 Mistress of Memories

The KING and I

elvis.jpg

I met Elvis Presley before he became a big rock and roll star.  He worked at the trucking company where my Uncle Bud drove.  One day Bud  needed a relief driver so Elvis was it.  Uncle Bud invited me to go along, because he thought I would enjoy seeing the states.  The route would take the three of us from Indiana to California over a two week span.

I was 19 at the time.  I really enjoyed the two weeks with them both.  Elvis told me then that he would be a rock and roll star someday, and that he would send me his first 45rpm cuts, and he kept his word.  I still have them.

When he had the Houston Show, my two kids got to go to it, and my daughter had a backstage pass.  He signed my Blue Hawaii album.  My daughter Janetta, asked him if he remembered me and the trucking trip.  He said that he did, and gave her some 8 x 10 pictures and the book all about  him and his shows.  I have all his movies and music.  He is worth much more now than then.

The following are newspaper clippings and photos of Elvis that I collected over the years.  Click on them to enlarge.

This is Elvis' private plane.  He named it after Lisa Marie, his only child with Priscilla.

This is the logo for the Heartbreak Hotel restaurant, on Graceland.

This is the motif of the restaurant... 50s style... lots of velvet and bright colors.
