ALL SAINTS DAY

I am leaning here on my dad’s headstone six years ago on ALL SAINTS DAY. That is my sister, Peggy, facing the tombstone. I once said to relatives that I have at times awaken at home with my daddy sitting on the edge of my bed… my grandpa Cates too. I just said, “Hey;” then they left. I miss them #mucho. Some relatives guffawed/mocked this; but it is only for me… it even matters if only I think that they visited. My dad and grandfathers were so strong a part of my life when they were alive. I did not tell people this then hoping they’d believe it happened. Who knows what I saw?… not even I can explain it.

In NCAA football, only the top 4 in the rankings make the playoffs. Too dumb! In pro football (only 32 teams in the league) 12 teams make the playoffs… the top 12 seeds. In pro basketball (only 30 teams in the league) the top 16 seeds make the playoffs. In NCAA basketball, 64 teams make the MARCH MADNESS championship tournament. Get with it NCAA football. You suck! Of course every year you rank ALABAMA in the top 4. DUMB for fairness!!!

Guests on LET’S MAKE A DEAL often give up nice winnings to go for the big deal. This afternoon a lady gambled a fine, expensive vacation; and won a fridge instead. If I ever won a nice deal, vacation, money, car why would I even think of giving it back to go for the big deal? A bird in hand is better than 2 in a bush!

What’s Going On?

Note about my bladder: The doctor did something on Monday which seems to have my bladder working better so far. Over the weekend my bladder had “bottomed out” and was almost holding 0 water. Now it looks like it is holding water better.

I was worried for minute.

I am doing better now, and hope that I am standing on less shaky ground. I feel confident that I am on the right track.

I Have A Dream

TERROR NIGHTS is based on my books TERROR SCROLLS and I HAVE A DREAM found at http://www.fdelery.com. Hopefully, Part II will define some of the keys of the Scrolls that the scholars are divining. The star of the book, Joe, may just be a homicidal maniac.

Here is a picture from the past in my football days. Not too many years after this picture, I lead our school football team to an undefeated season. I was the quarterback (Drew Brees in the making).

That is I on the left..

This is a cute picture of Melania Trump. I am not sure yet that I will post it to the DELERY GAZETTE. I think this picture was juxtaposed against the pictures of all of the other recent first ladies dressed more formally. I am referring to the picture below of Melania relaxing on the airplane. She is a lovely lady. Yes, Donald is a lucky man.

MELANIA LOOKS LIKE a movie star. Donald made an excellent decision in marrying Melania.

I refer to Donald once again here asking for his support in correcting the NFL ills concerning the New Orleans Saints.

This movie below is based on my book TERROR SCROLLS.

How Petty Is Donald Trump?

This week saw Donald Trump reach down to lower levels of pettiness. All month he was already causing many Americans to suffer because of his government shut down over THE WALL.

I Am the Second Coming

There are prophecies in the Holy Scriptures that prophesy that I am THE SECOND COMING. In the next few days, I will elucidate, enumerate and elaborate on the prophecies about me. Come on, man!! Have you not read in the Scriptures about the sounding of THE LAST TRUMPET? Have you not heard of the RAPTURE? In the meantime, start looking into the clouds and listening for “the sounding of the last trump.”

I am seen at the bottom of the marquee. I like to close the night out. UPDATE: last night there were many fine, gorgeous women screaming and hollering during my songs like I was the The Beatles. I am not making this up. I am more surprised than anybody. They were screaming even during some of my songs on the trumpet. All of those fine thangs in their short shorts and mini-skirts screaming and cutting up like that made me regret not filming the show.

I like to close the show.

Before I started playing my trumpet on Thursday night at the club, I read:
From the lyrics of the song…
We are travelling in the footsteps
Of those who’ve gone before us
But we’ll all be reunited
On a new and sunlit shore!
Oh when the saints go marching in
Oh Lord I want to be in that number!

My Self Portrait

I just thought of the idea of having a self portrait done in order to cement my spot in posterity. Plus, it is important for me to complete “my story” for history. I want to work on smoothing out the rough edges, and laying on the finish coat of the product.

Speaking of legacy, my oldest granddaughter Diajelle’s grandmother MiMi (my ex-wife) asked me to print this certificate out to give to her mother (my ex-mother-in-law). Diajelle (who makes 17 this weekend) was selected as a member of the National Honor Society. She is also very thoughtful and kind to her grandfather, me.

Here is Diajelle going to her prom last year.

I have started mixing my martinis with the real James Bond martini recipe. I twerk the recipe a little bit to fit my taste. James Bond favored his martinis “shaken not stirred.” However, I am okay with mine stirred because I like to have a bit of ice in mine any way.

In other news, My lingering question about Fox News is: After fine, sexy-legged Gretchen Carlson of Fox News lost her contract with Fox, where did that pretty cutie-pie work then? I miss her on her afternoon show. Gretchen’s contract was not renewed with Fox because she filed sexual harassment charges against her then-Fox boss, Roger Ailes.

Oh, by the way, I am not much of an artist. I do not have the touch.
