Missed Another Birthday from Flickr

The Elvis Fan Club didn’t forget, but apparently I’ve missed another birthday. It was January 8th.

I’ll never forget the day I found out Elvis died. A neighborhood boy came up to me and said,

“The King is dead.”

I replied in all seriousness,

“We’re America. We don’t have a king.”

No amount of explaining could save that conversation, mostly because we were only eight years old.
