ON THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY October 9

The Presley family was in need for money and Vernon got himself a loan for $200. He had to pay it back within 20 weeks by instalments of $10 each.
Returning to Cleveland Elvis appeared at the Circle Theater Cleveland at 7.30 and 10.00 p.m. with Roy Acuff and Kitty Wells, local stars at the Grand Ole Opry.
The day before Elvis was booked for assault and battery at a gas station, but all charges were dropped against Elvis, while the other two men were fined for their involvement in the fight the other day.
June Juanico arrived from Biloxi for a visit.
Elvis' unit went on manoeuvres called Big Lift at the military training area in Wildflecken near the Swiss border.
Elvis spent the weekend in Palm Springs.
Elvis picked up 12 TCB-pendants in Beverly Hills from Schwartz and Ableser, Fine diamonds and Jewelry.
These pendants were made from a design sketched by Elvis and Priscilla. The 14 karat gold charm consisted of the letters TCB over a zigzag lightning bolt. Over the years many explanations were given but its meaning is:
Taking Care of Business- in a flash.
Elvis performed at the Dane County Coliseum, Madison, Wisconsin.
