One day Vernon came home and told Elvis about this horrendous tacky furniture he had seen in a department store. It was Hawaiian with dreadful carving of heads and faces. There were big pieces of furniture -very imposing and ugly. He thought they were the worst thing he’d ever seen and could not believe they had it for sale.
Elvis waited for Vernon to go to bed and rang up the store owner. He arranged for the furniture to be delivered and arranged in the room.
The next morning Vernon came down to find the Jungle Room set up with all that garish furniture.
Elvis had a sense of humour.
They grew to like it and Elvis had the waterfall put in. They called it the Jungle room and he often used to sit in their and jam with his band.
