IN BED WITH THE KING

I believe if I would have picked the man of my dreams ..it would have been Elvis.What a hunk of burning love.I think it was the hair.I just drool over men with Elvis hair.

In fact my first daughter was born on the same day that Elvis was having his only child.I decided right then and there whatever he named his child that would be her name.And so it was..Lisa Marie.Its a family joke among us,that she's so glad I wasn't a Frank Zappa fan..her name coulda been..Moon Unit..lol.

So my whole life I dreamed of seeing Graceland..to walk where the King walked,breathed,ate and slept.Everyone knew that.

I never take advantage of anyone..but once I did.But he had it coming..he owed me.

The second time I kicked my ex out..he was begging me to spend time with him..just talk..just give him the time of day,just anything I asked.So off the top of my head I told him I wanted to go to Graceland and I wasn't paying for nothing.Well,fat chance of that,he never had a dime.But lo and behold he must had of pawned everything he owned cause he showed up with a nice car and a pocketful of money and we was on our way to Graceland.My dream come true.

He done me right.He had us a room right across from Graceland.I could see the white gates right out our window.I was so excited I was about creaming in my jeans.

I'll spare ya all the details of the mansion..but I was kinda disappointed.That it wasn't all that.But I reckon it was in its day.

Later that day we toured the private plane Elvis had named after his daughter.It wasn't too big,but real nice and luxurious inside.In one part of the plane there was this big ole bed.Well..all of a sudden this urge came over me.I wanted to lay where the King laid.Right where Elvis put his sweet lil head.So I did.

Needless to say..Alarms and buzzers and red flashing lights went off everywhere and this big ass guard came from nowhere..."Woman!!..just what the hell do ya think you're doing???"

I propped myself up a little and ran my hands on the cover..smiled my big ole smile and happily said.."I wanted to lay where the King laid!"

Well he chucked a lil and said.."Your ass is gonna be laying in the jail if ya don't get off of there right quick!..See that sign right there??It says..DO NOT TOUCH DISPLAYS..That means anything..now get off the bed!"

That was the best part of my trip..I think I could still smell Elvis's brylcreem.

Where's the most unusual place ya all have ever seen or visited on a trip??

Have ya got arrested on a trip??

Where do ya wish ya could go??


When someone comes along,gonna give ya some love and affection,I say..Get it while ya can.

mz,

Not sure if this counts...in the area where I live, there are some ruins of some old houses called "The Insurrection Houses". This is where Nat Turner led a slave revolt prior to the Civil War. To this day, there are certain nights that, if you visit these ruins...strange things are heard, seen, and felt.

I've never been arrested on a trip...guess I always know where the back door is...*grins*

I've always wanted to go to Russia...don't ask why, but I would love to travel the country.

BTW...remind me to tell you a funny story about a friend of mine who visited Graceland....and got thrown out for doing a hysterical Elvis impression....the guards weren't impressed, however...

NG61...leaving behind a red rose tied in black silk ribbon....and fading back into the shadows.

This is so strange.
I never thought about it before, but I've hardly been anywhere[of importance], and can't think of anywhere that I'm dying to go.

The weirdest place I've ever been is the Winchester house. Lemee know if you need a paragraph (or five...) describing the place, and why it exists...

And if you ever really want a bizarre response from me, ask me who I really want to meet, and why...

I've never been arrested in my life. The most unusual place that I have ever been to would probably be The Mustang Ranch in Carson City, Nevada. It was a world famous legal brothel. I went there in the very early 90's. I had just received a visa credit card with a limit of $1500. It was like winning the lottery! I had an excellent time with one fine lady.

I would love to visit Hawaii. Australia. New Zealand. Or just travel the world!

I once got into trouble for trying out the lovely comfy seating in the House of Lords. the British Houses of Parliament. Not even a shuffle of my bottom on the rich red leather seat (so much better than the second-class green seats in the House of Commons, lol) before the gruff voice of police constable whatever-his-number was telling me off like I was a naughty little boy.

Moi? Naughty?

Evidently I have a most unworthy ass!

When I was 17 my dad took us to the Jack Daniels Distillery in Tennessee. Probably the coolest place I have ever been. When we went into the cave where they get the water to make the liquor I took a piece of rock as a memento which I still have to this day.

