Driving Miss Dixie – Day 6

Posted on December 02, 2013 by Marna

dixiegraceWith a good night’s rest, Dixie and I set out to see The King first thing in the morning.  We were there early enough to get lots of dog humilating pictures in before the old folks came for their 10 a.m. tours. The mansion is preserved to its 1970’s glory – lots of shag and lots of gold. I can see that at my mother’s museum. I found the gold records and movie posters more interesting.

I made a quick run to Beale Street where I was told to have a Blue Hawaiian with a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. I opted for a local beer and gumbo cheese fries instead.  Afterwards, Dixie and I had a quick hillside walk to view the Mississippi before driving another 340 miles.

    Marna! Loving the adventures of Miss Red and Dixie (that’s what I’m calling you both). I am happy to see you made it to Memphis and I look forward to your next stop and report. Please be careful in that crazy weather and take your time.

    You are sorely missed in the office.
