elvis


If you come into my back hall,
you'll see that you got here too late.


Actually, this retablo was the last gift
from my friend Rose before she died.
What an exit!

What a fun reminder from and of your friend. I saw many figures/scenes like this in the Southwest. Here in the Bible Belt, not so much.

Heh heh. Ya, not so much.
Are you guys doing a total circumnavigation?

"Elvis has left the Building"! A lovely way to think of your friend's departure. (There was a "Church of
Elvis" in downtown Portland for many years. They sold things like this. I always remember that a woman "married herself" there! lol! It made the news.)

Yep. North from Florida to Philly. West to Chicago. Then home!

I'm sorry about your friend. I had to look up what a retalbo was. But, yes, that's an exit worth remembering.
