"When employees respect each other and get along in the workplace, it's amazing how productivity increases, morale increases and employees are more courteous to customers." ~ Maureen Wild
We concluded our inaugural tour of "Elvis Presley's Memphis" with ice-cream at Minnie Mae's. In my opinion, there's just something visually interesting about black and white checkered floors with accents of bold, bright colors!
Minnie Mae's at Elvis Presley's Memphis has it's own special peanut and banana flavored ice cream made by Prairie Farms; however, I requested one scoop of Strawberry (after discovering that they didn't sell Lemon Custard - my favorite). Upon receiving my order, I asked, "Is this ONE scoop?" The young lady behind the counter smiled and politely replied, "Yes, Ma'am." I then responded, "My goodness! What does "two scoops look like?" To which she replied, "A mountain." We both laughed!
"Minnie Mae Presley was Elvis’s grandmother and the mother of Vernon Presley (Elvis' father). Her husband Jessie deserted her in 1942, and after Elvis became wealthy, he gave her a home for the rest of his life. She even lived with Elvis during his army stint in Germany. Minnie Mae outlived her famous grandson, dying on May 8, 1980. Lamar Fike described Minnie Mae as a, “tough old bird. Tall, skinny, and peppery. Elvis called her ‘Dodger’ because he threw a ball once and it missed her face by a fraction of an inch.”
