Graceland En Route to St Louis & Back

Over the weekend we drove to St. Louis to celebrate my Uncle Greg and Aunt Margaret's 40-year-wedding anniversary. I haven't seen them in many years, and most of my relatives there had never met Gilgamesh. We had a great time. Here's the whole group with Greg and Margaret seated in the center:
Along the way we stopped in Memphis to see Graceland, Cape Girardeau to see the river mural, and then at the St. Louis Arch.
I had been to Graceland about 10 times before, mostly when I was in my 20's. I think it does a great job of representing America, for better or for worse. It's one of the few places I can hang out and feel pretty thin.
