Elvis Sighting

I went to the Elvis Presley statue dedication at the Neal Blaisdell Center in Honolulu on July 26th, 2007. The statue is to commemorate the Elvis concert that was held at the arena in 1973. It was the first concert to be broadcast via satellite, reaching more than a billion viewers.

I met a lady named Fumie and she gave me a photo of her with Elvis. The photo was taken on the 14th floor of the Hilton Hawaiian Village in November, 1957 at 11:30pm. See the photo below that she gave to me and then there is a photo of me and her at the statue dedication. In the photo with Elvis, she is on the far right of the photo. Check out this link to see a story that was in the Star Bulletin on Fumie.

August 16th

It was 30 years ago today that Elvis Presley died. Now one of the songs he made famous is being ruined by being used in a Viagra commercial. Viva Las Vegas was made famous by Elvis and is now being used as Viva Viagra!

On another note, today is also the anniversary of my grandfather Joe Wilson’s passing. He passed away 15 years ago. We miss you grandpa!
