I don't want to hijack the thread and my story isn't Bruce related but it's along the same lines. As I've mentioned on here before, I have a little girl who's 4 years old now. She was born in my early twenties. Her mother and I have a very turbulent relationship where we've had to go through family courts so I can see my girl after attempts made to stop us from having a father/daughter relationship now.
After a couple years of only having her for hours every week I now have her for the whole weekend every other week. Asides from Bruce, I'm also a huge fan of Elvis Presley. And recently when my daughter was with me I was playing some Elvis songs through my speaker whilst getting her dressed in the morning. She started dancing. I started dancing. She asked what was happening. I says, this is Elvis Presley and he has this effect on us.
I've then shown her pictures and videos of Elvis and she's realised he plays guitar. Like daddy. And she's realised he has a quiff. Like daddy. Infact now on a very rare occasion if I pick her up from her mum's and my hair isn't styled, she'll tell me off and tell me to get back "the Elvis hair". My daughter's name is quite similar to Elvis actually and her middle name is Marie, so her name isn't too distant of Elvis' daughter Lisa-Marie.
One day she drew a picture of Elvis and asked me to take a picture of it to send to him. It was funny that she thought I had Elvis' number but I didn't know how to explain to her that Elvis died so long ago that Daddy's mum was only a little girl when it happened. But I decided to just tell her I've sent it and we're just waiting on Elvis responding with his blessing.
The other weekend my 4 year old actually asked me to teach her how to put an actual record on my turntable and she plays Jailhouse Rock on repeat. And the following weekend I had her, we also had a visit from her cousin who is the same age. We go to the supermarket to get some things and suddenly my daughter asks her cousin if she likes Lisa Marie Presley. I found that so funny, that a four year old even knows who that is (I know I taught her but still), funny that she just assumes every other 4 year old would also know who Lisa Marie Presley is and even funnier that she didn't even ask her about Elvis.
Anyhow, I rambled on a bit there but your lovely story just reminded me of the sheer happiness I feel when I see my girl dancing to Jailhouse Rock.