Loved the post, Mz,Huny, you say it so well.

I've never really been anywhere that I considered interesting, maybe except going on a school trip at the age of twelve to Yugoslavia.

1)The Mayan ruins at Tulum Mexico. We took a private tour with a native guide who was a student of Mayan culture. She brought the city to life with her stories and narration.
2) The Arenal Volcano in Costa and the Tabacon Hot Springs. Hotel facing the volcano. At night the glow of the lava flowing down this active volcano is eerie and awesome. The hot springs are incredible-take the mud bath.

the weirdest place i've ever been was in a town called kutna hora about 45 minutes from prague. there is this old church there, where sometime centuries ago, someone brought some soil from the garden of gethsame, so after that lots of people wanted to be buried in that church yard. when the church yard would get full, they'd dig up the old bodies and put the bones in the church. at the end of the 1800s a carpenter came along and found all these bones and decided to make "sculptures" out of them... he turned the human bones into chandeliers, coats of arms, etc etc.

yeah i know its macabre, but i just had to see it with my own eyes!

(o, i've never been arrested on a trip, but my husband did get fined cos they have this bizarre rule in prague that you must sign your name on the back of the train ticket, which we didn't know, so they fined us!)

Good story, MzHuny! I've never made the pilgrimage to Graceland even though Memphis is only about 3 hours away from where I live.

I remember the Wall Drug Store near the Badlands of South Dakota. That is an unusual place out in the middle of nowhere. It grew up to be a huge tourist attraction because they gave away free ice water to thirsty travelers who were about to enter the Badlands.

Never been arrested on a trip, although I did have a minor car wreck one time. I was talkin' to my Dad on the passenger side and not paying attention to my drivin'. Got it all settled and continued on.

If I win the lottery, I will go everywhere. Traveling is one of the best things we can do in life. So many memories. So much of God's world to see!

That was a great story! I can't think of a most unusual place I've visited. However, I did drive across country back in 1989 with my husband...Boston to Florida and then to California. I love driving through the different states and just stopping here and there to look at the sights and eat in funky restaurants. I would love to do that again.
I would still like to see the Grand Canyon. There are so many things to see right here in America. Every state has history and interesting things in it. I've never been to Europe..someday I would love to visit Western Europe and tour all the countries there.

NightGuy's comment reminded me of a trip I had always dreamed about. This will be a somewhat lengthy dissertation but it involves my dream trip AND and my arrest and detention for suspected something or other.

I was in the Navy for 22 years and my job for the whole career was in what the Navy refers to as a highly sensitive specialty. Let's just say that I got the opportunity to experience regular polygraph exams, regular substance abuse testing, and my friends, neighbors and family got the opportunity to meet nice FBI agents who liked to chat about me. Part of the regular security debriefings that I did with the Navy was that I agreed that I would not travel in certain areas of the world where the knowledge and experience that I had would be in jeopardy... you get the picture, Russia was not on my list of approved vacation destinations. I have traveled all over the world but many areas were off-limits and I never for a moment thought I would ever be able to see the Soviet Union.

Last summer I received a call from an individual in a very powerful US federal agency. He asked if I was interested in helping them with a project in Georgia. I said, without stopping a moment to consider, "sure, I'd love to visit Atlanta. He chuckled and said, "no, I'm talking about Tbilisi, in the Republic of Georgia". I agreed to go and we discussed this venture back and forth over the next 6 weeks. In late October 2005 myself and one other gentlemen from Virgina set off for the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Not my first choice for a Russian tour, but the feds were paying my way.

