Answer About My Dreams

My brother, Carl Delery, asked me several questions recently which I will try to answer here. They are fine questions.

Carl asked:
So, your dreams have beginnings middle and ends? Do you have actors play the parts and even roll the credits at the end? Are all your dreams theatrical productions or maybe some are game shows? If so, do you watch the game show dreams to the end, like the movie dreams, and announce winners? Boy, it sure sounds like you have fun in your dreams. You probably even get to surf through the productions. Do you have instant replay where you can cut and perfect the performances? What do you do if one of your actors get sick, do you have stand-ins? Wow, that’s a thought. Do you have stand-up comedy or musical performances? Man I’m soo intrigued! Who is your favorite performer, is she the redhead? Do you have Shakespeare plays also (To be, or not to be. That is the question.) Is ‘Lil Red’ in Lady McBeth? She must be in a lot of your dreams; King Kong, Pretty Baby, Paper Moon, or in your case Paper Mars (I’m gonna send my wife to Mars.)

I will begin answering Carl once I study his questions. TO BE CONTINUED…

The shroud of Turin (pictured below) is the only physical image
that was left for history (and that image is stamped in the very blood which Jesus shed from the cross). If the message that Jesus taught is spiritual, then photographs,films, audio tapes, etc. seem to be the opposite of how
he wanted to teach. Think of the miracle that it is, in
and of itself, that Jesus’ word has lived. His word is the
greatest recorded message in the history of the world. Yet,
it is just as alive and vibrant as it was when it flowed
off of his tongue. That is why I think the Lord did his
work before the advent of modern recording devices.
I welcome you to email Rev. Ferdinand if there is a
special request that you want us to put on the altar of the
Lord.

Answer #1 to Carl:
Only in my dreams! It is getting late, and I may be falling asleep soon. What can possibly be waiting for me in my dreams? “Ferdie Werdie, where are you? Do you want to visit me in your dreams? I am waiting,” she says.

Ferdie Werdie, where are you?

Ferdie Werdie, where are you?

I saw a report this morning on the local news about how the trend of many people moving back to the Big Easy after Hurricane Katrina has changed. In my opinion, it is the high taxes, myriad fees and fines, run-away crime rate, government overbearance, inaccurate/incorrect traffic cameras, etc., etc. I dunno’. New Orleans has the highest taxes in the country which all add up to making citizens here feel like victims more than ever. This local government is not user friendly. It is literally totally user un-friendly.

There is an old Buddhist saying which reminds me of Donald Trump and his #minions. The Buddhists say, “No matter how much you wash a turd, it will not come clean.” Trump and his henchmen will never come clean even when their lies are exposed. We can see with our own eyes that the National Mall at Trump’s inauguration was nearly empty. Yet, he maintains to our faces that he could see millions of people that day from the platform on the Capitol steps. Trump is the historical definition of a turd.

Ferdie Werdie Was in Deja Vu

In 2006 (post Hurricane Katrina) I was an extra in the movie Deja Vu which was filmed in New Orleans. I recently saw the movie on cable while flipping through channels and caught my main scene. I was reminded of when I first saw actress Paula Patton on the set and was immediately smitten. It was my first time ever seeing Paula. I have been a fan ever since. I truly got such a big kick this week upon flipping to the channel right before my big scene came up.

Ferdie, honey, your scene was a hit.

I cannot wait for lovely Paula’s next movie to come out. Also on my mind is that now, with Carolina meeting Denver in the Super Bowl in February, I want to update my article on the playoffs.

Over the weekend, I somewhat accidentally caught my first Mardi Gras boat parade on Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. The parade was lovely and I had an excellent time. The parade was by the Krewe of Bilge.

I also love my University of New Orleans. When will the state and the LSU Board stop treating the University of New Orleans like a stepchild. We were supposed to have our Division 1 football team by now, but Gov. Bobby Jindal and the LSU Board killed the funding. I am ‪#‎mad‬. Can the team plans be resurrected now that we have a new governor with vision and are now governed by a new/different board, the University of Louisiana System?

I was working for the Shuttle program when the Columbia accident happened. I will never forget the shock at watching from the NASA plant at work the Shuttle go down.

The Best Crew at NASA

There is a case to be made that this is the best crew at NASA (pictured below). I also posted a picture of me below in order to throw myself into consideration for that same honor.

