    Yes..it was Tommy Vaughn! Your memory is great, except you have run our age back a year!
    We met as pen pals thru an Elvis fan club. I lived in Dallas and Gail lived in Houston. We became really close....one weekend she flew to Dallas and spent the weekend with me. We were 2 teenagers having a blast staying up all night talking Elvis. We remained close until we both married and drifted apart. You guys have NO idea how many times I have thought of Gail, and wondered where in the world she was! Elvis has worked his magic one more time...and here we have found each other after 30 years. I would like to think he's smiling down at this moment!

    Was it Sean Shaver's fan club we met through? I know we wrote hundreds, if not thousands of letters. And, the long distance phone calls - remember getting in trouble for talking on the phone too long and too often?? We couldn't help it - we had to talk about the latest album, the lastest tour, the next time we were gonna see him!!! OMG - those were the days!!! I still have a picture of you somewhere - I'm gonna have to go on a search through boxes and find it!!
    Yes, Elvis has definitely worked his magic again - never in my wildest dreams did I ever think of finding you here today - or any other day for that matter!!

    I think its so neat how internet can help ole' friends, family and etc find each other again. Couple years ago I went into video, voice chat program in a Altanta Room, and would you believe my ole friend from 1st grade up til I moved from Altanta was in that room.

    I'm so happy for you utmom and gail!

    Love to all,

    Thanks Tim...I appreciate that and I know Gail will too. And, you are right, the internet can help to make the world a smaller place.

    This has been the most nicest thead I have ever read here. I'm pleased old friends are reunited thanks to Elvis!

    You guys have no idea how happy this made me last night!! I've thought about her so many times. In fact, about a month ago I found this girl on MySpace and I thought she was her daughter and was so let down when it wasn't! We were so young and so very much in love with Elvis - the other kids at school didn't understand - but we both spoke the same language!! She was my first and bestest Elvis friend I ever had!!! I love that girl! Cheers to Toffe for posting these pictures that brought me in this thread!!

    The shows are different because the orchestra is gone.Elvis always had such a "big" sound in his concerts.At these shows you just get him and his band.That made it unique.
