When visiting Unadilla, Georgia we drove all around the quaint little town to see all the older classic homes and businesses. This three story wood Victorian classic house was just off of Main Street. I loved the corner tower and very tall chimney.

We are in Unadilla, Georgia looking around the cute downtown area. We have seen many semi trucks go by piled high in peanuts. Here in town we found the Farmer’s Peanut Company where they possibly sell and redistribute the peanuts. It’s fun to see what the local towns do in the economy.

Leaving Graceland

We are now leaving Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion and museum in Memphis, Tennessee. This is the last view we had of this beautiful place. We were not particularly fans of Elvis, but after visiting we are much more so. It is true that when you visit Memphis, you have to see Graceland. His mansion is impressive in that it is really a small place and down to Earth for such a big celebrity. Just think of the $25 million+ houses movie stars today have. This type house could be found on any nice street in the U.S.A. and only cost $100,000 when Elvis bought it. The airplanes and museum of course were added and never there at Graceland in Elvis’s time.

We are touring both of Elvis Presley’s jet airplanes near Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee at the museum there of all his artifacts. Now we are going into the larger plane and you see it has lots of room for tables and overstuffed chairs. In the next view you can seen the inside of the smaller Lear style jet, which is obviously much narrower.

When you are visiting Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee you have the choice (extra cost) of also see in both of Elvis Presley’s airplanes which are right there next to the museum. He had a large multi-engine jet (above) that had a bedroom, sitting room and many other rooms inside. Note the name “Lisa Marie”. He also had a smaller Lear type jet with four jet engines. (Below)

I love guitars and was hoping to see Elvis Presley’s famous guitars and I was not disappointed. We are wandering around the large museum complex that is next to Elvis’s Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.  One of his famous guitars Elvis played was displayed there in a glass case. I like the way his name is displayed down the neck in Mother of Pearl.  This is his Gibson Guitar and I have seen his leather covered Martin Guitar at the Martin Guitar factory.

At the Elvis Presley museum at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee they have an unusual display. It is Elvis’s firearm complete with his initial and turquoise grips. When looking at his cars they stop at the yellow Pantera and say it was very hard to start one day and Elvis got so frustrated that he shot it twice in the steering column. He had a few human characteristics.
