Me and Gail and Elvis....

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was....HB put up two 8' shelves in my studio! I had to take a lot of stuff out so he could work in there so today I've been putting everything back and re-organizing (AGAIN!) the studio. Pictures in a couple of days. I hope the shelves make a difference. So far, they seem to be helping but it's only been one day. Let's see what my studio is like in another couple of weeks.

It was nice to be able to work on my journal page on a clean work table! I was able to lay everything out and still had room. Yea! I'm doing a happy dance!!!

Here's my page for today....

This one really brought back some fun memories! It was cold the day my BFF Gail and I stood in line to see Love Me Tender and there was a loooong line around the block. Gail wasn't a huge Elvis fan but I was. He was the love of my life when the movie came out in 1956....I was 13 years old and I thought he was gorgeous.

Who was your "Elvis"???

  1. I was never crazy for Elvis...I mean I liked him. I remember my Dad buying me "You aint nothing but a hound dog.".....thinking around 1956.

    I actually had a crush on Roy Rogers. LOL

  11. My Dad loved Elvis, and bought me his records.My Dad took us to see Love Me Tender at the drive in. My Dad seemed to understand where Elvis came from. My Dad was so handsome, and a Oklahoma boy.
    Many memories of things when I hear some of his songs.
    Thanks for the memories...love the page. Your, Mary

  14. I remember that day well and many others sitting in your room playing Elvis records over and over

  15. I always loved Elvis! He and my mother were exactly the same age and she remembers seeing him when he was about 20 yrs, old in concert at her high school football stadium wearing an all pink sequined cowboy ensemble. She still has all her old 45's and M have the cd's. "Suspicious Minds" and "Jailhouse Rock" are two of my favoirites. MY Elvis, however was David Bowie! Would you please e-mail me your address at kathrinemccullen@yahoo.com? I lost it, and I have some postcards I want to send you.

    Love,
    Alberta/Kathy

  16. Oh Janet...me being the same age as you...Elvis was my Elvis too. My parents took me and two of my girlfriends to see Love Me Tender when it opened. No small feat, it was winter, a 12 mile drive to the next town through a snowy canyon. We had no theater in our little town. We girls squealed all the way there, and even more so on the way home. My Mom loved Elvis too, although she was reluctant to say so, you are suppposed to hate the music your kids like. I was living in Mississippi when Elvis died and Hubby and I took a pilgrimage to Graceland. I still love his music.

  17. I was never a big fan of Elvis though I did like the ballads he sang. My favourite movie of his was Flaming Star. My Aunt was the Elvis-crazy one. Instead, I was a love-crazed-teen for Donny Osmond......sigh ~
