Memphis - Day One

Our hotel doesn't have a business center and we didn't bring laptops, so we're at Kinko's right now. Tom is checking email and I'm downloading some photos from yesterday for your viewing pleasure!

Here's when we were registering at the hotel, which is right across the street from Graceland. Tom's checking out the collection of Elvis's gold records that are among the scads of memorabilia in the hotel lobby.


Each of the hotel's guest rooms is adorned with Elvis photos!


The guitar-shaped pool. Tom snapped this from the second floor balcony.

Careful where you park here!

Later we went to dinner in downtown Memphis, right around the corner from Beale Street. We were seated in an atrium area of the restaurant and were really taken by the greenhouse-style ceiling.

We each made an attempt at an artsy-fartsy photo. Here's mine...

And here's Toms.

Our server took our photo. The meal was fantastic but we were exhausted, having been up since 3 a.m.

Back at the hotel, there's an all-Elvis-all-the-time movie channel. This is some kind of rock-and-roll-Elvis-as-spy-in-Arabia flick.

Which brings us to Kinko's where Tom is checking email!


I'll post tomorrow (Tuesday) about our day today.

With you out of town, PIO, I hear the loco female blogger's are getting serious about their desire to, "want your job", become reality.

Hurry back!!

Your "arty photo" blows Tom's out of the water. (Sorry, Tom.)

Enjoy Memphis!

That is some pool. It is super hot here. You got out of town just in time.

Can we get Tom to go back and get the full guitar into the frame?

Cafe Pasadena,

If you are referring to a certain blogger who is after AE and constantly responds to her own blogs and cuts anyone down who doesn't agree with her outlandish and crazed opinions...

heaven help us!

I have no 1 in particular. But, the clue of "outlandish & crazed opinions" is of no help in this case!

But, I wunder if your person also responds, anon of course, to her own comments...

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
