Country music fans the world over, are now saying a deeply heart-felt goodbye to the one and only…..George Jones. And while they may not realize it…they’re exercising a deeply-felt emotion in futility…for “George Jones” will never die…and as time takes the human race ever closer to eternity,” George (the Possum) Jones” will live beyond forever in the souls of all who have been touched by his music!!! Sincerely, Ira Allen

Oh my gosh! Buddy Mize called & told Ira to go to E-Bay – that one of his 45′s was being bid on and was up to $685.55 with more hours to bid. It apparently is from an estate sale. It is soooo exciting. It tells that “Ira is listed in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame for his self-penned song “Nursery Rock” in 1958″ on Mav-Rick label, produced by Dusty Rhodes. The bidding started at $5.00 . We want to say thanks to the fans who are bidding it and for keeping his music alive!!!!!! See a couple of the postings of bids & record on Ira’s photos. There were 24 bids in all. The FINAL BID was $985.45).. I tried to catch it but at the last second – it faded off the screen… anyway… WHAT A DAY!
