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.

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.

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.

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:

Native American Legends:

Wakan Tankan (Wakataka)

Name: Wakan Tanka. Tribalaffiliation:LakotaDakota Personage: The Great Spirit; God. Alternate spellings: Wakantanka, Wakan-Tanka, Wakataka
Pronunciation: wah-kahn tahn-kah
Also known as: Great Mystery

Wakan Tanka is the great Creator power of the Lakota and Dakota tribes. Wakan Tanka is an abstract, omnipresent creative force who is never personified in traditional Siouan legends, and in fact did not even have a gender before the introduction of English with its gender-specific pronouns.

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.


Dear Marilyn!

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.

My Deeper Social Media

Sophia Vergara is #1 in my heart, and #1 in the world as most beautiful.

In the clip below is one of my favorite couples in cinematic romances.

GAZETTE (July) — How can this baby have the same exact smile as her mom’s. I will search to see if her mom has any later pictures of her baby. I want to see if her daughter still looks like her “mini-me.”

Mini-me; mom.

Ferdie has some words about Jesus.
Ferdie said something at the below link about Jesus:

Jesus Christ walking on water.

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.

BREAKING NEWS (note: this was an APRIL Fool prank which I fell for) >>Colin Kaepernick has reportedly signed a 3 year $28 million deal with the New England Patriots, per Adam Schefter. https://t.co/nZRBJLXI5O

Hallelujah!!!

Now to the LaLa Land of Orangeman, Donald Trump...

We hear so much said about Donald Trump that we become anesthetized to the surrealism.

I extend my thoughts and wishes to Sidney Poitier.

I need a second take on Sidney.

Latest Scrolls

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.”

Should Opie decide things for himself?

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.

This is an older picture.

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!!

Less Butter

Someone told me to start using spray butter sometimes instead of the sticks. Why? I will then eat less butter, and lose unnecessary weight.

Spray butter means less weight.

Marvelous are your (the Lord’s) works. And That my soul knows full well. Psalm 139:14

When did the Lord first speak to me?

I am praying for Kim to have a blessed recovery from her marital woes. I heard that Kanye moved out on her, and that is why she filed for divorce.

George Armstrong Custer lost his life and everyone’s life in his battalion of the 7th Cavalry at Little Bighorn because he wanted only himself and his troops to attack Sitting Bull’s village. Why? In order to capture young Native girls for his carnal pleasure for the journey back East.

In his previous mission Custer killed everyone in the village except 17 young Native girls whom he dragged back East to rape and to share his tent during the march. All Companies of the 7th Cavalry were supposed to rendezvous at Little Bighorn before attacking, but Custer disobeyed orders because of lust for the Native girls and personal glory. Custer’s body was found with an arrow shoved up his penis which the U.S. Army did not reveal to his wife.

Hey, y’all, I am having fun filling out my March Madness bracket. I have #8-seed LSU and #2-seed BAMA winning in the 1st Round. I even have BAMA going to the Sweet Sixteen… maybe even the Elite Eight. Some experts think that BAMA will make the Final Four. Once I fill in all the slots on my Times-Picayune sheet, I will go online to finish my online bracket, and maybe win the $millions or a car or a trip. Who Knows? However, most likely not!

I am doing my bracket

Here is the schedule:

This video (below) is too funny. Just like a cat. It is almost amazing how typical it acts.

Two Heads And Charlize

I recently said that I was going to explain “Two Heads Are Better Than One” which I said about the video below. If I had Charlize Theron living with me, I would get further along with my life and with things that need to be done. Charlize came to mind when I was trying to figure out how to explain my statement.

Two heads are better than one.

Okay, I hope that you are beginning to catch my drift a little. Here is another example of a person who could improve my one-headed existance with the help of an additional head to prove that two heads are better than one.

Yes, that is another example

Before I get back to my original point, I wanted to say that I would be doing much better if I had another head thinking with me. To expound, I post here a video that taught me a lesson on better handling situations when I am caught alone with only one head to think with.

Now, back to my original point. The link below shows Charlize as she grew through the various stages of her life until she reached adulthood. Then, is a nice current picture of Charlize. I think that you see why I need her to help me to think better. It will be double the thinking power.

Charlize

When I get more time I will explain more. Meanwhile, here is a video at which I guarantee that you will laugh.

This girl below has prettier legs than the real Marilyn Monroe.

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 folks 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 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!

Bettie Page has to be the most prolific pinup queen ever. She has a great, unending volumn of pictures. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-white glossy photographs taken by amateur shutterbugs from 1949 to 1957. The photos showed her in high heels and bikinis or negligees, bondage apparel–or nothing at all.”
