Memphis and Graceland!
The first night we got in we went out to eat at a great BBQ place. They had pink limousines that would pick you up from your hotel and bring you to the restaurant. It was packed in this place. They had a guy singing Elvis songs and Elvis impersonators eating dinner there. It was great and so was the food.
We woke up the next morning to find all the streets shut down for a Christmas parade (I know before Thanksgiving.)
It was such a great parade. It was all the local schools and community organizations. This picture was the Sassy Senior Ladies. They were hilarious! All the groups danced down the street and the school bands played. It was great!
Elvis apparently really liked toys that he could drive. He had snowmobiles fixed to drive on grass and golf carts galore.
Little Elvis fact, he was a commissioned narcotics office. Also, before he got too famous he actually asked out my Aunt Lynn, she said no because she thought he had the greasiest hair. hahaha!
He also hardly ever wrote his own songs.
