My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Elvis

Blog Prompt: Aug 16 is the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. Do you know who Elvis is? If so, what was your favorite movie? Are you a big fan of his? Why or why not?

I grew up watching Elvis movies because my oldest sister loved Elvis! My favorite movie was Blue Hawaii and I could watch it over and over. I love the songs and the sweet romance and the fact that it takes place in Hawaii (where I've never been before). I'm not a big fan of his other than I like to watch his movies. I remember near the end of his life that I had thought he was just a big fat drug addict. It was such a waste that he abused his body so much when he seemed to have so much so I don't think I would still be a fan if he was alive today.

It is sad how he abused his body so much as he got older, because he sure was hot when he was younger.

I probably would have felt the same way if I'd have seen him like that. Just like some of our stars today, its sad when they do that to themselves!

What is really sad is that these celebrities should be upholding the values of life, being heroes to each new generation. Instead, they are leading our children to believe that no one cares. And it is a shame that Elvis in his latter years fell into this slump.

Elvis was a little before my time but I loved watching the movies just the same. He was never one of my idols but I do enjoy listening to his music AND I can do a GREAT lip impression of the King. lol! lol! lol! lol! TO bad they don't make movies like his anymore.
