Heidi Klum

I was in a movie with Paula, DEJA VU. I know that I mention this occasionally. I am watching one of her other movies right now and that is what made me bring it up. I was an extra in Deja Vu; Paula was one of the Stars. We did eyeball each other occasionally. I tweeted her to ask her out after she and her husband broke up. I tweeted her to ask if she wanted me to escort her to the Oscars.

Paula Patton and my tweet to her. I asked her out on a date.

And now, here is Heidi Klum in the picture below. I had posted a video of Heidi here also, but I took it down today. In the video, she was “too sexy for herself.” 🙂 I heard a comedian say that onstage once. He said that he was too sexy for himself.

Then, here goes O.J. running off his mouth how Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension for molesting 27 women was a long enough punishment. My opinion is that Deshaun should have been suspended for the whole season.

O.J. puts foot in… mouth.

My current take on the New Orleans Saints: I turned my TV off Sunday in the 4th Quarter after 2 horrific referee calls. I cannot take it anymore! P.S. I have the hat on in the picture below because my head got cold overnight.

Geaux Saints!

Okay, Elvis! HIT IT!!

Sugar Ray

Her outfit is nice because the mask and her gym pants are both purple. Outfits where the colors match are nice.

Nice outfit.

Raquel Welch was one of the top movie stars in the 1960’s and 70’s. I do not know if she won any academy awards. However, I think that it was the type of roles that she was given. Usually, like Marilyn Monroe, the studios typically gave her roles that mostly emphasized her nice appearance instead of giving her meaty, dramatic roles.

UPDATE: In 1974, Welch won a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy for The Three Musketeers.

Raquel Welch

A story by Sugar Ray (below) reminded me of one of my encounters that I remember. 

GAZETTE (July 7) — I had a similar story in my repertoire to Sugar Ray’s which he tells here. My story also took place in a locker room where I checkmated a bully. Here is Sugar Ray’s story first. Sugar Ray says:

“One day, a bully, probably about six feet two, threw me against a locker at Parkdale High. I was almost knocked out cold.” (However, at 13 years old, Leonard had started training as a boxer. By 15 he was competing as an amateur boxer in the AAU’s national division.)

He said, “The old me would have searched for any peaceful way to end the mismatch. The new me fired a succession of left hooks, missing wildly. The bully began to laugh, yet each hook began coming closer and closer, until one put his butt on the ground.

“I looked down at my fists, seeing them in a whole different light. I realised they could operate outside the ring as well as they did inside. As for the bully, he never bothered me again.”

  • by Sugar Ray Leonard
Sugar Ray.

by Ferdie (New Orleans) — I also had a similar bully incident in a locker room that I settled by knocking the scumbag to the floor with a powerful combination that my cousin had taught me. Just like Sugar Ray said, “As for the bully, he never bothered me again.” NOTE: I spend most of my time to myself, enjoying TV, cooking, eating, being with loved ones. I hate bullies, crime, violence and all of the killing in the streets.

I never did become the boxer or “ninja” that my cousin is; but with what skills he taught me I successfully neutralized several hateful lowlifes whom I came across through time. Today, there is such a spirit of hate in the world that it is overwhelming.


This picture below shows how Americans spray tanned themselves in the 1940s. I think that is similar to how people do today, but now they climb inside a machine which tans them.

Spray tanning in 1940’s.

By the way, I bet that most people around the world get their tans by lying on a beach or in their back yard.

Supreme Court

Music is the language of love. A song is what sparked off all of the love in the classic movie CASABLANCA.

Oh, what a love song!

I just watched the New Orleans SAINTS get robbed of a football game. But anyway...

The Baton Rouge Advocate bought the New Orleans Times-Picayune and now we get LSU on the front page of the sports every day, and relegate Saints, Pels, Tulane to page four or further back in the newspaper.


Even Jesus Christ held music “upon high” in his ministry, and sang hymns when he met with his followers. Jesus’ music tradition is still carried on today in most religions which hold music up in a high place. The Scriptures say that the Lord lives in our praises. Godly, spiritual music is praise.

This picture below is scientists’ rendition of how Jesus looked (using scientific and DNA methods). This is the picture of Jesus that they portray.

Jesus Christ

Scientific methods drew this picture of how they say that Jesus looked.


Do you remember when Donald Trump strangled his secret service security agent on January 6th?

Do you believe your very own eyes or do you believe the words coming out of Donald Trump’s lying mouth about the incident?

