Vernon never had any money to be tight about and was the one left to clean up Elvis's financial mess when Elvis died.<quoted text>
Elvis gave his toys away as a child.
I don't think that he was trying to buy friendships.
Gladys must've taught him that it is better to give than recieve.
Anyway, Vernon was tight with his money and Elvis wasn't.
Since it was Elvis's money, Vernon couldn't do anything about it.
Elvis got joy seeing people happy. That is why he did it.
But if you crossed him, he would sense it.
Elvis's parents were too poor to buy him toys as a child and Elvis kept to himself any way.
