I just enjoyed this audio/photo video of a song which was recorded at home by Elvis.  I hope my visitors will as well.

I want to share with everyone that Jesse called me late this afternoon.  He sounded wonderful and his cough is completely gone.  His voice sounded so good and strong.  He has had another painful condition since we last spoke but it has been taken care of and he did not have to spend the night in the hospital.  He has had some trouble with his phone and it worked fine tonight.  He did try to phone me last night but, when I answered the phone, his phone did something and cut us off.  He is still staying home because of the virus stay-at-home orders.  We had a very nice chat but there is no news to share this time other than the wonderful news that he is back in good health.  As always, his call was such a bright spot in my day.

My good friend Dennis F. Miller shared this below video with me quite some time ago and I love watching it.  I don’t think I have shared this here on my website before.  I hope everyone will enjoy it too.

I am certain that I have most likely shared the below before on my original website.  It was so very special to me so many years ago when I first saw it that I want to share it again.  Speaking with Wanda several days ago must have triggered my memory of the below letter even though we did not discuss it at all.

Years ago Wanda so graciously gave me permission to use anything she wrote or spoke to me so I don’t think she will mind my sharing the below again.

When I very first read the below letter which Elvis wrote to Wanda on August 3, 1977 and which he held to mail until later in that month so that she would receive it on or very near the August 16, 1977 date (Wanda received it on August 15th, 1977), I knew it was a “goodbye” letter and the PS makes it VERY clear that he would be gone that month.  Reading this letter way back so many years ago touched me so deeply and was just one more item which solidified my massive body of proof that he planned his “death” for that “perfect date” (Jesse’s words).  

I have come to feel that perhaps he intended for her to receive it the day before his “death” so that she would understand that he had planned that she would get it just before he left and would be comforted that he was not really gone.

Remember when you came to the lot at M.G.M. in the spring of 1963 and I asked you to have lunch with me? I knew then I could trust you and that you would not do anything funny in there with me. I wanted to be able to just relax and with you I could. I was supposed to have lunch with another girl on the set that day and then you came up and I told her another time but she and I weren’t just going to eat lunch, in fact I was skipping lunch but then you were so nice and sweet and cute and I decided to spend it with you instead. You didn’t even know that other girl was giving you the evil eye the rest of the day and she damn near tripped you a couple of times and you didn’t even know! I’ll bet you never even noticed when she chopped at you do you? In fact I’ll bet you don’t even remember it. That was the kind of girl you used to be, trusting and awful sweet. I liked you from the first because you weren’t like her. I hope that you don’t change as you grow older and more successful. I want to tell you that life is nothing without trust and love and good friends. It is nothing without family and loved ones. And you can not replace them once they are gone. I know. Believe me. Love them and take care of them and never regret the things required of you by them. For that is what life is about. Loving and caring.
Love, Elvis P.
P.S. If I have done anything to harm or hurt you over the past few years please forgive me for it. I know you have worried about me and spent a lot of time trying to help me, and it did. I would like you to remember me and to help others to do the same. But I don’t have the right to ask for a thing. So I’ll just hint real loudly, alright?

The most wonderful thing to take place for me is that when I told Jesse how I KNEW that letter was a clue for Wanda that he “knew” what day he would be “dying”, he loved that I noticed that.  He said he didn’t think anyone noticed that fact that the letter was a “goodbye” letter and a clue which he left.  That made me feel so good.  You see Wanda did not realize that Elvis did not really die until she became acquainted with me and my work.

When I read the following article last night, I knew that I had to post it on my website so that it would be included in my print out to send to Jesse on Friday.  I think he will really enjoy it and I hope all of my visitors will as well.
