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.

Diajelle’s Certificate

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.

What We Ate

This is what we ate last night. That order is called a “boat” at Louisiana restaurants… a Louisiana boat of course. I will write more about it and put up more pictures, but I had better get off of this computer for a while to do some work around here. Yes, I have more pictures and comments about our lovely meal last night.

After our meal, I brought home two “go plates” (my share) from the boat. Guess what! When I got home, I finished off all of the leftover seafood, leaving only the french fries for today.

My take-home go plates.

I at first posted these pictures up locally, but wanted you to see them also. When I got home this morning, I climbed on my scale to find out that I put on 5 pounds since yesterday after eating that “boat.” I did not indulge by my lonesome of course. By the way, I remembered to take some pictures only after we (me and them) already ate about half of the boat. Do people from around the world also like Louisiana seafood?

PAPA JOHNS

It was time for the NFL to get rid of PAPA JOHNS and its politics. I wonder if Mr. John thought that all of his customers hold the same 1800’s, antiquated political values that he holds. He needed to shut up, and simply make pizzas.

Check out @NFLWrld’s Tweet:

NFL players are excited for Pizza Hut to replace Papa Johns as the league’s official pizza (link: https://goo.gl/ftQGRf) goo.gl/ftQGRf

Yes… The NFL has a new official pizza. Pizza Hut will take over the reins from Papa Johns as the league’s official pizza. The change comes months after Papa Johns owner John Schnatter said player protests were hurting his company’s sales and condemned the league for not “resolving the issue.”

Obviously, NFL players were thrilled with the change and took to social media to voice their approval of the league’s new pizza supplier (while also throwing a little shade at Papa Johns)…

In other news… Awww, man, I liked the prelude that The Neutral Ground coffee house wrote before my most recent performance. How flattering!

King Ferdinand and The Neutral Ground

I love what the Neutral Ground cafe writes about me before each of my performances. I enjoy singing my love songs to the fine ladies in the audience. However, I pamper myself by throwing in my favorite jokes between the romance. FUN!!! One day I will sit down and describe what a pleasure it is making the gorgeous young ladies in the audience swoon and laugh at the same time.

UPDATE: 2/25/2018 — 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.

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

My brother, Carl Delery, asked me several questions recently: Ferd, it sure sounds like you have fun in your dreams. Do your dreams have beginnings, middle and ends? Do you have actors play the parts? Do you have instant replay where you can cut and perfect the performances?

Answer #1 to my brother 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.

Be Bigger Than That

Positively 4th Street
by Bob Dylan
You’ve got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down you just stood there grinnin’
You’ve got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that’s winnin’

You say I let you down, ya know its not like that
If you’re so hurt, why then don’t you show it?
You say you’ve lost your faith, but that’s not where its at
You have no faith to lose, and ya know it

I know the reason, that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you’re in with
Do you take me for such a fool, to think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide what he don’t know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say “how are you?”, “good luck”, but ya don’t mean it
When you know as well as me, you’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once and scream it

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I’d rob them
And tho I know you’re dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don’t you understand, its not my problem?

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is to see you.

Here is a picture of my brother and sister who have taught me (Ferdie Werdie) many lessons in life. Among those lessons is that it is sometimes important to stand up for your rights and dignity in this world. Too many people want you to just lie down and be stepped on. I have seen my brother and sister stand up for their rights, and I wish that I could be as brave as they are.

I have to look for Amy Adams’ latest movie. I saw her recently in a movie on cable, and think she is stunning.

My Golden Jubilee Diploma

NEW ORLEANS — Do you want to see my Golden Jubilee Diploma?

WHOOP! There it is! NOTE: My latest writings are found at my drafts on my desk until I add them to the Gazette. My fellow classmates and alumni at the Jesuit High School award ceremony were all just as happy as I am. It cannot get any better! Plus, my fellow alumni could not have been nicer to me on Saturday. I guess, like they say, at this point I may as well just “close up shop” and move on up to my big ol’ mansion in the sky with Jesus. Didn’t He say, “Today you will be with me in Paradise”? Well, Jesus, here I am. I know that you #never lie.

My Golden Jubilee Diploma

NEW ORLEANS, October 2, 2017 — Inside of every big, bad man lives a little, bitty boy. One of the fine little girls from my school story below (actually 2 grades above me) who was highly honored by her girlfriends for often beating me up in grammar school subsequently asked me to take her to her first prom when she was a junior in high school. Her exotic and romantic prom was on one of the river boats in New Orleans, and was the very day that I became 007, super agent man :).

In grammar school, I would hide in the bushes and shadows on the girls’ side of the school yard in order to watch the sexy little girls’ fine, pretty legs as they jumped rope and played hopscotch. I would even occasionally run out and yank their school skirt up to get a clean, bird’s-eye view. Ooh-Wee! The little girls often jumped me and beat me up. I LOVED IT! I actually also wrote about this in my first book DRIVE WOMEN CRAZY!

At the Heart of the Secrets

I often used the Pythagorean theorem and all of Euclidean formulas on my job for NASA and in life in general. My educational background led me to the use of many formulas from my studies in school. I scored the highest mathematics scores in the history of the school on the entrance exam to my high school, Jesuit High School of New Orleans. As I moved further into my educational career, I learned that deep mathematical theories and formulas lie at the heart of all of the hidden secrets in this life. Have you ever heard of THE BOOK OF NUMBERS in the bible?
