Memphis



I made it to Texas last week and internet was hooked up today. It feels good to finally be connected and in the know. The warmer temperatures are so strange. It's nice now but the summer is going to be roasting.
Memphis was the first city I stopped at on the way down. It was actually Elvis' birthday but by the time I got to Memphis and achieved my goal of eating some dynamite ribs, my party shoes were tired. So the next morning I drove to Graceland and to the place where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot. The Elvis souvenir was in a gift shop a short distance away from Graceland. Quite creepy. After seeing the sites, I continued on my way.

Yo Keith! I heard the word that you up and left the Times Herald. Nice! So, I googled you and how easy it was to find you (aside from that whole Russian named blog thing). Anyway, glad to see you made it to TX with your lady.
