Cut My Lawn

26April2021

I want to thank my readers and subscribers for visiting the DELERY GAZETTE to read a little bit. There are some things in the news that I want to touch upon. I will add to this article as I write my thoughts on some of those issues. I want to write about the Academy Awards which everyone is chiming in on. While I am waiting on the NFL draft on April 29 I have been watching some volley ball.

the players themselves… had fun

Now, here are some of the Scrolls that I am writing in my “Captain’s Log” from my desk. I posted them here raw and just like I wrote them. If you have questions you can ask them in the comments box at the bottom of the post. Thank you!

These are some of my recent Scrolls for my next book:

These Scrolls which I originally wrote in my Captain’s Log at my desk are now more-or-less rough drafts of what I want to enter into my book. I will do much editing and cutting before they are “book ready.”

I surely do not want to watch the PELS lose the lead and lose another game. My opinion: the PELS will not make the PLAY IN. They lose too many huge leads to lose the game in the end.

Note Early Years

Seeing this yearbook picture brought back many memories. I am at the top, left. Once I hit college, I grew my hair longer and was like a run-away freight train on the loose. All of the many pretty girls at the U. of New Orleans drove me crazy. I heard my dad tell his friends on several occasions, “That boy better slow down with those girls before he hurts himself.” Now-a-days in the twilight years of my life, I lie down in bed at night racked with guilt. I want to say that I am sorry. It was not until I was older that I learned that you are supposed to save yourself for marriage. No one ever told me that the Church commands us to avoid pre-marital shenanigans. Who knew? I cry in bed at night sometimes wanting to say, “I am sorry…” to all of God’s sweet creatures who put their hearts into my hands.

When I was in high school I was more serious and reserved. The only thing the same now is my music. I changed 180 degrees after I took drama and speech electives at the U. of New Orleans. I was in some plays, and more-or-less chaged. Yes, I obtained a sense of comedy.

My senior yearbook.

Seeing my senior picture also reminded me that I wake up at night sometimes in a cold sweat wishing to God that I could express my sincere “mea culpas” to the women. MEA MAXIMA CULPA, as the Catholic repentance goes! Maybe in heaven I will be able to have my apologies reach the right ears. In the Old Testament they did penance with ashes covering their brows and wearing torn garments. FORGIVE ME, WOMEN OF THE WORLD!!!… for I know not what I do!

I guarantee you that James Franco could successfully play James Dean in a bio pic (if he has not already done so). I just flipped to the movie GIANT from 1956 and James Dean looks just like Franco.

Question, A RETWEET: When it comes to women, what would I prefer? A teenie bit of #romance, and a pocket full of #money; or hot romance, and my money flying out of my pockets willie-nillie? My answer…

Drewwwwww!!

Less Butter

Someone told me to start using spray butter sometimes instead of the sticks. Why? I will then eat less butter, and lose unnecessary weight.

Spray butter means less weight.

Marvelous are your (the Lord’s) works. And That my soul knows full well. Psalm 139:14

When did the Lord first speak to me?

I am praying for Kim to have a blessed recovery from her marital woes. I heard that Kanye moved out on her, and that is why she filed for divorce.

DONALD H. TRUMP is up to his old tricks:

George Armstrong Custer lost his life and everyone’s life in his battalion of the 7th Cavalry at Little Bighorn because he wanted only himself and his troops to attack Sitting Bull’s village. Why? In order to capture young Native girls for his carnal pleasure for the journey back East.

In his previous mission Custer killed everyone in the village except 17 young Native girls whom he dragged back East to rape and to share his tent during the march. All Companies of the 7th Cavalry were supposed to rendezvous at Little Bighorn before attacking, but Custer disobeyed orders because of lust for the Native girls and personal glory. Custer’s body was found with an arrow shoved up his penis which the U.S. Army did not reveal to his wife.

George Armstrong Custer

Hey, y’all, I am having fun filling out my March Madness bracket. I have #8-seed LSU and #2-seed BAMA winning in the 1st Round. I even have BAMA going to the Sweet Sixteen… maybe even the Elite Eight. Some experts think that BAMA will make the Final Four. Once I fill in all the slots on my Times-Picayune sheet, I will go online to finish my online bracket, and maybe win the $millions or a car or a trip. Who Knows? However, most likely not!