Once in Tbilisi I worked out of an office in the US Embassy so I was in and out of the embassy compound several times each day. It was a fascinating place, really exciting to see how the Department of State does it's work overseas. US Marines guard the inside of the compound and Georgian security is responsible for the outside perimeters. One afternoon, I decided to take a walk to take some pictures. I walked the several blocks from my hotel and ended up about two blocks from the US Embassy. I could see the concrete vehicle barriers, the fences with the barbed wire... and the guards with their Kalashnikov automatic weapons. I thought, what a nice picture to show my wife and family. So, from 2 blocks away I raised my camera to compose a shot and before I could push the shutter button there were two men who grabbed me by the arms and snatched the camera from my hands. For a moment I thought I was being robbed, it was a brand new Canon Digital camera that set me back over $1100 USD. THEN my mind flashed back to the Area Clearance message I received from the State Department and I recalled their warning about potential kidnappings for ransom and I just about s**t my pants. IT soon became clear that theses guys weren't crooks or kidnappers, they wanted to know what I was taking a picture of. I told them that I wanted a picture of MY embassy and they said that is NOT PERMITTED. I was whisked away to a small sedan where I was frisked and interrogated and I got the opportunity to see several of the Kalashnikov's up much closer. They went through EVERY image on my 1GB memory card just to make sure I hadn't taken any unapproved pictures, AND they took my passport. It took about two hours until a US State Department official came out with the list of approved visitors, and there was my name... on the list of individuals with approved access to, not only the Embassy but to the inner sanctums of the US Embassy. The rest was pretty quick, the men who apprehended me gave me back my camera and my passport, nobody apologized, they just released me.

The next morning I bought a bunch of postcards from a street vendor that showed many views of the US Embassy. My "sponsor" at the embassy said that the local security was VERY touchy about people around the embassy. Where I was apprehended was less than a mile from the plaza where, in May of 2005, someone threw a hand grenade at George W. Bush as he addressed a crown of adoring (or not) Georgians.

I learned a valuable lesson. When I go back to Georgia (I have been invited back by the Georgia government and the US Department of State) I will go with a diplomatic passport... and a more concealable camera.

See, I said it was a long story but it has a little of the excitement of Mission Impossible III.

Wher was the most unusually place I've been on a trip? Mars, I thnk, but that was some REALLY good shit. Viet Nam maybe, but that wasn't by choice. The UK was nice, I love Canada (except for the french part), and have had a long love affair with the Atlantic coast and all of Florida, especially key West.

I still want to visit Amsterdam and Jamaica, and will get to both of them eventually. Other than that, no desire to travle anywhere specifically. If I can't carry my weapons and smoke weed, I have no desire to got there.

Have I ever been arrested on a trip? Surprisingly no. I learned a LONG time ago NEVER to get into discussions with local cops. Joe

As a young newlywed, I moved to Naples Italy with my husband. Now, I was not only naive...but fresh out of Ohio. So, Italian men were a completely new experience for me. They feel that they are irresistable to women...and they try to seduce you at every opportunity. So, a girlfriend and I were on a train to go to a marketplace a couple of hours away from us and two Italian men were sitting across from us....face to face. They chattered away in Italian...pointed at us...smiled...blew kisses...and made other gestures, including grabbing their crotches. So my girlfriend and I just chatted in English and kind of made fun of them...."they think they're so sexy"...."look at them stroking themselves". And I had one of those fold up umbrellas with me, and I made that stroking gesture on the umbrella. When our stop came and we stood up to leave, one of the men stood and kissed my hand, and in PERFECT English told us to have a lovely day. Well, needless to say, we literally ran off of that train embarrassed that we could have been so silly and stupid. But we sure did laugh.

But I've never been to Graceland.

The coolest place I've ever been? Hmmm... I'd probably have to say Chichen Itza in Mexico (Mayan Ruins). It was beautiful! We went there on our honeymoon (exhusband) and it was a great trip (but, it would've been cooler if my husband wasn't there! lol)

I've also been to Graceland. It was cool, we had fun. But, I thought the decorum of the house was a bit gawdy. But, like you said, it was probably very "modern" for those days.

I'm glad you had fun there! And, that you got something good out of your ex! lol
Kisses, Huny!!!

I've been in a lot of places, and it's hard to pick out the most unusual.

Perhaps the time I was in a snake temple in Malaysia. There were dozens of live, highly poisonous pit vipers lying around a room, kept sedated (I assume) by burning incense. You could get your picture taken with a dozen or so pit vipers hanging around your neck. I declined that opportunity, but I did walk into the room with all the snakes.

