Make that dream come true guys beleive me you'll love it. I'm pleased we went while ther'e are people around who knew Elvis, to hear them talk about their times with Elvis really made it all the more special. There aren't many of them left that work around Graceland it's mostly young kids, don't get me wrong they are great to talk to but they don't have the connection like Donna and Wayne because it's so much more personal for them so get on over there as soon as you can [img]style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/default/king.gif[/img]
Thank you Pacer for your account of your trip to Graceland
Well, while reading what you related, I was remembering the same feelings I had when I went to in 2002, seems so far now, but I was thinking to myself "Yes that's what I've seen, What I've felt!"
As you did, I've been staying in front of the mansion, behind the wall, and I said to my friend to pinch me because I could not believe it was me beeing there after so many years while dreaming one day I could fly to Memphis, it was in a dark and quiet night when we arrived and we stand at the wall the first night before going to the hotel. Every one of us was thinking he had not enough eyes to see all of this! The trees lighted in different coulours, the porch and the columns pretty illuminate, I remember I thought that Elvis was still here and saying to me "Welcome to my world fellow"
We shared tears that night, and now at this time, I can't refrain from having a tear, it was a great moment in my life and I left a piece of my heart at Graceland.
