There he was, Elvis Presley, Yes! The King!!!
Standing right in the middle of downtown Mason, dressed in a white one-piece outfit, studded with rhinestones, those famous gold sunglasses covering his eyes, and the long sideburns with his dark bouffant hairstyle. My husband and I just stood there with our mouths wide-open, starring at the King of Music. What do you say to Elvis?
Slowly, he lifted his upper lip to one side, extending his right hand and said: "Glad to meet you!" "Glad to meet you!"
Still speechless, we shook the King’s hand as he asked us to point him in the direction of Willow Creek Restaurant. We just nodded our heads yes and extended out an arm in a southerly direction. "Thank you very much!" "Thank you very much!" He said.
Walking away, he turned slightly to say, "This little town has some great food."
I started at Dairy Queen with a dip cone, Tres Cominos for a burrito, Mason Donut for a strawberry filled donut, a nice thick steak at Peanut Mill, beef ribs at Deadwood, nachos at Zavala’s Pizza(all the way of course) at Short Stop, a double decker subway at Town and Country, meatloaf at Square Plate. And I hear Willow Creek has great pie. "A Huh, A Huh, did I miss anything?".
Well, my husband spoke up to say there is Northside Café for a great hamburger with fries, Cat’s Meow serves up soup and sandwiches, Santos for queso and chips and Cooper’s BBQ has Texas sausage.
Great! "Thank you very much!" "Thank you very much!"
Finally, I got up enough courage to ask him what he was doing in Mason, Texas.
Raising that upper lip to one side he responded. "I’m playing a gig at the Fine Arts Association Christmas party." "I hear it’s the place to be on Saturday, December 12. He walked towards Willow Creek Restaurant, his right sleeve stained with strawberry filling, singing a traditional Elvis holiday song. I’ll have a Blue, Blue Christmas without you!! DaDaDa DaDa.
