Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, September 25, 2014: Statue of Elvis Presley, Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada

DrFumblefinger ·

Fans always commented that Elvis was at his best in Vegas -- relaxed, chatty (talking to the crowd a lot), and despite it's large size, it was a fairly intimate performance venue with lots of direct audience contact.

I feel your pain on the fall you had. Always embarrassing. I swam out from the beach on an inflatable bed. I caught a wave and returned to the beach at speed - lying face down. I hit sharp rocks on the beach and my inflatable turned to shreds. I was laying face down in 3 inches of water - struggling to turn over and get my...