Never been arrested, but I had an interesting time in Germany once while riding my motorcycle. I was riding on a tour, along a route that took me over a curvy road with a LOT of traffic on it. It was on a weekend, and the road was very crowded. It was the main route from where I started that day to the town we were staying in the next night, and any other route was 100 miles longer.

So I'm driving along, my wife on the back, and a tour buddy following. We're driving extremely conservative, like an American tourist. (Meaning I wasn't passing any cars). There were all these little signs with a motorcycle inside a ban symbol, but I thought they were saying not to leave the road on the little gravel side roads.

I came around a corner, and there was a guy on a BMW touring bike. Oddly enough, he was the only other motorcyclist we'd seen there. He was pulled off on a little pullout. As we putted by, he pulled out behind us.

A short while later, he zoomed past us, pulled in front of me, and the little BMW emblem on the back part of his bike suddenly popped up on a hinge. There was a red flashing light and POLIZEI written there! He pointed at an overlook and we all pulled off.

He got off the bike, and asked us something in German. We replied in English that we didn't understand, and he switched to English. Asked us for our licenses. We gave him out International Driver's Licenses, which are nothing more than translations of your local licenses.

He pointed out that we were driving on a road that was marked with many signs banning motorcycles on the weekends. (Too dangerous, with all that traffic). We explained that we did not understand those signs. He looked completely exasperated, and pointed to our driver's licenses - "But you *must* understand. You have these!"

He let us go, and in fact had us go on the way we were going, because it was shorted (therefore safer) to go on than to turn back.

I want to go to graceland. but it's more bcuz all my family loves elvis. i'm not really into him myself. But i'm probably the only person in my family that WOULD go. (nobody else would get on a plane).

I want to go to Maldives too. I have an internet friend there... he sent me a calendar, t'shirt, and postcards. It's... absolutely stunning. and i'm told very very affordable.

This should be my 500th post (already!). You get the honor, since I've probably posted more comments to your blog than any other.

I went to Graceland Elementary School from middle of third grade through end of sixth grade. It's about 1/2 mile east of the mansion. Yes, this was when Elvis was still alive. The last map I saw identified it as a Junior High.

Probably the most unusual place I've been is the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center, where they assemble the Space Shuttle prior to launch, and used to assemble the Apollo/Saturn V stacks way back when. I was working on the Space Station at that time, and we "borrowed" the crew that does plumbing modifications on the Shuttles to do some work on the Station.

Someday I'd like to go to Hawaii, partly for the scenery but mainly to pay my respects to the many people for whom Paradise became Hell one Sunday morning many years ago. There's a memorial that sits above the remains of the USS Arizona. They've also now got the USS Missouri moored down the line, as a memorial to the end of the war.

Can't quiet answer that because until I got with Mr. Bambi traveling was not an option.

I am glad that you got to live out one of your dreams though.

I am asking for a prayer for Mr.Bambi.His dad passed away Friday and the worst part is that I am still sick and probably will not be able to fly and attend the funeral services with him when he needs me the most.

So right now I feel like shit.

MZHUNY,

How many other people can say they have done that. Live within easy driving range of Graceland and have never been in. Been by there but just never made it past the gates. Will someday. My mother is a HUGE Elvis fan and need to take her this summer. We were going in Feb on her birthday but something came up. The most fun place I have ever traveled to is Darwin, Australia. What a place! Gotta love the women there (well I do). The most disturbing place I have ever visited is chop chop square in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Not a site any American would like to see. They are serious about crime over there or they were in '91.

Great post, MzHuny.

I have had a few chances to travel overseas. Spain was nifty. Great food, nice climate. Certain areas would be much more interesting now, because I was just a high school student on a huge group tour.

I have spent some time in Mexico for work, and I liked that, too. I remember going to the top of La Montaña del Cristo Rey (Christ the King Mountain). There is a monastery built at the top of this mountina, and there is a huge sculpture of Jesus (one of the tallest in the world) on top. There was an evening mass going on while we were there, and although I'm not Catholic it was a powerful experience. We saw a gorgeous sunset on the way down the mountain that night, too.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

MzHuny ... I have been to Graceland ... not once ... not twice ... not three times ... but four. Still have ticket stubbs. We have lots of pics of everything. We lived about 5 miles from Graceland for a year. The grounds are beautiful at Christmas time. But, to me, the place has an eerie quality. And, Elvis Presley Boulevard (EP is not the place you want to travel in January (his birth month) or August (anniversary of his death).

