Note Early Years

Seeing this yearbook picture brought back many memories. I am at the top, left. 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 right 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!

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.

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!

Mitch McConnell Sucks!

Oh, my God! #MitchMcConnell is a #dirtyrat. That cheese-eating son-of-a-gun has been shutting down everything in our country for the last 10-1/2 years.

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.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

I posted too many pictures of my “meals” the last few days… more or less as an “inside joke.” With this being Thanksgiving week, maybe I won’t take ANY more pictures 🙂.

By the way, about my current diet, my doctor wants to bring my cholesterol numbers down a few pegs with medicine, exercise and what I eat, like all doctors do. It’s not about turning myself into Twiggy, or about a “girlish figure”… it’s about the cholesterol.

I get more exercise than the average bear. I stay so busy that my dad used to call me Mr. M.B. because I stay “MORE BUSY” than Maison Blanche. Even my bosses always told me what great shape I am in.

Good eating.

Can I go long without posting a picture of food? No! Hell no!!! For those who do not know, this picture below is a picture of what we call in Louisiana a soft shell crab. Whoooo-la-la! I love ’em! You fry them.

20181105_120724.jpg

Soft shell crab. Delicious! One of my favorites.

I also want me some of this girl below. Dear God, please send this girl to my house. It would make me very happy if you send her to me.

Me wants! Me wants!

After a professional photo shoot, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar sarahmgellar on Instagram said, “I’m just going to pin these up all over my house as a reminder not to overeat on Thursday #thanksgivingprep.” She received much flak from commentors who said that the picture set unreasonable goals for the average woman. COME ON, MAN! Political correctness can be so unfair.

Me Want Me Some!

I want me some of this girl pictured below. A picture so nice that I posted it twice (here too: Please God!). Dear God, please send this girl to my house. It would make me very happy if you send her to me.

Me wants! Me wants!

ALSO, I AM IN LOVE WITH THE GIRL IN THE BELOW VIDEO. She has beautiful eyes in my opinion.

I will google her name because presently I do not know her name. I see her on TV often on group panels discussing sports issues on the FOX SPORTS NEW ORLEANS channel. She must have played sports in college or professionally because she is very knowledgeable about sports issues.

Hell No! We won’t go!! Vote on Nov. 6!! Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump want to bring us back to 1775. Hell No!!! Let us say “Hell No” to the hate.

Gumbo and potato salad to go.

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.

marquee

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.

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.
