We are back from The Peaks of Otter and I am under a pile of work.  Yuck!  The weather is gorgeous.  I can see it from my window, well, sort of.  We still have some paper covering most of it to try to ward off birds that keep banging into their reflection. 

Still, I know it is a great day and maybe I will see it up close after I sort through everything I have to do.  Onwards and upwards and then out the doorwards.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 We got away for a few days.  Since Clyde’s knee is still bothering him we decided to visit the beautiful Peaks of Otter resort!  What a great place!  I have done many paintings of the Peaks! 

Anyway, since we were only going to be gone for a few days we didn’t ask a neighbor to check on our house and phone messages.  There isn’t a lot of valuable stuff to steal in our house so we don’t worry about that. 

Clyde said, if they take the computer, fine. 

After a pause he added we couldn’t get that lucky. 

Considering how it has sucked up so much of my time and I have been known to threaten to re-locate it to the ground outside the window I can see why he said that. 

We had a great time! Clyde’s laptop had so many things wrong with it that I couldn’t get any work done! 

Now that is a vacation!

This time of the year I often take pictures for painting ideas.  Most of my paintings are interpretive works from photographs that I take but sometimes I get one that I prefer to present  in my Creative photograph series. 

 

Recently I took some pictures of a Great Spangled Friterally and here is one I decided to post in my wildlife photographs album.    I have not met the medium I don’t like!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 Unlike a lot of people, especially kids, I love broccoli!  I look forward to Tuesday night when we get Chinese and I always get a broccoli dish.  Actually, to  be more accurate, I always get chicken and broccoli but it is embarrassing that I always get the same thing. 

Nothing is as good as chicken and broccoli.  Anyway, sometimes the broccoli is fantastic and sometimes it is a little less then fantastic and I am getting to the point that I can tell by looking before the first bite. 

I told Clyde I must be some sort of broccoli psychic.  He said maybe I am a broccoli whisperer.  I think that is a bit much. 

Oh well, there are a lot of great broccoli jokes on the internet.  I love the one where the broccoli says I don’t like you either!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 Well, it is that time of year again.  Another contribution to my Ant Chronicles.  Last year wasn’t very bad and I am hoping for a good summer with little ant activity. 

We have tried every ant cure in the entire world and still see ants.  So far I keep seeing one in the bathroom which is weird. I asked Clyde why there is only one. 

He said it is scouting the place out before getting on a horn and calling in the troops.  I don’t doubt it. 

Saw a cute joke on the internet about ants.  Why was the little ant confused?  All his uncles were ants.  Love it!

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.

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.
