  3. I had no idea it was Elvis's birthday. Much more cultural than Downton Abbey!

  8. You are not going to believe this....
    I have an Elvis Presley cookbook...at the cottage....a hardcover...that I use to support my crossword puzzles, while sitting on the deck!!
    It has all his favorite recipes in it!
    What a hoot!
    Cheers!

  14. He was more my brother's era than mine, but one cannot deny he was brilliant and changed the music scene forever.
    (Had no idea Pepperidge Farm made a partially cooked boule. Will look into that....thanks so much for the tip, Louise!)
    Happy New Year to you and Marion!

    1. I had older cousins that adored Elvis, Barbara. I'm more familiar with his later songs but I've pretty much heard most of them at least once!!!

      I hope you find that bread, Barbara. Marion loves it! Thanks for the new year wishes. It's going to be a GREAT one!!!

  16. Hi Louise,
    Rock n Roll Cuisines sounds interesting! Who would have thought, recipes and rock and roll!!
    And the video is WONDERFUL!! I thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening to all that songs. Those were the songs that I've listened to, during my growing up years. Ever since I can remember, my dad would put on those records almost daily, as soon as he's back from work! I do have CD's for most of the songs, if not all, which I have not listened to in ages! Thanks for the reminder, it makes me want to listen to them all over again! I'll be thinking of you when I play my CDs tomorrow! It's almost 1am now!
    Elvis is special, indeed the King of Rock and Roll.
    Thanks for this lovely post!

  23. How fun! The outdoor movie theater we go to in the summer still plays his "Can't Help Falling in Love" and I always stop to listen when it comes on. Now I have to go through my old 45s and see if I have any left by Elvis...

Through this wide opened gate,
none came too early,
none returned too late.

Thanks for dropping in...Louise
