Elvis Week 2019 Preview

This will be my 9th Elvis Week, and it seems I get more excited each year. Not sure yet if there will be a Jerry Schilling sighting, but we will be wearing our Jerry’s Girls shirts anyway.

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.

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]
