JESUS H. CHRIST!! Pelicans’ #ZionWilliamson is named as a starter on the #NBA All-Star team. #Hallelujah!
What in the hell do you think of that?
I cannot wait until the All-Star game.

Here is a Mardi Gras memory; a blast from the past:
BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is from Mardi Gras weekend 2014 in New Orleans: The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating on Fat Tuesday. I am worn down tonight; but I am going to kick things back off in the morning.
Yes, this picture is becoming one of my favorites. I need to find this poster and hang it on my wall. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS POSTER?? I want it.
GAZETTE (February, 2014) — I just read something that reminded me that the OSCARS are tonight. I might come back online later and list my choices before the broadcast.
GAZETTE (Jan. 20, 2023) — True story! During a 2023 New Year’s celebration (at about 1220am), I sang a song for the crowd which I dedicated to a sweet someone which rendition made her swoon. I occasionally serenade her anyway; and many of the romance songs which I sang at the Coffee House were written by me for her. Very true!
This following definition enhancement is illuminating for me because it tells me a success strategy. It might help me with reaching my goals: Ideation is not just a one-time idea generation or a brainstorming session. In fact, we can divide ideation into these three stages: generation, selection, and development.
A NOTE in 2014. (I have since changed my mind 180°): Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area?
I like old-school movies and old-school pictures. Bettie Page has to be the most prolific pinup queen ever. She has a great, unending volume of pictures. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-whoite 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.”
I liked last year’s…
GAZETTE (Sept. 2019) — Where is #HurricaneDorian going to hit in the U.S.? I heard some say that it might hit #Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s #Florida resort.
Ann Coulter sent an interesting tweet.
At least Dorian patiently waits outside our border before crashing ashore, more than can be said for your average illegal.

I want to say that Senator Mitch McConnell is a no-account scoundrel.

OH! I am all shook up.
Below I explain my deep love for old-school movies and pictures.. Plus, Here is a link which I am trying to embed here. I am searching for words to describe the precarious state of the world today. Russia’s evil leader, Vladimir Putin, has the world on the brink of Armageddon. You can click the link (in the meantime) until I figure out how to embed it and what I want to say.
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.
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are here in an iconoclastic scene from Casablanca.
Thank God for the channels that provide us movies from the Golden Age.
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.”
Ferdie has some words about Jesus.
The story of this Civil War couple touched me.
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
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.
I want to write about the turn of the New Year celebrations and the aftermath that I have been enjoying. New Year’s Eve started out with the arrival of guests at my daughter’s house. I will write more. I have to take a few minutes to reflect on the first days of 2022 for me.
Donald! Donald! Do not touch your daughter like that.
Oh, no you didn’t? Not in 1960’s America!
I want to thank my readers and subscribers for visiting the DELERY GAZETTE to read a little bit. There are some things in the news that I want to touch upon. I will add to this article as I write my thoughts on some of those issues. I want to write about the Academy Awards which everyone is chiming in on. While I am waiting on the NFL draft on April 29 I have been watching some volley ball.
Now, here are some of the Scrolls that I am writing in my “Captain’s Log” from my desk. I posted them here raw and just like I wrote them. If you have questions you can ask them in the comments box at the bottom of the post. Thank you!
These are some of my recent Scrolls for my next book:
These Scrolls which I originally wrote in my Captain’s Log at my desk are now more-or-less rough drafts of what I want to enter into my book. I will do much editing and cutting before they are “book ready.”
0827 hrs. >>It is supposed to rain this morning. I ate breakfast and drank coffee already. I want to put another intro at the top before I publish the book. They say quad summer. What in-the-hell is Quad Summer? This must be some kind of New York thing or something like that. >>>Maybe I will go off to vote today.
2033 htrs. >>I am watching the PELS as they go into the 4th quarter. With 9 mins. left in the game, it looks like the PELS are going down.
1512 hrs. >>What is the news today? Firstly, I will look in the fridge to see what I have to eat. Meanwhile, I saw this picture which made me happy.
1007 hrs. >>CNN is talking about notifying the families of the dead in Indianapolis. 1124 hrs. >>pork chop, roast, taters, greens. >>>Movie… please. >>I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
2343 >>peanut butter. Yes, that is my savior sometimes. I do not even always need jelly. Plus, I have read that peanut butter is very healthy… almost like a medicine. By the way, in this video below, I say something about the medicine of my music.
1400 hrs. >>peanut butter and jelly. Shower. 1643 hrs. >>heading to mandeville
0853 hrs. waiting on meal delivery. Put on some grass-cutting clothes. 1547 hrs. >>Waiting on the verdict in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin. I just found out that Chauvin has been out on bail during the trial. 1956 hrs. >>I am watching the Pelicans. I will probably turn the game off with 2 to 3 minutes left. I surely do not want to watch the PELS lose the lead and lose another game. My opinion: the PELS will not make the PLAY IN. They lose too many huge leads to lose the game in the end.
0955 hrs. >>Feeling pains in my side like kidney stones. Meanwhile, there is nothing like a good laugh to take the edge off the pain a little bit:
2127 hrs. >>since the PELS are kind of suckie right now I have, for solace, started following teams with the many former PELS who are thriving this season. RIght now on TV is guard Frank Jackson who is looking so good for the PISTONS. One who totally has me happy who knocked the pels in their ass twice the last 2 weeks, crippling their run for the playoffs. 2307 hrs. >>Treme is America’s oldest African-American neighborhood. 0127 hrs. Werewolf. Ali Boo-ma-yeah! Bomaye! Rumble in the jungle. >>I will get the tools out that I need. As soon as it gets bright, I plan to go outside. I guess it will be in about 3 hours. I will find my shoes now.
1237 hrs. >>It is now bright outside. I see coffee in the next few minutes. 2254 hrs. >>I cut some on the grass. I will do more tomorrow.
23April2021, Fri. >>needing to find the newspaper for the sports. TGIIF!
25April2021, Sat. 0150 hrs. >>Weak movie choices. Cut grass in the morning. 0255 hrs. >>Did chicken, nuggets, vegetables, noodles. 0656 hrs. >>Keep scrolling until an answer comes. I sure wish that I can find fish. 0746 >>Ingress. I am aiming at egress soon (leaving the house).
Someone told me to start using spray butter sometimes instead of the sticks. Why? I will then eat less butter, and lose unnecessary weight.

