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

Hey Y’all!

The Girls were let loose on the streets of Waco this weekend. My shopping buddies (and dear, dear friends) and I went junkin’ on Saturday and Waco was our target destination.

Had it all planned out … I googled antique and thrift stores in Waco, complete with a map pinpointing the location of each one. We promptly got lost and ended up in a not-so-nice neighborhood. No worries. One of us spotted a yard sale sign and we soon forgot about the map.

I scored TONS of bling (pics below), including some way cool antique watches (for crafting projects). The prices weren’t bad, but I paid a much higher price for traipsing through their tall grass: chigger bites all over my lower legs. Hmmph!

Eventually we found two of the four GWs in Waco. The Girls scored some goodies and I stocked up on some dangly earrings (a girl can NEVER have too many dangly, blingy earrings!).

As planned, we swooped around The Circle and ate at The Elite … an historic landmark in Waco. Elvis frequented The Elite when he was stationed at Fort Hood in the 50s. Good food, good friends, good times.

We finally made it downtown to The Gossip Bench, a quaint little antique store. Treasure pics below.

Got home last night, exhausted but happy. Junkin’ with The Girls is always good medicine for me. And I got a full dose of it this weekend!

Enjoy the pics.

Love and hugs to all,

Terry Lee
