To all of my friends in Blogland, here’s...

...not mud in your eye,...

...not looking at you kid,...

...not even Johnny (with apologies to Ed McMahon),...

no, here’s the young Elvis (2:38) to help you make it through the season.

Though if you need the young Elvis (or any of those other people) to help you make it through the season, you’re (a) probably worse off than anybody thought and (b) definitely living in the past.

I’m just sayin’....

A belated thank you for this as I'm just catching up on my blog reading. As it was, I made it through Christmas without Elvis and not too much looking back at the past!

Theanne (and Baron), wow, it was eons ago, wasn't it? Back then my hair was not gray and I had a waistline....

Parrots/Ian, when a person can make it through Christmas without Elvis the end of the world can't be far off.

Putz/David, now that's the old Putz I remember! What a great story! Doctors always attempt to explain away miracles...terriers have flexible necks, that's a good one! (Maybe more people will end up reading about your Christmas Day experience over here than over there....)

I may make a post out of your comment.
