FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
To get you all in the mood
for the Saturday music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents

Elvia Aaron Presley
Born January 8, 1935
In Tupelo, Mississippi,

Father ~ 18-year-old Vernon Elvis and
Mother ~ 22-year-old Gladys Love Presley.

He is the surviving identical twin to Jesse Garon Presley (stillborn).

A cultural icon, he is commonly known by the single name Elvis.
He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll"
or simply "the King".

Can't Help Falling in Love

Success

Starting in 1953, after being told for years
that he couldn't sing, Elvis got his start ~
"The session, held the evening of July 5,
proved entirely unfruitful until late in the night.
As they were about to give up and go home,
Presley took his guitar and launched into a 1946 blues number,
Arthur Crudup's "That's All Right".
Moore recalled, "All of a sudden,
Elvis just started singing this song,
jumping around and acting the fool,
and then Bill picked up his bass,
and he started acting the fool, too,
and I started playing with them.
Sam, I think, had the door to the control booth open ...
he stuck his head out and said, 'What are you doing?'
And we said, 'We don't know.'
'Well, back up,' he said, 'try to find a place to start, and do it again.'"
Phillips quickly began taping; this was the sound he had been looking for.

On January 10, 1956,
Presley made his first recordings
for RCA in Nashville.

On March 24,1958 Presley was inducted
into the U.S. Army as a private
at Fort Chaffee, near Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Presley joined the 3rd Armored Division
in Friedberg, Germany, on October 1.
Introduced to amphetamines by a sergeant
while on maneuvers, he became "practically evangelical
about their benefits"
While in Friedberg, Presley met
14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu.
They would eventually marry after a seven-and-a-half-year courtship.

His Death

August 16, 1977

Since 1977

Presley has been inducted into four music halls of fame:

and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame (2007).
In 1984, he received the W. C. Handy Award
from the Blues Foundation
and the Academy of Country Music's first Golden Hat Award.
In 1987, he received the American Music Awards' Award of Merit.

Job is OK, but the late evening hours are not something I am used to yet.

Good evening to you too. The pets don’t like the heat either. I see a cat on an electrical box almost every night on the evening shift that is just asking to be adopted.

Good evening, Connie!

*HUGS*

Great to see you this evening! It's been a while, hasn't it? My time online has been curtailed lately between the demands of work and by my medical issues. I hope this eases up soon.

How are things going with you?

Always great to see you as well Conor. I sooo understand the time constraints but I try to follow as much as I can. Glad you & the loverly Mrs. Conor are doing the aquatics. Good PT without stress.

We are well in the AZ household. How is Sir Winston? Miss Daisy recently had all but two remaining teeth removed. At sixteen yrs of age she is still like a puppy & even more so after this last dental surgery.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

The day went pretty well, thanks! I stopped off on the way home and picked up some sirloins - John-Man did an exquisite job with them on the grill. Sauteed Champignons and a Fetzer Valley Oaks Cabernet to accompany them.

It's been quite a while since we've had sirloins - we've been grilling a lot of Rib Eyes and NY Strips lately. I had forgotten how much I liked Sirloins.

John-Man brought them home with scant help and advice from me. A very impressive performance as a Grill Sergeant! I'm ready to pass my Toque and Apron on to him.

Sir Winston is doing quite well, thanks! He had a couple of small tastes of sirloin steak tonight - once he had that, we couldn't get him away from the table!
