Saturday was the baby shower for Suzanne & "the niece." Gary came up with a gift for her also which i had her open first. "a Black light?" you say.
One day she said "what am i going to do with a girl?" I told gary this and he said, teach her to be an elvis back-up singer. So the idea was sparked.
When we were in elementary school, my dad took me to the mall to buy her a birthday gift. I picked out a black light and an Elvis Presley album. Well, come sat night, she and i would put on funky pj's that would look cool in the black light, put on that album (or another of his) and sing-we were the "back-up singers" (she was usually Candy Cook) and when the concert was over, we took turns being the "girlfriend" of Elvis when we went to dinner after the show. (pretend of course) (we had great imaginations!) So here she is opening the light-and knew there was a cd of elvis music too~too bad i didn't address it to "candy." This was the first time my mom had ever heard the story~
