The Day Elvis Died

It’s a day to reminisce. Elvis Presley died 35 years ago today and we remember that day with total clarity. We had just exited the Hollywood freeway after a day of thrift shopping with a friend, when Elvis‘s sudden death was announced on the radio. We almost drove off the road in shock. We were SO upset and tearful we couldn’t drive, and had to pull into Tiny Naylor’s Drive-in on the corner of La Brea and Sunset to compose ourselves and have a cold drink. People at the drive-in were in shock and disbelief also. Waitresses wept. Little did we know Tiny Naylor’s would be gone in a few years too.
