Here's to Elvis

Today I raise my glass to the forever King of Rock & Roll. 29 years ago today I had gotten home from school, my mother was watching "Another World" (an old soap opera that is now defunct), and a scroll started on the bottom of the screen stating that Elvis had died in Memphis. I will never forget that day...for some reason, it was one of those defining moments in my life. I hope he truly got the peace he longed for much of his life.

I remember that day too, but not much about the "Soap Opera!" It has been about that long since I've seen one! It's hard to believe NOW, how SO many people don't really know so much about the "KING!" (Just little bits)! Your young Nephew, (Another Good Boy), just called me from TUPELO, night before last and is now learning things he didn't know about "Elvis!"
