Happy Birthday Elvis Presley !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well if you didn't know it....YES I am a HUGE Elvis fan! I grew up on Elvis and have made several visits to Graceland. Elvis Presley, in my opinion, was and still is one of the greatest icons in music history. There is no doubt he brought forth what we call Rock & Roll hence the nickname "King of Rock-n-Roll".He would have been 74 today.Not only was he a singer and entertainer but a man with many awards to many to mention. He was a very giving person as well with charities and strangers benifiting from his success.Below are some pics to celebrate his birthday and one of his famous quotes.He recited this in a speech while accepting an award in 1971:

"I learned very early in life that, `without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend -- without a song.' So I keep singing a song...."

So here's to you Elvis Presley! May your memories and music live forever!

My parents had some of the McCormick Elvis decanters that had the whiskey in it and Elvis is standing on a music box. A few years ago they decided to move and downsize so I have three of them now!
