Recently my friend and me were in Tupelo and stopped by to visit Elvis's childhood home. He was born January 8, 1935, to Gladys and Vernon Presley in this two-room house.
His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn leaving Elvis Aaron to go up an only child. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948. Elvis graduated in Memphis from Humes High School in 1953. In 1954, he started his singing career with the legendary Sun Records. And as they say the rest is history...
Just to think it all started in this small two room house in northeast Mississippi!
Many have written about Elvis...his childhood, his family, his acting career, his music career, his life and death.
No one can deny the mark Elvis made on the world!
Another destination is the Tupelo Gigantic Flea Market and Craft Show. A very interesting place to spend a few hours every 2nd weekend of the month!
Have you visited any "celebrity" places lately?
Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!
