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.

What We Ate

This is what we ate last night. That order is called a “boat” at Louisiana restaurants… a Louisiana boat of course. I will write more about it and put up more pictures, but I had better get off of this computer for a while to do some work around here. Yes, I have more pictures and comments about our lovely meal last night.

After our meal, I brought home two “go plates” (my share) from the boat. Guess what! When I got home, I finished off all of the leftover seafood, leaving only the french fries for today.

My take-home go plates.

I at first posted these pictures up locally, but wanted you to see them also. When I got home this morning, I climbed on my scale to find out that I put on 5 pounds since yesterday after eating that “boat.” I did not indulge by my lonesome of course. By the way, I remembered to take some pictures only after we (me and them) already ate about half of the boat. Do people from around the world also like Louisiana seafood?

Be Bigger Than That

UPDATE: I plan to take a few minutes today or tomorrow to write briefly about all of my meals from yesterday. I was surprised to find out when I woke up today that I gained only 1 pound.

Positively 4th Street
by Bob Dylan
You’ve got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down you just stood there grinnin’
You’ve got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that’s winnin’

You say I let you down, ya know its not like that
If you’re so hurt, why then don’t you show it?
You say you’ve lost your faith, but that’s not where its at
You have no faith to lose, and ya know it

I know the reason, that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you’re in with
Do you take me for such a fool, to think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide what he don’t know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say “how are you?”, “good luck”, but ya don’t mean it
When you know as well as me, you’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once and scream it

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I’d rob them
And tho I know you’re dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don’t you understand, its not my problem?

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is to see you.

Here is a picture of my brother and sister who have taught me (Ferdie Werdie) many lessons in life. Among those lessons is that it is sometimes important to stand up for your rights and dignity in this world. Too many people want you to just lie down and be stepped on. I have seen my brother and sister stand up for their rights, and I wish that I could be as brave as they are.

I have to look for Amy Adams’ latest movie. I saw her recently in a movie on cable, and think she is stunning.

My Golden Jubilee Diploma

NEW ORLEANS — Do you want to see my Golden Jubilee Diploma?

WHOOP! There it is! NOTE: My latest writings are found at my drafts on my desk until I add them to the Gazette. My fellow classmates and alumni at the Jesuit High School award ceremony were all just as happy as I am. It cannot get any better! Plus, my fellow alumni could not have been nicer to me on Saturday. I guess, like they say, at this point I may as well just “close up shop” and move on up to my big ol’ mansion in the sky with Jesus. Didn’t He say, “Today you will be with me in Paradise”? Well, Jesus, here I am. I know that you #never lie.

My Golden Jubilee Diploma

NEW ORLEANS, October 2, 2017 — Inside of every big, bad man lives a little, bitty boy. One of the fine little girls from my school story below (actually 2 grades above me) who was highly honored by her girlfriends for often beating me up in grammar school subsequently asked me to take her to her first prom when she was a junior in high school. Her exotic and romantic prom was on one of the river boats in New Orleans, and was the very day that I became 007, super agent man :).

In grammar school, I would hide in the bushes and shadows on the girls’ side of the school yard in order to watch the sexy little girls’ fine, pretty legs as they jumped rope and played hopscotch. I would even occasionally run out and yank their school skirt up to get a clean, bird’s-eye view. Ooh-Wee! The little girls often jumped me and beat me up. I LOVED IT! I actually also wrote about this in my first book DRIVE WOMEN CRAZY!

Live Video Coming Soon

I will explain at some point this weekend why I did not make daiquiriis this weekend like I promised. It is a story that I need to tell. Also, I came on briefly to mention some of my thoughts about last weekend and Father’s Day. Meanwhile, I have to sign off for a while to TCB (Take Care of some Business). So, I will finish writing this introduction next time I sign on. Thank you!! UPDATE: By TCB I meant eat. Isn’t eating Taking Care of Business; and important “to boot”? On Father’s Day, someone cooked a big pot of seafood gumbo and potato salad; and I brought over ham and daiquiris. “Ooh La La”!! I wrote and recorded a song about this outstanding gumbo. I will add the audio clip here over the weekend.

I am still enjoying cherished memories from Father’s Day present and future. Like they say, some memories will last with you for a life time.

The picture below was taken five years ago while visiting my youngest daughter, Tiopol (center), and her family in Georgia. I even see Lil’ Potato (being held, back row) who was 1 year-old going on 34 years-old. My older grandchildren are grown now, in high school, working, driving, singing, doing well in sports, etc.

My second youngest grandchild, Dori, is on the far left. This is a rare photo of all 8 of my grandchildren together; plus my daughter, Tiopol (in the middle). It would be amazing to see them together now if I could get a current picture of them all. We were visiting Tiopol in Georgia for a Father’s Day vacation.

I put my hat on to take this picture. I am watching Giants vs. Philly.

THEN, See Below: a taped, practice video (right below my first “live” video) which I am rehearsing before I attempt my next “live” video. Would you like to see how our editor looks and sounds? I plan to do a live video soon so that my readers can hear some of my latest thoughts. Today, I want to do my second Live Video on Facebook Live. However, firstly, I have to clear off my treadmill because I have been using it as a clothes hanger and closet. It is critical that I start walking on it, especially for at least 15-or-so minutes today. I could write a whole book on how much Easter food that I ate yesterday, including what they call better-than-sex cake. As soon as I finish walking on my treadmill, I will start writing a script for the video because I would enjoy to do another Live Video today or tomorrow. Any questions for me for my video? If you do not want to ask publicly on this post, you can write questions to me privately which I can then answer live.

St. Peter said that God is no respecter of persons.

Here is my first live video. I did not have a script prepared for my first video.

Here Below is a practice video of a script that I wrote preparing to
