Nov 11 to Nov 13
The evening of the 11th we went to the Dixieland Stampede, this is Dolly Partons place we had dinner and a show . Very similar to the Medieval jousting dinner and show in Vegas, we had to eat dinner with our hands and instead of jousting there was competition between the north and south, rodeo style and since now they are into the Christmas show it was north and south pole with Christmas carols, Santa, elves and the true meaning of Christmas all rolled into one evening show. Lots going on! It was good fun. The 12th we headed out again and made our way to Memphis by way of some smaller hwy through the Ozarks, pretty rolling mountain country. To day the 13th we went on yet another city tour and then had lunch down on Beale street, apparently the birth place of the blues and then spent five hours at Graceland, for all you Elvis fans that really was something to wander through "the kings" house unbelievable how many people are employed because of Elvis and his music. There is Elvis related stuff, stores and tours everywhere.
