Re: Jim and Elvis...
Paul, thank you for the story. I always enjoy reading anything about Jim and Elvis. That was great that you were lucky enough to get a personal tour of the museum from Mary herself! You were very fortunate. However, Mary's story about Elvis loaning one of his jumpsuits to the museum to pay tribute to Jim doesn't seem likely. I believe the Jim Reeves Museum didn't even open until sometime in the '80's, and Elvis died in 1977. I don't see how Elvis could have had his jumpsuit on loan to the museum if it hadn't opened yet. I can't remember the exact year it did open, but I'm almost certain it didn't even exist in the '70's. Maybe Larry can help with this one...
