Elvis is often referred to as "the King of Rock and Roll." Since his officially documented death, August 16, 1977, Elvis has been spotted in many places. I took these photos of a HUGE Elvis in Crystal River, Florida in the late 1980's.

Perfect for any occasion or just because it's spring!

If you want to purchase this entire set on the Disney Classics website, be prepared to pay a little over $1,000.00 dollars.
I believe this looks like it might be a dragon? Or maybe it is an Alligator with legs and arms?? What ever it is, I like it.

Cline A. Siegenthaler has been exhibiting his Science Fiction and Fantasy artwork since 1989. His portfolio is an ever-changing zoo of bizarre aliens, whimsical gargoyles and over-engineered, mechanical beasts.
The first mention of the Saint-Michel church in Dijon was in the year 889. At that time it was probably originally a simple wooden chapel. When it became too small in 1020 it was replaced by the bishop of Langres, Lambert Bassigny.
Once again in 1497 it had become too small to accommodate all the faithful so they decided to build a new church. The new church was consecrated on July 29 1529. However, it was not until 1667 after the completion of the main facade that the church took on its final form.
Saint-Gobain S.A. is a French multinational corporation, founded in 1665 in Paris. Originally it was a mirror manufacturer but now it also produces a variety of construction and high-performance materials.

This is an old Postal Card from Kansas that is postmarked on June 23, 1883.
It features the Liberty 1 cent stamp.
The note on the back says:
"Sir, I hold a receipt against that note. Please state what remains due. yours, Slaten, Yates Center, Kansas, Woodson County"
I was sent this message about this card...
This "postal card" was used in 1883, but postal cards of this issue were first sold in late September of 1875. The Scott catalog number for this item is UX5 (assuming it is unwatermarked, else it is UX4 and worth hundreds of dollars!)
A postal card is one sold by the post office with the postage amount pre-printed. The double circle date stamp is all that was required for it to be entered into the mail. "Cancelling" the Liberty / One Cent is not necessary for postal cards like it is for stamped mail, but this was often done anyway as in the present example. - - - I have one more postal card that is postmarked in 1883...

We had a very nice time, water nice with big waves. Renee was very very good except for awaking at 7 AM everyday. She loved the sand and wading with assistance. It was too rough to get her out as I did.
This is postmarked in 1974.