When did the Lord first speak to me?
An Oldie Post (by Ferdie Werdie) — 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.
DONALD H. TRUMP is up to his old tricks:
It’s an outrageous attempt by Trump to rewrite the history of the insurrection, which he stoked by repeatedly and falsely claiming the 2020 election was stolen from him. https://t.co/NsP4OApsCD

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!
Here is the schedule:
This video (below) is too funny. Just like a cat. It is almost amazing how typical it acts.
The seditious acts by the Republican Senators today is the work of a priviledged class of irresponsible despots, authorized tyrants and bloodsuckers who fasten upon the flesh of oppressed blacks and draw political power and consequence from the gall of their penultimate legalistic jiglisms and crimes.

1909 hrs. >>I am getting ready to watch some football. I feel the weather getting a little bit cooler. I will put on a hat, and put the heater on medium. I ate a meal with my stomach now cramping up a little bit. I am feeling stress. I am contemplating here on lying down for a brief moment. The cloud is fuzzy with some of the things which I saved. >>>What happened to the Mardi Gras story? How am I supposed to eat a New Orleans fried seafood po’ boy if I cannt eat bread or fried foods?

0347 hrs. >>I ate a nice roast dinner last night. This morning, I will fix a protein shake for my breakfast. I am shaking up some briefs in a wash tub presently. I also rinsed out some jeans, and will find out how they come out after hanging… if the rinse worked.
I am still not figuring out how to work this cloud thing correctly. I am sure that I will figure it out. When?

1527 hrs. >>My insides are messed up today; I sipped on 1/2 glass of White Lightning Moonshine yesterday. I am turning into a lightweight. >>The Rose Bowl is coming on in 29 minutes. I might enjoy that. I have to figure out how to transfer my writings from my touch screen to the 2020 computer. One idea is to copy it onto DELERY GAZETTE as a draft. My plan is to print a page out once it reaches the 9.5 mark. However, to send a digital copy to 2020, I will put the digits on DELERY GAZETTE.

0446 hrs. >>Everything is all messed up. I moved some files from my A6 phone, but then it looked like it shut down. Now I am moving some files to the Samsung Cloud. I do not know if I will ever see these files again. I put the chip in the computer, but it never did show up in the folder. I have to lie down for a minute because I am cold and feeling tired.
1123 hrs. >>Looks like I cleared some files to give myself some free memory on my A6 phone, Now, I will check the papers to see what games are on TV. Meeting in the championship game next week will be OHIO and ‘BAMA.
1858 hrs. >>I texted my daughter to wish her Happy Birthday. This evening is a boring affair. The Pelicans are on TV, but I flipped to the DNA show. Sigourney Weaver is one of the guests. I did not remember her being 6 feet tall. She is Scottish and English. Tomorrow has several excellent football games coming. I want to take a break from writing mystery stories to write some biographical stuff.
I was born December 27, 19??. ?? is a year that I love. Numbers and how they fall have a lot to do with much that I base things on. Some of my favorite things have the number ?? intertwined in them in some way. History comes to life once you start delving into some of the things that lie on the surface. That is how different layers of your life begin to unwrap. 1818 hrs. >>The SAINTS look like they will be the 2nd seed which will play Chicago in Round 1 of the playoffs. Tampa vs. Wash; Seattle vs. Rams.

Okay, the Saints are on their way. Next Sunday will be fun. What the hell is going on out there? I am having a little bit of trouble typing because I have a bandage on my right index finger. I cut it on a piece of glass leaving a gash. Meanwhile, since this football squeezed my day, I will try to find something good to watch on TV.
2317 hrs. >>I am getting closer to understanding the saving of this digital stuff. Meanwhile, I am going to save some more of the pictures from my phone.

