.Â I know there will be thousands making their yearly trip to pay their respects.Â I have also been to Tupelo and saw his tiny little home.
A layout I did of past pictures of my visits to Tupelo and Graceland.
Here is a video of his last concert before his death. I had tickets to see him 2 weeks after his death. I didn’t care what he looked like, he was Elvis and to this day, he will always be the King of Rock and Roll.
I have my DVR ready to record a few things for me to watch tonight about Elvis.Â Can’t waitÂ !
Everyone have a hunka, hunka burnin lovable day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
