Jesse called us earlier this evening and we had a very good phone visit. He is still not feeling very well and will be seeing his Dr. tomorrow. He feels that it is just due to his age. He is very disappointed because he has not received my package as usual this week. We did a search for the tracking number and learned that it has been delayed in transit due to postal errors. Jesse told me to tell them that he is mad at them…I added that I am mad at them too. He and I agreed that they are really in trouble if he and I both are mad at them. We’ve both got #9 tempers (that’s a numerology thing) ha, ha. I am very concerned because he does not feel well. His call was still the highlight of my day as always.
“Blue Christmas” is one of the all-time holiday classics each year during Christmas time. The heartbreaking song about unrequited love perfectly captures how lonely the season can be without the one you love, which is probably why it’s been a staple for over 70 years. Though the beloved tune is now most frequently associated with Elvis Presley, it was originally recorded by Doye O’Dell in 1948.
According to Classic Country Music Stories, songwriter Jay W. Johnson first wrote the song on his commuter train from his home in Connecticut to New York City. He had been working writing jingles for the radio and was inspired by some of the other hit Christmas songs at the time like “White Christmas” which blew up thanks to Bing Crosby. He took his lyrics to his composer friend Billy Hayes and together they put the finishing touches on the song. But initially, no one was interested in recording the song when it was offered to various artists around Nashville.
Country artist Ernest Tubb recorded the song after O’Dell and his version ended up hitting number one on the Billboard chart in January 1950. Throughout the ’50s, Tubb helped popularize the song and generated interest among other country artists to cover the song. But when the King came around in 1957, he would put his own spin on “Blue Christmas” that would forever associate him with the holiday tune. What’s interesting is he reportedly didn’t even want to record it at the time.
According to backup singer Millie Kirkham, when they first entered the studio to record the song, Elvis said “Let’s just get this over with.” Kirkham added at an interview at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that everyone in the recording, including backup singers The Jordanaires and guitarist Scotty Moore, felt the same way and didn’t believe the studio would actually release the song. But the rock and roll version of the country Christmas song became a major hit on Elvis’s first Christmas EP, Elvis Sings Christmas Songs, along with other classics — “Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me),” “Santa Claus Is Back in Town,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” It has since been covered by some of the greatest musical acts across all genres from The Beach Boys to Martina McBride.
“Blue Christmas” Lyrics
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas
But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas

This video was shared with me by a lady who felt it is wonderful that Elvis is still “working to help others“… as shown by his inspiration and example to this young boy.

Tom came across the below photo of the Statue of Liberty recently and brought it to my attention. Back many years ago, I was very active in my interest of the fact that the Statue of Liberty has the face of Elvis. Way back in 1992 when I was first in touch with Jesse, I wrote a lot to him about my findings and my beliefs related to many aspects of his life…the Statue of Liberty was one of those topics. I posted several times on my website about this topic also. I just did a search for Elvis and the Statue of Liberty and I see that now there are many, many results regarding the fact that Elvis/Jesse looks just like the Statue of Liberty. At least one of the results was actually from my own website.
Back in the days when I was doing my work with the Bible Codes, I found instances tying them together as well.
Call me crazy (Lord knows, many have and do) but I have to believe that there is a reason for this fact about Elvis and the Statue of Liberty. As Elvis used to say “There are no coincidences. Everything has a meaning.“
One of the items which I found which I believe to be significant is the following scripture:
Isaiah Chapter 11: Verse 10
“And it must occur in that day that there will be the root of Jesse that will be standing up as a signal for the peoples. To him even the nations will turn inquiringly, and his resting place must become glorious”
New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
I don’t know to whom this photo should be credited…for that I apologize. I am assuming that this photo is from the New York-New York Casino in Las Vegas.
This is the photo which Tom came across that took me down memory lane about the correlation between the Statue of Liberty and Elvis.
Isn’t that stunning?!!! Just look at those eyes and those lips!
Below is an example of one of my Bible Code slides which included Liberty, Elvis, USA, symbol, Presley, etc. This copy is from one of my earlier Current News Pages on my original main website in May, 2013.
The following is another Bible Code. This one includes Elvis, Liberty and many other relevant words. Just some more food for thought…
This first image is the color-shape word code or “key” for the slide.
There are some very significant grouping of words within this large slide. At the top of the slide, just look at the words lined up together: symbol, Presley, & USA.
Then scrolling down there is a very clear grouping of the words Elvis, songster, and Presley.
Then below that is a grouping of LIBERTY, Elvis and Presley.
At the top of the bottom half of the slide, please take note of the VERY strong grouping of the words musician, LIBERTY, biblical, and Elvis.
At the bottom of this same slide, please note the appearance of the words prophet, biblical, Elvis, Liberty and songster.
..Below is the bottom half of this slide…it is too large for one image.
With the noble face of Liberty, his glorious voice set the masses free.

