Weekend Scoop: Graceland Edition

by Kay Lynn

I’m in Memphis this weekend and spent part of yesterday touring Graceland.  For those that may not know, Graceland was Elvis Presley’s home and is now his final resting place.

I remember Elvis quite well as my mom was a fan before I was born.  I must admit to liking quite a bit of his music.  The real purpose of the trip is to visit my grandson and daughter-in-law.  It’s been a wonderful three days and I hate to see it end.  Until next time.

Thanks for including my link! Memphis is on my list of places to go too; although I don’t have relatives there to encourage making the trip sooner.

I love Memphis and Graceland. I’m a huge Elvis fan and dragged my mom years ago on the tour. I loved it!

I loved the tour. We couldn’t see all the exhibits because the little guy was getting cranky and needed a nap.
