Today marks the 40th anniversary of Elvis's passing back in 1977, the same day I was born.. When I got old enough to grow sideburns, I would rock my chops in memory of him.. To this day I still do, lol. As I got older and finished high school, I listened to some of his music and watched all his movies. I was so interested, I started to read about him.. I wanted to learn more of his character, personality, his background and why he was referred to as the 'King of Rock and Roll' or simply 'the King'.. Besides the fact he was obviously a good lookin'guy, Johnny Cash describes him best.. 'No one else could have become the star Elvis was.. Ain't nobody like Elvis, never was'
Definitely one of my favorite person's to have ever lived.. Rest In Heaven Elvis Aaron Presley
January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977

I love seeing people get along.. I love believing that maybe somewhere, in some place, two people could look each other in the eyes without hatred eating away at their hearts and say.. 'You're my friend'
The reward of peace is beautiful, and the reward of true friendship is even greater.. Have a Blessed Sabbath!

#Flash🔙Friday to August of 2016.. We were at this car wash in Torrance, California and as we're waiting there while our car was being cleaned.. This guy was on his way out in his truck but he looks over and see's Sümo laying by my feet so he pulls up and park, gets out and walks over and immediately just drops to one knee and offers him hugs! It surprised me at first, he obviously wasn't scared of Sümo but he went on to tell me that he grew up with dogs, his whole entire life and how much he loves'em and not just any dogs but 'Pitbulls'.. I could see he was emotionally trying to hold his tears back, but come to find out.. He just buried his 'American Bully' after 12 years with him. His first and only one he's had. He said.. 'I looked over and seen him and I knew he was a bully, he looked just like Hercules.. Gaw dammit, he was the best dog I ever had!' A perfect example of truly, how a dog is a mans best friend... #Sümo #SümoMan #AmericanBully #BullyLove #Bully #BullyLifestyle #BullyBreed #SilentBreed #MansBestFriend #DogLover #PeopleAndDogs #SümoShowingLoveAndComfortToARandomGuy #IThinkHeSensedThatThisGuysDogJustDied 💔

An 18-year old Bruce Lee and his Master, Ip Man circa 1958.. 'Not only was he a legendary martial artist, great teacher and innovative in the film industry, he was a well respected philosopher'..
Everything he did was not so much for himself, but more to help others achieve their perfect inner balance for a better quality of life. May his legacy continue to be an inspiration to so many around the world.. Rest In Peace Bruce Lee ~ November 27, 1940 - July 20, 1973

#Flash🔙Friday to some of the PetSmart stores Sümo has had grooming appointments at, in some places more than once..
Every chance I get, If I can.. I always take him with me when I travel.. from San Francisco to LA, from Portland, Oregon to Washington, then Las Vegas back home to Salt Lake City.. Sümo truly is my 'Roll-Dog!' To those of you that didn't want to accept or allow us in to your home, even for a simple visit because of our dog.. To be honest, Sümo is cleaner and more well-behaved than your kids!! Hahaa.. Just keepin'it real, you know who you are! Have a safe and great weekend.. ❤️🐶❤️

#Throw🔙Thursday to 28 years ago, in '89 when I remember bumping this cassette in our huge juke box that only had a record player and an 8 track, which lucky thing I had an adapter for to play cassettes, lol..