I am doing my bracket

Here is the schedule:

This video (below) is too funny. Just like a cat. It is almost amazing how typical it acts.

Sitting Wolf

My Indian name is Sitting Wolf. I have little or no Indian blood in me, but I had some French-Cajun ancestors who fought with Sitting Bull at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. They wore their Mardi Gras Indian costumes and blended in with the Native Indians. My ancestors were angry about how the Yankees were carpetbagging in Louisiana after the Civil War. The name Sitting Wolf passed down to me similarly to what I explained in my article at DeleryGazette.com entitled King Farouk III. https://delerygazette.org/2020/11/02/king-farouk-iii/

About my ascendency to the throne of the ancient King Farouk Dynasty which I explain in the article, I succeeded Fuad II who was the ninth mystical ruler of the ancient Muhammad Ali Dynasty and am in the lineage of the penultimate King of Mount Zion on the Caribbean Sea.

Sitting Wolf

Sitting Bull posing below with Buffalo Bill, 1885

Buffalo Bill, known for his Wild West Show that featured Native American men and women, struck a partnership with Sitting Bull in 1885 when Sitting Bull performed on his show for several months. Sitting Bull lead his people against the US government at the Battle of Little Bighorn (among other battles).

Sitting Bill and Wild Bill

After he left Bill’s show, the two remained friends that lasted until the end of their respective lives. Sitting Bull ended up going back to his tribe after the show in support of his tribe’s Ghost Dance movement which the United States looked upon as insubordination. The U.S. ended the tribe’s Ghost Dance ceremony with a massacre of the Indians.

Arapaho woman called ‘Pretty Nose’ sitting for her portrait at Fort Keogh, Montana, 1879

A photographer captured this image of Pretty Nose, a woman who was a member of the Arapaho tribe who was a war chief who took part in the Battle of Little Bighorn. 

Pretty Nose

There are those who stated that she was a member of the Cheyenne tribe, but what she wore identified her as Arapaho, thanks to the black, red, and white cuffs adorning her. She lived well into old age, so much so that she was able to see her grandson, Mark Soldier Wolf, become an elder of the Arapaho tribe. 

That American war plane looks beautiful flying off of the battleship on its way to mete out some American justice. Where are all of those great American heroes from back then who now would surely not allow these deplorables and sedtionists to drive a stake into the heart of our American justice.

… red-blooded thoughts about this warplane headed off to mete out some good ol’ red-blooded American justice.

My Cooking is Often Ruff.

Shockingly, I have not poisoned myself yet with my cooking during the pandemic. Normally, in regular times, one of my loved ones (like my #ex-wife, my daughters, my son-in-law, etc.) invites me over for pork chops, steaks, lasagna, grilled ribs, gumbo, shrimp stew and such… on almost a daily basis. Or else, every day I drive to one of my favorite creole/cajun restaurants for #worldfamous food… I cook at home often too if necessary. However, my cooking could gag a maggot; but you “got to do what you got to do.” Oh, I forgot, my sister Karen too brings over/ drops off her fine cuisine sometimes too… or my brother Carl and his wife pick me up every morning for lunch when they are in town. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10221056963626925&id=1028059611&sfnsn=mo

This is known as my crawfish pie.

Best New Orleans PoBoy

The seditious acts by the Republican Senators today is the work of a priviledged class of irresponsible despots, authorized tyrants and bloodsuckers who fasten upon the flesh of oppressed blacks and draw political power and consequence from the gall of their penultimate legalistic jiglisms and crimes.

They say, “This Authentic New Orleans Shrimp Po’ Boy with Creole Remoulade Sauce pictured below will knock your socks off!  Crispy cajun fried shrimp are piled on a french baguette and topped with a creole inspired creamy remoulade sauce creating the most delicious and authentic po’boy you will ever taste outside of NOLA!  Served with my New Orleans Beignets , Seafood Gumbo or Shrimp Etouffee for a truly creole inspired meal!”

