Think About It : How $7.90 Changed History

Let's cut to the chase:

Yesterday (Jan. 8) would have been Elvis' 79th birthday.
In 1946, for his 11th birthday, Elvis asked his mother for a 22-caliber rifle.
Instead, she purchased a guitar from Tupelo Hardware for $7.90.

Can you imagine how it may've changed history had Elvis never received that guitar?

Really, it's mind boggling.

Happy belated, Elvis.
(And many thanks, "Momma Presley.")
