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.

I put my hat on to take this picture. I am watching Giants vs. Philly.

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.

Mardi Gras Weekend Next Week

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — If you are not already packing your suitcase in preparation to head to New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2015, you need to make up your mind quickly. Next weekend is Mardi Gras weekend. This weekend I am waiting on my daughter to tell me what 3 parades she and her crew are marching in on this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I might already be tired by next weekend. This picture below which I saw this morning has me absolutely ready to go to the French Quarter for some Mardi Gras, Big Easy food.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MARDI GRAS?

Ready for Fat Tuesday?

Ready for Fat Tuesday?

BOSCOVILLE (Ferdie Werdie) — I try to be politically correct so that the ladies on ‪#Twitter and #‎Facebook‬ do not get upset with me. However, I cannot be silent about the female referee in the #LosAngelesClippers vs. #ClevelandCavaliers game that just ended. I do not believe in #female referees in the ‪#‎NBA‬. There ya’ go; I know you ladies are gettin’ mad now. The game was a ‪#‎bitchFEST‬ tonight. I think that the girl referee threw 6 or 7 technical fouls just on the Clippers, changing the whole “tenor” of the game. If a Clipper just looked at her “hard” or rather roughly, she called a technical, with one Clipper even being ejected from the game. She should be home cooking or washing dishes, not on an @NBA court. Sorry, ladies. Do not be mad! I’m just saying!

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Also, I am sure that many fans are still following the news about Bobbi Kristina Brown. She had opened her eyes twice, and showed slight improvement, according to earlier reports. Of course, the world knows that she was found unconscious last weekend in a bathtub very similarly to how her mother, Whitney Houston, was in 2012. The circumstances are eerie!! As of this writing, she is still in an induced coma. Her family had been advised to expect the worst, and reports are leaking in that the final word is imminent.

Whitney and Bobbi.

Whitney and Bobbi.

In the latest about her condition,

Previous reports were coming out that Bobbi Kristina was showing signs of life. Requests for prayers from her family and friends (#PrayforBK on Twitter) may have been heeded from BK’s many fans. I have seen many tweets and posts about people around the world praying for Bobbi Kristina.

Here in this tweet Pete Carroll tries to explain his bone-headed play in the Super Bowl.

Why, Warren? Why?
