Thumbs Up Graceland!



Memphis, Tennessee!  It was a pleasure!  It was a little scary getting there as there had been major flood and tornado warnings, but it didn’t stop me from going and both my friend and I lived to tell, bonus!


There we saw the Duck Walk, (twice!), ate fine Cajun food (the best gumbo yet), shopped, saw the ending of the MLK ceremonies and had Jack Daniel’s Jell-O shots on Beale Street (those things take no prisoners)!  


I was told I had to go to Graceland no matter what even though I don’t like Elvis.  Sure it was a huge overpriced tourist trap, but I never would have lived it down if I had gone to Memphis and skipped seeing Graceland.  Sadly, while in Memphis, I never did see an Elvis impersonator.  Maybe this was because it was cold and rainy.  And maybe, just maybe, it was better that way…


Want the dirty details of Memphis?  All for you, my friend! à