I ate a meal with my stomach now cramping up a little bit. I am feeling stress. I am contemplating here on lying down for a brief moment. The cloud is fuzzy with some of the things which I saved. >>>What happened to the Mardi Gras story? How am I supposed to eat a New Orleans fried seafood po’ boy if I cannt eat bread or fried foods?

I want to take a break from writing mystery stories to write some biographical stuff.

I was born December 27, 19??. ?? is a year that I love. Numbers and how they fall have a lot to do with much that I base things on. Some of my favorite things have the number ?? intertwined in them in some way. History comes to life once you start delving into some of the things that lie on the surface. That is how different layers of your life begin to unwrap. 1818 hrs. >>The SAINTS look like they will be the 2nd seed which will play Chicago in Round 1 of the playoffs.

The First Chicken

So, two birds that weren’t really chickens created and hatched a chicken egg, and hence, we have an answer: The egg came first, and then it hatched a chicken.

Research by the Chinese has confirmed one of Darwin’s chief arguments about the chicken: It descended from the red jungle fowl aka the Gallus gallus spadiceus.

QUESTION: What did the chicken ask before she crossed the street?
ANSWER: She asked, “What came first… the chicken or the egg”?

My name is King Farouk III of the Werdie Dynasty, ruler of the Mountains of Zion in the old country on the Caribbean Sea. I, King FaroukFerdie the WerdieIII, dabble in THE WRATH OF GOD, and have succeeded Fuad II.

I recently read some local New Orleans history about Mayor Victor H. Schiro which I found to be very interesting. Schiro was mayor of New Orleans from 1961 to 1970, and raised some feathers during his term. Click the link to see what I discovered:

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10220654956737004&id=1028059611

Mayor Victor H. Schiro of N’wlins.

At a party one night, I do not know how, but I wound up in the vicinity  where my #ex-wife was sitting. I heard her telling someone that I am obsessed with her and that I am stalking her. It is not all that! I will tell you what is going on: All I am doing is laying back in the gap playing Mr. Cool waiting for one night when she has one too many drinks and asks me to lay something heavy duty on her for old times sake. She might say, “Ferdie, give me what you know that I need.” I want to be right there, Johnny on the spot, ready like Freddie to do what I do best. It is like when I was a Boy Scout… always prepared.

Always prepared!

One of John Brown’s captured men at Harpers Ferry U.S. Armory “ratted” on Frederick Douglass implicating him in the planning stages of the raid.

Donald Trump likes to grab ’em by the bleep. Well, look at what happened on election day…

I am almost thinking about cancelling my Twitter account if they keep letting Donald “Dummy” Trump tweet all of those lies and baloney. Cut Trump’s account off! His lies are not healthy for the country. Also, please hang Rudy Giuliani by his family jewels. I am sick of looking at his ugly face too.

Dear Lord, please evaporate Donald Trump.

Poor ol’ Frederick Douglass had to flee from America in 1859 to avoid the gallows with abolitionist John Brown.

Escaping from the gallows.

Douglass eventually caught a boat further escaping to England.                         

Now, 161 years later, the struggle continues in earnest. OH MY GOD!!!

2020 Presidential Election

Two Heads And Charlize

I recently said that I was going to explain “Two Heads Are Better Than One” which I said about the video below. If I had Charlize Theron living with me, I would get further along with my life and with things that need to be done. Charlize came to mind when I was trying to figure out how to explain my statement.

Two heads are better than one.

Okay, I hope that you are beginning to catch my drift a little. Here is another example of a person who could improve my one-headed existance with the help of an additional head to prove that two heads are better than one.

Yes, that is another example

Before I get back to my original point, I wanted to say that I would be doing much better if I had another head thinking with me. To expound, I post here a video that taught me a lesson on better handling situations when I am caught alone with only one head to think with.

Now, back to my original point. The link below shows Charlize as she grew through the various stages of her life until she reached adulthood. Then, is a nice current picture of Charlize. I think that you see why I need her to help me to think better. It will be double the thinking power.

