Celebrity deaths

August 16, 1977
I think the first celebrity that I remember dying was Elvis Presley. I was 10 yrs old and my parents and I were visiting my brother and his family down in Livonia, MI. I was sleeping on the hide a bed in the family room and someone got up in the morning and was in the kitchen with the radio on when it was announced that Elvis had died.

Today I first heard about Michael Jackson's death on Facebook.

How times have changed. Anyway that makes three in a row, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. RIP you all...

In other news, a good friend of ours is going to rent our other house starting August 1. I'm extremely happy, I just hope we are done painting and fixing the place up in time.

We are now getting ready for 4th of July party mode. I can't believe that its little over a week away. Yikes!!

Been spending most of my time cleaning the new house and trying to get it ready to rent. Been repairing shit as well. Discovered that the house sags a bit in the middle due to someone taking out a basement supporting wall when they put the furnace in. fun fun Luckily I bought the insurance that includes preexisting conditions since there was no utilities on. Hopefully it will pay for some of the repairs, if not, guess its up to us. No worries though, its not our first time at the fair. lol
