Saturday Reflections

Like many of you, I have been watching some of the televised services this morning for Ted Kennedy. I have always been a Kennedy fan, especially for JFK. I was 9-years old when he was assassinated, and it was a life moving moment that I will never forget. I have no doubts that JFK's death played a part in me wanting to become a funeral director. My brother died of brain cancer too, so I know what they have been going through.
What a fine night I had with The Possum. From beginning to end, it was all good. I got there early, so I sat through sound check. The had a couple of cocktails and dinner, and played the slots until about an hour before showtime; even won $200. He debuted two new songs that will be on his new album that will go on sale Tuesday at Cracker Barrell.
We have a Board of Directors meeting for our annual Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion this afternoon. This will be our first planning meeting of the year. Our reunion this year will be on March 5th and 6th. If you are new here, our reunion is not a fanfest, and open only to those currently in the business or retired. I will be talking more about it and will make applications available in the coming weeks.

Be Blessed.

Anybody that knows me knows what a fan I am of George "The Possum" Jones. George returns to the Gulf Coast tonight, and guess where I will be? *Right answer...

It been awhile since I've visited with my longtime friends. I haven't had too much to get excited about the past 7-months, but I am excited today. This is something that Dianna and I shared the entire 30+ years of our marriage, as she loved The Jones Boys as much as I do and they loved her.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Be Blessed.

Sunday evening thoughts...

A good Sunday evening to you my friends. I hope you all have enjoyed a wonderful weekend.

It's been awhile since I've posted here, and I apologize. All I can say is that "It bees that way sometimes... have mercy". LOL Thank you King Parsons. :-)

I want to start by wishing you all a Happy Possum Week. Yes indeed it is that time again, George Jones is returning to the area this Friday night and here's one of his all time greats in anxious anticipation.

I want to say that if you enjoy wrestling books you must check out Gary Hart's recent autobiography. I've read them all, and it is without a doubt in my top three. Check it out at: http://www.playboygaryhart.com/

Have a great week!
Be Blessed.

20-years Ago Today...

On this date in 1989, "Flamboyant" Eric Embry and myself tore the World Class Wrestling banner down from the walls of the World Famous Dallas Sportatorium.

That night ranks at the top of the list of the most emotional moments during my 30+ years in professional wrestling.

Be Blessed.
