I am real excited about starting a soft pastel portrait!  It has been a long time since I worked in pastels.  They are a mess but I don’t have to clean brushes or a palette after each session which is great!  I started today without a mask but will put one on the next time.  That stuff gets in the air and practically asphyxiates me.  You have to really love Art to put up with all the problems.  I certainly do!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned a number of times before, we are not at all happy with the digital TV takeover that forced us to get cable or never see PBS again.   We are not about to pay for cable for all three sets, so the TV in our bedroom has a mind of its own and sometimes has a signal but oftentimes does not have a signal and no stations come in.  We have been told various ridiculous things regarding the lack of signal.

My favorite is the amount of leaves on the trees affects the reception.  Lots of leaves right now so nothing comes in most of the time.  Clyde has another theory.  When a chicken clucks in China, our TV won’t come in.  Lots of clucking right now.

I contacted a company in China today that keeps on stealing my images and selling prints of them.  I had lawyers try to get compensation for me but they were not able to do anything about it in spite of the US office the company has.  I didn’t mention clucking chickens to them.  Just wish they would stop stealing my paintings.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have switched to organic food for the most part.  It won’t keep us from dying but I think our chances of getting cancer from pesticides is greatly reduced.  Not afraid to die.  Terrified of cancer treatment.  Anyway, I bought an ice cream and yogurt machine because I can’t find organic frozen yogurt in the store.

There are great selections for organic ice cream but none for frozen yogurt.  Since I make our bread now, I didn’t really want to do this but I thought I would give it a try.  These devices are great but there is still a lot of work involved, especially with the yogurt maker.

The yogurt has to soak for 2-4 hours on a cloth and then ingredients have to be cooked on a stove and frozen over night.  The machine just kind of shakes it around and then, of course, there is clean up. Anyway, most of the ice cream selections are twice the number of calories of what is in the store.

I tried the lowfat strawberry yogurt and am not happy at all.  I guess it has to be eaten right after it is made.  I froze it and now it takes a chisel to get it out of the container.  Yuck!  The fruit is crunchy with ice and I don’t like the taste at all. I have to leave it out for a full hour before it is soft enough to get out of the box.  Can’t heat it up.

Clyde said I should put it on a rack and buy a bunsen burner.

Ha ha.  I think I will take my chances with store bought frozen yogurt , smart alec.

There is a great joke on the internet about cultured bacteria.  The two bacteria are discussing different operas and which one is the best.  Love it!

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…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

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

Okay, the guy that is going to take care of our lawn that really does look like it needs a hay baler still has not showed up.

In Wednesday’s  blog I said I had mentioned to Clyde that it is looking scary out there and he said maybe Big Foot it lurking behind the grass.  I said I thought I saw him.

Yesterday he said maybe Big Foot could do the job.

Today I asked him if Big Foot was going to chew the grass down and he said he texted him.  Waiting for Big Foot to mow our lawn.  How many people can say that?

Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde’s knee is hurting less and less while our grass looks like it needs a baler.  He doesn’t want me to do it.  Not sure why.  I think I could get it done but he would rather hire someone until his knee is better.

He called me this morning to see if his lunch was still in the fridge.  It was.  Then he mentioned the tree guys  are coming today to chop down some trees.

He also mentioned he was getting someone to mow the lawn.  I said good, it’s scary out there.  He laughed and said maybe Big Foot is lurking behind the grass.

I think I saw him! Yikes!

Saw a cute Big Foot t-shirt on Pinterest.  Big Foot doesn’t believe in you, either.

Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde was able to walk up a flight of stairs yesterday without pain!  Yes! His knee is improving so I think I should be able to get a funny out of him.

I told him I was completely dry in regards to funnies.  How do I get wet again?

He said I should go outside in our present deluge, go on down to the river and jump in and tell my jokes to the fish.

Okay, that was a weird one, but it is all I got on a drizzly Monday so I took it.

Great heaven joke on the internet!  A guy is trying to check in but St. Peter tells him he almost made it, but those fish stories and pictures on Facebook. Really?
