Elvis & Hee-Haw
I may be a little biased, but Soul City rocked it out. I personally think they were better than the Imperials.
A couple of days later, someone asked what her name was. Then I thought, hmmm...IDK. She never said her name...she just introduced herself to us as Nurse Goodbody.
After searching for Nurse Goodbody on google, I have found that the real Nurse Goodbody is actually Gunilla Hunton who was on the show from '69 till '97. Here is Gunilla now.
We met Wendy Lynn Adams. Here is the link to her and her husband's website.
This site also gave a quote where Wendy claimed to be Elvis' "prayer partner". Um, ok. I'll give her that one.
I have honestly spent hours on this. I can compare the feelings on this to when I found out there wasn't a Santa Claus, and when I found out Delilah was not in Memphis, but a syndicated show out of California. (I'm still not over that one)
What I can't get over, is that she visited my home church several times during that week, introducing herself as Nurse Goodbody. So this wasn't a one-time introduction, or encounter with her at Graceland. She made this statement to a lot of people.
Maybe she was a stand-in? Maybe she was a back-up singer? IDK.
I know our Hee-Haw bubble was busted. Corey and I feel a little bit of anger for falling for it. Why would she let us go on and on, seeing how excited we were?
I'm sure she is a very nice lady. And it seems that she does a lot of work with the homeless in her hometown in California.
But gloom, despair and agony on us. We met another, and PHFFFT, she is gone!
