Drinking With Young Elvis in Waikiki

How Times Have Changed:

"Chad Gates [Elvis]:
You know what you need? 
A good old-fashioned spanking.

Ellie Corbett:
M-Maybe I do. Nobody ever cared enough 
about me. Even for that.

Chad Gates:
Alright, Eleanor. I better prove that somebody 
does care. [He pulls her over his lap]

Ellie Corbett:
You wouldn't dare.

Chad Gates:
Oh wouldn't I dare? Wouldn't I? [He spanks her, and Ellie begins to cry out] I got a feeling that this is gonna make both of us an awful lot better."
Blue Hawaii

I like how your photo says pause, take deep breath, and then the next photo rolls up of Elvis. Now I know you meant to pause, breathe for relaxation, but just made me smile. Sounds like a fun show.

I love to visit Hawaii. I don't get there often enough. I love to go in the warm ocean water and just float around. - Margy
