Linda's in love!!!

Just look at the expression on Linda's face and the way she is grasping her hands. She is gazing up Stephen Freeman doing his tribute to Elvis on our cruise and she was sooooooooooooo enjoying his performance. The way he shook his booty, the hairy chest visible through the opening in his leather outfit. Can you just imagine?
Her brother is also a tremendous Elvis fan and has a "weinner" dog named Elvis and has Elvis stuff all over the walls in his home. We recently got him a neon lighted guitar with Elvis on it to add to his collection.
I thought this picture was precious and just had to share it with you but you really had to have been there. At times she was squealing along with the teenagers when he did the right moves. I am so happy she had that fun time to remember because I do love her.
