At Long Last I Get Photographed Next To Elvis Presley
We went to the Hall for Cornwall (a theatre) last Friday to see a musical Dreamboats and Petticoats. This features music from the late 50s and the 60s, As it's a bit of a passion of mine my son and daughter-in-law had booked the tickets for me as a present.
Karin and I enjoyed the show and afterwards got talking about such music and inevitably I mentioned Elvis Presley. I rambled on a bit, as I sometimes do, and said how, when Elvis was alive, on my list of the things I wanted to do, was to be photographed with him. Not terribly likely at the time as I live in England and his only visit to the UK was a quick stopover at Prestwick Airport in Scotland during his army days.
The ambition was therefore never ticked off on my list.
On the Saturday, after the theatre, I was writing a post for this blog and wanted to find a suitable picture. I searched Google Images for 'classic coincidences' - as I scrolled down the page I found me and Elvis next to each other! I took a page grab, as at the top of this post.
So I was sort of photographed next to him. I guess, in the circumstances, it was the best the universe could do for me!
