Walkin in Memphis part 1

A couple weeks ago, hubs and I went to Memphis for the day.

It was alot of fun, expensive and a tad cheesy. However, I love Elvis and grew up listening to him and remember when he died like it was yesterday. I was only 9, but it was all over the news for weeks.

It is everything you would expect and more. I am not going to post a bunch of pictures because I think it would spoil it for someone who actually wanted to go. Here are a few to whet your appetite.
Elvis loved horses and there is still a stable here with rescue horses that Priscilla brought home.

This is to the immediate right as you enter the front door.

                                      This is like a Hall of Fame in his old racquetball court,
This is the kitchen where he made his famous peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

We saw the airplanes, the car museum and a tour of different memorabilia in a different building.
Here is the famous pink Cadillac. I hope my kids buy me a cool car someday!
Thank you for stopping by and coming along to see Elvis. There is MUCH more to post and see ! You will have to come back to see the rest.

The WOW diaries

In the famous words of my chihuahua Hank " I can't catch a break arounds here"

Poor Kid has got himself into a bit of wow trouble lately.

You have no idea how hard it is to get after this face.

Wows are just like kids, maybe worse. They have to be watched, taught and treated like a regular sized dog. Otherwise they become devils of society.

My chihuahuas "Chi- WOW- wa" are well behaved, but not today for some reason. Hank is barky, sullen and well naughty. I am busy upstairs painting and trowing away trash from moving boxes and I am paying for it.

Hank is not your ordinary wow, he likes to be outside, plays fetch and really wants to be a big dog.
He really is my therapy dog, I have become quite attached to him for company, comfort, entertainment and my general well-being.

I had better get back to work and finish so my pup can go back to being my lap dog where he belongs.
