Elvis Sighting

When we got to the campground; River's Edge in Steven's Point. We saw Elvis sitting near the beach lake. A full size figure of the King. Being an Elvis fan my entire life I had to get a picture. I talked to the campground owner and he said Elvis makes his way around the campground. They like to move him around from time to time. He might be near the pool, then in the bar/restaurant always moving around.

Homestead Rescue

I'm watching the newest episode of the show Homestead Rescue on Discovery channel and they are helping out family living just outside Tupelo. Right at the beginning of the episode they mention Elvis being born in Tupelo and show his birthplace. They also tell the story of him getting his first guitar at Tupelo Hardware store and then they actually go in the store and show the spot where Elvis got his guitar in the store and some other items the store has today. The awesome part is that in the episode Marty Rainy decides to build a full scale replica of Elvis' birth house for the livestock on the Homestead of the family that they are helping out on the show. The episode is called Missippi Mayhem for anyone who wants to watch it. It's on Discovery channel or Discovery + and also on demand on some cable/satellite providers. And again the show is called Homestead Rescue.

En route to the beach
My husband and I were on our way to our local beach riding thru Dagsboro, Delaware when he said, "there's Elvis" I thought he was talking about on his country radio station. We passed by an auto shop with an Elvis statue in the window. It was so unique because the outfit and pose were that of Elvis from the 50s, but his face looked like 70s Elvis. Such a cool statue. We stopped and asked if we could get a pic and although we couldn't get inside, I was still thrilled that we got a picture.

My mom, Janet, was at dinner with a friend and she sent me this picture because she knows Elvis is my favorite. This was taken at a restaurant called Grady's that is located in Roseville, Michigan. My name is Rachelle and I'm from Warren, Michigan.

Elvis Sighting
I've been a casual Elvis listener for quite a while, but have found working from home the past ten years I like having background music on to past the time. Well, I've found myself listening to Elvis on SiriusXM most of my work day the past six months or so because I find the mood positive and uplifting.
I've enjoyed learning about his career and life so much so, that I've actually joined this group. So; in spirit of this Group, I'd like to report my first "Elvis Sighting" and it relates to my hobby of Slot Cars and I also know that Elvis enjoyed Slot Cars back in their heyday of the mid 1960s.
Please take a look at my attached photos of my latest arrival. I'm thinking Elvis would like this slot car. What do you all think? - Tom, Graceland Insider
