Emily and I were in Ames, Iowa watching …

Emily and I were in Ames, Iowa watching Elvis in a movie called “Flaming Star” and she spoke up about how she had forgotten what a good looking man he was. I loved Elvis as a kid…had a certain attitude that put me right. We left Ames the next day (her birthday in ’86) and drove to Des Moines…checked in to the hotel and walked down the street until we found a video store. We rented 4 more Elvis movies and stayed up all night on our own Presley marathon…a great night with lots of laughs.

  1. I just have to say, I love Ames, IA. That’s where I met my hubby of almost 26 years. Not a huge Elvis fan, he’s ok, but I’ll never love him like my Alabama friends do.
