Mexico City, Houston, TX, TV, and books

I experienced 5 Elvis sightings in one week beginning on January 25th.  I was on the way to the airport in Mexico City where I saw a huge billboard with Elvis in his black leather suit, I think it was advertising the 2 day big screen release of the 68 special.  It was so cool to see it in another country. Another sighting was a TV ad advertising a local Houston tenor group's concert and the ad mentioned they would be singing hits from "The King", among others. I read quick references about Elvis in two different books I read during that time.  Finally, Gordon Ramsey did a episode of 24 Hours from Hell and Back, a restaurant rehab show, in Memphis.  The intro had him talking about Memphis and how so many people came here "to see where Elvis lived", and they flashed a shot of Elvis' statue near Beale Street.  It was a banner week for Elvis sightings!

In the tutorial for Tinkercad - a 3D printing software program

My daughter, Téa, is in 8th grade and recently began a 3D printing program (called Tinkercad) in her STEM class and while viewing the tutorial where they were learning how to move around and view different things in the program, the 3D model in the program was a stage with a 3D Elvis on it. He was immediately recognizable to her because not only is Elvis Radio the only thing we listen to in the car (and love to play along with the Elvis Quiz Show and can't wait to visit and get our chance to play!) but she also shares a birthday with Elvis.

Rockefeller Center, New York City
A friend and I were sitting in the Rock Cafe, looking at the tree and watching the ice skaters. We started talking to the couple next to us, who were native New Yorkers. We talked about how you never see the sights close to you, and the woman said, “I realized I’d never taken my son to see Ellis Island.  I remember the day we went, it was Elvis’s birthday....”. No mention of Elvis before or after, but it was as if it was a date as recognizable as Christmas or New Years.

Elvis in Riverdale
October 17, 2018 During Season 3, Episode 2 - Chapter 37: Fortune and Men’s Eyes During a scene from Riverdale, based on the Archie comic book series; there is a scene where main character, Archie Andrews is serving time in a youth correctional facility, and has orchestrated a football game between his fellow inmates in order to bring everyone together and stand up to the warden. As a result, Archie’s girlfriend, Veronica Lodge shows up with her cheerleading squad to root for Archie and share their support. They set down a boom box radio, and then proceed to launch into a rendition of Jailhouse Rock, and the boys go wild! It was definitely cool to see the King’s influence in a show based on a favorite comic from my childhood, especially since Elvis enjoyed comics as well. Makes me wonder if Elvis ever read Archie comics.
