Rain, rain go away!  We are having a monsoon right now in Radford.  My Line Dance troupe had to cancel a performance last night.  I was looking forward to that one since it is at the old train station in Pulaski and there are vendors that I usually buy from while we are waiting to perform.  Oh well.  I think most of the vendors cancelled too.  We need the rain but we don’t need a weekly deluge.  Hope to see the sun soon!

 

I have decided to take my head out of the sand and interact more with other artists so here is a link to an interesting article on an artist that is really into brushwork like I am! Check out the great artwork of Winston Torr!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes it really is the little things that are super irritating.  I am trying to compose a piano piece just for fun.  I have been playing the piano since I was twelve and it never occurred to me to write music but I thought I would  give it a try.  I can’t believe how slow it is going.  I have always been good at reading music but now that I am trying to write it I can’t remember all the different symbols for the notes in the bass which is crazy, since I read them every day without any problem.

Also, my pencil keeps breaking and our electric sharpener is jammed and the little plastic one just keeps breaking the pencil.  One of these days I will finish my amateur attempt at composing and get it copyrighted.  I’m sure someone will want to steal it.  I would put LOL but Clyde thinks it is a nice piece of music so you never know. He has spent quite a bit of time studying music and has written a few pieces that I like.

I saw a cute pencil joke the other day.  Knock knock,  Who’s there?  A pencil.  A pencil who?  Never mind.  It’s pointless.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yes!  Our third lawn mowing contact showed up and did a great job!  He had to take down part of the fence to get his huge mower into our back yard but he put it right back up.  Finally!  I am no longer scared that I will be attacked by deer ticks if I walk in my yard and Big Foot is no where in sight!  He can’t hide behind our grass now.

On to more crazy stuff from the Word Man.  Last night we were talking about bumper stickers.  Neither one of us uses them.  Not sure why.  We just don’t, but I do like to read funny ones.  The word bumper prompted some word play from Clyde.  What do you call a lazy, no-good cat?  A bumpurr.

Blue Ridge Parkway Presents Stage Two and Keeping Zippy…

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Be sure to check out my Special Promotions at the bottom of the blog that end Sunday!

Well, I am finally ready to finish this blog and send it out.  So many things to do today that it got lost in the shuffle.  I am pleased to present the second stage of my latest New River painting! Prints are not available just yet but I wanted to show it.  I am pleased with this stage and will probably not change it much in the final version.

 

Riverview Spring   Original 12″ x 9″ Oil painting $236

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A while back I talked about our awful mouse that kept clicking off and ate batteries like they were made of cheese. Then Clyde bought a great mouse that I named Zippy, the wonder mouse!  It zooms all over the screen, hardly ever needs a battery and still works like new!  Yesterday we spent most of the day, with help, setting up a new computer, printer, and scanner.

The Radford Public Library can breath a sigh of relief.  I won’t be getting prints there anymore and complaining about how dark they are.  I told one of the clerks and she probably told the others so they could do a celebration dance.  Just kidding! Well, who knows?

Anyway, the new stuff is great, except for the mouse. It is slow, awkward, and I just don’t like it so I turned it off and turned Zippy back on.  Great to have an excellent little rodent!  If Zippy ever acts up we will get Zippy 2!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working with a sore knee and not joking around much.  I think the funny barometer will rise as the pain decreases.

Anyway, a funny thing happened to me on Facebook the other day that reminded me of a favorite show, The Middle.  A friend sent me a message proclaiming his love for me.  He is always complimenting my artwork so I didn’t want to be harsh.  I thanked him and said I didn’t think he should be saying that to a married woman.

He apologized, said he was married too, and had been hitting the moonshine.  On a favorite episode of The Middle, Frankie tells Mike after a great party that she would like to invite all their friends over for a party.

She sent them emails that night and in the morning when she sobered up and realized she didn’t really want to have a big party, she said, “We need a breathalyzer on that computer!”  Love it! I think that Facebook friend needs one, too.  That wasn’t the first time he had sent me a strange message.

I am going to see the doctor again today about this awful pulsing and tinnitus.  Yesterday it was so much better I thought it was gone and then at 9:00p.m. it got real bad.  I took some Sudafed and woke up this morning with all that noise and I don’t mean All that Jazz like the movie.

I like jazz but this Pulsatile Tinnitus has got to go!  I’m not sure if I should be worried.  You know how the internet is.  It can be nothing or something very serious.  Oh well.  The doctor will know what to do.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, now we know why the peanut butter was eaten off a trap and then later a mouse was caught.  There were two and we got the second one today.  We think they were a couple of brothers, Mo and Schmo.

Mo figured out how to get the food without getting caught and then Schmo came along and was not so lucky.  Anyway, Mo must have slipped up today or there are more!  Oh no!

Beautiful day and I could not be more behind in my work.  Lots of distractions today including two plumber visits.  Our water bill is four times what it should be so the plumber was called to see if there is some sort of leak.

He said no so I guess we will have a city official out to verify what he said.  Then I asked him to fix the little spray nozzle on out kitchen sink.  When he left it sprayed me when I turned on the faucet.  I forget about it twice before the plumber came back.  Glad he came back.  I was tired of getting sprayed. Visit two did the job.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We didn’t catch the mouse yesterday and found out that one of the traps is broken.  When Clyde got up the working trap had a lot of evidence of a mouse around it and the peanut butter was gone.  The mouse had managed to lick it off and not get caught. Clyde said that mouse must have a college degree.

Well, when I got up and looked the trap was upside down with the mouse dead underneath it.  I told Clyde and he said it may have a college degree but it must have failed How to Avoid a Mouse Trap 101.  We figured it just wanted to make sure it got all the peanut butter.

Anyway,  bye bye mouse!  If you had just used the Have a Heart trap you would still be around to enjoy this pretty day!

Clyde is getting better and hopes to get to work tomorrow.  I don’t know.  The knee is still a pain in the knee so I am not sure he can drive for thirty minutes and then put in eight hours.  Oh well.  I guess he can claim victory and retreat after a few hours.  We will see!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Once again we have a visitor we don’t want.  Lots of nasty evidence of a mouse in the kitchen.  The first one we caught with a Have a Heart trap and Clyde took it down to the river.

The second one was caught in the same trap but managed to get out so we used the killer kind.  I was hoping we could get the third one with the Have a Heart trap, but no luck so we will use the killer kind again.

In this case, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing for this mouse.  It has successfully figured out how to avoid the Have a Heart trap so it will pay for that knowledge.  As Clyde says, the more you know the more it comes back to bite you!  Look out Smart Alec!  You will be bit this time.
