Happy 30th B'day, Michael Shelak

My cousin, Michael Shelak, age 14 mos. Got this in just under the wire. He came into the world the same day Elvis left it. My aunt had a funny story about his birth...just after she had given birth, she talked to her sister on the phone. The FIRST thing she said to my aunt was not: "How are you? What did you have? Is the baby okay?" But: "Did you know Elvis died today?!" We had always hoped he could sing. Does in the shower count?

Are there 'propers' for the Dormition of Elvis... I'm sure Paul VI would have made provision. :-)

Esther: Thanks!!1 Glad to see you guys didn't get any tsunamis

Philip:
Well, if he'd known who Elvis was, there would have been!!!! If I'm not mistaken, there is a St. Fabian....and I think there were a lot of 50s-60s kids who picked him as their patron saint!
