Graceland, 3764 Highway 51 South, Memphis, Tennessee.

 

 

Sometime in mid-December, Vernon and Dee flew to Idlewild Airport in New York to meet Priscilla Beaulieu, who was arriving on a flight from Germany. They would accompany her to Memphis, with her ticket reserved in the name of Priscilla Fisher. Elvis picked her up at his father's home on Hermitage Road so that he could show her Graceland for the first time himself, he drove her past the annual Christmas display on the lawn, that included the life-size Nativity scene.

Priscilla missed her first two days in Memphis because of the pills Elvis had given her to help her sleep on the first night. The rest of her vacation was spent seeing the places where Elvis grew up, roller-skating, attended movies at the Memphian, and dining out at Chenault's Drive-In.
