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.

#Bananas and #Bosoms

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — #Doctors say that men over 40 who look at fine, bosomy #women for 10 minutes a day will lengthen their lives. One of the women whom I like to look at is former #1 Charlie Sheen goddess, Bree Olson. Plus, I now learn that this activity is good for my health. I also watch Let’s Make A Deal almost every day in order to view and dream about lovely model and presenter Tiffany Coyne. Everybody wonders why my health is so fantastic and how I look so good.

According to doctors in this study (see link), looking at a lovely, well-endowed woman for 10 minutes a day is the equivalent of a 30-minute aerobics workout: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/health/doctors-say-looking-busty-women-1107578

The German study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, concludes that staring at fine women for a few minutes daily is better for your health than going to the gym.

“Just 10 minutes of looking at the charms of well-endowed females is equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out,” said author Dr Karen Weatherby, an expert on aging.

The research team, led by Dr Weatherby, spent five years monitoring the effects of this unique discovery.

The men who were told to stare at bosoms daily had lower blood pressure and slower resting pulse rates and also decreased their risk of coronary artery disease.

Dr Weatherby explained: “Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation.

Here are other picture of actress Bree Olson whose visage many men enjoy gazing at:

Another thing that is very healthy is daily consumption of bananas

Speaking of bananas and tropical stuff… it is Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. Pictured below is the queen of one of the parades and clubs.

Another actress who is very lovely and gets your blood to flowing is Scarlett Johansson.

Do y’all want to see more pictures of me (Ferdie Werdie)? In the meantime, I plan to do some Mardi Gras stuff at which I will take some nice pictures. Speaking of pictures, I am looking over some pictures that I took last year.

Happy Halloween

Note: See bottom for the winner of our Biggest Loser Contest, and for a picture of my safety award jacket.

Now, here is a lovely picture that my daughter took on Halloween of her niece (my granddaughter). My daughters were dressing my grandchildren in their costumes for the festivities. We all had a fun time. If you want to see even more pictures of us from Halloween, you can click here: More Pictures At My Daughter’s Site.

Yes, Carl won it.

I have a question:

Graham and Marshawn to Kill PATS

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — The New Orleans Saints do not want to make the Super Bowl any time soon, especially after trading Jimmy Graham #TheBeast to Seattle with Marshawn Lynch #TheBeast already terrorizing defenses in the NFL. Two BEASTS at the same time? HISTORICAL! I am down with that. Until further notice and unless something changes, my money is on the Seattle SuperHawks in 2015.

Now, I want Seattle to stomp on the head of the cheating New England Patriots. Seattle, you had the snake crushed in this year’s Super Bowl. You let them get away. You begin that journey this year with another beast added to your inventory. I want it. I want it!! I hope that all PATS haters around the country are salivating from their teeth itching to see the next Seattle vs. New England game.

Jimmy Graham, the new #BEAST in town.

Plus, I must say that I am amazed how popular Bettie Page still is today. I am sure that her people are making much more money than Bettie did in her day. I bought a beautiful red t-shirt which commemorated Bettie’s birthday last year. It is one of my favorite shirts. Geaux, Bettie!!

In other Saints news, I was asked my opinion of the owner’s battles with his heirs in which he is, upon his passing, leaving the running of the Saints and Pelicans exclusively to his wife. My opinion is that the teams and his fortune are his to do with as he likes. His heirs are already taken care of well enough by Mr. Benson. His wife, Gayle, will be the best person to take care of the Saints and the Pelicans once Mr. Benson is gone.

In the Beginning, God said…

In the beginning, God said: I play the trumpet.
In 1967, Louis Armstrong said: No kidding? You too?
In 2014, Ryan Seacrest said: I play the clarinet…
Go figure! Hahaha…

Here is Ferdie practicing for a gig this weekend on his INSTRUMENT OF THE LORD.

Ferdie Werdie

People often ask me, “Ferdie, what do you dream about? What comes up mostly in your dreams”? I tell them that often I dream about loved ones and relatives who have passed away. I often have vivid dreams where loved ones visit me in my dreams, and we have in-depth long conversations. I also have many, vivid, lively dreams about fine, lovely young ladies; some of whom I do not even know. I wake up truly feeling like I had just spent time with these ladies. I have even subsequently met some of these dream girls in real life. Unbelievable! They often look just like from my dreams. In fact, beginning over 30 years ago I used to dream about the very house that I live in now. I wrote a book in 2002 I HAVE A DREAM about living in this exact house. Who would have even imagined back then that I would now be living in this house. Out of the blue, I was offered to buy this house in 2007.

Saints’ #WhoDAT Purgatory

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) — I have doubted the New Orleans Saints for many weeks now; and predicted 8 straight losses. However, #Purgatory? Do I deserve #Saints Purgatory? That is what Who Dats are saying. I guess what goes around, comes around. I am now on “bended knee,” reciting the Catholic “Mea Culpa” prayer of penance. Yes, it is MY FAULT. I confess that I doubted the Saints. Through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault! However, I am wearing my black-and-gold pajamas right now; and I promise to wear them every night this week.

My sentence: A Who Dat named Joan told me, “Not so fast!!! The gates are closed to you!!! To gain entry you must 1st go to purgatory & remain there until you are deemed worthy to again be counted in that #! The SAINTS don’t like DAT!”

Press Conference by Ferdie Werdie

Here is a press conference from this morning in which I disseminated some vital information which I know about the NFL.

Further info may come later. UPDATE: It may be a “minute” before I can write any more information related to the press conference. Presently, I am busy trying to eat and relax. Anyone who knows me well, knows that once I finish a meal I usually lie down and sleep for a while. Who knows when I will wake up? Plus, this evening I want to watch the National League Wild Card (1-game World Series playoff) between San Francisco and Pittsburgh. So, I know that y’all can see that once I start my siesta, I might be out of commission for a “minute.”
