Re: “Slide Home

Smoking is a deal breaker for my group. Ruins the appetite. Sorry! It is an irritant and the nasty smell on your clothes and hair linger for hours after you leave a smoking establishment. Won't be seeing us there.

Re: “The Rant

I love Memphis!! 'Nuff said!!

I also remember downtown back in the 70's - 80's. It wasn't a place you would normally go to for restaurants or music. When I did venture downtown all the tourists there were Elvis fans looking for Sun Studios. The Rivermont was the only place to stay. I did take friends from out of town there to see the river before taking them to Graceland...the only "tourist" attraction. We would spend most of our time in Germantown/Cordova shopping and eating...

What a difference a decade made. Since the early 80's, the downtown area has been coming back. If we could only turn the Pyramid into a casino with shops and restaurants...I can dream...

Re: “Florida T-Shirt Company Creates Shirt to Benefit Flood Victims

How much is a "portion" of the proceeds? Most times a very small percentage of the monies actually go to the charity. I know the costs of similar tshirts and even by giving the charity 50% + of the price, it will still leave the company a profit that will more than cover the expenses.

Re: “Tweets: On Elvis and Ben Vaughn

@Anthony Bourdain's comment: And this coming from a man that will eat puppies, kittens and horses. BTW, saw ads for his show...does he ever bathe?

Re: “Poplar and Perkins in 1951 - From the Air!

Maybe Elvis purposely got off at White Station to avoid being mobbed by waiting fans??? If he was expected to return to town on that day, fans would have been waiting at the station closest to his home. From what I've read, he was constantly followed by crowds of fans that monitored his every move.