Haven't been anywhere else that I'd consider wierd. I'd love to see the tower of London once.

Emmmm-well not unusual-but I love the east coast Of North Carolina-Duck-Corolla-Nags Head-Kitty Hawk all the way down to Morehead and Emerald Isle-that's what I love about living not too far from the ocean or the sound.
Now-I would love to see Maine-California-Mexico-England-France-Spain-Canada-Massachusetts-New York-Australia-Hawaii-gee probably more and not necessarily in that order.

I have always lived a rather small life compared to most, I guess. I have always counted the important things in a different way than most. Though I have been on a few trips here and there, I haven't been anywhere that my heart has been set on going. Probably never will. I am fairly content with things.
Unless someone wants to take me to meet Viggo Mortensen. Or maybe Johnny Depp. How about George Clooney? *sigh*

PENIS CHARMING....where are you?

Oddly enough I had the feeling I might just get arrested in a dream I just had this afternoon. Taking things I apparently should not have, and while on a trip to the tropics as well.... for me it would be a pilgrimage to Strawberry Fields for John Lennon. Twice I've been and once blogged about Dallas. But, over the past 10yrs, Graceland has called to me again and again and again.... maybe this year. I am so proud of you for jumping on the Kings Bed! Well done MsHuny!!!!!!

The oddest place I have ever been was practically in my back yard when I was a kid. There was a very very old graveyard in my neighborhood, most tombstones were dated in the 1800's. The place was very overgrown since it had not seen a grounds keeper in many years.
There was also an abandoned house on the property, presumably was lived in by someone attached to the property.

Any way we used to hang around up there, doing the things that kids did in such places...Smoke and drink and party

I have never been arrested thank goodness, and hope never to be in that boat...

As to going somewhere, I would love to go where the beaches are white and the water is blue. That day may come however, this summer I am going to Paris France.....

The called Elvis "The King" for a reason!

Hmmm.... Most unusual place? I don't know. I've been to some interesting places. The Winchester House was a bit odd, but I loved the story behind it. I remember driving from Las Vegas to Seattle one summer, and happening upon a ghost town somewhere outside of Tonopah, Nevada. There really wasn't much left of this place, but I do remember a "bottle house" - it was made out of old glass bottles. Apparently a movie had been shot there in the 30s or something. What I remember most about this ghost town, though, are all the statues/art. Some group of artists had chosen this location to display their works. It struck me as a very odd place to hold an exhibit...

I've never been arrested - on a trip or otherwise.

I wish I could go many places! I'd love to go back to Yellowstone or Yosemite National Parks. I'm long overdue for a trip to Vegas. I've never been overseas and would love to see practically everything over there...

it is sad to think you truly
would think the man of your dreams
is a corpse, elvis lived a long time ago
he is cold and dead now like ol layne
trust me, there is one that will
rock your world

Smiling as I read about your dream coming. How wonderful.

Well let's see. I guess the worst that's happened on a trip for me is getting a speeding ticket..driving through Indiana. Speed limit was 55..I was going 70. I didn't argue with the man. He caught me..red handed.

Oh well..I never did pay the ticket. I just made it a point to steer clear of Indiana for awhile.

Two I'll mention...both very tame trips but very interesting for me. The Sears Tower in Chicago and the Aztec pyramids in Mexico are both very memorable places I've visited.

First of all - Elvis is a damn good choice.

Secondly - I don't have any dream trip, if I did I would just go on it. But then that's what I'm like - never not gone somewhere I wanted to go and never not done something I really wanted to do.

Best, T

gettysburg battlefield... during the civil war my family was almost wiped out there in picket's charge and the feelings i felt there were so palpable, haunting and chilling. it was way cool!

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

Most unusual place i've been on a trip is House on the Rock in Wisconsin. Definately different, definately intriguing.

I've never been arrested but got a ticket one night for walking out of a bar with draft beer and as soon as we got out on the road got pulled over.I think that was caused by the young and dumb sydrome.

Place to go?? Take my sweetheart to the Poconos
