Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Elvis would have been 74 today. One of the most magnetic, charismatic, mystifying and amazing people on this planet.

Just watch the video my husband got me for a gift one year. My sister and I sat and watched, shaking our heads. Either you 'get it' or you don't.

Elvis was an amazing energy and is fantastic to watch from his hey day. (is that how you spell that?) The way he sings, performs and gives passionate kisses to those in the audience has me melting EVERY time.

I wish he had a more healthy life and didn't die so bloated and sick at the end. But to see him in the Las Vegas compilation is a MUST see for any fan.

I'm getting off topic-- Happy Birthday to Elvis! The world misses you!!
