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.
The New Orleans Saints have picked up QB Andy Dalton to back up Jameis Winston. Excellent move! I like this very much. Former backup QB, Taysom Hill, will now be used mainly as a tight end. I love the move with Andy Dalton. Now, Jameis Winston will have to have a good year for these moves to pay off.
Oh, my goodness...
The New Orleans Pelicans are playing the Lakers on Sunday night. I am sweating bricks. The Lakers might want sweet revenge for that major butt-whooping that the Pelicans laid on them last month. Good God almighty!! UPDATE: The Pels beat the Lakers in an exciting game, and are now riding a high “wave.”
I think that I like this video below. Last week, I posted a still picture of this young lady. Now, thank God, she has put out a video of the photo session. Lovely!
Sorry to drag @rickygervais into this but his jokes at the Golden Globes were brutal. BRUTAL. No one slapped him because…well…he’s a comedian. @chrisrock didn’t deserve this and Will Smith ruined what should have been one of the best nights of his life. https://t.co/obXKy7qPed
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.
I wrote here my latest Scrolls from my daily Captain’s Log. I will edit it as I go, after I publish it. Remember that the pandemic is going on, and I spend most of my time indoors. I just wanted to get an article published. Please understand. 20August2021

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.

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.

Seeing this yearbook picture brought back many memories. I am at the top, left. Once I hit college, I grew my hair longer and was like a run-away freight train on the loose. All of the many pretty girls at the U. of New Orleans drove me crazy. I heard my dad tell his friends on several occasions, “That boy better slow down with those girls before he hurts himself.” Now-a-days in the twilight years of my life, I lie down in bed at night racked with guilt. I want to say that I am sorry. It was not until I was older that I learned that you are supposed to save yourself for marriage. No one ever told me that the Church commands us to avoid pre-marital shenanigans. Who knew? I cry in bed at night sometimes wanting to say, “I am sorry…” to all of God’s sweet creatures who put their hearts into my hands.
When I was in high school I was more serious and reserved. The only thing that is the same now is my music. I changed 180 degrees after I took drama and speech electives at the U. of New Orleans. I was in some plays, and more-or-less changed. Yes, I obtained a sense of comedy.
Seeing my senior picture also reminded me that I wake up at night sometimes in a cold sweat wishing to God that I could express my sincere “mea culpas” to the women. MEA MAXIMA CULPA, as the Catholic repentance goes! Maybe in heaven I will be able to have my apologies reach the right ears. In the Old Testament they did penance with ashes covering their brows and wearing torn garments. FORGIVE ME, WOMEN OF THE WORLD!!!… for I know not what I do!
I guarantee you that James Franco could successfully play James Dean in a bio pic (if he has not already done so). I just flipped to the movie GIANT from 1956 and James Dean looks just like Franco.
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!
The Play-In game (PELS vs. Lakers) will be played at the home of seed 9 team which is New Orleans for right now. The winner will play the loser of the seed 7 vs. 8 game ( Den vs. Clippers). The winners of the Play-In games will then go to the playoffs as seeds 7 and 8 with the losers eliminated and going home. Then the regular Playoffs tourney (Round 1) 7-game series’ will start: 1vs.8, 2vs.7, 3vs.6, 4vs.5.
To my brother, Carl: Look at all of the teams lower than New Orleans and Los Angeles (pertaining to the draft). I feel sorry for the 7 and 8 seeds who used to go straight to the playoffs without having to play the 9 or 10 seed. I think it is unfair to 7 and 8. The pandemic is over now. Why not go back to the old system now.
UPDATE to last week’s NBA standings: @Carl Delery >>I hope that you are not mad at me for our discussion last week about the standings for the playoffs between the Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans. Look where the Lakers are now; they even fell out of the play-in. So, they might not make the playoffs; but the NBA still has seven games left to play. Just click that picture below to enlarge it where you can see the standings well. Just click the picture!
Last week in PELICANS versus Charlotte, a referee threw out one of New Orleans’ players who was shutting Charlotte down. I have not watched the Pels since last week when that bad call by the refs cost them the game vs. Charlotte. New Orleans fans are still sensitive to bad calls since the refs rudely cost the Saints three Super Bowl appearances recently. The PELICANS were running away with the game. I immediately changed the channel. Herbert Jones did not foul roughly, but was thrown out of the game anyway. I, just this minute, saw that New Orleans lost. I could not watch anymore after that bad call. The referee gave the game to Charlotte. That might change New Orleans’ whole season.
