We left Texarkana at 5am, and let me tell you, it's DARK in the country at 5am!
I couldn't take any pics
mainly because I was sleeping
but also because it was too dark and there wasn't much to look at
other than counting down the mileage on George
Finally! Memphis is on the Map!
Thank goodness for coffee and words with friends!
Crossing the Mississippi River!
Man, the Tennessee welcome sign just snuck right up on me!
Small detour due to construction.
Cool old building snap shot as we turned around.
We made it to Elvis Presley Boulevard!
The house was built in 1939
Elvis bought it in 1957
I love the classic American Colonial style!
Now the inside...
that's another story
Front Piano Room
Who needs a 16 foot sofa?
Apparently Elvis did
The chandelier was actually really beautiful!
Family Dining Room
Don't drink and walk down these steps!
Basement hangout room.
Custom mural with the lightning bolt, Elvis' TCB signature logo
Takin' Care of Business!
Interesting accessories everywhere!
Welcome to the Jungle... Room
Lisa Marie's Swing Set
Back of the house
This was my favorite!
I have never seen a Grammy Award!
Elvis in the Army
The famed Eagle Cape
I can't believe how many awards Elvis received!
This is only one wall in one room!
The whole Presley family rests at Graceland
Oh, well hello there Rolls!
Looks like something from Back to the Future, ha!
The Pink Caddy
Makes me Smile :)
Little Lisa Marie
His signature was everywhere!
He signed every check and every bill
The Lisa Marie Airplane
Not much to look at inside
The Jet was cooler!
We couldn't go to Memphis without eating some delicious BBQ!
Corky's BBQ has been serving Memphis Style Dry Rub Ribs since 1984!
They are so good!
You can even have them sent overnight anywhere in the USA!
So long Memphis!
Next stop, Nashville!
