I was in a movie with Paula, DEJA VU. I know that I mention this occasionally. I am watching one of her other movies right now and that is what made me bring it up. I was an extra in Deja Vu; Paula was one of the Stars. We did eyeball each other occasionally. I tweeted her to ask her out after she and her husband broke up. I tweeted her to ask if she wanted me to escort her to the Oscars.
And now, here is Heidi Klum in the picture below. I had posted a video of Heidi here also, but I took it down today. In the video, she was “too sexy for herself.” 🙂 I heard a comedian say that onstage once. He said that he was too sexy for himself.
Then, here goes O.J. running off his mouth how Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension for molesting 27 women was a long enough punishment. My opinion is that Deshaun should have been suspended for the whole season.
My current take on the New Orleans Saints: I turned my TV off Sunday in the 4th Quarter after 2 horrific referee calls. I cannot take it anymore! P.S. I have the hat on in the picture below because my head got cold overnight.
Her outfit is nice because the mask and her gym pants are both purple. Outfits where the colors match are nice.
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.
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
This is a younger picture (below) of Ginni Thomas which shows how lovely she was.
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.
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
A Native indigenous question answered at this link:
Name: Wakan Tanka. Tribalaffiliation:Lakota, Dakota Personage: The Great Spirit; God. Alternate spellings: Wakantanka, Wakan-Tanka, Wakataka Pronunciation: wah-kahn tahn-kah Also known as: Great Mystery Type:High god, Creator Related figures in other tribes:Wakanda (Omaha), Earth-maker (Ho-chunk), Gitche Manitou (Ojibway)
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.
Should Donald be touching his daughter like that? I do not think so.
I have some words below about NFL running back Adrian Peterson’s release from the Tennessee Titans. For now, I have to look up some stats concerning today’s top 25 College Football Playoff rankings. 1.Georgia. 2. Ohio State. 3. ‘Bama. 4.Cincinnati.
My #exWife used to cut my hair; she is very good. My daughter who lives across the lake has trimmed my hair very stylishly too; but who feels like driving across the lake just for a haircut? Plus, my #exWife would “accidentally” stab me in the head occasionally while cutting my hair; and she clips very fast and recklessly around my ears often drawing blood. No, No, No! I do not need her with any sharp instruments anywhere around my head. So, I am looking at stores and on the Internet for nice electric clippers. I aaa
Gina Lollobrigida was one of the top sex symbols of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that it’s possible Peterson could return.
Peterson was signed by the Titans in the wake of Derrick Henry’s foot injury, which required surgery and put him on the shelf for most of the regular season.
In three games with Tennessee, Peterson compiled 82 yards off 27 carries and scored one touchdown. The 36-year-old stands fifth on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 14,902 yards upon his release from the Titans.
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.
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 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.”
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.

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 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 WerdieListPrice: $9.95 Format: Paperback
Size: 5 x 8 Pages: 117 Info: Romantic Mystery Publication Date: Mar-2002
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:
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.
Being afraid is the precursor to gearing up for battle, our democracy is at stake and it's worth fighting for. pic.twitter.com/QxoSNr7DmU
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
I punched a band member down the stands in high school. On Friday night, October 4, I played with my alumni band at a game. My brother, Carl, said, “Don’t have flashbacks and knock someone down the stands.”
LOL… Carl, I was totally thinking about that high school incident yesterday. Daddy was at that game, saw the guy tumbling down the stands, walked up to me, shook my hand and said how proud he was of me. I was a sophomore and the guy I punched was the “lead” trumpet player and a senior. The lead trumpet player nastily told me after the game to stop playing my trumpet with all the fancy notes b/c he was the “lead trumpeter.” I punched him out sending him rolling down the stands. Daddy saw the whole thing and shook my hand b/c he was so proud of me. Some people say that I am lying (particularly about daddy), but it is 100% true. Hey, man, I am Ferd III.. chip off the ol’ block. In fact, I de-escalated/”neutralized” many enemies throughout the years.
This is New Orleans SAINTS’ Demario Davis speech before the Seattle SEAHAWKS game:
It’s time to hunt. It’s time to hunt.
The hunt’s got three parts.
First it’s the prowl.
The prowl is where you study your prey and you creep in and figure out how you’re going to get that perfect strike. We done studied this opponent all week. We know the opponent. Now it’s time to strike,
The second part is the kill.
The kill is what people don’t like. That’s that nasty (stuff.) It’s violent. It’s qSAINTSuick. It’s malicious. It’s violent. When you see your opponent today, look him in his eyes and take his soul. And don’t stop until it’s gone. Don’t stop until it’s gone.
And the last part is to eat. It’s to eat. That’s the whole reason why we are here. When one wolf eat, all the wolves eat. When one lion eats, all the lions eat. So if you want to take care of your brother, you eat. You eat by making plays. Every throw. Every catch. Every tackle. Every sack. Let’s go eat. Let’s go eat!!
