Woman sings praises of Elvis rock
EmptyESTES PARK, Colo. -- You can't think about rock without thinking of Elvis. Not this rock, anyway.
Rock collector LaDell Alexander, 60, has found a stone she swears has the face of Elvis Presley on it. You don't have to think Elvis is everywhere to see it: A pattern on the rock resembles a human head with dark hair and the king of rock's trademark muttonchop sideburns.
Alexander, who splits her time between Estes Park and Texas, said the rock was one of many she bought in various places last summer. She didn't notice the pattern until she took the rocks to Texas and cleaned them before using them to decorate her yard.
"I was about 20 feet away and the first thing I said was, 'That is Elvis,"' said her husband, Lynn Alexander, 63.
The Alexanders plan to sell the rock on eBay in August and donate the proceeds to one of Presley's foundations. The singer died on Aug. 17, 1977.
"People are calling me the Elvis Rock Lady," LaDell Alexander told The (Fort Collins) Coloradoan. "Seven out of 10 people see Elvis" on the rock, she said.
