I received this birthday card of Elvis from my friend of the MOST years - Kathy. We have been friends since the third grade in Shreveport, La! Yup, over a half century.......good heavens! The card is actually a cut-out of Elvis and it brought back soooooooo many memories. You see we grew up in Shreveport, home of the Louisiana Hayride where Elvis was discovered and where my sister-in-law worked before she married my brother. She dated Elvis! After my sister-in-law died last year, I looked at photos of her when she and Bob married and she was exquisitely beautiful. Surprisingly, there were some similarities in her looks to Priscilla's looks when she was a teenager. The cool thing of this whole story is that whenever Elvis was anywhere near the two towns that my brother and sister-in-law lived, tickets were sent to them to attend his concerts.
Strolling down memory lane...........Kathy and I had our first double-date together and her Dad drove us to the dance. I remember my date's name - I wonder if Kathy remembers hers.............. Kathy and I see each other every couple of years and when we get together and start chattering, it is like NO time has passed. We have been through the births of kids, grandkids, the deaths of our spouses and my daughter and all the time that friendship has held! It's a treasure.
Too bad Elvis isn't still around to sing.............LOVE ME TENDER.
