Below is a link to a website which has on display photos covering Elvis’ life for a total of 41 photos. I thought that my visitors would perhaps enjoy looking thru all of these photos. We NEVER tire of looking at Elvis!
Elvis Presley’s Life in Photos
From the time Elvis Presley entered the music industry in 1955, he was different from anyone else. Teenagers flocked to his charismatic performances and soon The King toppled the Billboard charts. He made a lasting impression on not only the music industry, but pop culture as a whole. Here, we’re taking a look back at the singer’s groundbreaking 20-year music career, as well as his tumultuous personal life.
I want to share that Jesse called me tonight and he is still doing pretty well all things considered. He is having some back pain which is causing him some trouble. He is still having the physical rehab therapy which involves using various exercise equipment…perhaps that is contributing to his back pain. Let’s keep Jesse in our prayers.
Jesse and I are both very interested that, as per a bill passed last year, the Pentagon must release documents by the end of June detailing the facts relating to UFO sightings. This material is to be released to Congress. Jesse and I hope that the information will be released to the public. We CAN handle the truth.
It has recently been reported on several news reports that UFOs have been seen by military personnel off the coast of Virginia in our protected airspace almost daily for the past two years. This is only one example of such events.
I am so thankful that Jesse and I did get to talk. Hearing his voice and knowing that he is alright is such a blessing.

Below are photos of a Christmas gift that Jesse gave to my husband, Tom, quite a few years ago. I remembered that I had not shared a photo of this gift on my website and thought perhaps my visitors would enjoy seeing these boots which were a gift to Elvis from Burgess Meredith during the filming of “Stay Away Joe“…as you may see on the attached copy of Jesse’s note.

Below are photos of another gift that Jesse gave to Tom quite a few years ago which I do not recall having posted on this site. This is a beautiful Smith & Wesson jacket.

The below certainly is not current news, however, my good friend SK sent the below photo to me and I love it so much that I want to share it. Hugs to SK who wrote to me about this Limited Edition Elvis Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Reese’s Cups that came out in 2007. I missed them entirely when they were available…wish they would put some more out now.