I wrote an article of interest recently. It is entitled THE FIRST CHICKEN. I had promised to post it. The last thing before this that I wrote THAT LAST HURRICANE is listed on my desk under ON FERDIE’S DESK.
Previously, I wrote from my desk about the current state of affairs concerning the ugly, hateful Republicans. Click here to read it. I entitled it THAT LAST HURRICANE which is on my mind too. I will add the story to the GAZETTE in a few days. I started writing from my editor’s desk some of my concerns.
What you have in the “Delery Gazette” are my stories and articles. On the right column, I show the list of my articles so that you may read any of my stories that you like. Have fun reading what I write. So, look at the list of my articles on the right (or click at the bottom… for the full site view from a cell); and a list of writings from my desk, FERDIE’S DESK. Also…

I HAVE A DREAM!
by Ferdie J Werdie List Price: $9.95 Format: Paperback Size: 5 x 8 Pages: 117 Info: Romantic Mystery Publication Date: Mar-2002
NOTE: Mardi Gras 2020 has passed.. I will write some good stuff about what transpired over the final 5 days of the season. Firstly, I will eat; then, I will write… maybe this evening. Lo and behold COVID-19 and the quarantine hit the country, and I decided to put a hold on writing about the Mardi Gras season for right now. This quarantine has been an experience like we have not seen. I will most likely write about that firstly.
Meanwhile, I describe in this video what I will write about:
I am about to sign off for now. My stomach is growling, then I want to do some busy work. I will get back to y’all.
What are people saying about the lousy Republicans’ allowing no witnesses? Just wondering! Mitch McConnell is a court-stocking, obstructionist who failed to allow Barack Obama to legally pick his Supreme Court nominee. McConnell would not even allow discussion on Obama’s nominee. McConnell is a Confederate along with his puppet, Donald Trump.
I read some words in a story about the girl below and how fine she is. Do you think she is fine? I do not think that she will see what I say here, but I think she is what you call fine as wine. That is just my opinion. Anyway, back to people’s thoughts about the dirty, lying Republicans. I am reading that many people think that the women of America will have to save us from the evil Republicans.
Do you see what the Republicans are doing to justice?
Yes, I have to agree that maybe the ladies will stand tall and save us. There are many female warriors in America who are trying to bring our country back to righteousness. I believe that Congress needs to bring our Presidential election system into the 21st Century by correcting the flaws in the Electoral College which often gives the presidency to a candidate who is not elected by the majority of Americans. HORRIFIC! That leaves the important decisions of the future and the stacking of the Supreme Court in the hands of the minority. This is very unfair.
Here is a song that I sing:
And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friends, I’ll say it clear I’ll state my case of which I’m certain I’ve lived a life that’s full I traveled each and every highway But more, much more than this I did it my wayRegrets, I’ve had a few But then again, too few to mention I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption I planned each chartered course Each careful step along the byway But more, much more than this I did it my wayYes, there were times, I’m sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all, when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out I faced it all and I stood tall And did it my wayI’ve loved, laughed and cried I’ve had my fill, my share of loosing And now, as tears subside I find it all so amusing To think I did all that And may I say, not in a shy way Oh no, no, not me I did it my wayFor what is a man, what has he got If not himself then he has not To say all the things he truly feels And not the words of one who kneels The record shows, I took the blows But I did it my way

Oh, #MyGoodness! Is Morgan Freeman also among the accused now? Has a man “just talking” become a crime and a sin now? #WOE to men! REPORTED TODAY: “Several witnesses on CNN said that Morgan Freeman frequently made comments about the bodies of women working on set, at his production company, or even female reporters. Four people who worked on film sets with Freeman said that the actor made comments about women’s clothing or bodies.” Huh?!
Don’t look, Morgan. DON’T LOOK!
I wish that I could be a “bad” motor scooter like Muhammad Ali was. Muhammad said that he is so mean that he makes medicine sick. I filmed Ali for my job at a luncheon when he was in New Orleans to fight Leon Spinks at the Super Dome.
Why in the heck should empty land have more say-so in the election of our president than actual, human voters? This logic below is very flawed.
I saw another incident today on the news about utter, racist police brutality. I cannot watch much more of these incidents on TV. This stuff is not good for my spirit.
A friend of mine switched to a different political party, bringing joy to my heart. Any good news these days for Democrats and for righteousness is great news, no matter how small. We have a criminal president in the United States who wants himself and all of his henchmen to be above the law.
If interested, please buy here.
We (my local family) had some visitors come to town from California over the Memorial Day holiday. It is nice to see relatives from out of town. They came to town to visit relatives on both sides of the family. I did some visiting too on Memorial Day on my end. I had fun!
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.
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.
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 does that pretty cutie-pie work now? 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.
