Elvis Week 2008

I had just moved to Memphis for the second time the month before Elvis Week 2008. I am not sure why, but I cannot find any photos from this Elvis Week, so I apologize for the lack of visual stimulation. Also, there wasn’t a lot of detail in my journal – just the highlights. Saturday [continue reading]
