Day 59, Sunday October 27 Dickson, TN to Memphis, T

A very easy drive. Decided to start our Memphis experience with a tour of GRACELAND! We had talked to our old friend, Ludie Henley, who said that it would be a crime to go to Memphis and not go to Graceland. She’s been there twice!. Keith had called while we were on route, and suggested that we get in the mood by listening to the satellite Elvis station to get warmed up. Glad we did. Learned a lot about Elvis that we didn’t know – such as his charities, his inner anxieties, his military service. His car exhibit was the best for me. Why in the world don’t the car manufactures take a clue and make car exteriors fun
again. Peter had researched BBQ places and so we went to the INTERSTATE BBQ restaurant for some extremely good BBQ – so good, in fact, that we arranged to pick up some on the way to Belzoni the next day. After lunch, we drove on to the PEABODY Hotel. What a lovely ole style delightful place! Arrived in time to watch the Bronco’s astoundingly successful football game on TV as well as witness the historical moment of the ducks’ march out of the fountain in the middle of the Peabody’s lobby. After the game, we gussied up and went to BEALE STREET, to sample their current versions of the Blues. Was fun.
