Merry Christmas 2017

To each and every Elvis Presley fan, casual viewer of this blog, Jack Soden, Lisa Marie, Linda Thompson, Alanna Nash, Sandie Kaye Stevens, Martine Prizzo (pardon if I misspelled the name but she is a good friend and knowledgeable about Elvis Presley and other great rock and roll artists as well as being one of my Facebook friends) Sandi Pichon, Billy Smith, Larry Geller, Russ Howe, Paul Lichter, etc I want to wish you and yours a blessed and Merry Christmas 2017.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. I believe this and I respect others who may have a different emotion, opinion, etc. But on this day, the 25th of December 2017, families come together  and express their friendship and love for another and that is a beautiful thing indeed.

This life we have, and man I know the trials and tribulations that I have gone through from the first breath I took and (sadly) that my children have endured and are enduring, provides us with bountiful opportunities>

To those who are in prison/jail (excluding those of pure evil and have harmed others), and to their families and loved ones, I pray for you as your lives are deserving of respect and second chances. May you know that others are praying for you and wishing you success, good health, and happiness.

This time of year has always been the hardest for me (i.e. from mid September until January the 7th) as the worst things I have ever endured have happened on these dates. But, some of my children and their mother were born during this time period so even through the darkness their light comes through.

 

Take care and may God bless you always.

PS: Here are 7 cool Elvis photos. Enjoy and let others know about our sites/blogs via social media.

The first photo is of Elvis with Priscilla circa 1968.

The second is of Colonel Parker visiting Elvis while Elvis was in the US Army. The photo is circa 1959.

The third is Elvis’ beloved mother Gladys in the backyard circa 1957. Very rare.

The fourth is Elvis signing autographs. Notice his ring and bracelet. The man had style.

The fifth is a drawing I made in high school. It became a part of my portfolio, and acceptance, when I attended college at the Art Institute. My drawing is from a publicity photo of Elvis circa 1956.

The sixth is circa 1969 of Elvis with Priscilla and Tom Jones with Tom Jones wife.

The seventh is a personal note, with signature, of Elvis’ handwriting. The man was (wholly) unique as was his signature and his handwriting.
