Simple question. Did he wear slippers at Hillcrest, or go barefoot or in socks? Or did he wear boots/shoes in the house?

**All of the above. In Palm springs he'd go barefoot quite often; seemed to stay more dressed up at Hillcrest. And yes he wore slippers - had the same pair in Palm SPrings over the years - brown suede-like ones with red plaid flannel lining!

This is not a question I have ever pondered, even for a second. But, what the hell!

I'm wondering if he ever slept in a hair net.

Excellent LMAO :lol:

Thanks Sandi.
I like to ask about the human side of Elvis. This is where we get into his head a little more and can relate to him as ..well, as Deb put it, a regular guy.

But Elvis was no ordinary guy.

Sure, he was human, but he was also extraordinary.
