terry lee and elvis

hey y’all!

what do you get when you cross the FAGs with an Elvis impersonator (i mean, elvis TRIBUTE ARTIST)?!

a hunka hunka burnin’ FUN!!

if it’s wednesday nights at giovanni’s in copperas cove, tx, then it’s ELVIS night! pal and fellow FAG bonnie was already an elvis-night veteran and wanted the rest of us to experience him. i mean … it. the show.

before the concert, “elvis” welcomed me to the show and i promptly told him i was an “elvis impersonator concert virgin”. whaaa?! where did that come from?!

he asked, “what are you?” i guess the noise of the restaurant kept him from hearing my comment. but could i just leave it alone?! no. i could not.

i replied, “i’m a virgin.” WTF?! then i added quickly, “of elvis impersonator concerts.” sigh. let me try one more time: “i’ve never been to an elvis impersonator concert.” geez.

well, the virgin part didn’t seem to bother him. he quickly proceeded to explain to me that he doesn’t like to be called an elvis “impersonator”. he prefers “elvis tribute artist” … because no one can truly BE elvis, blahblahdiddyblahblah.

okay. strike one for terry lee. the concert hadn’t even started and i’d already insulted elvis. criminy.

i apologized profusely and even promised to shine his blue suede shoes (haha) … then he went on his merry way to change into full elvis gear in the restaurant bathroom.

let. the. show. BEGIN!

it was a total blast! elvis (aka johnny memphis, aka “i could tell you his real name but then i’d have to kill you”) his gorgeous self was QUITE the showman. ohmy! even though i’ve never seen an elvis tribute artist in person, i’d seen plenty on tv and the internet. this guy is one of THE BEST. he not only looks the part, but his voice is practically dead-on elvis.

since it’s a small venue, “elvis” walked around and interacted a lot with his audience. naturally, he gave OUR table quite a bit of attention. who could resist three middle-aged FAGs (aka mature, beautiful women)?!

okay, fine. my gorgeous 26 year old daughter (tara) might have been the reason too.

anyway, took lots of pic and videos which i want to share with you. hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the experience. and if you’re in central texas … GO see him at giovanni’s (yummy italian food!) in cove on a wednesday night.

the first video is “elvis” singing “jailhouse rock” with a sweet little old lady dancing her heart out. it also includes tara, jannetta and bonnie having fun:

the following video is “elvis” singing “are you lonesome tonight?” he’s working his way to our table when some (damn) ladies get in his way. he finally makes it to me (holding the camera) and then there’s an awkward crotch shot (UNintentional ………… or was it?). hahaha! enjoy:

thankyou. thankyouverymuch. 🙂

love and hugs,
terry lee

centerpiece

hey again,

so much for keeping my blog fresh. sigh … oh well.

have had such a difficult time shaking this illness. i feel semi-okay one day, the next like death. it’s been exactly FOUR weeks since i started this stuff. enough already, i say!

okay, anyhow, i did manage some junking on friday. matt (my son) and i went to the GW bargain barn in cove. lotsa fun and came home with a few treasures. pics below.

also including a couple of other pictures from around the house. i made a fantastico centerpiece using the infamous roadside white plates and some yummy turquoise-esque beads and feathers. i was pleased with its beauty and uniqueness. my son looked at it as if a space alien had just landed on the table. hmmph. that boy needs some culture.

enjoy the pics and pretend i said something clever here at the end. 🙂

love and hugs,
terry lee

my son liked the shape of this box with the attached lid, but NOT the flowers. he's taking it on as an art project ... will paint it red and use it for something, well, something.
