EW-DAY 1


We finally are in Memphis for Elvis Week. We left early Sunday at about 2:00 in the morning. We arrived In Memphis at around 8:00 in the morning and spent the morning in Horn Lake shopping and then went back to the room to catch some rest. We had only slept two hours of the last 30 or so. After a short nap we went down to Graceland Crossing to browse the shops and listen to some music at the tent. Not much that was exciting today going on for us but we will be getting in full swing of things tomorrow. I have already spent money though. I ran across the Out In Hollywood FTD. This CD sounds good and has many alternate takes that I have not heard. I have been screaming about wanting this for a long time because it is one of the older releases and had been discontinued. They happened to have about five copies in one of the shops at Graceland and I had to get it right away. For now that is it from us. We are going to get some rest so we are good to go tomorrow. We will be back this evening to share our adventures from day two in Memphis.

Where are you staying while in Memphis? Heartbreak hotel near Graceland? While your there see how much the CD "50,000 Elvis Fans Couldn't Be Wrong costs! The album with the gold suit. I had it as a little girl and it is now gone. Would love to have it.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Micki... we are staying in Mississippi actually. A lot safer and better food and accommodation's. As far as 50,000,000 Elvis fans can't be wrong, you can find it for about $18. Though I would recommend you get the FTD two disc edition. It is awesome with a lot extra alternate takes. It runs about $30.
