THE KING IS DEAD

LONG LIVE THE KING
 
January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977(1935-01-08)


Elvis was hugely popular around the world, but of the hundreds of concerts he performed; only three were held outside of the United States. Those three concerts were held in Canada.
Elvis recorded over 600 songs, and while he collaborated on several of them, he never solely wrote any of them.

He won three Grammy Awards for his music, but none of them were for his rock music. All three awards were for his gospel music. Two of them were for renditions of “How Great Thou Art”.

Elvis had big feet. He wore a size 11 shoe.

Even though Elvis was worth millions, he had less expensive taste in cologne. His favorite? Brut.

Elvis knew all the lines to the George C. Scott movie, Patton.

Elvis is worth more dead than he was alive. When he died in 1977, Elvis had in the neighborhood of $5 million in the bank. In 2004, 27 years after his death, Forbes Magazine listed him as the richest deceased person, worth about $45 million.

Woo HOOOO...in Mayemphis this week the Elvis impersonators are thick on the sidewalks of Beale Street, and in and around Graceland. Muzzer's most favorites are the ones who are about Elvis' real age (if he hadn't died) and who are corpulent and haggard, but still in there movin' to the music.

Glad to see you. We only have sixty seven bazillion more boxes to unpack. but we are voting.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
