Our Warm Showers host in Memphis has two Basset (mostly) hounds, who licked me a lot.
Dan is a music prof at the University of Memphis, and played in the Orchestra for the live musical, Gypsy, so we got tickets and attended. Enjoyed it.
Went downtown one day and toured Sun Studio, which I liked.
All is original, and you could easily imagine Elvis, Cash, and all the others recording early Rock n Roll. Hokey, but I like that stuff. Check Sun Studio on the net for the amazing number of people who started there.
Carrie wanted to see the zoo, so we checked it out – well done. BBQ one night, and took Dan to a couple of restaurants he liked on other nights, so we got a taste of southern cooked pork.
Mainly we were tired and needed to rest. Dan was a great host, and we learned a lot about Memphis and music, and we felt at home. Which is why we like staying with Warm Showers. Thank you Dan Phillips.
