Just think, Monique, you could 'resurrect' all the old posts you never saw before.

Might take a while...................................

The doc linked to this old post in a more recent post. So I felt free to read and enjoy it...and even let him know I did. Sorry if it bothers you.

Hey Monique,

i don't think this was meant as an unfriendly thing.

On this board ::rocks it is sometimes hard for ppl whose native tongue is not English to distinguish certain remarks.
I know i had to deal with that a couple of times; my native language is Dutch and sometimes a direct translation from English to Dutch is not that friendly for the reader. So just try to sit back and relax and try to look at the message the poster is trying to convey.... there are lot of archived posts on this MB, covering a lot of subjects.... and to try to read them all.... might indeed take a while.
You did good by reading and posting. You have nothing to apologize for.

PEP, could you (or anyone else who owns a copy) post a picture.
It would be great to see what Elvis wrote in those yearbooks.

This is my copy of the yearbook.

Thanks for sharing. Can anyone tell me what Elvis wrote? To me it looks like "Best luck to a sweet guy Elvis"

Is that correct?

The swell guy who owned this yearbook was James M. Yarbrough
It contains almost all signatures incl. George Klein and Ed Leek.

I also don't believe that Elvis is shown on two classroom pictures, I think he is only on one.
I also think that Red West is pictured a few times in the book.
Can anyone confirm?

Thanks, Mitch!

The remembrances pertaining to our hero are quite insightful, from Elvis' early acting ambitions to the coaching he received prior to heading to New York for the second Ed Sullivan appearance.