Charlize

When I get more time I will explain more. Meanwhile, here is a video at which I guarantee that you will laugh.

This girl below has prettier legs than the real Marilyn Monroe.

Watch “My Movie” on YouTube

Happy Mardi Gras! Here is a clip that I made at Delery Studio. I hope that you enjoy! The movie (below the clip) is having troubles right now, and will not open. Sorry! I am working on it. Meanwhile, enjoy the clip that I posted for now.

 

This is the movie (below) that I posted. However, I am having trouble getting the link to work. So, I posted the above video so that in the meantime you can watch that until I get the link to the movie to work.

Also, I am very interested in writing about the climate in this country that Donald Trump has brought upon us. I do not know if any president has ever taken America so close to the brink. Anyway… 

After you finish watching the clip, I also wanted you to hear O.J. Simpson’s latest video on Twitter.

This lady is fine, and I have become  a big fan of hers. She might be on a series on TV presently, but I do not know the name of the show. I am waiting to see if she comes out in any movies in the near future. Her star is rising.

This is another foxy lady whom I admire. I have not seen her much on the Internet lately, but I will search to see if she retired or what. I used to see her regularly enough on the Internet. If I can find out some information on her, I will come back in and let you know.

I HAVE A DREAM!

by Ferdie J Werdie List Price: $9.95 Format: Paperback Size: 5 x 8 Pages: 117 Info: Romantic Mystery Publication Date: Mar-2002

My last entry before Covid-19 hit:

NOTE: Mardi Gras 2020 has passed.. I will write some good stuff about what transpired over the final 5 days of the season. Firstly, I will eat; then, I will write… maybe this evening. Lo and behold COVID-19 and the quarantine hit the country, and I decided to put a hold on writing about the Mardi Gras season for right now. This quarantine has been an experience like we have not seen. I will most likely write about that firstly.

Meanwhile, I describe in this video what I will write about:

The quarantine hit.

I am about to sign off for now. My stomach is growling, then I want to do some busy work. I will get back to y’all.



What are people saying about the lousy Republicans’ allowing no witnesses? Just wondering! Mitch McConnell is a court-stocking, obstructionist who failed to allow Barack Obama to legally pick his Supreme Court nominee. McConnell would not even allow discussion on Obama’s nominee. McConnell is a Confederate along with his puppet, Donald Trump.


  • Is the girl below skinny?
  • Is the girl below fine?
  • Is the girl below plump?

I read some words in a story about the girl below and how fine she is. Do you think she is fine? I do not think that she will see what I say here, but I think she is what you call fine as wine. That is just my opinion. Anyway, back to people’s thoughts about the dirty, lying Republicans. I am reading that many people think that the women of America will have to save us from the evil Republicans.

Do you see what the Republicans are doing to justice?

Do you see what the Republicans are doing?

Yes, I have to agree that maybe the ladies will stand tall and save us. There are many female warriors in America who are trying to bring our country back to righteousness. I believe that Congress needs to bring our Presidential election system into the 21st Century by correcting the flaws in the Electoral College which often gives the presidency to a candidate who is not elected by the majority of Americans. HORRIFIC! That leaves the important decisions of the future and the stacking of the Supreme Court in the hands of the minority. This is very unfair.

The ladies of America are proving to be a powerful block of voters.

Here is a song that I sing:

And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friends, I’ll say it clear I’ll state my case of which I’m certain I’ve lived a life that’s full I traveled each and every highway But more, much more than this I did it my wayRegrets, I’ve had a few But then again, too few to mention I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption I planned each chartered course Each careful step along the byway But more, much more than this I did it my wayYes, there were times, I’m sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all, when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out I faced it all and I stood tall And did it my wayI’ve loved, laughed and cried I’ve had my fill, my share of loosing And now, as tears subside I find it all so amusing To think I did all that And may I say, not in a shy way Oh no, no, not me I did it my wayFor what is a man, what has he got If not himself then he has not To say all the things he truly feels And not the words of one who kneels The record shows, I took the blows But I did it my way
