Greetings from Memphis, home of the blues and birthplace of rock 'n roll!
At least that's what they claim:
Here's the skyline as we crossed the Mighty Mississippi...
and The Pyramid:
Of course, we have the obligatory picture in front of The Pyramid:
Please excuse my makeup-less, frumpy, road-weary self.
I understand that they no longer regularly use the Pyramid for sporting events and according to Wikipedia, the last concert was held in 2007. It seems a shame and a great waste. Darn that new-fangled FedExForum!
We also have a special guest traveling with us.
If you have or have had a 3rd grader then you are familiar with Flat Stanley.
Meet his very distant cousin, Flat Glenn.
Flat Glenn was very excited about his first visit to Memphis. He really wanted to go to Beale Street but unfortunately we didn't have time. Memphis is just a pit stop on this Great American Road Trip 2009.
Tomorrow we hit the road for Chattanooga. See you there!
