Cast Away movie

My wife and I were searching for a movie to watch. She asked if I have seen Cast Away, with Tom Hanks. I had not seen the movie, so we watched it. In the opening scene Tom Hanks is in his Jeep and on the radio is Elvis. There are other times in the movie with Elvis songs. Although the movie was released in 2000, it was new to me!

Elvis forever!

Thanks

Elvis sightings in Cancun, Mexico
I've been an Elvis fan since the age of 6 when my Grandma gave me my first Elvis Album for Christmas. I was lucky enough to see him when I was 10 in May 1976. I've been to Graceland 3 times and to Tupelo once. In December my husband and I traveled to Cancun for the first time where I not only had one Elvis sighting, but I had two! The first was at the bar at our hotel (I have a photo, but could only attach one). The second was at Guy Fieri's restaurant at the Cancun airport (see second photo attached) where when I stood up to tell the rest of the party goodbye, I realized this photo of Elvis had been behind me the entire time. It's from his film, Flaming Star. I was so excited to see it!

The Four Italian Tenors-Dr. Phillips Center, Orlando, Fl
On November 26, 2019, the Four Italian Tenors were performing at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Orlando, Fl. All night long the tenors sang many famous arias and popular Italian tunes (including "Volare" and "Ave Maria.") Everything was in Italian, as the tenors spoke no English. Their Masetro was the only one who soke any English at all. Then the tenors began singing " 'O Sole Mio." The first verse was, naturally, in Italian. All of a sudden they began the second verse with the words, "It's  now or never, come hold me tight," in English. What a wonderful tribute to Elivs and his version of " "O Sole Mio" which we all know became, "It's Now or Never." Elvis would have been tickled pink to know that such affulent muscians would include his work in their concert. The audience, of course, was also ticked pink! Elvis truely is THE KING!

In the book "A New Song" by Jan Karon, pub. 1999
This is a Christian book about a parish priest and his adventures. On pages 10-12, the local barber tells him the story about when he left the small town and went to Graceland, seeking Elvis. There, the man went to all the places Elvis used to hang out in Memphis, hoping (like so many others) that Elvis was still alive, even though this was 20 years after his death. Under the influence of alcohol, he finally saw Elvis, mowing his grass at Graceland with a push mower, in the middle of the night. He was dressed in a white suit, and there was a glow all around Elvis.. Elvis waved briefly at the man. This "sighting" caused the man to quit drinking forever, return home, and resume barbering. But the barber also made the priest promise never to share the story.

In an awful murder novel, "Bad Moon Rising"
Unfortunately, the big gangster boss in this novel is a rabid Elvis fan. If any underling says anything negative about The King, he is punished. The boss also owns a collection of Elvis memorabilia that includes autographed posters and albums. There are literally a dozen scenes when Elvis is mentioned, but it's such a negative book, I wouldn't recommend it.

Rockville, Maryland
Well, I guess this is technically an Elvis "hearing" not a "sighting," but it's a great story nonetheless.  My 5-year-old grandson, Mason, has been properly schooled to become an Elvis fan, and he loves dancing to "Jailhouse Rock," which is my phone ringtone.  For Christmas one year, we bought him an Elvis doll that plays that song.  Today, our daughter and son-in-law and Mason are packing up for a move to Hawaii, and it turns out that stuffed into a box is the Elvis doll and it keeps playing that tune randomly.  At one point, our son-in-law wondered if my phone had been left behind there, from our weekend visit.  So, it's clear that no matter where you go or where you pack your Elvis items, the King announces his presence!

Netflix - Carmen Sandiego
The Netflix series Carmen Sandiego released its second season on Oct. 1, 2019. A scene in episode 3 "The Daisho Caper" shows a confrontation between opposing sides in a karoake bar. Just before the conflict begins one of the henchmen starts singing karoake of Suspiscious Minds, which continues to play through out the ensuing fight scene. Interestingly enough the song actually added significantly to the mood of the scene. So surprised to see this in a kids animated show. Elvis knows no bounds when it comes to the generations.

At the Fifth-Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids, MI
 Two Elvises were spotted at the Fifth-third Ball Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the annual “Step-Up For Down Syndrome”  walk on Sat. Sept. 21.  The theme was “Rock-N  An Extra Chromosome," so of course Elvis had to be a part of this Rock-N event!   Prior to the walk, the ballpark was full of fun and entertainment including rock-n-roll music provided by some of its members. One member, 16 year old Liam Doyle, an aspiring ETA,  performed  50s, 60s and  70s Elvis sets, complete with costume changes.  Liam was thrilled when a Michigan ETA, Matt King, joined him for  “American Trilogy”.   Then Matt led the nearly 2,000 participants in the walk dressed in an awesome Elvis "Mad Tiger" jumpsuit!   (Liam attended both the 2018 and 2019 awesome Graceland Performing Arts Camps and Elvis will forever be a BIG part of his life!)

