    Did anyone realize that today(January 8) was Elvis Presley's birthday? He would of been 76 yrs. I didn't see any movies on tv like they usually have.

    I remembered it since I live just outside of Memphis. So of course it is a really big deal here.

    I remembered. I have a friend in NZ who has every kind of momento you can imagine. I found a Christmas Stocking with his picture on it at a quilt show. She now has absolutely everything imaginable, lol. And, my best friend in Wilmington NC shares this birthday, too, but she ain't anywhere near 76 and she would choke me if I said so. lol Thanks for mentioning it.

    Blessings,
    Ruth

    trivia game, 2 clocks, 5 statues still in box, a graceland statue that has a light on it. Who knows what else that I haven't mentioned. When I'm gone, someone is gonna have a nice Elvis collection.

    Mary - Happy Birthday.

    I always remember because it was my mom birthday too.

    Did you know that Elvis was a twin? His brother died at birth.

    First of all, Happy Birthday to everyone who shared Elvis's birthday.
    I was always fascinated to know that he had a twin who died at birth. One baby not even to live and one to become such an American icon.
    I remember lots of articles saying how close he was to his parents and that always touched my heart. I guess sometimes we forget that people have more values than just the money they make!!