Here is a picture of myself because I now throw myself into the mix of Best Crew even though I was a crew of only one. Sometimes I have to give myself a pat on the back in order to lift my spirits. I am alright too; I am good at stuff.

This is the actual listing by the inspector when he made the pronouncement. I posted my picture above because I did not have a crew, but I was an army of one. I always hungered for recognition for my work. Well, it looks like I have to recognize myself.

My thoughts on Donald Trump leading the polls: With the primaries around the corner, I have decided to follow Donald Trump on Twitter. The very first ‪#‎real‬, hard copy vote of the 2016 race will be cast in Iowa on February 1. Then, we have primaries in New Hampshire and S. Carolina. Only then is any vote actually real. Then, this stuff counts; and now I begin to study ‪#‎DonaldTrump‬. The real polls begin; the rubber meets the highway… Only ‪#‎THEN‬! Some of the earliest primaries are listed below.

I think that I get the point of the below tweet. Is Hillary looking at what I think she is looking at? Plus, who is the girl? She looks like a cutie pie to me. I plan to study the tweet a little bit further in order to find out who the young lady is.

The Donald has received so much media coverage that he has to spend little money on his campaign. I think that this is more luck on his part than planning. He is just fortuitous with how the media has deluged the public with publicity on him.

This weekend we can look forward to four excellent wildcard games. The AFC contests are on Saturday, and the NFC contest are on Sunday.

Star Wars

Note: I am about to write my review of the new movie The Danish Girl. Plus, I will explain how I happened to see the movie today in the first place.

This is a picture of Alicia Vikander, one of the stars of The Danish Girl. I first saw her in The Man From U.N.C.L.E in which she was the Bond Girl, if you will. The Danish Girl along with Vikander opened to excellent critical acclaim.

Alicia-Vikander--V-magazine-2013-04

Also, once I see the new Star Wars movie, can/will I keep my mouth shut about all of the plot secrets and plot twists that the movie’s makers have kept so close to the vest? I have relatives and friends who are just waiting to do me harm if I open up my mouth about the new movie. UPDATE: I saw it, and I am keeping my mouth shut. Except, (oh, oh)… I have to say that if you can, I recommend that you see the IMAX version. I bought a ticket for the 3D-only version because it was the first showing in the morning. However, I accidentally stepped into the IMAX screening for a moment after getting some popcorn, and discovered that the IMAX audio is outstanding.

I have some videos and pictures from my daughter’s graduation that I plan to post at my Gazette. The 19th was the 4th anniversary of her receiving her Engineering Degree. Until then here is a link to where I saved some of the pictures: See the pictures.

This is another picture from around that time. This is my youngest granddaughter; but maybe she had not been born yet:

Now, here is a picture of one of Potato’s big sisters, Halfa’ Pint, from a few years ago.

I am thinking about starting up another Biggest Loser Contest in 2016. You can see the last winner at the link. Also, with the primaries around the corner, I have decided to follow Donald Trump on Twitter. Some of the earliest primaries are listed below.

Sarah Palin For President

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I wish that Sarah Palin would run for president. It would make an interesting race.

I will play a salute on my trumpet to Sarah Palin. Hail to the chief!

Sophia Loren Eyes Jayne Mansfield

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) — What? Do you remember this picture from our past? Jayne Mansfield used to dress provocatively publicly in order to attrack attention from the media. I would say that her tactics worked just fine and dandy here. Sophia Loren was having a quiet, pleasant dinner until Mansfield “attacked” her table.

This is the full picture of the incident. Jayne Mansfield did not exactly dress in a child-friendly manner in public. My warning would be to put all women and children to bed (well, at least all children) once Mansfield entered the vicinity.

Sophia Loren eyeballs Jayne Mansfield.

My Review of GONE GIRL

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I have begun writing my review of the movie GONE GIRL. If anyone does not understand the ending, just ask me and I will tell you what happened. Actually, I see “sequel” written all over this movie.

I tend to prefer watching movies at home because you can regulate the noise, the crowd, the temperature, the food… and, so much more. On the other hand, I also enjoy going out for the big screen, the IMAX, the 3-D, all of that. However, yesterday, a lady walked into the theater with a big bag of fried chicken, potato salad, potato chips, canned drinks, aluminum foil, paper grocery bags, the whole works; and sat directly behind me. I flipped my lid because I could not hear the movie with all of the noise behind me. Eventually, I got up and moved to another seat. I lost my trend of thought in the movie for a moment; but once I got to a quiet location, I got my head back into the movie.
