Lake Martin Voice is proud to give the Reader of the Month award to Robert M for his timely, well captured pictures of Elvis’ performance at Jim’s Bait Shop on Highway 50 on July 3.
Knowing what a huge fan I am, Robert M acted fast on Friday when I sent out this post about The King’s upcoming appearance. When I realized I could not be there in person, I sent out an impassioned plea for anyone to take some pics or video. Al Gore’s “internet” did the job, spreading the word far and wide. They say that Twitter has proved its chops with the Iranian voting scandal, but I say that Elvis at Jim’s Bait Shop trumps that.
Elvis is patriotism in a white jump suit.
I bet he was singing Burnin Love right here.
On behalf of all Lake Martin Elvis fans, thanks to Jim’s Bait Shop for making this happen.
