Aug. 16, 1977
Where were you on August 16, 1977?
I was working at the gift shop at the
Hermitage, Home of President Andrew
My mom called to tell me about
Elvis. There was a shop full of folks since
it was raining really hard outside and they
had gathered there till it let up.
Everyone was in shock, surprised
I loved Elvis. He had an amazing
voice. And oh those eyes!
Saw him in concert once.
Touched his hand while he was
leaning over the crowd.
I loved his movies too.
Loved watching them.
Sort of miss seeing those
movies these days.

What was your favorite Elvis song?
Was going to copy and paste a list
of songs but this would be a really
love post that way.
The King of Rock and Roll has been gone
for 40 yrs.
Wow....I just realized that I have
aged since that day of Elvis' death.
I was 17 on that day...time
Thanks for stopping in,
