    kovie, and you have the right foundation to build it. I don't know if I ever mentioned this to you or others, but you mentioned Graceland and did you know I knew Elvis when he was alive? Well, it's true. Only trouble is. . .he didn't know me! Ah well. Did see the lad, in Vegas, shake it up during his final years. The King still had it. Anyway, your comments probably tipped the scale given how a lot of readers are likely one of two things after digesting what you wrote: envious or planning to head out the door some day soon and replicate your travels (with a changed itinerary, of course) 15K miles and 35 states! That's impressive. Maybe we, as a community, can crowd source funds for you to buy a scanner, and then you'd have to scan those pics and posts a diary or two or three. HA! Thanks, as always, for your interesting comments, kovie.

      for toasted peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Except I make my own and don't get in a private jet for mine!

        and what he enjoyed eating. . .like those sandwiches. . .it is amazing his skin was so perfect that he didn't even need makeup, though of course when on stage that's necessary. I knew someone who met him (Buddy Allen), who, on one of my field institute trips, regaled us about the humanity side of Elvis, who, as it turns out, was a damn decent person in all respects.
