Elvis died

Handwritten page of a diary dated September 2, 1977

…  since Elvis has been dead more than two weeks, youda thought my mom woulda stopped gettin tears in her eyes every single day and stopped havin to play over and over her record of Suspicious Minds. When I happen to get a chance to use the record player to hear a better song I love — which is Hotel California — she runs down the basement to look at her Elvis posters taped all over one wall.

So my dad comes in and says we got worse problems than the death of Elvis, namely money and then he turns to me and says if I wanna start drivin the car around I better get a job because in case I hadn’t noticed gas is 65 cents a gallon now.

  1. I saw Elvis hitchhiking on US131 near Kalamazoo a few years ago.

    • If you’d only given him a ride and gotten a picture of him, you’d be so rich you’d be living in a manse on Lake M. and I could stay in a tiny guest cottage on your estate.
