Driving along the I-40 this morning.
It doesn't look like there is any traffic on the road, but believe me it was not the case. There were a lot of trucks, but they move along pretty good. We enjoyed the journey...

|Dinner tonight - #2 of Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - Tom's BBQ|
We decided to try his famous Rib Tips - and we have to say Guy was right again - they were awesome!!
|Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the ribs were sure good!!|
|Elvis' airplane "Lisa Marie" - the larger of the two airplanes that he owned.|
|Elvis's final resting ground. His mother and father, as well as his grandmother are all burried here at Graceland.|
So much to see - and I've only just touched on it - we were at Graceland for almost 4 hours. There were at least half a dozen exhibits besides the mansion, including his automobiles, his motorcyles, souvenier shops, there were home movies, a photo gallery, clothing displays - the list goes on.... then there were souvenier shops, restaurants, a place to have your picture taken with Elvis, and did I mention souvenier shops? Yes there was paraphernalia everywhere - I LOVED IT!!! And of course Elvis sang the whole time.
