I was watching TV (yes, I do that a lot) and a commercial came on which had Elvis at the start with a tag line “He Changed Music.”
Well, yes, Elvis changed music and made many a heart go aflutter, but not just with his hips. He was such a handsome man and filled with passion for what he did.
I remember growing up watching Elvis movies on the afternoon movie shows and it didn’t matter how many times I’d seen them, I’d watch them again.
My mom loved Elvis. She really took it hard when he died so suddenly in 1977 especially since he was so young – only 42.
What memories do you have of Elvis? Have you ever been to Graceland? I know that if I go to the RWA National Conference in Tennessee this year, I’m going to see about making the trip there to visit.
Arrived yesterday and was busy running around gathering everything to set up the booth and during down time, working on the next book in the SINS book – STRONGER THAN SIN. Got a lot done and then everyone started arriving at the hotel. By 7 pm we were down in our booth area, starting to set up for today when the exhibits open at 1.
Here’s step 1 of our booth – # 707 in case you’re down in Atlanta!
We have a beautiful poster for our booth – Surrender to the Night is our theme.
Meet my booth buddies: Joy Nash, me, Susan Sizemore and Raz Steele!
The view from our hotel room!
Last night was a blast, but tiring. We didn’t get to the restaurant for dinner until nearly 9:30 because we were setting up the booth and getting organized. The restaurant was close to the bar and what a sight! Dozens of people in costumes. Storm troopers, Star Trek officers, a zombie Elvis serenading people. Lots and lots of men in kilts and let me tell you – whoa, very sexy.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the camera then (will learn to always keep it with me!), so I hope to have more pictures for you either later today or tomorrow.
You can see all of the photos here as well: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2032752&id=1130005412&l=ec573e286a
