We left the coast yesterday at 10:00am and got home last night about 10:30. We stopped in Shreveport for an hour to eat. Doing a 720 mile trip with 3 kids in 12 hrs is pretty good. So now we're back in the oven of Wichita Falls TX. After being around all of the nice green foliage of Memphis and the coast, the scortched brown area of North TX is just plain dreary.
The pic below is the legendary Sun Recording Studios on Union St. in Memphis. This is where Elvis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash began their recording careers. It was very cool (but crowded) going in here. The lady who made the famous fried peanut butter sandwiches that Elvis liked still works in the cafe here.
And of course no trip to Memphis would be complete without visiting Graceland. Below is yours truly at the gates to E's mansion. I didnt take the tour inside because I found out that Priscilla and Lisa Marie sold most of their interest in the Elvis estate.
So thats it for now. I'm back in hell...err Texas. Oh yea...I got a notice that I have jury duty starting this Monday. I havent been to work at my military job for the last 3 weeks, so lets make it an even one month.
