Monday's Shake And All That Rocking - #Music

I've heard Elvis throughout my childhood, but only have my faves like footloose and so forth, but today I'll share another fave that he has covered.

It's a testy and exhausting week for me, so the best thing is to start each day with prayer and music.

So glad I beat out the rain and got my lawn mowed. Hard work and exercise should make me happy and hurting from sweet ache, but like I said, tis a testy week indeed.

Have a blessed week y'all! Our theme: Rock n Roll legends

  1. Elvis came on the radio somewhere not long ago (I don't remember where, I remember it was out, maybe the grocery store?). I told my son, 'hey that's Elvis!' He said, 'Who's Elvis?' hahaha

  9. I love Elvis! I'm so glad you were able to beat the rain. We had rain here for about ten days in a row, and it just really cleared up last Friday. I love the rain and storms, but everything in moderation - NOT all at once, day after day.

    1. I agree about the rain. Just spread it out. We don't like the flooding part at all!

      But yes I love rain.

      Thanks Kim :)

  10. No hop of rock and roll icons could be complete without Elvis, who wouldn't have been the same if he didn't allow Uncle Bernard to dress him. My father-in-law taught him how to tie a tie. Are you impressed now?

  13. My mom was a huge fan of Elvis. I was told that she had his pictures up on his walls. He died before I was born, but because of my mom's love for him, I grew up listening to his music.
