There's so many stories, so many precious memories. I've thought that if I knew what I know now 31-years ago, would I have done the same thing. You're damn right I would; and she would too.
A year ago tonight, she was beginning to get really sick, and in so much pain. I think maybe she knew, but dummy me didn't have a clue that in just 5 short weeks she would be gone. Despite the pain, she wanted to go out anyway, and we did. Just to a local steakhouse. She gave me a brand new wedding band that night, as I had lost mine (the 3rd in 30-years by the way) at Mardi Gras the year before. That ring is still on my finger as I type this. Recently, I have been so troubled about what to do with it. I know there are no rules for this situation; they say when the time is right you will know it. I'll let you know tomorrow what my decision was.
The future of her rings was simple as she told me so many times they were to go to our grand-daughters and are tucked away in a safe until that time comes.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MY LOVE... I will never forget, and will always remember when...
Be Blessed my friends. My heart aches today but there's a happy song in there too, knowing that The Good Lord allowed me to share Dianna's life; and I continue to share it everyday though the bright eyes and smiles of my two sons, and two grand-daughters.

I am certain that many of you are already aware of Jim Ross' current health issues. If you haven't, you may click on this link an get an update from the man himself - Jim Ross Health Update
I consider JR to be a dear friend of mine, and I am very concerned for him, to say the least. Jim is without a doubt the top professional wrestling announcer in the industry; second only to the late Gordon Solie.
JR has always been there for me during my families' trial and tribulations through the years. I have been in contact with him, and I ask all of you folks that visit me here to remember my friend in your prayers. Knowing JR as I do he will be back before we know it.

We took the kids to the park, and to say that I had a great time watching them play would be an understatement. The photo above is Danielle, 19-months, playing peek-a-boo behind one of the pavillions in the park.

Ring legend Lester Welch, a member of the Fuller/Welch/Fields pro wrestling clan passed away on Friday. I was honored to be on the Board of Directors of our Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion with him, and worked on many of the events he promoted for Florida Championship Wrestling back in the day, as well as making so many shows in his airplane.
My sincere prayers and sympathies go out to his wonderful wife Lucille, his two sons Jack and Roy Lee, and all of his family.
The following is Lester's obituary from The Pensacola News Journal this morning:

Three years ago today, in 2006, my wife Dianna was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. We didn't have a clue that three short years later she would be gone. I cannot stress too much how important it is for you ladies to do your monthly exams, and get your mammograms. Guys... remind them! It can happen to anybody!

The Alabama Crimson Tide plays Florida International tonight at 6 pm at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Unfortunately it is on PPV, and as much as I enjoy The Tide, I can't justify a PPV buy on this one. However, I won't take Florida International lightly, as anybody can be beat any time by anybody.
Chris, the youngest son of Fritz and Doris Von Erich, passed away on this date in 1991. He was a damned good kid, and I still miss him dearly.
