E Is For Elvis

DISCLOSURE: Freda's Voice received no compensation for posting. Opinions are 100% owned by Freda's Voice.

I love elephants. Such a mystical creature, and amazingly it never forgets. But no, that is not what I am sharing this week.
I almost went with ego as the theme, when I saw what one egotistical person had the nerve to say. Again, no, I digressed. 
I decided to share with you my love of Elvis Presley.
Some of you who have read my blog, or visit my photography blog, may already know of my secret obsession. For those who didn't know... SURPRISE!!!
Here are a few of my E.P. possessions.
My Elvis sneakers from The Bradford Exchange.
Never worn... no way ho-say!

Elvis purse.

Elvis pajamas.

Elvis cosmetic bag.

Elvis bedside lamp.

Elvis cigarette case, though I quit smoking 5 years ago.

One of the many unopened Elvis calendars.

I actually have two of these Elvis pink lemonade mixes.
Unopened of course.

One of my many Elvis figurines.

Elvis playing cards.

Yes, I even have Elvis Pez. 

So there you see some of my most prized Elvis possessions. Of course this is only a piece of the pie, I didn't want to be here all night going through my goodies... LOL
Do you enjoy Elvis? Have a favorite song??
I will leave you with this youtube video for my Elvis pick. It's not my favorite, but it is the song I danced with my cousin Billy at his wedding. Since he rests in heaven now, I always think of him when I play it.

  2. I really enjoyed this! I adore Elvis too, always have and I just know I always will. My mother collected elephants, not the live ones of course, and yet if she could have she would have had them as well. She favored them having their tusks up! After my mother passed, her collection is now mine. I have two large stone elephants (she had in her living room) sitting in an outdoor flower garden! I think they enjoy the fresh air! :)

  8. I am reading a neat book about Elvis called "The Day the Music Changed." It consists of letters back and forth between him when he was a naive 20 and her when she was 14. I am really enjoying it and would recommend it highly.

    =)

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one.