Proof with your own eyes…

GAZETTE (New Orleans) — This picture below of Mrs. Thomas is somewhat mean-spirited. Mrs. Clarence Thomas is a lovely lady. It is her politics and sway on Clarence’s SCOTUS decisions that people do not like.

Ginni Thomas

This is a younger picture (below) of Ginni Thomas which shows how lovely she was.

Ginni when younger.

Many people wonder if Donald Trump will suffer any consequences for his insurrection crimes on January 6th. He seems to want to announce early for the 2024 Presidential race in order to protect himself from prosecution. His thinking is that no charges will be brought against him while he is campaigning.

Meanwhile, I would like to perform my act and music again.

by FERDIE (July 4) — My stand-up comedy and music career might be over. The Corona virus shut the doors of the coffee house at which I performed for a number of years. When it opened back up (they and Algiers Point Bar where I did some open mic nights) contacted me often to come back and perform. I was not ready to go into Corona crowds yet. They eventually stopped calling. I might start back, but I still avoid Corona crowds.

Coffee house where I performed for years before Corona hit.

Kareem Abdul Jabber at 7’2″ makes Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali (both over 6 feet tall) look short. I tell you what, as I get older, I can see people who were shorter than I now look taller than I. It surprises me, but I had a back injury with vertebrae damage.

Kareem Abdul Jabber

Have you ever seen a turtle basking in the sunlight. It is almost a spiritual act. I could never understand it

Basking in the sunlight.
A Native indigenous question answered at this link:

Inquiring minds want to know. Can we come up with the public’s opinion on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard of their day (Brad&Angie)? I am now thinking that I should have given 2 more choices: 1. Neither one is wrong, or 2. Both of them are wrong.

100% of the voters said that Brad was wrong.

Sexy Jessica Simpson wants to know too. BREAKING NEWS (2016) was reported on the custody battle between Angelina and Brad:

I am happy to see that they resolved the custody battle for now.

Spring Time

Many states already had “trigger bans” written up for when the Supreme Court voted to outlaw abortions. That way their state would already have laws written up making it illegal immediately.

Supreme Court voted down abortion.

The Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday sets off a cascade of antiabortion legislation that will affect roughly half the country.

Without the landmark precedent in place, access to abortion began to change quickly. First, 13 states with “trigger bans,” designed to take effect if Roe were struck down, will prohibit abortion within 30 days. At least eight states banned the procedure the day the ruling was released.

These states were ready, waiting on the ledge to ban abortions.
Note: See most attractive man below.

MEANWHILE… It is spring time, and we are all hoping for easier times after this long stretch with the pandemic and the issues with the gun control. It is time for love to be in the air. Dog is man’s best friend.

They say, “Dog is man’s best friend.”

Speaking of man’s best friend, I saw that according to Science Magazine, actor Robert Pattinson is the most attractive man in the world. My scientific metrics are currently working out who is the most beautiful woman. To stop my metrics machine at this point for a moment to see who is coming out first right now, my study says that Sofia Vergara is tops.

Most attractive man.

According to how the numbers are playing out currently in my metrics study, Sofia Vergara is polling out as the #1 most beautiful woman. In fact, I wrote a story about Sofia recently. I will look it up and link it here.

My Metrics Machine says Sofie #1 woman.

Why would the deplorables want to elect a president who committed insurrection against his government? Joe Biden is 10,000 times better than Donald “Traitor” Trump.

I do not believe this.

I love crawfish, especially crawfish bisque which I ate last weekend.

GAZETTE (Match 30) — The New Orleans Saints have picked up QB Andy Dalton to back up Jameis Winston. Excellent move! I like this very much. Former backup QB, Taysom Hill, will now be used mainly as a tight end. I love the move with Andy Dalton. Now, Jameis Winston will have to have a good year for these moves to pay off.

Geaux Saints.
The 2022 season.
Oh, my goodness...

The New Orleans Pelicans are playing the Lakers on Sunday night. I am sweating bricks. The Lakers might want sweet revenge for that major butt-whooping that the Pelicans laid on them last month. Good God almighty!! UPDATE: The Pels beat the Lakers in an exciting game, and are now riding a high “wave.”


I think that I like this video below. Last week, I posted a still picture of this young lady. Now, thank God, she has put out a video of the photo session. Lovely!