One last photo of the Statue of Liberty…
While I am on a roll with my Bible Code slides, I have one more very important one which I want to emphasize. This one shows the names Elvis and Jesse in the book of Song of Songs. How amazing is that?!
To sum up my above Bible Code information, I will share the copies of the front and the back of the CD program which I used. As you can see this CD was compatible with Windows 95/98 so it will no longer work in my Windows 10. Otherwise, I would be looking up names in the headlines today.
Thank you for taking the time to peruse and consider my information.
This afternoon I had a very interesting and exciting call from a very good and true friend of mine of so many years, Mr. Tim G. Tim has been very supportive and helpful to me and Jesse over the years and I appreciate him so very much.
During our conversation today, Tim told me about something he learned and confirmed just this afternoon. Tim is a very accomplished musician who often worked at the Grand Ole Opry. He was working there back in the mid 1980’s at the same time that Hank Snow was appearing there.
Tim had heard the following story during a weekend when he was performing there. Just this afternoon, he was in contact with the man about whom Tim had heard back then. This man confirmed today what Tim had heard back in the 1980’s.
On a Friday night, at the Grand Ole Opry in the mid 1980’s, Hank Snow gave a package to a man and asked him to deliver the package to Col. Tom Parker at this home/office. When the man arrived at Col. Parker’s home/office, a lady answered the door. The man told the lady that he had a package to deliver to Col. Parker and she said that she would have to go ask if it was OK for her to accept the package. While she was gone, she left the door open just a crack and the man saw Elvis sitting on a sofa watching TV. The man said that he later asked “Tom” about what he had seen, but Col. Parker did not confirm it was Elvis. Of course, he would never have done that.
Back at the Grand Ole Opry that same weekend, Tim heard the story from others about what this man had seen at Col. Parker’s. So, on that Sunday, Tim went out to eat at the Quincy’s restaurant near Col. Parker’s and he saw a long Cadillac pull up to Col. Parker’s home. He saw Col. Parker and several other men get out. And then, he saw another man with white hair and beard get out and the other men gathered around this man and they all hurried inside. Tim has always believed that the man he saw was actually Elvis. Tim’s belief was pretty much confirmed today when he exchanged messages directly with the man who delivered the package and who saw Elvis in Col. Parker’s home/office.
This man told Tim that since it was the same weekend on which he had seen Elvis at Col. Parker’s on Friday night, that it probably was Elvis who Tim saw on Sunday. Tim and this man had heard stories about Elvis spending time there with Col. Parker.
My heartfelt thanks to Tim for calling to share this wonderful information with me. I thank Tim for giving me permission to share this here on my website.

Graceland has made an announcement of their plans for the birthday celebration…as follows:
Below is a good comparison of Elvis to the Statue of Liberty. One of my favorite facts about Elvis and the Statue of Liberty is that the time frame during which Elvis was in the Army was when the match was perfect…America’s most famous soldier.

‘Elvis: The Graphic Novel’ Biography Arriving in 2021
Elvis: The Graphic Novel continues Z2’s acclaimed line of music biographies and collaborative releases; previous artists featured have run the gamut from Beethoven to Gorillaz, with artists such as the Black Keys, Grateful Dead and Charlie Parker also in the mix.
In a statement, Z2 publisher Josh Frankel said about the project, “Elvis is one of the most universally celebrated names in entertainment. His name transcends music itself as one of the larger than life figures in the history of entertainment. Our hope is to make this graphic novel an origin story for Elvis fans akin to what Alan Moore’s ‘Whatever Happened To the Man of Tomorrow’ is for the Son of Krypton.”
The title will be released in multiple formats: a standard edition available in both paperback and hardcover, as well as a limited “Blue Suede” edition, featuring an exclusive slipcase, a vinyl picture disc, and Elvis-inspired art prints by Chris Hunt and Erik Rodriguez. A super deluxe edition, limited to 300, will feature an additional art print available only with this release. (Rodriguez’s artwork can be seen below.)
Elvis: The Graphic Novel will be released in Aug. 11, 2021.
