Let's Tour Graceland!

Hello, Dear Ones! I am in the middle of getting the items ready to put in my Jeep to drive to New York as you read this post but I thought you might enjoying touring Graceland with me. We took this trip in June and it was on my travel blog, You, Me and Little Kiki, but I thought you may like seeing it here. We all love a little Elvis so enjoy...

Okie dokie! This day was June 19, 2014 and I promised you a tour of Elvis' Graceland. Now I must tell you we were surprised as to the condition of Graceland. You know Elvis passed away in 1977 and I remember exactly where I was. We were taking a road trip with the children to New Orleans and of course we were listening to rock and roll on the radio and then the announcement came on that Elvis had died. Anyway, we thought Graceland would be a little dingy and run down. Nope! It was absolutely pristine! 1970s, on the inside, but pristine. I'll try not to talk too much and let you take the tour. I must say - I loved it!
I thought these lions were out of place and there should have been hound dogs flanking the entrance. What do you think! :) Okay, I'll shut up now.
Wait! Is that a flair range like Robin at Decorating Tennis Girl has?
 Had to snap in the mirrored stairway!
 Lisa Marie's play set.
 Oops! Sorry about the duplicate snap up there.
They told us this was where Elvis had been a few hours before he died - at the piano.
Well, this concludes our tour of Graceland. I really did enjoy myself. There was so much to see. We took a little van over to the house and toured it and the van brought us back. Then we walked around the shops and saw Elvis' cars and planes. I took a picture but it was blurry of the seat belts in his plane - they were gold plated!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

It's Now or Never

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I'd spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we'll meet again this way

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

~ sung by Elvis Presley
