Golfing with Elvis

So, after a stressful day on the job I headed directly to the club to hit some balls and have a practice round. As I was on our range (there were only a few people as it was over 100) I noticed the guy right next to me: really thick head of black hair (had to be miserable in that heat), sideburns, even sunglasses that are a little Elvis-like). I tried not to stare. After a few minutes I said, "Boy, I sure wish it'd warm up." His reply sounded just like Elvis, "Yeah, it's mighty balmy..." I headed over and tee'd off on #1 and noticed he was walking by carrying his bag. So, I had to ask. Sure enough, he's Johnny Reno - Elvis impersonator, and a member at our club. I used to be in a band (vocals and guitar) before I became a family man and we talked vocals a little, music, etc. Very nice guy. We plan to play some golf together. You gotta love Elvis...and Elvis impersonators...

    As the golf ball flies



    On a warm and balmy day

    BPH was on the range...

    In the meadow (in the meadow)



    And his young bride cries

    Cause if there's one thing that he don't need

    It's another set of blades you see

    In the meadow (in the meadow)

    Iʻve seen a few guys that resembled Elvis over the years with fine looking women at their side.

    Most Elvis impersonators arenʻt that good looking. i m h o

    I had to dig this photo out. After golf on my league one Monday probably 10 years ago, this guy wanders into the patio of the golf course:

    My dad didn't golf much but he had the Elvis hair style, jet black and wavy, best hair iv'e ever seen. Made Elvis look bald. lol. No way he was changing that look, passed away at 75 and still had every hair he ever had and it was still black and wavy. Brylcreem stock took a nose dive the day dad passed. He loved that stuff.
