Mr. Preston, Man About Town

Click to return Home Page. Photo of Bobby Matherne by Del Calvin Preston, that dashing man about town, can be seen almost any weekend in the French Quarter. Letís listen to his own words in the way he would describe himself.

ďI look like Alvis Presley with a blonde flimsy on each arm in my white tuxedo with the red cumberlin. I always wear a whiff of Stencil Cologne to let you know itís really me. You might see me driving down Bourbon Street in my red Z with the automatic transom, invitation wood dashboard, and Paretti radial tires, as I make sexual dentures at the girls.

"Once I was on a golf course in the Bahamas wearing my favorite white panoramic hat where I saw three hole-in-oneís made in one day. I said, ĎThat should go into the World Book of Genesis!í Thatís a book I read often, being the good Passapaterian that I am. When I need advice, however, I look to Ann Landries for help. Like the time I almost got salamander poisoning from eating undercooked poetry - I really should have gone to my nurse-doctor instead. Well, you canít have your bread without your jelly, too! Anybody who knows me like a brick would have to agree that I always have a question to any answer.

ďMy favorite Christmas song is Always in a Manger and I love to give a bouquet of baby breasts to my girl when we go dancing. I also love fishing but once I got upset by the sight of some green allergy growing in the bottom of the boat and I stopped going. Iím also afraid of crickets, spiders, snakes, and I know from personal experience that birds make honey and bees sting.

"Once while playing Trilogy Pursuits, someone asked me a question I didnít know the answer to, and in frustration I foundered my private parts and said I was a blind victim of innocence.

"But Iím always interested in others. For example once when it was too windy in the room, I asked Chuck to raise the window down to block the draft. I am very respectful of othersí sensibilities and always call them ĎMissí or ĎMisterí.

"If I ever should make a fort in public I might distract everyone by saying that my shoes are untied and begin eyelitting them. Once while camping I was so afraid of getting chitters on me that I began to breathe in very quickly and started hibernating right there in front of everyone.

"In addition I have one bountiful spot: my love of animals - that is except for dogs with dirty breath.

ďWith all my faults everyone loves me because of my personal magnification. I may not be as famous as Robert Nero, Ben Shaw, Bugs Boney, or Alvis but what I have is tile and thatís what counts.Ē
