LONG LIVE THE KING!
(AP Wire March 31, 2016, Branson Mo)
Elvis fans can decide to either rejoice or be very angry. Yes, what you're heard is true, folks: The death of Elvis, as it occurred in August of 1977, was an elaborately detailed hoax perpetrated by the King of Rock and Roll for the purposes of a secluded and peaceful retirement—and perhaps, not to mention, wildly inflating the price of all things Elvis. His home, the world famous Graceland, is host to over 140,000 visitors each year and the revenues generated by that institution as well as other merchandise had made Elvis one of the wealthiest departed of all time. Well, that's all over now.
__Yesterday evening, at the Wayne Newton Theater in Branson, Missouri, a portly and graying Elvis Presley decided to return. He interrupted the last few minutes of Wayne Newton's act and asked (asked, mind you!) to sing the closing song. A thoroughly stunned Newton wordlessly passed the microphone to Presley, who, after briefly conferring with musical director, Hank Stamos, performed his traditional show-closer of "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "My Way" and then, also in keeping with tradition—left the building. His parting words to the wildly appreciative audience, "Let's play it cool and keep it quiet and we'll do this again some time. Adios."

He did that last night? Huh, he must have caught quite a flight to get there. He was at Walmart at 6:00 PM last night too.

Sven Johansson was scarlet after falling into a vat of barn paint.

Elvis looks pretty good for being 81 years old, wonder what his secret is? :-)

Well it was quite the evening ...

Scarlett's husband called while we were parking the car & seemed quite upset with her - I guess those French guys are kinda jealous ...

I saw my friend Matthew McConaughey sitting in his Lincoln - I tried to get him engaged in conversation but he seemed to be pre-occupied with his car ....

Elvis was a surprise for sure but I can say the years have not been kind to the King ....

I don't think so! He would be over 80 by now and that picture looks no older than mid 60's
