I'm All Shook Up

Last night a local committee of great ladies, who accepted me as a member, saw a project to its fruition.  In years past we had events entitled, "Jammin' on the Square".  These events showcased different types of music, performed on our historic town square, for free.  The community was encouraged to bring a lawn chair and join in a fun night of music and food.  Sadly, it has been a couple of years since something like that has happened around Smalltownland.  

But then.....this committee decided to spring into action and bring back this event and last night it came back with a bang! 

People set up chairs on the town square and enjoyed a free concert of local performers and an Elvis impersonator.  Yes, I said an Elvis impersonator.  And....he was good. 



He entertained the crowd with great music and some great moves.  And as the evening wore on, he stepped it up a notch. 

Ladies and gentlemen....he broke out the Vegas jumpsuit.  Toots, bless her heart, asked me just how on earth did he put on that thing?

The ladies were swooning over him and he obliged by giving away scarves....dabbed with his sweat. 


Words escape me people.....words escape me......

  1. I am glad to hear that a town square event has been revived. And since you're in Kentucky, I hope the Elvis impersonator sang "Kentucky Rain!"

  26. First, way to go for bringing back this community event! Secondly, what an impersonator. I think I have his twin living local on the prairie.

  27. So......how many sweaty scarves did you being home?

  28. Don't you just love a small town. Lawn chairs set up in the town square for a concert sounds heavenly to me. Then throw in an Elvis wannabe. He looks like the real thing. Being an Elvis fan, I would have been fighting for a scarf.LOL I actually saw Elvis in Vegas in 1970...boy that dates me.
    Looks like you and your committee had a success.

  31. WOW! You guys had a heck of a turnout. Just shows how much the folks have missed it!

  32. Nice images of the event. Some of these impersonators can be better than the real thing as it is a night of enjoyment rather than being awestruck with the star ... I'm not sure how that extends to Mr Anon's sweat though. Maybe the line between real and fake has been blurred to an extent whereby Elvis does live after all !!
