"When I get married, it will be no secret." Elvis Presley (1935 - 1977)
Elvis also recorded a song called 'It is no Secret (What God can do)'...It must have been hard to be Elvis and have secrets.

I expect this will be up for sale when The Pen Mover Etsy shop opens.

    3. Do you mean Maria Celeste as "a woman of exquisite mind, singular goodness, and most tenderly attached to me"?

    4. No, I misspelt it...The ship Called the Mary Celeste or Marie Céleste.. It was found in perfect order floating on a calm day with no one on board.

    6. The important point is; the Mary Celeste may have been abandoned, but it did not sink. I will continue to leave comments, even if I am the lone sailor on the sea and everyone has swam to the Facebook shore.

    7. If the Blogger ship sinks...I'll salute and go down with it.

  3. That's a nice Elvis. Like the cardboard treatment, too.
    You knew that Elvis was the King of rock and roll, but did you know that Jack Kirby is considered the King of comics? (at least here in the states)
