My Deeper Social Media

Below I explain my deep love for old-school movies and pictures.. Plus, Here is a link which I am trying to embed here. I am searching for words to describe the precarious state of the world today. Russia’s evil leader, Vladimir Putin, has the world on the brink of Armageddon. You can click the link (in the meantime) until I figure out how to embed it and what I want to say.

May I say… ?

Sophia Vergara is #1 in my heart, and #1 in the world as most beautiful.

Sofia Vergara
In the clip below is one of my favorite couples in cinematic romances.

Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are here in an iconoclastic scene from Casablanca.

Of all the gin joints…
Thank God for the channels that provide us movies from the Golden Age.

GAZETTE (July) — How can this baby have the same exact smile as her mom’s. I will search to see if her mom has any later pictures of her baby. I want to see if her daughter still looks like her “mini-me.”

Mini-me; mom.

Ferdie has some words about Jesus.
Ferdie said something at the below link about Jesus:

Jesus Christ walking on water.

The story of this Civil War couple touched me.
He died at Battle of Bull Run.

Two weeks after his last love letter to his wife during the Civil War, this man was killed at the Battle of Bull Run. All of the lives lost in making this country what it is, it is a sin and a shame that insurrectionist, traitor, seditionist Donald Trump is perched to announce in July his candidacy for President of the United States. Trump has served no penalty, has answered no questions to the Justice Department, has gone completely “Scott free” over the January 6th insurrection.

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

Hallelujah!!!

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.

Ferdie Frozencup

I need a second take on Sidney.

More coming!

I want to write about the turn of the New Year celebrations and the aftermath that I have been enjoying. New Year’s Eve started out with the arrival of guests at my daughter’s house. I will write more. I have to take a few minutes to reflect on the first days of 2022 for me.

Note Early Years

Should we tell MAGA Christians that this is the true face of Jesus, produced by computer generated synthetic intelligence — based upon information compiled about him? My question is: How accurate is the science?

Jesus Christ.

Next, Seeing my high school yearbook picture (second picture below) brought back many memories. I am at the top, left in the picture. However, before going there, I will write about a funny incident about watermelons (first picture below). For my job, I was on a mission at Cape Kennedy working some last minute ‘touches” on the Space Shuttle before a launch. During our stay at Cape Canaveral, my job gave each one of us employees a condo with nice, large kitchens and refrigerators. In the meantime… (to be continued later).

A Watermelon story!

Meanwhile, back to my yearbook picture for now… 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.

My senior yearbook.

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 correct ears (their 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!

My opinion is that James Franco looks like James Dean.

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.

Question, A RETWEET: When it comes to women, what would I prefer? A teenie bit of #romance, and a pocket full of #money; or hot romance, and my money flying out of my pockets willie-nillie? My answer…

Drewwwwww!!

Shroud of Turin

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I plan to study more about the Shroud of Turin. If this is truly the face of Jesus, we should embrace the magnitude and importance of the image. We need to look into the eyes of the Lord and pray for his hand to reach out with all of its power and virtue to touch this wavering world of today.

I read daily the headlines and watch the images on TV. I feel like the world is spinning away toward THE perfect storm. Who do you think can reach out His hand with mercy to save this mess?

The Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin

Here is my prayer for today: Dear Lord, please reach out and touch me with your virtue today. Show us in the world a sign that there is something better, that there is a higher power than this mess that we see today. Please remember the words, “I touched the hem of His garment and His BLOOD has made me whole.”

The face of Jesus.

The face of Jesus.

If you want to hear a beautiful song which explains what can happen when you touch the hem of the Lord’s garment, listen to Tata Vega and Andrae Crouch here. They sing beautifully about what the power of the blood of Jesus can do.
