Elvis!


Today would have been Elvis's 75th birthday! This picture looks like the one that used to hang on the back of my door when I was a kid. I loved Elvis movies when I was a kid. I would run around dancing and singing his songs! I think I need to rent some of his movies and have an Elvis weekend!


I have to tell the funny story about the time he wrote my grandmother. When he first started to get popular my grandmother wrote him about his nasty dancing (her words) and apparently he wrote back telling her his mother was fine with his dancing and so she shouldn't be worried about it. lol


This story has been passed around our family, now I can't prove it is true because I have never seen the letter and my grandmother passed away in 1975. But my mom said she has but where the letter is my mom has no ideal.

What a great story, I love that! I remember there were a lot of parents upset about that "nasty dancing." I can't even imagine Elvis being 75, can you?

I hate that I was not able to do a post for him on his birthday. I did watch some of his movies though
Love this post
