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!!

Knowing you guys, your party for the 4th is going to be a real bash--have a great time!

Nice news about renting the house--all that hard work paying off. You deserve a lot of credit.
