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
