  1. These are some of my favorites…past and present! Kristen just cracks me up! I share a birthday with Elvis (day not year) so he’s always held a special place in my heart. Yes, I watched his famous Ed Sullivan show appearance. You must be my sister from another mother LOL!

      • Wow, I just read it! Very cool-I’m not jealous a bit, she says nonchalantly! LOL! I had a friend years ago (70s). We met when our husbands (my ex) were stationed in Ga and then we all got stationed in Hawaii. She and I were both born on Jan 8th so we shared out Elvis love. We were in Hawaii.when he died and the first call I got was from her. Needless to say we were heartbroken. One of my big regrets was that he & I were never in the same place @ the same time so I never got to see him in person.

        Glad you enjoyed it. It was purely a quirk of fate that I lived in a “crossroads” area, so the celebrity sightings were pretty frequent. Now living in HI isn’t bad either though I know what the housing there is like.

    Vincent is one of my all time favorites, and Kristen Chenowith is excellent. So this Set is definitely made of win.
