Well i had to get up early as the car was going to be towed to the garage to get the 2 tires fixed. Seeing my poor car being put onto the back of a truck broke my heart.This beast is should be on the road roaring to its next location not being carried to a garage.At least its getting fixed.

Now this is no lie but the bloke i spoke to at the garage the night before was called RANDY. I can now say i have met a Randy.Well Randy was not in today so his colleague helped me.Guess what? his name was CHIP... just leaves me a Brad, Chuck and a Ken now to meet.The tires were waiting there for me so in the pimp mobile went to be made better. This is when i got passed a message from Chip from National car hire.COULD I BRING THE OLD TIRES WITH ME !!!!! sorry say that again. Yep. i was to drive 4000 miles in a convertible with two 15" tires in my car. They are having a laugh. So i phoned them up and politely told them where they can keep the tires and it was not in my car.No they still wanted them. So once again i asked to speak to the manager. What it turned out was their arse is not talking to their elbow. They did not realize i was not paying for it so i could leave them behind.If i had to pay for them myself i had to take them with me. Right i could of tied them to the front of the car with a cows skull on the front and called myself MAD MAX...

Well with the car fixed i was on my way to Memphis to see if Elvis is working at the local drive-Thur. I have still not eating with that company but i have found a fantastic replacement. Its called Sonic Drive Thu. U pull up to a stall and there are about 20 of these stalls. You press the button and order your food. Then some dolly bird comes out on skates and delivers your order.GREAT !!! i have now got a good plan in action. I order my food realize i have want a drink and order a large iced coffee. So i get served twice by the roller girls. I do think we need something like this at home.

Now i said could today get any worse than yesterday.After all the car was fixed and i was only 10 miles out of Memphis and cruising at 85 MPH. Yep it could.FLASHING BLUE LIGHTS.. SHIT !!! Now i knew i could not out run them so i decided to hide between a line of trucks.Great right.NOPE !!! the bastards pulled out and left me a sitting duck. So i had to accept defeat and pull over. Out stepped the State highway patrol and in a typical drool asked for " your license and vehicle details sir " on came my best accent. Not working so far. Off he went to his car and i had to sit in mine. He then called me over where he was on the phone to his wife. How lucky am i . His wife his Irish and he asked me if i was from Northern Ireland. I explained no and told him how being ex forces we were never allowed to go over to Ireland.. But lady luck was on my side. He told me southern Ireland had saved me. He also asked where i was driving to. LA i said and he looked at me as if i had 2 heads." are you crazy" yep i am.. Well he let me of on the account of his wife and the fact that i am stupid to be driving all the way to LA. I am sooooo lucky...

Well i got into my hotel early so i decided to head towards Graceland and see if the KING was home. This is where i hit Memphis rush hour. It took me over a hour and a half to drive 18 miles and by the time i got there it was too late as the last tour starts at 4pm. SHIT!!!!!! so all i got was a few pictures of his airplanes and the sign for Graceland. This is why i am not doing sight seeing on this trip.Its to much hassle.

Well with nothing else to do i decided to go out and head towards the local Wall-Mart and have a walk round retail heaven. This is where i had the bright idea of dyeing my hair.Why not never dyed my hair before so as my hair is getting long  i thought lets go blonde. So after years of doing Hayley's hair i was an expert at dyeing so i decided on going Bright Blonde. At worse all it would do was go light brown.RIGHT !!!! nope it ended up like straw color with a hint of ginger in it.Hopefully in the morning it will look a bit better.after all it needs to settle down and sure a bit of water and gel it will look better..BLOODY HOPE SO!!! i don't want to be a GINGER!!!!
