The Slice

It's smaller than you'd think

Graceland, Elvis Presley's Tennessee home, opened for public tours on this date in 1982.

I lived in Memphis at the time and was in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. So that summer or maybe it was the next, I took the boy with whom I was spending Saturdays to check out the famous house.

I think he was bored. But as I recall, he was polite about it.

Have you been to Graceland?
