I got to meet Luther when we were in Memphis for an overnight getaway in June. We were at a bar and he sat down next to me while he was waiting for some take-out food. He pulled out a sketch book and I started asking him about the drawings. He offered on for sale at $10, but since I only had a $20 I gave him that and walked away with an amazing sketch of Johnny Cash and friends. We had about a 30 minute conversation about his days in Little Rock (where we now live) teaching at Central High School and his other travels and experience. Very interesting, intelligent man - great memory of Beale Street!
I met Mr. Hampton on the trolley yesterday. I always treat everyone with respect no matter how they look. (It really pays off)! Anyway, he resembled some of the homeless ppl I encountered while downtown Memphis. As I walked on the bus we spoke and began to conversate. He asked my husband and I where we are from. He explained he had a friend from Montgomery Al. And his friend's funeral was today. He was an intelligent man. Later on he said, "I am famous. You can read about me in the History Book. "He proceeded to show his work in a little notebook he was carrying. I was very impressed. He is such a talented man. I'm so glad I met him. But even more than that, I'm so glad I treated him nicely. I have always instilled in my kids, "Treat the janitor the way you treat the CEO." And be careful you could be entertaining an Angel.
You *must* bring this show to Europe! Especially Poland, where Liberace's heritage is from.
jrgolden - Don't worry, SCOTUS will soon discover the right to convenient shopping in the Constitution and mandate government subsidized and/or operated clothing, grocery and other stores.
(And for those who think this is far-fetched, there have been "news stories" and columns advocating this very thing in the local and national media.)
Just visited Memphis and of course Graceland on June 15 as part of my 70th birthday celebration, with my new wife of 11 years! She was thrilled to see Graceland, and so was I since it had been 28 years since last visiting. It was interesting to see all the changes which have been made to the property. Our trip to Meditation Garden was extremely hard, due to the fact that Elvis had been a big part of our lives for most of our early years.

With the closing of Shelton Clothiers there is, unfortunately, an absence of choices for adult male clothing.
What's the difference between an auxin and a hormone? You can hear a hormone.
Hi Zack: This shop looks great, so proud for you. Looking forward to on line ordering.
I was there last night, opening night. There may have a total of nine people. This production deserves a decent audience..
Um....mind listing the details of when the event is?
Where is Guy Lansky in this article?
I'm halfway through the book This is an excellent novel with insightful information. I have experienced the health care industry from both sides. Once as a nurse and the other as a patient. This book does cover many pitfalls of the medical system. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know the truth about the drug industry, insurance companies and the greed involved from the elite big money makers in the health care system.
I am also impressed by this young man. I am going to follow his career in fashion.
Does anyone really doubt that the city is not allowing people to go inside of the Coliseum during Roundhouse Revival because it helps take steam out of a redevelopment effort that includes preserving the original structure?
Love your pictures! Perfect with Mother's Day this week. Enjoyed reading. Thanks for sharing!
This is a great and beautiful store with fantastic service! I'm a 51 year old guitar player born and "Raised on Rock" (as the Elvis song goes) in Memphis, Tn. Every time I walk into this store I say to myself, "Man, this place is awesome, look at all these cool guitars and stuff!"
This is where I bought my newest very cool electric guitar! I am also having this store update the hardware on my Custom Handmade 1984 BC RICH Warlock too!

Wish you'd dilate on that comment a bit, CD.
Liberty at an ultimate price that prefigures so much erotica.
I remember teaching that novel at Memphis State in the '70s. It engaged the students -- both male and female -- to an unusual degree. They literally cheered as we discussed sections depicting Edna Pontellier's personal liberation.
