Our last day found us traveling north on I-55 headed toward home. We enjoyed our trip and were a little sad that it was about to end when we drove by the Pink Elephant Antique Mall. We quickly got off at the next exit and backtracked down Route 66 to check it out. It was a Roadside America dream!
Whenever possible, John and Donna eat at a restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives or Man Vs. Food. Yesterday afternoon they ate at Iron Barley, a restaurant that appeared on both shows. Wow!
Yes, they took the Man Vs. Food challenge and ordered a “Monte Christo Double Dog.”

We had a wonderful time at Pinocchio’s: The Children’s Bookplace. We were greeted with a charming house packed with children’s literature. One of the co-owners greeted us and chatted with us as we browsed. Her knowledge and love of children’s literature was obvious as she led us around pointing out favorite books. This is the type of bookstore we would have loved as children. It was full of enticing titles and was difficult to leave. Graceland is one of Memphis’ top attractions, but Pinocchio’s: The Children’s Bookplace should be as well.
