I am really in the art wrestling stage with my latest painting from The Peaks of Otter resort.  It almost hit the trashcan stage but I managed to rescue it this morning.  Now it is finally coming along.  As I have said many times, if I could get want I want out of a painting without some aggravation it would be boring.  This one has been ANYTHING but boring!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that the house next door has been empty for quite a while, the ground hogs have moved in.  They live under the old shed and visit our back yard all the time to get produce from our fruit trees.  They have an under the fence tunnel that they use to go back and forth.  When they are not taking our fruit they are sunning themselves in the empty house’s backyard.

I see them all the time when I park. They give me dirty looks and I dare you to do anything about our theft looks constantly.  I am starting to consider them to be Varmint Cong like in Caddy Shack and it is really tempting to light fire crackers under the shed when they are not looking but we will figure out another way.

Clyde said they probably could care less about their shadows but they are always looking for ours while they steal us blind.  I think Varmint Cong is a good name for them.

I meant to get this post out this morning but I had so many other things to do and then the lake called my name and I had to answer!  Great day to swim and I always remember what Charles Schultz said about seasons this time of the year. 

Summers fly. Winters walk.  I would add summers get rained on a lot, too. 

I am determined to work around the rain this summer and get some time at Claytor Lake.   I hope I can convince Clyde to come out Thursday evening.  He isn’t much for swimming but there are always birds to watch!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Like a lot of people,  I have trouble grasping certain scientific theories.  I found Math and Science to be rather difficult.  I could do it but it always required a lot of effort learning something I was not interested in. 

Do not misunderstand.  I am glad I was required to take Algebra and I know that we all use Algebra and Calculus every day, just not specific formulas.  They are incorporated into the technology all around us. 

The theory that really blows my mind is time travel which I don’t think is at all possible.  If it happened, it happened.  If it hasn’t happened, it hasn’t happened. 

I saw a great joke about time travel on the internet. 

Interested in time travel?  Meet here last Thursday at 7:00.  I asked Clyde about it and he said he wanted to go but he was too early.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I get a ridiculous number of scams practically every day.  I am always a little worried when I see that I have messages on Messenger.  I should be glad to see that  I have messages but I get a lot of scams  so I am very wary about what is there. 

Today I received an email thanking me for ordering something that I didn’t order.  The thank you made my mind reel with sarcastic replies. 

It is tempting to answer the email with,

Thank you for sending me another scam!  I have only received five today and three of them shut down my computer.  I don’t know what happened to the other two! 

A few weeks ago one of them blew up the computer and it fell through the floor after one click on a link which is why we have a new computer!  We can’t wait to see what happens next! 

Keep those scams coming!

The Word Man and I are looking forward to the book launch of Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse on June 16th at Christ Lutheran!  His launch is one of a series of literature readings that are hosted by Christ Lutheran. 

Clyde came up with the name Rough Draft Coffee House.  We celebrate creativity in a coffee house atmosphere. 

The name that Clyde came up with goes great with a writers joke I saw on the internet this morning.  Why are writers always cold?  They are surrounded by rough drafts!  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still griping about Towhees in Wildwood Park.  To think, I named my studio after that beautiful, but irritating bird.  I really get tired of hearing, “Drink your tea”, over and over again on our walks.

I asked Clyde if it had another song.  He said it didn’t have one.  It was a one-hit wonder long ago and is trying desperately to make a come back.  I guess I just have to learn to love it. 

I found a joke that applies to this bird. 

Why did the bird go to the hospital?  To get tweetment. 

Maybe if a Towhee got tweetment it could come up with another song.  LOL!

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!
