    Remembering...

    Hi JJ,

    I've already ordered some flowers to be delivered to Graceland on the 16th...this Sunday Morning I am co-presenting a 1 hour Elvis show on local Hospital Radio Network that I have written/produced...throughout the weekend I plan to watch "Jailhouse Rock", "The Great Performances Vols 1 & 2", "Girls!Girls!Girls!" and "Elvis 56: In The Beginning"...On the 16th I've got plans to watch "The Ultimate Collection Vol. 2 espisode 6", "Change Of Habit", "68 Comeback 8pm sit-down show", "Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite (14th Jan)" and "Elvis By The Presleys".

    How about you JJ?

    faithful and true..!

    I listen to Elvis the whole year through, but yes, the 16th of August is special. I think I will be paying some extra attention to recordings of '76 and '77.

    I will be celebrating his life by celebrating my birthday!!!! I dont like turning a year older but really I watch his movies all day, listen to his music all day and my Auntie and I have a birthday party and talk about Elvis. She tells me she found out about his death during my birthday party. So really my birthday has always been about Elvis. I love that!!!

    Some peanut butter and fried banana sandwiches and an Elvis movie marathon is going to be what my day will consist of. It'll actually be my first August 16 as an Elvis fan, so I better get my routine down.
    Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do 'em all together, I guess.

    At night, I'm going to turn off all the lights, leaving just a white canddle and soft Elvis gospel music to create a smooth and warm atmosphere. I will watch my favorite Elvis book (also using a very, very small lamp to help me reading). And, as usual, I'll write a little note for Elvis... It's going to be a sweet-peacefully night.

    Also...

    2. I'll watch the Vigil Cast via internet!
    3. I will wear my Elvis t-shirt too, at college.

    Viva Elvis!

    August 16th always is a special day for me.

    I will be working though, but Elvis is never far from my mind, know what I mean?

    In the evening I will probably watch one of my favorite Elvis movies: G.I. Blues (the very first one I ever saw) or Fun In Acapulco (just love that dancin' on Bossa Nova Baby).

    Being an Elvis fan it's a day to remember him, no matter how much you listen to his music or watch his movies or performances.

    This will be very down day for me. Last year was great, being at the Vigial Cast, amongst Elvis fans. I have to come to work, I have tried to talk my boss into letting me have the day off, but she won't budge......very inconsiderate of her I think..... Her 10 year old son is also an Elvis fan, and I told her that he could have the day off school and come over to my house for the day, but she wouldn't have that either...hard woman.....

    Remembering

    Although Elvis is played daily tomorrow will be slightly different.In the morning I play early Elvis and late afternoon the 70's Elvis. I have posted my message on the virtual wall and plan to watch the live vigilcast on AOL.

    Also I have written a poem remembering Elvis...

    Born in a shack in 35
    a child was born the twin that survived
    They called him Elvis why such a name?
    maybe a thought this child would have power and fame,
    not a power of greed or ungratefulness,
    but the power of change music and dress.
    Why am I different I just need to know
    so open my mouth and just let it flow.
    For I can do this just give it a go.
    This was the begining of something so true
    one man and his music of RHYTHM and BLUES
    A look that was different bold and would shock
    giving birth to the music of which is called rock.
    Rock had a roll and so it would be
    It started right then with
    Elvis Presley.
    The loss of his mother was so hard to bare
    a young man in grief and a world that share
    OH lord give him the strengh to carry on
    for his life is not over but as only just begun.
    Time would then pass exceptence was mine
    Hit records and films all soldiered in line.
    Now he is a father of a sweet baby girl
    So precious a gift more precious than pearls
    But life with her mother was just not to be
    a separation was here he just did not see.
    Life was for living and so it would be
    What was held for the future could not be forseen.
    For on August 16th in the year 77
    God called for Elvis and took him to heaven.
    You have done what I asked and now is the time
    to come up to heaven and be a star that will shine
    above all those people whose lives you have changed.
    Elvis Presley the star that will always remain.

    "I Believe" that In the "Mansion Over The Hill Top" "Where No one Stands Alone"
    Elvis was "In The Garden" singing "Lead Me Guide Me" for I have his "Hand In Mine"
    So Put "Put Your Hand In The Hand" and "Reach Out To Jesus"
    for"This Is A Thing Called Love" and just "How Great Thou Art"

    Written by Susan Parry on August 14th 2005


    love and peace,
    Susan.
    Yesterday was the past and tomorrow is the future but today is the present ..thats why we call it the gift"

    Crying (Over You)

    A strange thing occurred to me yesterday, I was remembering Elvis and some other people who are dear to me (my grandmother, especially, who is very ill) and I cried. I had this tremendous sense of injustice in the way that goodhearted people seem to suffer most; applies to both Elvis and my grandmother. I know some folks seem to think that 'a man ain't supposed to cry' but I did anyway!!

    Today, I will probably hold a ceremony with my friend, who is a priest in eastern catholic-orthodoxy and we will lit our large candle (we call it: the easter candle). We will read some psalms from the Holy Bible and we will keep Elvis in our prayers. I'm very grateful for the fact that my friend takes Elvis seriously and he's also very honest about my feelings for Elvis..
