kentucky rain...

33 years ago today on a rainy kentucky afternoon, i sat in my grandmommie's living room watching television when abc anchorman, harry reasoner, broke into regular programming to report that elvis presley had died of an apparent heart attack at his home in memphis, tennessee.

i still remember the smell that lingered from the recent down-pour as i ran across the street to see if the neighbors had heard the news...

where were you when the news
of the passing of
"the king of rock 'n' roll"

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Golly, Dani, I can't remember. I'll work on it though; it'll drive me nutsier than I am. I do remember where I was when John Kennedy was shot in l963; in the car and heard it on the radio.

I honestly can't remember. Kentucky Rain has always been one of my top five Elvis songs though. Suspicious Minds being number one.
Sorry to be so absent lately. I just haven't been able to find time to even look at the computer lately, let alone USE it.
I have missed you though. I'm going to try to be more involved in the blogverse, of course I also constantly resolve to drop some weight and that doesn't work out either.
tee hee
love Susan!
