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.
I haven’t gotten much reading done other than my current Yakezie team mates. But there is plenty of great articles in that sample to make you think this week.
