Memphis ...

You hear “Memphis” – you think Elvis Presley & Graceland, B.B. King, The Wiggles.

Huh? The Wiggles?

Yes, it’s true. In the land described as the birthplace of rock ‘n roll and soul music we saw the children’s group The Wiggles at the FedEx Forum.

Fortunately we also made it to Graceland & the famous soul-music Beale Street. Tomorrow we’re off to Nashville. We have no plans for what to see in do in Nashville except we’ve learned that the Jack Daniels Distillery is only an hour outside of Nashville (in Lynchburg) and after spending an afternoon with The Wiggles we’re wondering if they offer J.D. samples.???

Seriously though, even Todd had to admit that the Wiggles were OK and Toria particularly loved them. She was dancing and waving and yelling with the 5-year-olds. Tomas’ keeps talking that they drove their ‘Big Red Car’ onto the stage.

(Don’t have a child under 5? – The Wiggles are 4-grown men from Australia who dance, sing, and do actions with the help of Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog, Henry the Octopus, & (my personal favourite) Captain Feathersword. Think “Barney” as a person with more class).

Graceland was well, Graceland. Gave our respects to The King of Rock ‘n Roll. Tomas & Toria loved the pink Cadillac and the Lisa Marie airplane.

We were also rewarded with great weather again (+28C/~85F) today and took advantage of hitting a few balls at the driving range. Loving it!
