Books and other stuff I feel like discussing

By education and experience - Accountant with a specialty in taxation. Formerly a CPA (license has lapsed). Masters degree in law of taxation from University of Denver. Now retired. Part time work during baseball season as receptionist & switchboard operator for the Colorado Rockies. This gig feeds my soul in ways I have trouble articulating. One daughter, and four grandchildren. I share the house with two cats; a big goof of a cat called Grinch (named as a joke for his easy going "whatever" disposition); and Lady, a shelter adoptee with a regal bearing and sweet little soprano voice. I would be very bereft if it ever becomes necessary to keep house without a cat.

My "oops!" for this week

Yesterday I was recalling an early TV appearance by Elvis Presley.

Today I did a little more checking. The show was hosted by Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, not Harry James, and was produced by Jackie Gleason, who called it STAGE SHOW.

Elvis first appeared Jan 28, 1956, and was on the show 5 more times. By February HEARTBREAK HOTEL was on the charts, and I imagine that within a few weeks of my enthusiastic report to my school friends that all the naysayers knew who he was, if nothing else.
