My Lovely Co-Pilot

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — When I was young, I had one like this (in picture below) cooking for me and inhabiting my kitchen. Now, I am old and have to do my own cooking and taking care of my own kitchen. My co-pilot is still in the vicinity, but she does not dress like that anymore.

I believe that the good Lord wants everyone to have a co-pilot in this life in order to help navigate the sometimes-treacherous waters and rough terrain. Sometimes your co-pilot might run his/her mouth too much or snap off in the cranial area occasionally. However, without your co-pilot close by, you might not see an upcoming boulder in the road or a pit in the ground. Thank God for co-pilots.

BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — There are laws in our constitution that protect the White House against slanders and attacks from traitors and foreigners who are bent on crushing our president and the White House. Zionistic and terroristic Israeli leader Netanyahu and the hateful, traitorous Republican Congress need to be taken to task for their traitorous assaults against the White House and our American president.

No! No! No! Please do not tell me that the hate and ugliness which is growing in this country will reach the depths of the early 20th Century. What in the world will the upcoming years bring us in this century? I believe that no one knows the depths that hatred will take in the coming years. I blame the hateful Republicans and hatemongers like FOX NEWS.

Why aren’t the local authorities in Mississippi investigating this hanging like they should? Why is it taking the FBI to investigate this lynching? I have been recently thinking about moving to Mississippi to be close to the beautiful beaches and the lovely scenery. However, if this pot of hatred in Mississippi is brewing up and beginning to boil over, I will probably look in another direction.

No Smoking in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — A NO SMOKING ban takes effect in 90 days in casinos and bars in New Orleans. Mayor Mitch Landrieu signed the ordinance today. Some smokers are not happy with the new rules.

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — PLUS, I promised my readers to install segments of my 2015 New Orleans Mardi Gras experience. I wish that I had an old-school manual typewriter because that is what we used when I started writing as a “cub reporter” for newspapers in the Big Easy. Meanwhile, I have a question for alimentary canal experts. I want to know if the potency of jalapeno peppers is still “hot, hot, hot” once it passes through the intestines?

TMI??: At the movies yesterday, I used some of those theater jalapeno peppers on a personal pan pizza. My tongue and lips burned a “good” 15 minutes. Last night at home, my stomach started burning up. In the latrine, I had a blow-out from my posterior. My rear-end burned for 7 minutes. Do peppers maintain their potent heat even after going through the digestive tract? Is that even scientifically possible?

Where does the job of the digestive tract end (finito) after doing its job? In other words, what is the final destination of the digestive tract elements after the job is done?

Digestive track EXIT.

Also, I am sure that today we are all following the news about Bobbi Kristina Brown. This is so eerie!! She was found unconscious over the weekend in a bathtub very similarly to how her mother, Whitney Houston, was in 2012. As of this writing, she is still in an induced coma. Her family has been advised to expect the worst.

I have seen quite a few movies about the NAZI death camps, and read much about them. I will never get used to the horror. The world is honoring 70 years since the Russian army entered the Nazi Auschwitz death camp to end the German reign of death there. I keep all of those who suffered and died there in my prayers.

Butter Beans and Turkey Necks

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) — I needed a change this morning for breakfast. So, I cooked a pot of butter beans and turkey necks. Now, I am good and full. I am ready to go out into this mean, cruel world with a full stomach. Hahaha… You know, it is important to have energy in your bones. I gave up New Orleans po’boys for a while. My ankles and legs swelled up over the weekend. Someone told me that too much French bread is not good for one’s blood pressure. My pressure must have shot up over the weekend because I have been enjoying too many po’boy sandwiches.

Many Saudi and Muslim women are required to wear head-to-toe hijabs. The public is not allowed to even see their eyes. What would the Taliban make of this picture?

My point? I compare the 2 pictures, and wonder who is correct.

Robin Williams by Ferdie Werdie

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I send out my thoughts for the late Robin Williams. I am listening to many words of love from celebrities and loved ones on the TV and on the Internet.

Billy Crystal’s tweet below said it all. Billy, Robin and Whoopi were a great comedic trio. They were all good friends.

In other news, all of a sudden I want to go into the jungle. SOON!!! If this is what you find lying around in the jungle, count me in.

Ferdie!!!!

Me and Lolo Jones in Bahamas

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — “Flirt” is not quite the operative word when it comes to my tweets to Lolo Jones. She gets thousands of tweets from fans; so, all I am is a link in her chain. Haha! However, if she ever does ring my door bell I will gladly give her fine self some play .

Lolo is a bundle of activity. She is always seen smiling and enjoying herself. Most of the time we see her outdoors.
