I want to reiterate that I just don’t have time to respond to individual Emails. The Email address of MessagesforJesse@aol.com is to be used STRICTLY and ONLY for messages which I can quickly access, copy into my word program, and print out to send to Jesse at the end of each month.

I just cannot read nor reply to Emails written to me at that address. I am truly sorry for this. There is only one of me and so many visitors to my web site. The same holds true for Emails sent to me at my personal Email address.

Because of my health issues, personal demands on my time, TCB’ing for Jesse, and running my web site, I must set limits on how much corresponding I can do on a one-to-one basis.

There also are times when I can’t get around to responding to all private messages on Facebook.

I ask everyone to please forgive me for these limitations.

My love to everyone always,
Linda Sigmon

Regarding the photo which Mickey Moran has shown for years claiming that the man in his photo is the same man who is in the photo of Elvis with his grandson, Benjamin, and that my photo is not really of Elvis.  Below is a newly posted item of proof that the man in Moran’s photo is actually Rev. Dale Presley who was Jerry Presley’s father. 

This new post is taken from the Facebook page of Jerry Presley and was just posted on March 28th in honor of Jerry’s birthday.

Below are photos of Rev. Presley as he aged through the years so that everyone can see for themselves that Rev. Presley is NOT the man in the photo which Jesse gave me of himself taken in 1994.  I am posting, once again Rev. Presley’s obituary to further substantiate the truth.

You may see the full photos from which some of the above photos were taken on my earlier page this past August.  Here is the link to that page.  It is informative for anyone who is interested.

What a nice way of honoring Elvis’ visit to their city!

Ottawa Can’t Help Falling In Love, declares April 3 Elvis Presley day

Elvis performed twice in Ottawa on April 3, 1957

The City of Ottawa has declared April 3 Elvis Presley day to commemorate the day 60 years ago that the king of rock ‘n’ roll shook up the capital with two sold-out concerts.

“Whereas, Elvis Presley is the undisputed king of rock ‘n’ roll” and “Ottawa has the unique distinction of being just one of three cities outside of the United States where Elvis had a live performance,” Mayor Jim Watson proclaimed on Monday, April 3 shall henceforth be known as Elvis Presley day in the capital.

The king took the stage at the Ottawa Auditorium on Argyle Street on April 3, 1957.

Wearing a signature gold jacket, he and his hips drove the crowd of screaming fans into a full-blown frenzy.

Elizabeth Wallace was one of the swooning teenagers in the audience that day.

‘All in his glittery gold’

“It was very exciting,” Wallace told Alan Neal, host of CBC Radio’s All In A Day, on Monday.

“We were all shooting a few pictures with our little Brownie cameras at the time.”

Through a newspaper contest, Wallace won a chance to meet Presley in the backstage dressing room during the intermission. The king autographed her arm, she said, and posed for photos with the contest winners.

“I actually have a picture of him with his arm around me,” Wallace said. “He was all in his glittery gold. It was exciting.”

The Ottawa Auditorium held 8,000 people and tickets to both shows sold out.

Each concert ran 40 minutes with a nine-song set list that included Hound Dog, Don’t be Cruel, Heartbreak Hotel and Love Me Tender.

Tickets cost $3.50.

I thank my good friend, Jeannette, who shared the new Gates of Graceland video with me today.  This one is not yet available on the Gates of Graceland channel on YouTube so I cannot insert a copy of the actual video at this time.  But, everyone may watch it by visiting Facebook at the link below.

However, while checking on YouTube for the brand new video from Gates of Graceland, I noticed that they did post a new one a month ago while my web site was out of operation.  So, I will share it now below.  This one is about the display of Elvis’ autos at the new museum complex.
