FLASHBACK: TODAY IN HISTORY, JFK

It was the 22 of November 1963 and I was sitting in our Air Force base theatre in Dreux, France watching the John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart movie, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”.

FLASHBACK: 1990 ELVIS CALENDER

  I adore calendars. In 1990 while planning my upcoming annual art exhibit during Elvis Week, I decided to create a 1991 calendar. I had been producing the yearly limited edition Elvis Week T-shirt and thought a calendar would be something interesting to add to the show. It started with August 1990 and went through July of 1991. There were
