I’ve always been a huge Elvis fan. The above picture is at my fortieth birthday party. My friends hired an Elvis impersonator. It was great!
I come from a long line of Elvis fans. My Grandmom LOVED Elvis. She was such a huge fan. She listened to his music when she worked at the Greyhound bus station in Albany, GA. She totally identified with him.
When I was a kid, maybe five or six years old, my mom got the entire extended family tickets to see Elvis in concert in Atlanta. I remember we had two great tickets on the floor near the stage. My grand-mom would take each of the family members down there so we could each have a turn being close. I totally remember being near him on the stage and wondering why he kept giving his scarves to women. My older brother didn’t get to go. He had to stay home with my younger sister. He’s never forgiven my mom over that.
Maybe one day, we’ll create an Elvis product at Wisteria. In the meantime, you can enjoy my Elvis pez collection seen here
