Happy 71st...

Contrary to what it may appear... I'm not some freaked out Elvis fan who just returned from an annual pilgrimage to 'Graceland'... Quite the contrary actually, I just happened to have this pic on file that I took of a mural on the side of a building in Falls Church, Virginia.

When I ran across it I thought to myself, "Hey didn't Elvis die in August?" After a brief online search I found the quote below and the date of his death... This week! How could I pass up the opportunity?

On a side note and at the risk of being sacreligious... My husband and I have a theory, well his really but I quite agree... That one day, perhaps in a few hundred years or so... Elvis will become a new religion... Those who worship at the church of Elvis will be known as 'Presletarians' and their prayers will all end with "Thank ya, Thank ya vera much!"... And man, are their services gonna ROCK!... I can hear the choir now singin' 'That's All Right Mama'

when you think about how archaelogists look at artifacts and try to understand past societies...

it makes you wonder what they will think of our society:

"They worshiped a King. His name was Elvis. We have uncovered his palace, Graceland..."

Lime,
As long as she's not eating fried p'nut butter and banana sandwiches I guess it's a healthy obsession.

Though I DO imagine they'll be surving them up at the church picnics.
