Southaven, Mississippi – Day 5

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We will stay here while we explore the Memphis area for the next several days.

“I was afraid you would want to go!” We both said that to each other, at about the same time, as we discussed Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, less than five miles north of our parking location. Neither of us was interested in the several expensive tours where they shuttle tourists about like herds of cattle…and there was a herd of tourists taking those tours.

Instead we parked the Bronco and spent less than ten minutes taking photos along the street…

Since Mary had had acupuncture yesterday for her pain(s)…if you missed that Blog entry click this link…
we decided to have a low-key outing yesterday.

So, after Graceland, we drove the Bronco the about five miles to the National Ornamental Metal Museum. The only one of its kind in the United States devoted exclusively to the advancement of the art and craft of fine metalwork. You can read all about this place by clicking their official website link…

It proved to be a very interesting museum. I especially liked it because it also proved to be a place to do some “creative” photography. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Mary had a somewhat difficult night’s sleep and just said to me…I’m starting to feel a little better. I expect we’ll pick another low-key activity for today which you’ll get to read about tomorrow.

Enjoying interesting museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
