Thur 7 July 2016. After leaving Nashville we head to Graceland Graceland Memphis Tennessee. (Now stop singing Paul Simon's song 😊

Graceland is a modest sized home. We toured the ground floor and basement room's and adjoining buidings of the home. Upstairs has been kept private. Then there were the trophy room, car collection, awards and concert outfits. Ornately decorated with the signature belt buckles.

The tour was conducted by ipad and headphones giving an oratory by John Stamos and the Presley family includung recordings from Elvis. Very informative of the enternainer, family man and generous benefactors to many many charities and individuals. Of which he did not seek notice. We finished the tour at the burial plots of the Elvis, his parents and grandmother. Very moving, interesting, sad and a trip down memory lane for us. Francine still remembers when she was about 10 yo playing Elvis' I Want to be Your Teddy Bear album/record over and over with her sister Leanne. Elvis. The King Lives On. Angie's best memories are the Elvis movies and favorite Blue Hawaii.

No more can be said, so enjoy the photos, they cannot truly capture the moment and memories.
