@zinniabooklover do we have this on her thread too?

I just had a quick look and can't see it. In fact, I know I was intending to post it bc, omg, the little guitar (unless it's a ukelele, lol). But I can't see it from either of us. I only checked 3 or 4 pages but I don't think it's there. I think you should go ahead and post it. Such a brilliant photo.

@Michaels Lover Just sharing your link over here too.

Lisa Marie Presley's life will be honored with a public memorial service at Graceland. The daughter of Elvis Presley died on Thursday, Jan. 12 at the age of 54.
"Riley, Harper, Finley, and Priscilla are grateful for the support, well-wishes, and outpouring of love honoring their beloved Lisa Marie," a representative has confirmed.
"A public memorial service has been arranged on the front lawn of Graceland at 9:00 am on Sunday, January 22 in Memphis. Please visit www.graceland.com for more information. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages all who wish to send something to do so in the form of a donation to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation."

Currently reading a 1977 bio of Elvis. On Page 70 - 71 there is this:

"Fan clubs for Elvis at the same time were organised throughout the country with membership cards. The instructions to Elvis Fan Club members read: 'To be members in good standing each week you must send out five postcards to a disc jockey in your vicinity, and follow it up with ten phone calls a week to the radio stations, demanding Elvis' records.' "

I love this but it puts today's streaming parties in the shade. This involves way more hard work than just streaming something all night while you sleep, lol. Anyway, the quote continues:

"Girls formed Elvis Presley clubs of their own which met at their various homes for Elvis - record sessions. They would scream and cry at every record with over-wrought emotions."

The quotes are included in - 'Elvis: Lonely Star At The Top' by David Hanna - but originally come from a book by May Mann called The Private Elvis.
