Guilty Pleasures Monday – Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley from an NBC Special - Used under Fair Use ProvisionsI 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.
