An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Is 10 hours in a car long enough? How do truck drivers do this every day? They’ve got my admiration, that’s for sure, but they don’t usually have a short person sitting right next to them, jabbering non-stop. The constant ‘what’, why’, ‘why not’ is enough to drive any extremely patient person up the wall, and I’m not all that patient.

We did make one stop, in Tupelo, MS. Yep, birthplace of Elvis. Why not! It wasn’t far off the highway, and I had to exit there anyway, even if it was in the opposite direction.


Impressed yet?

How ’bout this….


Uh huh, tiny room. Maybe this will do it…


Actually, I thought that was a pretty cool stove, but I sure wouldn’t want to cook on it. Shoot, if it doesn’t go in the microwave, I’m not sure if I’d know how to cook. :)

And here’s the outside….


No doubt about it, that’s a tiny house! And what was short person’s question? “Who is Elvis?” Oh well, at least she can say she’s been there. Maybe next trip I’ll take her to his REALLY tacky house…..Graceland. Honestly, I was more impressed with this one.

    Yesterday was all of 14 hours. Then another 30 min to finish up the paperwork. I’m tired. That house is just a little smaller than the one my Grandfather built in Louisiana in the 40′s… Homey, though…

    See Billiam, I just don’t know how ya do it. But then again, you’re a LOT younger. LOL

    Well, having an “Uncle Elvis”, I can’t imagine that she was serious. BTW, I didn’t throw her into Henderson Swamp, although, I was tempted. :)
