Week of August 11th...

A good Sunday evening to you my friends-
This is one of those weeks that marks the passing of several of my dear friends. The first part of my week is already spoken for, and I am afraid if I don't post tonight I may not have the time the rest of the week.

Tomorrow, Monday, August 11th, marks the first anniversary of the death of Bronko Lubich. Few knew his real name of 'Sandor Lupsity,' as the wrestling world called him Bronko. I became close friends with "Bronk" during my 6-years in Dallas. He was so proud of me when I was called to WWF/WWE. I miss him dearly.

Wednesday the 13th, will also be the first anniversary of the passing of Bryan Adams "Crush." Bryan was one fine gentleman in and out of the ring. My nickname for him was "pineapple' remembering his hawaiian roots. He was The Undertaker's best friend, because of that relationship I knew him well. Another that left us far too soon.

Saturday the 16th, will not only mark the day Elvis Presley died, it is also the day we lost "The Missing Link" Dewey Robertson. Yes indeed, it was a sad week last year, losing three friends within 6-days. We will never forget...
Before I forget, for my fellow Possum Fans, George Jones will be in my home area on October 19th, at The Imperial Palace Casino in Biloxi, MS at 9:00 pm. Save the date!

Some 30 years after he earned a country hit as the songwriter of George Jones’ "Bartender’s Blues," James Taylor is showing a continued affinity for the Possum by remaking George’s very first charted single, "Why Baby Why," for an upcoming album called "Covers." James' new album is being released on Sept. 30.

Possum George, has his own album on the way. Burn Your Playhouse Down: the unreleased duets comes out Aug. 19, loaded with guest performances. According to GEORGEJONES.com the tracks look like this:

1. YOU AND ME AND TIME with GEORGETTE JONES (Possum's Daughter)
2. THE WINDOW UP ABOVE with LEON RUSSELL
3. SHE ONCE LIVED HERE with RICKY SKAGGS
4. ROCKIN' YEARS with DOLLY PARTON
5. BURN YOUR PLAYHOUSE DOWN with KEITH RICHARDS

10. I ALWAYS GET LUCKY WITH YOU with MARK KNOPFLER

I wish you all a blessed week!
