Bernard Lansky is quite a character, sharp as a scalpel.
We met him a few times in his store, in the Peabody Hotel, where he kindly signed the photo of himself for us.

Elvis fans are always welcomed and if he is not too busy he will spend time discussing and remembering Elvis.

Thanks guitarplayer, Be sure to purchase something from Bernard, or his son, and you are on a winner.

We first met Bernard Lansky in 1997 when he signed a brochure for us........without us requesting it.
We met him again in September 1999.... and June 2002.

Did you see the ducks? Now you can call the ducks unimportant ...BUT.... the store is right by the ducks AND as a small child Elvis did call water "DUCKLING". HMMM... coincidental? You decide.

guitarplayer, Yes 5 long transatlantic flights to Boston, New Jersey or Chicago for onward flights to Memphis. Also New York and Washington DC.

We have crossed the Irish sea by air and boat maybe 50 times :-)

Complicated, Yes the Marching ducks at the famous Peabody Hotel are fun!
