Funny, lt.
My mom would have left my dad (if only for the weekend) for Elvis.
She actually could be listed as One of His Women, as she, all my life told the tail that she saw ....and GOT TO TOUCH!!!OMG!!! Elvis, in 1955, June or July, in Raleigh, N.C., live concert, when she was 4 or 5 months pregnant with me. She went with some girlfriends. So I guess she
did leave my father for the weekend. :-))

I never saw the big deal.
