ROAD TRIP: Pt 3 – In Memphis, TN

We spent the night in Memphis, TN at our Mom’s house. We woke up the next day and began the Family Hello Tour. It first started with seeing our other grandmother, Mimi. She just moved into a new house so we headed over there. It was really nice to see Mimi since I haven’t seen here in almost 4 years. We also got to see her dog, Duke, he is a Doberman pincher.

  

After seeing Mimi, I wanted to stop by and see my elementary school and high school (8th – 10th grade). I remember running around in the elementary school yard and hanging with friends in high school. So it was kind of sad to see that they were pretty worn down.

After seeing our old schools, we headed to our Uncle John’s house; he is our mom’s brother. We hung out with Uncle John and Hillary (his daughter) plus his new girlfriend and her son. It was so nice to see Uncle John. I always like seeing him beat up on Kenny a little. He is a Shelby County Deputy Sheriff and has his own fencing company. We ended up being there for about an hour.

 

 

After Uncle John’s house we headed to Downtown Memphis. I really wanted to eat at the Rendezvous, a great real bar-b-que place. I had a full rack of ribs (they only make them dry, the best way to make ribs). Check out what they look like.

Rendezvous was so good, I had never been there before.

  

Since we were in Downtown Memphis we ended up heading over to The Peabody Hotel” and Peabody Place.

 

The Peabody Hotel is a really nice hotel. They have these famous ducks that are in the lobby and they live in the penthouse at the hotel. We used to see the ducks all the time when we were younger and lived in Memphis.

  

Peabody Place is an extension of the hotel. We went and saw “National Treasure 2” over there. We had about 45 mins before the movie so we walked around. This used to be “the place” to hang out and now it was kind of shabby looking, most of the cool places had moved out and it was just not the same as it used to be.

 

 

“National Treasure: The Book of Secrets” was really good. I particularly liked it because it had to do with the Presidency and who killed Abraham Lincoln.

 

After the movie we headed back to moms and went to bed.
