The Delery Gazette

I wrote recently from my desk about the current state of affairs. 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.

Meanwhile…

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…

See Ferdie’s books!

My last entry before Covid-19 hit:

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:

The quarantine hit.

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.



  • Is the girl below skinny?
  • Is the girl below fine?
  • Is the girl below plump?

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?

Do you see what the Republicans are doing?

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.

The ladies of America are proving to be a powerful block of voters.

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

Mar-a-Lago

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.”

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.

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

OH! I am all shook up.

Not Morgan Freeman too?

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!

Cheering

Cheerleaders! Close your eyes, men.

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.

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!

Diajelle and National Honor Society

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.

Where is Gretchen now?

Oh, by the way, I am not much of an artist. I do not have the touch.

Geaux Leonard Fournette

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette of LSU in the 1st Round. I am now a Jacksonville fan. I hope that with Fournette on board that QB Blake Bortles can make the Jaguars competitive in the AFC South.

Yes, I “MOST DEF” jumped on board the band wagon with Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars since Friday’s draft. I am quickly slipping off of the New Orleans Saints’ band wagon. I do not think that New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton knows how to use his running backs. He will most likely sit newly-acquired Adrian Peterson on the bench behind Mark Ingram; and ruin Adrian’s career. I cannot take Payton’s running-back idiocy for another year.

Here I am thinking about FOOTBALL!!!

Live Video Coming Soon

I will explain at some point this weekend why I did not make daiquiriis this weekend like I promised. It is a story that I need to tell. Also, I came on briefly to mention some of my thoughts about last weekend and Father’s Day. Meanwhile, I have to sign off for a while to TCB (Take Care of some Business). So, I will finish writing this introduction next time I sign on. Thank you!! UPDATE: By TCB I meant eat. Isn’t eating Taking Care of Business; and important “to boot”? On Father’s Day, someone cooked a big pot of seafood gumbo and potato salad; and I brought over ham and daiquiris. “Ooh La La”!! I wrote and recorded a song about this outstanding gumbo. I will add the audio clip here over the weekend.

I am still enjoying cherished memories from Father’s Day present and future. Like they say, some memories will last with you for a life time.

The picture below was taken five years ago while visiting my youngest daughter, Tiopol (center), and her family in Georgia. I even see Lil’ Potato (being held, back row) who was 1 year-old going on 34 years-old. My older grandchildren are grown now, in high school, working, driving, singing, doing well in sports, etc.

My second youngest grandchild, Dori, is on the far left. This is a rare photo of all 8 of my grandchildren together; plus my daughter, Tiopol (in the middle). It would be amazing to see them together now if I could get a current picture of them all. We were visiting Tiopol in Georgia for a Father’s Day vacation.

THEN, See Below: a taped, practice video (right below my first “live” video) which I am rehearsing before I attempt my next “live” video. Would you like to see how our editor looks and sounds? I plan to do a live video soon so that my readers can hear some of my latest thoughts. Today, I want to do my second Live Video on Facebook Live. However, firstly, I have to clear off my treadmill because I have been using it as a clothes hanger and closet. It is critical that I start walking on it, especially for at least 15-or-so minutes today. I could write a whole book on how much Easter food that I ate yesterday, including what they call better-than-sex cake. As soon as I finish walking on my treadmill, I will start writing a script for the video because I would enjoy to do another Live Video today or tomorrow. Any questions for me for my video? If you do not want to ask publicly on this post, you can write questions to me privately which I can then answer live.

St. Peter said that God is no respecter of persons.

Here is my first live video. I did not have a script prepared for my first video.

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?

UPDATE: 2/21/2018 — 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.

Carl asked:
Ferd, 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.

The Shroud of Turin

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?

Gazette · @Ferd3desk (cont)…
23rd Mar 2017
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.

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.

December Babies!

Carl Delery, my brother, recently said, “I’d like to wish collective HAPPY BIRTHDAYS to all four of my December siblings: Ferd, Peggy, Gail and Alan wishing you all the very best in your advancing age. Take care, and may God bless you with many more.

trumpet

Me!!! Playing my trumpet. The contemporary Jesuit High Band relaxes here while we alumnii play a sassy tune at Alumnii Night.

Since Carl just now called me an old son-of-a-BLEEP in that statement above, I have a story to tell about him in revenge. Ooops! I hate to interrupt my story here, but I just had to say while it is on my mind that I AM TOO IN LOVE WITH THIS GIRL (below). I love her! I love her!

Christie_wow.gif

Now, back to my story! When my brother, Carl, was 19 years-old, we (he and I) had an apartment on Paris Ave. in New Orleans. On second thought, since it is Christmas week, I will not seek revenge on my brother. Instead, I take this opportunity to wish my family and everyone a very Merry Christmas.

Also, in that same spirit of Christmas, I post the below picture of me and some relatives at a recent birthday party. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Ferdie Had Mucho Fun

I had a grand ol’ time at a party last night (Saturday). I will have more to say about my weekend later on, after I finish watching the New Orleans Saints football game. More fun!!! Hahaha… By the way, I had a lot of fun this whole weekend. Plus, I have made up my mind that I want to skip the Presidential debate on Wednesday because of the stress and darkness that Donald Trump lays upon my brain. I am feeling too happy the last few days for Donald J. Trump to rain on my parade. I stopped watching cable news for a minute anyway because Trump’s lies, sexual assaults and vulgarity have truly been grieving me out. I need a little break from the Trump mania.

This morning (Sunday) I had fun too very early while practicing my trumpet. I was practicing some spiritual hymns and worship songs. Of course the Lord laid some of His joy upon me for spending time this morning praising Him. Let’s hope that the New Orleans Saints also make me happy later on this afternoon. UPDATE: The New Orleans Saints made me happy this afternoon. Very happy!! I LOVE IT.

horn-rags

Fun!!! Those are my horn rags around my neck. I practiced a few songs on my trumpet this morning.

That bum, Donald Trump, is a billionaire and pays no taxes to the IRS unlike every other American across the country. He has no right whatsoever to be President of the United States of America.
