Blue Monday - 3/16 - Blue Hawaii



Happy Blue Monday! That Smiling Sally lady has more blue friends than you can shake a stick at! Head over to her site to see Blue, Blue and more Blue!

Those of you who follow my blog (and I thank you!) know by now my mind travels in many directions. Some might say I have a short (oh look, there's Boudreaux climbing on the settee) attention span. Pretty sparkly things will make me spin. Where was I going with this?

Oh yes, so today, I'm thinking Blue...hmmm. It's raining here...I'm still on track here, don't worry. I'm wanting sunshine. I want to escape. And then it HITS me...Blue Hawaii!

I was a huge Elvis fan. My mother loved Elvis and Daddy would drop us off at the movies. What fun we had. Of course, then we watched them over and over on tv.

So, here's to sunshine, laughter, drooling a little over the 60's Elvis and BLUENESS!





I wonder if Mr. Dumpling would let me put this on the front porch?



and he could wear this shirt!



I would never leave Boo Boo out of the fun! He would love this outfit!



Did you know there is a Blue Hawaii hosta?



We actually saw Elvis twice and heard him sing this next song from Blue Hawaii. It was always one of my favorites and he closed his concerts with this.

I was a thirteen-year-old girl when Elvis appeared on Ed Sullivan. He had an amazing voice. As for that film, how about that skimpy two-piece bathing suit? Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Now I really do think you need that chair on the porch and that shirt for your DH. Love the doggie outfit also. Fun post. Hugs, Marty

Great post. Brings back some wonderful memories. Elvis was famous for his rock 'n roll stuff, but some of his love songs and mellow music were his best. "Blue Hawaii", "Aura Lee", "Love Me Tender" and his gospel music. Wow!

I only saw him in person one time...i was forbidden to leave town when i was in high school but in 1956, (i was a senior), he came to a town about 45 miles away and, believe me, I DID GO SEE HIM...I screamed til I couldn't talk for days....and I don't think my momma ever knew I sneaked out of town!

Aww Judybug loved your post and the Elvis video. As I watched the video, my thoughts "man, people were sooo little then and who is he costar. I can't do a thing about the first thought, but am off to find out who his costar was in Blue Hawaii.
Isn't the internet fantastic!
