Thanks for the link to that great site RR!!!
I didn't realize so many pictures were taken of that meeting.
Also, the memorandum for the President following the meeting is an interesting read.
I'd never seen that before.

Thanks again!

Carolyn,

I have been to Graceland at several different times of the year, and one of my favorite trips was one I took in mid-September, 1996. There is little traffic and congestion, and lots of time to really enjoy the exhibits. In fact, it was during that trip at which I took the morning walk up to the Meditation Garden and found myself alone at Elvis's grave for about fifteen minutes. That was a great experience.

I enjoy the hustle and bustle of Tribute Week, too, but every now and then it is nice to lean back and relax.
