I got to go spend 5 days with my sister in Mississippi - Tenessee. We has such a good time. We spent 2 days touring around Memphis and learning all about Elvis Presley. I had no idea how much that guy made and still makes. We spent one day at Graceland, Sun Studio, Mississippi River and Beale Street. Memphis is definately the Heart of the Blues. Beale Street was so fun to walk around and hear all the live music going on in the background. We ate good ole southren ribs and a rib joint in the middle of an alley downtown. They were fabulous and yes I did eat a whole rack of ribs! Sun Studio was really cool to see and tour. The studio is were Elvis came in and made his first no.1 record in 1956. One year later he had already made his first million dollars. Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King, Johnny Cash and a lot of other famous singers from that era started out in Sun Studios. The 2nd day of touring was the Civil Rights Museum. They turned the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated into the museum. It was a pretty solemn place to be. It makes you wonder how humans can be so cruel to other humans and the sad part about it was it didn't happen to long ago. We also saw a little more of downtown Memphis and finished the day off with some shopping. You can't go on vacation and not shop especially when you are with your sister and no kids. I was fed each night by Sergio's mother who is Brazilian and she makes great food. I also topped it off each night with some ice cream, popcorn and late night movies. I did get some exercise in so I think it may have canceled out the ice cream but who cares, I was on vacation!! Love you Stacy for showing me Memphis and making me laugh to tears!
