The Presley Family

I have a long weekend between my Hampton classes. My sister flew in from Georgia yesterday evening and we are doing some sightseeing in Memphis and surrounding areas. We made a trip to Graceland today and took the tour.

There is a memorial to the twin brother of Elvis in the Mediation Garden, but Jessie is buried in an unmmarked grave in Tupelo, Lee County, Mississippi.

Life Among the Dead

This is Howard the cat. He is a resident of the 80-acre Elmwood Cemetery located in Memphis, Tennessee. I met him this morning while visiting the cemetery.

This cemetery is huge and I spent a couple of hours walking it and looking for interesting stones. There were a lot of them and some of my favorites are posted below.

Although Howard has lived in the cemetery for less than a year, I am sure he has seen a lot.
