Today we are celebrating Elvis Presley by watching his movies and cooking barbecue All Day! Turner Classic Movies has Elvis movies on most of the day and I can fill in the blanks with the ones I own. We do this on January 8th every year for his birthday but I decided this year we would honor the day of his death as well. He died on August 16th in 1977. I am wondering what today is like in Memphis, Tennessee?
I adore his movies and his music, it is impossible to be anything but happy when watching Elvis sail along in a convertible full of pretty ladies singing his heart out. He is always ridiculously charming, the music is... of course, always great, the sets are beautiful and often in Hawaii and there is always a happy ending! Whats not to like. I realize many people think his movies are cheesy but that is exactly what I love about them. They are... what they are, Fun!