August 25 issue of the Lake City (FL) Reporter
An entire newspaper column about seeing Elvis (unexpectedly) at a Hank Snow concert in Jacksonville, FL, in 1955. Written by Morris Williams. He went on to say that they went to the record shops afterwards and nobody had heard of Elvis Presley, even though he'd been a hit at the concert. Elvis returned to Jacksonville in 1956, as the headliner and was world famous.

Heard a reference on NPR
Listening to Terry Gross “Fresh Air” on NPR, Terry says, “I’m going to let Elvis introduce today’s guest.”  There followed a clip of Elvis introducing James Burton during one of his Las Vegas shows.  And the, of course, an interview with James Burton.  Very sweet to hear Elvis’s voice!

CJ’s Coffee Shop in Rockville Centre NY
A few days before I left for Elvis week I took my grandson Christopher to CJ’s Coffee Shop in Rockville Centre. There are Elvis photos on the walls throughout the Coffee Shop, Chris took pictures of the ones over our table. The one that I found interesting was the Sun Studio sign. The owner told me when he visited Graceland years ago with his son, he toured Sun Studio and offered to buy one of their signs. They said no but took him in the back to a room with old signs where he picked one out and it now hangs in his Coffee Shop along with all the Elvis photos!

Waterfront Depot Restaurant in the coastal town of Florence, Oregon

The Waterfront Depot restaurant is actually the small charming historic Southern Pacific Railroad Depot now placed on the waterfront in downtown Florence. Quaint setting, water view of the Siuslaw River joinng the Pacific, delicious food and a place we love to take the hour drive to eat. This was an anniversary dinner.

As you walk in and up the two stairs to the hostess table/desk, directly above is a large photo portrait of  young Elvis, probably early 20's. I asked the waitress "What's the story behind the Elvis picture?" She replied "The owner did all the decorations!", I followed up asking, "Why Elvis? She responded with a sweet grin..."Because she LOVES him!".....What song lyric played over and over in my mind that evening...."The lady loves me!" (From his duet with Ann Margaret)

It's a must visit for all Elvis fans traveling the central coast of Oregon!!!

2 game shows

I was watching an episode of Jeopardy at lunch.  One category was "1958" and I told my husband that one answer would be Elvis. Sure enough, the first clue was a picture of Elvis in his army uniform and the clue was "he was inducted, not into the rock 'n roll hall of fame, but into the army".

Later that day, we were watching the new Best Ever Trivia Show and there was the question "what is one of hte features in the Jungle Room of Elvis Presley's Graceland?".  Sadly, only 1 of the 3 contestants knew is was an indoor waterfall.

In the book Charmed by the Cowboy by Debra Clopton

I should not have been surprised (after all, Cooper Presley was one of the main characters, one of 5 Presley brothers) but just over halfway through Debra Clopton's Charmed by the Cowboy book a huge smile came to my face when our man Elvis was mentioned. Cooper took over tilling the garden spot for Beth when her tiller became unruly. As the tiller was giving him fits, Beth said from behind him, "Put some weight behind it. And from back here, you're giving Elvis a run for his money on shaking your lower half. There is definitely a whole lot of shaking going on."

He chuckled and replied to her, "I'll have to do my Elvis impersonaltion after I turn this thing off. But right now I've got a challenge to win and a beast to tame."

"Fine with me. I'm rooting you on. Go, Elvis, go."

Auburn University, Auburn AL, Basketball Arena

Elvis played Auburn University May 5, 1974 in the Beard -Eave's Memorial Coliseum. Colonol Parker said "Auburn was as important to Elvis as New York City." There is even a YouTube clip of Elvis saying "War Eagle." As an Alabama fan, this creates a great conflict of interest for me. Thought it was cool that Ali was in this picture since Graceland now has an exhibit for him too.

Victoria by the Sea in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Island Chocolate
Victoria by the Sea in Prince Edward Island.  Island chocolate(best chocolate ever) had a candy tin collection and I spotted a tin with Elvis on it. I ask where she got it and she said it was a gift and would not sell it.  I told her we lived in Baldwyn just up the road from where Elvis was born in Tupelo and my father in law possible showed him his first chord on a guitar while playing on Sunday afternoons at WELO by his house (bluegrass jam sessions and is not in history books-Credit Johnny Campbell of Saltillo). They played jam sessions at WELO for live evtertainment on Sunday afternoons on 1946-1947. I deliver travel trailers across the US and Canada and always ask them if they know where Elvis was born.  They always say Nashville or Memphis and I have never met anyone that has never heard of him.
