This one is my favorite one. This is me and grandma in the Christmas sun all dressed up the day we said our vows. You can't tell it here but it was warm that December and that rose was red and her eyes were blue and just look at that smile I was so proud. Thats the story of our life right there in black and white.
And if it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other, you should've seen it in color.
A pictures worth a thousand words but you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered, you should have seen it in color.
HAPPY 30th ANNIVERSARY DIANNA !
We saw it in color...

Auburn fans will argue with me until they turn blue in the face, but what is happening at Alabama has caused Auburn to fire their head football coach. In what I would characterize as a knee jerk reaction to Alabama success under Nick Saban, Auburn has hit the panic button that dropped the floor out from under one of Auburn's most successful football coaches in their history.
Alabama, currently ranked No. 1 and headed to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta has always been the measuring stick for Auburn. Auburn cannot feel successful unless they are more successful than Alabama. With all the current success at Alabama, Auburn's troubles are magnified and have become unbearable for the powers that be at Auburn.
Auburn has had much success under Tuberville since his arrival 10 years ago. His domination of Alabama has endeared him to the Auburn faithful to the point of making him an idol. On the other hand, there is a faction of Auburn power-brokers that have never accepted Tuberville. Those people have been waiting for their chance to send Tuberville packing since 2003.
Tuberville was almost fired back in 2003 in the now famous "JetGate" episode. Many believe Tuberville beating Alabama that year saved his job. Tuberville with the support of the Alumni and the Auburn fan base forced these power-brokers to not only back off, but to capitulate. This included the resignation of the then Auburn Athletic Director David Housel.
It would appear that Auburn losing to Alabama 36-0 was the final nail in the coffin for Tuberville as Alabama continued to gain momentum under Saban. In my opinion, if Alabama was still struggling, Tommy Tuberville would have been given another year to right the ship. With the sudden success at Alabama, panic has set in down on the Plains of Auburn.
Tuberville will land on his feet because he is a capable coach. On the other hand, Auburn is in for hard times no matter who they roll out as their next head coach. Making a change will not fix the problem at Auburn, because the problem is not in Auburn. Auburn's problem is in Tuscaloosa and his name is Nick Saban.
Auburn cannot accept playing second fiddle to Alabama, and Alabama will be will be playing first fiddle under Nick Saban for the foreseeable future. So therein lies the conundrum. How do you keep up with the Joneses, when the Joneses now have Nick Saban working for them? The answer is you don't.

Yep... it was 'NO SHOW PERCY' last night in Meridian, Mississippi. I would like to apologize to the fans, promoter, and fellow wrestlers for my absence. The truth is that I was halfway there and received a call from my "real job" and had to turn around and take care of business. I can proudly say that that was the first time that I ever missed an independent show, and only one of a handful of events in all of my years in the industry. I'm sorry.
Speaking of my country music hero, George "The Possum" Jones, he will be receiving an award at The 31st Annual Kennedy Center Honors, on Sunday, December 7, 2008. Possum is 76-years old now, and still tours almost every weekend all around the globe. You can read about George's upcoming honors at:
I won't say that my ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE went to 11-0 last evening, defeating Mississippi State. Two more weeks until the big one... AUBURN.
