My step-dad and mom are going to Graceland today in celebration of her 62nd birthday. I RRREEAAALLLLLYYYY want to be there right now with them, road-tripping to Memphis and cruising down Elvis Presley Boulevard. After Graceland, they are going to Tupelo, MS to see Elvis' birthplace. Lucky them!
Graceland is awesome. The last time I made my pilgrimage was in 1999, after Elvis' aunt Delta died and the curators of Graceland decided to show the kitchen on the tour of his house. The tickets to see the mansion, airplanes (2 of them), and the "Sincerely, Elvis" museum cost $18 back then. Probably more now. I really want to go. Did I say that already?
Ok, ok. You can make fun of me now.
