we have this bucket list that we are trying to empty out
while we can 
eg we went to the grand canyon this year and later this
summer we will be going to nicaragua
elvis wasnt on my bucket list but we went to graceland anyway

my motherinlaw was with us on our reunion trip
my wet suitcase sisterinlaw was able get us tickets that 
allowed for a private tour of graceland 
as my mominlaw wanted to go 
so we did 
have to keep peace in the family you know

am glad i did
i use to think man that family is making money off everyone 
going to see graceland and buying elvis stuff until i saw 
everyone there
now i understand
after seeing everything and listening to the stories
its history 
a legend that helped start the rock n roll movement and 
who influenced a lot of musicians yes even the beatles

did you know of all the gold records that he sold that 
he only won 3 emmies and only for gospel music
he once since his daughter had never seen snow jumped on his
private large jet 
flew to colorado got off and let her play in the snow for awhile
then turned around and flew back to memphis

his graceland where he lived was 13 acres
about the size of our country n 
of course i couldnt sing like he could or gyrate like he could

i bet during the 50s those baptist preachers had sermons about
am sure my father probably was one of them 
bet his daughter liked elvis though

elvis got his influence for some of his music from gospel singing
and especially was influenced by the black gospel singers

now days we are influenced by the black rappers
i would go with the black gospel singers myself

watched some film of elvis gyrating
can see why those girls were all screaming and grabbing at him 
he was the one that started the dirty dancing i bet
and a lot of what we see on music dvds and video today
thanx elvis 

he did take care of his family 
especially his mother
something we all should be doing

theres a picture of elviss mom at graceland
that looks a lot like my moms picture that ive posted
on this blog in the past
did make me stop a minute and think of her

the people visiting there the day we were there all seemed 
respectful and i felt awe
and really felt sadness for this
loss of such a talent at a young age
he did a lot before the age of 40
just think if we had him another 40 years

its been almost 35 years since he died
the king lives on
