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.

Diajelle’s Certificate

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.

Where is Gretchen now?

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.

Amy! Amy! Amy!

At the Heart of the Secrets

I often used the Pythagorean theorem and all of Euclidean formulas on my job for NASA and in life in general. My educational background led me to the use of many formulas from my studies in school. I scored the highest mathematics scores in the history of the school on the entrance exam to my high school, Jesuit High School of New Orleans. As I moved further into my educational career, I learned that deep mathematical theories and formulas lie at the heart of all of the hidden secrets in this life. Have you ever heard of THE BOOK OF NUMBERS in the bible?

DeNiro Said Trump Is

Covfefe?? I write this to Bob Kuhn, the host of the Comedy Hour at the NEUTRAL GROUND Coffee House in New Orleans: LOL… you are too funny, Bob. I am coming tonight with some jokes for you and the crowd. I probably will not do any jokes on politics or Donald J. Trump. You know that I basically avoid such jokes because I never know what the audience will be like. I will come to the show with rings on my fingers and bells on my toes.

Check out @BrownUniversity’s Tweet and what Robert De Niro said about Donald Trump:

“This guy (Donald Trump) has sullied the presidency. He’s debased the presidency. It’s just beyond surreal what this guy has done,” De Niro told Rosanna Scotto on “Good Day New York.”

The actor has also called Trump “blatantly stupid” and “a punk,” comments he still stands by.

An Ignoramus

Check out former Republican presidential candidate and resident nitwit Herman Cain’s tweet. See what that ignoramus said.

Oh my God! Oh my God!

Country singer Garth Brooks gave his explanation of an excellent way to look at the transfer to a new president in America.

In the presidential election cycle, I was actually weighing the option of possibly voting for Donald Trump for president until he refused to reveal his tax returns. That was a deal breaker for me. He wants to spend every other American’s tax money on a lot of ridiculous stuff, but he does not pay one penny to the IRS. What kind of alternate universe is that?

liberty

Yeah, ya’ right!! The good Lord will weigh in.

I Luv Hillary Clinton

Geaux, Girl! You need to do it for the sake of history. I luv, wuv and love Hillary Clinton. She will make a great president. All of you chauvinist pigs (including that wildebeest Donald Trump) need to leave her the hell alone.

Oh, and By the Way, Bill Clinton will make an excellent 1st Lady.

This is what I was thinking early on Saturday evening; but I thought wrong. My horse did not do well, to put it mildly:

The evening news, not too long after I enjoyed the Belmont Stakes, bore such terrible news that there is now a pallor hanging over the country. Will the world ever see an end to the horrible wars and killings?
