flew to nashville. but not before bumping into roy at bwi.
deplaned, caught my ride, sunset-drove straight to memphis.
ate four consecutive barbeque meals.
checked out sun studio. elvis sung here. johnny cash too. and now us three.
saw about twenty horse-drawn carriages, ~80% with companion dog like so.
realized 'memphis' comes from egypt. too bad this is surrounded by interstates and parking lots - and isn't in use.
..for both replica and real mississippi rivers.
drove to arkansas for a few hours.
wonder exactly how many people missed that typo before it went to print.
can't visit the south without re-enactments.
headed to beale street..
for performance art
for live music
for colorful characters
..and late night magic.
drove right past graceland. yeah no thanks.
zoomed in on a telephone pole.
praised jesus on a nondescript sunday in june, in a crowd of just three hundred. best music in memphis.
made it back to nashville for a rough 2012 ehbs workweek in good company.