Sorry to drag @rickygervais into this but his jokes at the Golden Globes were brutal. BRUTAL. No one slapped him because…well…he’s a comedian. @chrisrock didn’t deserve this and Will Smith ruined what should have been one of the best nights of his life. https://t.co/obXKy7qPed

The story of this Civil War couple touched me.
He died at Battle of Bull Run.

Two weeks after his last love letter to his wife during the Civil War, this man was killed at the Battle of Bull Run. All of the lives lost in making this country what it is, it is a sin and a shame that insurrectionist, traitor, seditionist Donald Trump is perched to announce in July his candidacy for President of the United States. Trump has served no penalty, has answered no questions to the Justice Department, has gone completely “Scott free” over the January 6th insurrection.

I have some words below about NFL running back Adrian Peterson’s release from the Tennessee Titans. For now, I have to look up some stats concerning today’s top 25 College Football Playoff rankings. 1.Georgia. 2. Ohio State. 3. ‘Bama. 4.Cincinnati.

My #exWife used to cut my hair; she is very good. My daughter who lives across the lake has trimmed my hair very stylishly too; but who feels like driving across the lake just for a haircut? Plus, my #exWife would “accidentally” stab me in the head occasionally while cutting my hair; and she clips very fast and recklessly around my ears often drawing blood. No, No, No! I do not need her with any sharp instruments anywhere around my head. So, I am looking at stores and on the Internet for nice electric clippers. I aaa

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans announced Tuesday that they have waived veteran running back #AdrianPeterson. The Titans signed Peterson to the 53-man roster on Nov. 5. He carried the ball 27 times for 82 yards and one TD in 3 games. #WoeIsMe! Could it be his age? https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10222957023967246&id=1028059611

The Tennessee Titans brought future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson aboard to try to fill the gap left by Derrick Henry.

The Titans waived running back Adrian Peterson and signed WR Golden Tate to the practice squad, the team announced.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that it’s possible Peterson could return.

Peterson was signed by the Titans in the wake of Derrick Henry’s foot injury, which required surgery and put him on the shelf for most of the regular season.

In three games with Tennessee, Peterson compiled 82 yards off 27 carries and scored one touchdown. The 36-year-old stands fifth on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 14,902 yards upon his release from the Titans.

GAZETTE (Sept. 11, 2022) — Why do I like old school cheesecake pictures? I like old school cheesecake because it is not gratuitous like some of the pictures today. Do you remember that they brought Bettie Page to court in the 1950’s? The government singled her out and persecuted her for her pin-up pictures which today are fine and dandy. The government persecution of Bettie eventually led her into a mental institution.

Old school.
This next picture is Bettie Page in a field.

Bettie had a prolific modeling career with many iconic and popular pictures. Then, the government singled her out by filing charges on her for her pin-up pictures. The persecution by the government eventually caused her to have a mental breakdown.

Bettie Page

Bettie was often referred to as the “Queen of Pinups”: her shoulder-to-armpit-length jet-black hair, blue eyes, and trademark bangs have influenced artists for generations. Wikipedia

GAZETTE (June 14, 2022) — Should Opie decide for himself? Sheriff Taylor (Andy Griffith) had these words of wisdom. “You can’t let a young’n always decide for himself. He’ll grab at the first flashy thing with shiny ribbons on it. Then, when he finds out there’s a hook in it, it’s too late. Wrong ideas come packaged with so much glitter that it’s hard to convince ‘em that other things might be better in the long run.”

GAZETTE (JUNE 13, 2022) — We celebrated my mother’s birthday last night. Relatives texted pictures; but I dropped my phone (my N.O. #), cracked the glass and cannot see texts, hear the phone ring or do anything. WOE IS ME! I have insurance though.

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:

Note Early Years

Should we tell MAGA Christians that this is the true face of Jesus, produced by computer generated synthetic intelligence — based upon information compiled about him? My question is: How accurate is the science?

Jesus Christ.

Next, Seeing my high school yearbook picture (second picture below) brought back many memories. I am at the top, left in the picture. However, before going there, I will write about a funny incident about watermelons (first picture below). For my job, I was on a mission at Cape Kennedy working some last minute ‘touches” on the Space Shuttle before a launch. During our stay at Cape Canaveral, my job gave each one of us employees a condo with nice, large kitchens and refrigerators. In the meantime… (to be continued later).

A Watermelon story!

Meanwhile, back to my yearbook picture for now… 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 that is 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 changed. 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 correct ears (their 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!

My opinion is that James Franco looks like James Dean.

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!!
