Shades of, “There’ll Be Peace In The Valley For Me” for anyone who wants to have the distinction of being buried in Elvis Presley’s former crypt which is a granite and marble mausoleum at Forest Hills Cemetary in Memphis, Tennessee.
(NOTE) You must be dead to actually be interred there.
But, if you’re still alive and wearing your “Blue Swede Shoes” you can bid on the crypt and eventually, when you buy the farm, be buried, or, “interred” there. I say “interred” because I’m pretty sure they don’t bury you in a crypt. Kinda like that old joke of, “Who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb?” Answer: Nobody because he’s not actually buried.
On June 23rd, (location not specified) an auction will be held to auction off the crypt where Elvis and his mother were once interred until they were both moved to “Graceland.” But, don’t get “All Shook Up” not knowing where the auction will be held. You can contact auctioneer Darren Julien, who I’m sure you can find on the Internet, and inquire about “Following That Dream” of being laid to rest in Elvis’ crypt “Until It’s Time For You To Go.”
If you’re lucky enough to win the auction you’ll get the crypt, opening and closing procedures, memorialization and use of the chapel. Which will allow your loved ones, upon your departure, to do some “Crying In the Chapel.”
Now don’t get, “All Shook Up” but your bid, should you win, does not include transportation, or funeral home charges. BUT…if you’re dead, screw it, let your family worry about that trivial stuff. I’m not saying, “Don’t Be Cruel,” but you could always leave them a note saying, “Love Me Tender” and if the transportation and funeral home charges are expensive, and they “Don’t” want to spend that kind of money, just leave them another note telling them, “It’s Now Or Never,” and to just “Surrender” the bucks.
After all, this is all about, “Memories.”
Now remember folks, “I Was The One” who gave you a heads up one this once in a lifetime, (literally) opportunity. I do this because when you read my daily MisfitWisdom blogs it’s because, “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You.”
So, when it’s time for you to go to the “Promised Land,” you might want to give some serious thought to the “Burning Love” that you had for Elvis and be able to say, upon your winning bid, “I Was The One.”
As for me, being a “Poor Boy” and living with a “Hard Headed Woman,” I couldn’t afford to bid on Elvis’ crypt because it would cost “Too Much.” Which kinda makes me “Moody Blue” and not able to “Follow That Dream.”
So, good luck to any of you who are able to come up with the cash to make a bid. Might wanna wear a “Good Luck Charm” to increase your chances of winning.
Until then…….if you’re able to submit your bid by “U. S. Male” make sure you send it certified and with the correct postage or you’ll get it back marked, “Return to Sender.”
Again….good luck to all of you bidding. Hope it’s one of my blog readers. If it isn’t, I’ll be saying, “I Feel So Bad.”
