After viewing the exhibits, we shopped and stopped at all the different booths. I got to meet Sandi Pichon, a lady who met Elvis as a young girl and then again later in her life. She had written a book titled Raised on Elvis! Elvis! Elvis! I was able to get her book and get her autograph. Here is a picture of us together.
I also met Joe Petruccio who is the licensed EPE artist. He autographed one of his pictures for me. Here is our picture.
I also met DJ Fontana, Elvis's first drummer, and my parents bought his book to give me for my birthday and I was able to get him to autograph it.
Before we knew it, it was 6:00 and we had closed the Expo down. So, we all headed to Southaven to check into our hotel and grab some dinner. After dinner, we went to Graceland to hang out at the Plaza and shop there. We saw Joe Kent's show at the Rock 'n Roll Cafe - he was not really an Elvis impersonator but he did sing Elvis songs. The biggest thing that he had going for him was that he was really funny so Kerry, Karen and I had lots of good laughs. The show didn't end till about 12:45 a.m. so we headed back to the hotel after that.
Of course, once we got back to our room, we laughed and talked and looked at all of our new Elvis goodies!
