Lisa Marie Presley at Elvis Week 2018

FRIDAY AUGUST 10th – ELVIS WEEK DAY 1 I woke up around 3:45am (on purpose) after about 4 or 5 hours of sleep. I left Cookeville just before 4:30am and headed toward Memphis in the dark and the rain.

I Got Ya, Elvis, I Got Ya! by Betty Page

I really enjoyed I Got Ya, Elvis, I Got Ya! especially I didn’t know who Betty Page was (no she’s not the 1940s pinup girl) or her connection to Elvis, but it was a signed first edition (1978) so I just had to have it.

Elvis This One’s For You by Arlene Cogan

This was the best Elvis fan book I’ve ever read, and I REALLY loved the Donna Lewis Diaries. Written in 1985, Elvis This One’s For You by Arlene Cogan is so great because Arlene was not only a fan but also a friend of Elvis – basically she is what you call a fan/friend. Furthermore, [continue reading]

Kentucky Rain – Elvis from A to Z

I chose “Kentucky Rain” for my Elvis ‘K’ topic for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. It was a close one between it and the movie Kid Galahad as it’s one of my top 10 favorite Elvis movies, but I think I like “Kentucky Rain” just a little bit more. If you [continue reading]
