Remembering Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley passed away 42 years ago, on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.

I remember where I was when I heard the news that he died.

I have always been an Elvis fan, every since I can remember. I remember running from the bus stop when they would show Elvis movies on TV in the afternoon.

I was always listening to his music and singing his songs.

I’ve been to Graceland a couple of times and have enjoyed being with other Elvia fans.

Hard to believe God been gone for 42 years. There will be no one else like him ever.

I will always be an Elvis Presley fan and will always listen to his music.

Here is my all-time favorite Elvis song.

“If I Can Dream”

Long Live The King.

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Here are some random pictures I have taken lately.

Happy Birthday Joe

Today would have been my little brother, Joe, 51st birthday.

He will be celebrating in heaven with my mom. It’s has almost been five years since Joe died. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of Joe. The good, bad and the ugly. We were supposed to grow old together.

I can picture him in heaven, celebrating his birthday with a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. Eating a box of cereal. Downloading all the movies and TV shows he can. Eating something our mom made just for him. Listening to “Free Bird.” And drinking a Lemon-lime slush with extra fruit from Sonic.

So, Happy Birthday, Joe. I miss you and I love you, as much as one can love a pain-in-the ass little brother.

I’ll have a Lemon-lime slush with extra fruit from Sonic for you today.

Tell mom I love her and miss her too! ❤

New Friendships

For past six months I have been participating in a walking challenge. It is a challenge on the Samsung Health app.

The goal is to have over 200,000 steps a month. It’s been fun doing the challenges. But an unexpected surprise is the new friends that I have meet on there.

We all have the same goals and when we challenge each other, we encourage each other to do our best.

I have chatted with these new friends on the app and some I have even chatted on our cell phones.

It amazes me how you can meet someone online and create a friendship. i feel so blessed that our paths crossed.

So this is a shout out to Tom. Thanks for being a friend. I’m looking forward to our challenges and conversations.

Selfie

I decided that I will post random selfies here to remind me of what I looked like and where I was when I took the selfie.

This self was taken at Mission San José in San Antonio, Texas. I have been going to the church service there for the past couple of weeks. I have enjoyed going there and walking the grounds afterwards.

I Smell Cake*

Well they say that the stars go in three’s and here is a case of that being true. In the past couple of weeks three icons from my youth have past away.

All of them were stars in their time and provided their own brand of entertainment. Thank goodness that they will live on forever with their performances.

R.I.P and thank you for entertaining us.

Side Note:

*My brother, Joe and I would always say this to each other after someone famous died.
“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

“My Cake” is the sixth episode of Scrubs’ fourth season. J.D.’s father dies and he and his brother Dan have to cope with it.

Hamilton

Well, I finally got to see the musical Hamilton the other night at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, Texas.

What an amazing show. I had no idea what it was about or any of the music. And I didn’t read anything about it before going to the theater. I wanted to experience for the first time there.

It was such a great show and I am so glad that i had the chance to see it.

Here are my pictures I took of a great night.
