To have as your own, what would it be? Ok this may sound weird but for me it would be a peice of his clothes. Because I would like to wear something he did. Or his first piano that was in there. (auctioned off this past year) No car, I'd be afraid to drive it. No trophies because they weren't personal. I'd want something really personal.

Definitely a piano that Elvis jammed at and played often...secondly, the peacock windows.:)

OF COURSE the first piano that was there. I think it was the white one. You know, I'm a piano teacher and to have a piano that Elvis used to play, well, that would be a dream to me. Second choice? Well, I would really like to have an old TV set that belonged to Elvis. Third choice? Maybe some photos that used to hang on the walls or one of his golden records.

I'd choose either the following jumpsuits:


Red Matador

Black Matador

Aloha Bald-Headed Eagle

White Matador

Blue Nail (ok, I know it's not at Graceland and it's in private hands but I'd still like to have it).

The TCB ring

A pair of his sunglasses.


I think that would be it....*hee hee*

His wallet..i believe it was at Graceland, it had a picture of him and Lisa Marie, his money with the little money holder around it saying something like "E.A.Presley" and his car keys.
I would like this because it's something he would touch often and what he had on him mostly. I would smell it too :lol: It probly smelt of his fave cologne of something (Brut i believe).

I'd want Mediatation Garden....picked up and put in my back yard ....minus any bodies of course . ;)

Meditation garden is really nice.

But I'd want the jungle room and the waterfall.

No wait, the tv room with the gold bar. That's my favorite!

Then I could watch AI, the Tigers game, and whatever else is on at the same time and not miss anything, lol

I'd change the colour scheme to my favorite colour, royal blue and the gold bar to silver and black.

I don't know, probably one of his guitars. I write songs and it would be nice to write one on a guitar he actually played.

I'd want for him to do what's best by him for a change, and realise that people love him no matter what, and for him to think about what is best for him .... He would be embraced by the ones who matter, especially one incredible young lady ... She would love him no matter what, and would understand, as she is so perceptive and darn smart (understands people). Think of the joy, to the most important person in your world? You can do it, you know, if you want to, privately ....... Wow, frightening, but she would forgive and understand, her opinion is the only one that matters (and there are a lot of trusted friends who would be overjoyed, it's a given.....)


.........Just a thought, out of love and care......

I like that pic of Elvis in your avatar.

He looks so handsome.

I'd love the Graceland Gates. I could just imagine myself driving through those gates if they were at my own house.

The gates!!

john carpenter

a piece of clothing he wore....maybe his big fluffy robe? So I could wrap myself in it and it would smell of him and his cologne.....

Rock- I don't think "all" classifies as one! I saw the way you were trying to pull one over.. Hey I may be old but....
LOL

rebby
01-18-2008, 09:46 PM
oh, if i could choose one thing from Graceland, it would be Elvis himself,

obviously not quite the way he is now, (u know in coffin and stuff)

but back in like 1968 when he was happy and healthy and well!

but apart from that dream,,,


oh gosh i'd LOVE the big white fluffy round bed!!!



that would be awesome!

There you go rocknroll. For that thought, MissyM should let you have them lol.

Hard question, but I guess I'd like to have a piece of his clothes too! Like that Brown Coat he wore in 1969 :blush::D

Diane
01-18-2008, 11:26 PM
Oooo Marija, better wear a blouse under that one! :) If I was to choose an article of clothing it would be that red shirt, pinstripe pants and fabulous belt he wore at the TTWII rehearsals.

Diane

MissyM
01-18-2008, 11:33 PM
Rock, you're a sneaky little bugger, but I like your persistance!, so yes,you get the whole dag gum box of Goldies! Besides I have no time to quibble with you, Suzan and I are meeting up for a wrestling match later for the Keys to Graceland! Psst. Don't tell her, I know karate!

Being a fan of the 70's era, I'd have to say one of his jumpsuits! (y)

(Either the Peacock, Rainbow or Flame jumpsuit would do nicely!) ;)

lol Diane! :D He looked great in that one, wish he took it off, I would have loved it even more :lol::P

Ohh yes, I've always loved those pants! - and red shirt, and the belt..and..:D
There are so many things I want to have! Maybe I should just take Lisa Marie from Graceland and put everything i want in it! - Missy,I hope you count this as one :lol:

MissyM
01-19-2008, 01:29 PM
Mari, obviously you people can't be controlled. I blame this on Rock as he got the ball rolling. What am I to do with ya'll! If this keeps up I'm going to have to call Getlo in here to guard Graceland. Him and a couple of Dobermans!

Yep Missy, Rock started it (not that I am blaming him, his ideas rock:lol:)
I think we need Diane here, at least we have someone sane on here (I hope?) :P
What about we just take the whole Graceland and share it on here...Just an idea Diane, :lol::blush:

Diane
01-19-2008, 02:13 PM
Sane? I'm sane? Hallelujah...thanks Marija :lol: By the way Missy, if we had Getlo to guard the Graceland gates we wouldn't need the dobermans.:lol:

I'd love the Graceland Gates. I could just imagine myself driving through those gates if they were at my own house.

I was wondering if those gates are the original ones that Elvis had installed as Iron rusts over the years :hmm:

If I had a choice of something from Graceland it would have to be something personal, not something that is on display, I suppose that Lisa would have some personal Items of Elvis' that she has at her home? I don't want some exhibit or Jumpsuit as I don't believe that they were personal, jumpsuits to me are super cool, but I suppose they were just a part of the razzle dazzle of the stage Elvis.... I would like something that was dear to Elvis.

JUst one thing?! impossible. but if it had to be one, i'd like either his housekey with his initials or a pair of his boots.
the boots - i'd love to be able to stand in his shoes so he can give me confidence when i needed it.
the key - just to know that i had a peice of him that he loved.

01-21-2008, 05:07 PM

01-22-2008, 06:43 PM
Come to think of it....I think I`ll have the pool table.I won`t be able to take it until I build another room onto the house first though...so if any of you would be so kind as as to look after it for me for a while I`d appreciate it.
