Elvis Week

Lisa Marie Presley at Elvis Week 2018

FRIDAY AUGUST 10th – ELVIS WEEK DAY 1 I woke up around 3:45am (on purpose) after about 4 or 5 hours of sleep. I left Cookeville just before 4:30am and headed toward Memphis in the dark and the rain.

Elvis Week 2018

After 3 months, I’m finally home

My U2 360 tour ended 2 weeks ago, but I just got home yesterday. I was hiding out at my parents’ house in Maryland avoiding reality. I drove exactly 18,073 miles through 31 states since I left Memphis May 14th. I saw 16 wonderful U2 shows, saw lots of great American sights and met lots of [continue reading]

2010 My Year in Review

I had a fantastic 2010 and am looking forward to 2011. I visited many places I had been wanting to visit. I did not make it through my entire list, but I made quite a dent. January I attended Elvis’ Birthday weekend celebration. It would have been his 75th, so there was a lot of hoopla, [continue reading]
