Elvis

I use to make fun of those people who claimed to see Elvis alive after all these years, but from this day forward not one single jest, jab, or joke will be made at those people's expenses. Because I too, have seen Elvis. Yes, it's true. Here is my story. Tonight I went into the local Piggly Wiggly (for those of you in northern USA and Canada, that's a grocery store we have here in the back woods of the South)--

- ok ok, so we don't actually have a Piggly Wiggly, gee, I can't finish my story if you keep interuptin' like that!

Anyway, back at the Piggly Wiggly, I was buying some spinich and 'maters (also known at tomatoes) when in he walked. His sideburns were down to his chin. He wore a black button down-Johhny Cash kind of shirt. He had on jeans and a black cowboy hat. I bet you didn't know that Elvis was an OU football fan. Well, he is. I saw the crimson OU pin in the middle of his hat! Elvis bought a few things. I couldn't really see what he had because he was holding it all pretty close. But I think he got a 'mater and some Cheetos.

I saw him get into a long black limo and drive away. He was drivin'. Hmm... didn't Elvis sing about a Long Black Limousine? Hmm.... intersting... very intersting.

The PIGGLY WIGGLY?!!!

That's too funny! Elvis in a Piggly Wiggly? I can believe in Elvis, but no way is there a grocery chain called Piggly Wiggly! No way! (Snort! Honk!)

There was a Piggly Wiggly in the little town I lived in outside of Ft. Worth, TX.

I'll have to keep my eye open for this Elvis. I've seen the "Fro" guy (who never left the 60's-70's) around town but not Elvis.

*bowing head* I apologize if the Fro guy is a relative.

Cindy don't worry, Fro Man isn't one my relatives. If he is I don't claim him.

Ah, the Piggly Wiggly--as a child I called it The Wiggly Piggly. Now that brings back memories. There are still some scattered throughout the smaller cities in Georgia. When I was growing up, the places to shop were The Piggly Wiggly and the A&P. Sigh.

Oh, and welcome to the RevGals!
