... 40 years ago.
We also got to see his two airplanes (one even had a bed in it - with a safety seat belt inbuilt as well), his car collection (including his pink Cadillac), a bunch of history and a giant collection of his clothes. There was one point in his career where he was doing 2 nights a week for 30 days. It's just insane. I have a whole new appreciation for his music now.

We drove back to the hotel to park, then walked to the Rock and Soul Museum. It was ...
I know I am getting into the spirit of the South when I find a tick on Oscar. I remove it, of course, but the only thing in reach to disinfect it with is bourbon and that will do just fine!
Feel like wearing tweed today. This morning was a slightly slower start than usual. Nothing to do with last night's bourbon, of course, that is pure coincidence. I also have some work to do and once I finish that, I decide to only drive to Memphis ...
