If you are a regular follower of my BLOG, you have certainly heard me mention our Annual Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion (GCWR), that we have each year here in my hometown of Mobile, Alabama. I am a member of The Board of Directors, and have been for many years. This year our gathering will take place this weekend, on Friday and Saturday, March 2nd and 3rd, at The Mobile International Speedway. This year will mark our 21st Reunion. Anything that lasts 21-years can't be all bad.
If you are not familiar with The GCWR, it is a professional convention of those of us involved in the professional wrestling industry. In order to attend, you MUST be involved in the business, or retired from the ring. Please understand that we treasure the support of our fans, however unlike our big brother The Cauliflower Alley Club, we do not allow fans to attend. This brotherhood is set aside soley for those of us that have dedicated our lives, and make/made our living from pro wrestling. New applications and members are screened at the door.
If you are involved in our industry or retired, please click on this link for an application: 2012 GCWR APPLICATION We invite you to make copies of the application for any of your friends that may be interested. I promise you, if you attend one time, you will be back. Just ask someone you know that has been here before.
I will be posting more information as we draw closer to the date, and any questions may be directed to me at: PercyPringle3@PercyPringle.com

For my non-Catholic friends today is Ash Wednesday, the day Lent begins. It occurs forty days before Good Friday. Actually, Ash Wednesday is its colloquial name. Its official name is the Day of Ashes. It is called Ash Wednesday because, being forty days before Good Friday, it always falls on a Wednesday and it is called Ash Wednesday because on that day at church the faithful have their foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross. I was blessed to be able to attend early mass this morning, and marked wih the ashes of my faith.
Have a wonderful day!

Today is MARDI GRAS DAY
"Laissez les bons temps rouler."
Let the good times roll!
I realize it may be difficult for you folks not from the Gulf Coast to understand what MARDI GRAS is all about. If you were'nt born and raised here, it is a tradition passed down from generation to generation. You can get more details by clicking on this link: MOBILE, ALABAMA MARDI GRAS
Many think that Mardi Gras began in New Orleans, how wrong they are. It all started right here in my hometown of Mobile, AL. Last night was our first major downtown parade, and the celebrations and parades run through MARDI GRAS DAY, which falls on February 21st, this year; always the day before Ash Wednesday.
A couple of nights I had the pleasure of taking my oldest granddaughter, a friend, and met up with a group of other friends at our favorite spot along the parade routes. My late wife Dianna, just treasured these days. I have so many fond memories of our MARDI GRAS celebrations through the years. She was indeed missed last night, but I could feel her there with us.
Take care my friends, and have a HAPPY MARDI GRAS 2012.