@Carl >>Did you say that someone told you about the metrics of the Anthony Davis trade deal between Los Angeles and New Orleans? I know you did not figure that out all by yourself. That is some deep mathematics. Yes, the Anthony Davis trade involved stuff like that. However, I was talking about the playoffs scenario not about any confounded draft picks. Our argument here reminds me of the SAINTS losing out on QB DeShawn Watson to Cleveland. So, the SAINTS yesterday gave QB Jameis Winston $24M/2 yrs to return to New Orleans. Cleveland gave Deshaun $230M, plus they gave Houston a bunch of 1st round picks. The SAINTS got Jameis back at a bargain basement price, and he might just bring us to the Super Bowl.
COMING SOON! I will write something about my two brothers and my dad. What I want to say stems from a post that my brother wrote (linked below). His post inspired me to want to say, for example, that both of the houses that I lived in at my marriages were made possible for me by my dad. Plus, likewise, it is such with the very house that I live in now. Thusly, I think that my dad’s spirit/virtue has passed down from him onto my brothers.
MyIndian name isSitting Wolf. I may have a little Indian blood in my roots, but I also have some French-Cajun ancestors who fought with Sitting Bull at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. They wore cuts from their Mardi Gras Indian costumes and blended in with the Native Indians. My Cajun ancestors were angry about how the Yankees had been carpetbagging in Louisiana after the Civil War. Summarily, the name Sitting Wolf passed down to me likewise to what I explained in my article at DeleryGazette.com entitled King Farouk III. https://delerygazette.org/2020/11/02/king-farouk-iii/
About my ascendency to the throne of the ancient King Farouk Dynasty which I explain in the article, I succeeded Fuad II who was the ninth mystical ruler of the ancient Muhammad Ali Dynasty and am in the lineage of the penultimate King of Mount Zion per the Caribbean Sea.
Sitting Bull posing below with Buffalo Bill, 1885
Buffalo Bill, known for his Wild West Show that featured Native American men and women, struck a partnership with Sitting Bull in 1885 when Sitting Bull performed on his show for several months. Sitting Bull lead his people against the US government at the Battle of Little Bighorn (among other battles).
After he left Bill’s show, the two remained friends that lasted until the end of their respective lives. Sitting Bull ended up going back to his tribe after the show in support of his tribe’s Ghost Dance movement which the United States looked upon as insubordination. The U.S. ended the tribe’s Ghost Dance ceremony with a massacre of the Indians.
Arapaho woman called ‘Pretty Nose’ sitting for her portrait at Fort Keogh, Montana, 1879
A photographer captured this image of Pretty Nose, a woman who was a member of the Arapaho tribe who was a war chief who took part in the Battle of Little Bighorn.
There are those who stated that she was a member of the Cheyenne tribe, but what she wore identified her as Arapaho, thanks to the black, red, and white cuffs adorning her. She lived well into old age, so much so that she was able to see her grandson, Mark Soldier Wolf, become an elder of the Arapaho tribe.
That American war plane looks beautiful flying off of the battleship on its way to mete out some American justice. Where are all of those great American heroes from back then who now would surely not allow these deplorables and sedtionists to drive a stake into the heart of our American justice.
Here below is a video showing my jambalaya and how it turns out. I cook jambalaya, gumbo, shrimp stew and other Creole staples occasionally. See the video below for my jambalaya.
My Cooking is Often Ruff.
Shockingly, I have not poisoned myself yet with my cooking during the pandemic. Normally, in regular times, one of my loved ones (like my #ex-wife, my daughters, my son-in-law, etc.) invites me over for pork chops, steaks, lasagna, grilled ribs, gumbo, shrimp stew and such… on almost a daily basis. Or else, every day I drive to one of my favorite creole/cajun restaurants for #worldfamous food… I cook at home often too if necessary. However, my cooking could gag a maggot; but you “got to do what you got to do.” Oh, I forgot, my sister Karen too brings over/ drops off her fine cuisine sometimes too… or my brother Carl and his wife pick me up every morning for lunch when they are in town. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10221056963626925&id=28059611&sfnsn=mo
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?

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.
January 3, 2021 2156 hrs.
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.
