Since 2005, and over 800 entries, the orginal purpose of this BLOG has never changed. I consider it to be a personal letter from me to my extended family of fans, supporters, and friends. I ALWAYS encourage your emails, comments, suggestions, and questions. Be Blessed! ~Percy

It's been a very long week...

A long week indeed, as my little brother Harry "Bubba" spends his third week in the hospital. The photo above shows the young Moody Brothers sitting high above the moon. Below, "Bubba" carves the turkey at one our Family gatherings.
Frequent visitors here are aware of "Bubba's" valiant fight with cancer. I continue to receive encouraging emails and prayers each and every day; for that our Family thanks you again. It seems each time his physicians resolve one issue, another pops up. He is having a very hard time right now, but our faith remains strong as our Dear Lord keeps him in the palms of his healing hands.

Last Friday night, July 7th, I enjoyed participating in a great wrestling "Night of Legends" event in Batesville, Mississippi; promoted by All Pro Championship Wrestling. I got to manage my 'ol friend Kamala against Mr. Hughes, and also manage a team against Jerry Lawler and Brian Christopher. Also on the card were Don Bass, Dusty Wolfe, Porkchop Cash, Peggy Lee Leather, Bambi, Tommy Rich, Bill Dundee, Doug Gilbert, Robert Gibson, Brickhouse Brown, Jimmy Valiant, and so many more.
Then on Sunday, July 9th, I promoted my GULF SOUTH WRESTLING event here in Mobile. The photo above shows "Percy The Promoter" telling my wayward cousin "Marvelous" Marcel Pringle that he had to ride the mechanical bull after losing a match with The Armstrong Family. We had a fabulous event, that was well attended by several hundred fans. You can click on the blue hyperlink above, and check out some more great photos and details from the show.
Wednesday July 12th, was a sad day as I remebered my friend Jimmy Miranda. Jimmy handled "live event" merchandising for WWF/WWE for many years. He passed away on July 12, 2002. I snapped the picture above in one of the dressing rooms as Jimmy, Kane, and Gold Dust did a bit of horsing around. Gosh... I miss those days.
Yesterday July 14th, was my friend Jeff Jarrett's birthday. I've known Jeff for so many years, and I am so proud of what he is doing these days.
On another sad note, tomorrow July 16th will mark the anniversary of the deaths of two more dear friends. Bruiser Brody (above) and Terry "Bam-Bam" Gordy (below) died on July 16th. Bruiser in 1988, and Terry in 2001.
I wish you all a very good weekend!
God Bless!
