~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every month, my husband, Johnny, who has a wonderful voice, goes to three different nursing homes to sing. Usually, he sings a solo; however, here you see him singing along with the other volunteers. Some of the group members, wear Blue shirts.

(I purposely did not include pictures of the sixty residents in attendance.)


On this day, the group leader planned an extra exciting treat for the residents.
Here are three volunteers in Blue shirts, taking pictures. Don't they look like paparazzis?


Here's the reason for the excitement. Elvis was in the house!
 If you look closely, you'll see some Blue sequins on his outfit.


Oh, he was good!


Elvis in action. Look at his fringe swing!


What a good day. Everyone enjoyed it.

Happy Blue Monday!

What a great thing to be able to offer the residents, it must really make their day. I bet they loved Elvis!

Diana Taylor said...

Sorry Sally, I think I've linked myself twice - I seem to be 16 and 17! Don't know how!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

What a wonderful ministry your husband has! I'm sure his visits are always a blessing to the people at the nursing home ... but showing up on the same day as Elvis -- the residents must have been beside themselves! :-)

LV said...

Your fellow is a "Johnny of all trades". I think that is great. I try taking and visiting various nursing homes around here. They get so excited when someone different comes by and shows them a little attention. Some of the Elvis impersonators are very good.

Lina Gustina said...

What a noble thing to do -singing to please residents in nursing homes.
Elvis presence surely more brightened their day :)

Oh Sally, what a fun post. That Elvis looked really good!! My mom was in a nursing home when she couldn't walk or lift herself any longer, and we always enjoyed the entertainment. Every Tuesday evening they would have "Happy Hour" - ginger ale and chips! Have a wonderful week. xo

Good looking Elvis and you have a very sweet husband to do that for those old folks. :) Happy Blue Monday!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I didn't realize that Johnny was a singer. Don't know how I missed that, but maybe I did know. Come to think of it, I think he might have sung a wedding you mentioned to me.

Love Elvis. He does look a lot like him.

This is such a nice thing to do. It's good to be remembered, and I know the residents appreciate it.

XO,

Sheila

Haappy Blue MOnday Sally *hugs*
What a great day and what a wonderful thing that Johnny does! Singing like that. The seniors must have just loved all that entertainment and Elvis didn't look half bad either!

Thank you for the positive comment about my baking...imagine how much I could cook if I didn't work...hmmm...how fun a bakery would be...*s*..

have a great week.

Happy week and thank you for hosting!

Blondie's Journal said...

This is such a sweet thing for Johnny to do every month, all of the singers for that matter! And the Elvis impersonator was a wonderful idea, the residents must have been having a ball!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Your compliments made me feel so good!

XO,
Jane

WOW what an awesome look alike. I bet everyone had a great time with shaking those beads around ;-) Love it. I started to post yesterday and got distracted by the kids so here I am today....super late. Hope you have a wonderful week Sally!!!

barbarah said...

Of all the different groups that have come to my m-i-l's assisted living places, I don't think they've ever had an Elvis impersonator! That would have been fun.

Thanks for your perspectives on my post yesterday. I am glad you're still around. :-)

Shelia said...

Hi Sally! I'm sorry you were not able to find these little cutie pie rabbits. I just thought they were so sweet. Oh, I'm excited now! You're going to mention little ole me? :) I'll be there with bells on.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
