Photo du Jour: I'm Going to Graceland . . .

For our return trip to New Orleans from St. Louis we decided to stretch the drive to two days and spend the night in Memphis--well, actually Tunica, Mississippi. But before driving those last 30 miles into Mississippi and Tunica, we decided to be counted as part of the 700,000 annual vistors to Elvis' house Graceland. I don't know which was more tramatizing . . . the hideous interiors at Graceland (I finally saw firsthand the three TV room) or the Disney-fied Pat O'Brien's on Beale Street complete with the centerhall, the local's bar on the left, the piano bar on the right, and the courtyard straight ahead with fountain con flame.
