I am so pleased to back to oils!  Been walking with Clyde and getting Spring inspirations!  The first one is a beautiful New River view from Riverview Park.  I have the first layer done and anxious to get to the second.  Love oil paint!  I am also going to start a pastel portrait soon.  So much to do!  So little time.

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?

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.

I am really on the tread mill lately.  Like my father-in-law would say, I am like a three legged bear.  Making a lot of tracks and getting nowhere.  Hopefully I can get most of what I need to do finished and still have time to paint.

I wish painting could be number one but art promotion is number one.  So much time on the internet I am beginning to think there are invisible chords coming from the screen that are wrapped around my fingers.

Puppet to a machine.  Oh well, I can cut the strings some of the time but they just seem to reattach themselves.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Tomorrow is the day!  Knee operation and 24 hour patient care duty for me.  Not looking forward to this.  I saw a cute joke on the internet about age.

I’m not old.  I just need some WD-40.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just put a little of that on your knee instead of costly surgery?  Oh well.  Clyde bites the pain bullet tomorrow.  I bite the nurse bullet and we both bite the finance bullet.

I wish I could shoot old age without dying.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Thursday we will be checking Clyde into the hospital for his knee operation.  Not looking forward to that.  I will be on call around the clock when he comes home.  A friend told me yesterday that her knee surgery helped but now her knee is bothering her again.  Ouch!  That is not good news.

My brother mentioned to me that the third leading cause of death is medical mistakes.  Thanks for that one bro!  I used to worry about the risks of anesthesia but Clyde was under for three hours when his wrist was operated on so I am confident he will be okay.  Found a great free clip art cartoon that we can all relate to.

Cheers!

Beautiful cold day.  Clyde, of course, has already been out checking on wildlife.  He saw a bald eagle at Bisset Park.  I think I will finish up the taxes.  Yuck.  How do all these things get in the way of painting?  It’s a conspiracy cooked up by the paper work people that shove piles of documents at you every time you wake up.  Yuck!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

So far, so good!  Clyde is able to sleep without aspirin.  The surgery is on the sixteenth and Insurance will cover it.  Well, we know how that goes. Big co-pay to start with and then a bunch of bills later, but a lot of it will be taken care of by the Insurance company.  Yes!

He still has pain but can sleep on his side so he doesn’t blow a hole in the roof with his snoring.  That helps me out!  Two nights ago he woke me up and I asked him if he was going to have to take tylenol.

He said no but he may get to that point.

Is there a line?

What?

You said you may get to that point.  The fastest way between two points is a straight line. Maybe you can use a line to go from the point of pain to the point of no pain.

Big groan from Clyde.

Okay, I am not as good with the word play as he is but I do try.

Yes!  I dodged another high costing medical procedure!  My doctor says the pulsing and constricted ear problem is due to the extreme changes in weather!  No ridiculously high MRI for me!  I will just keep on yawning and ignore the pulsing.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde will have his knee operation on the sixteenth.  He can not take any form of aspirin until then and I am concerned that he will not be able to sleep.  He can take tylenol but I doubt that will help much.  It never helps me with any kind of pain. He says the pain is at its worst when he is lying down.

I told him that maybe he will have to try to sleep standing up like a horse and he said that we could glue him to the wall and see how that works out.  I don’t think glue on his skin is a good idea.

Maybe we can use wall paper paste and seal him in the way Lucy thought she sealed Ethel in on one of the I Love Lucy episodes.

 

Let’s hope Clyde does as well as the cat below.  Public domain kitty. I am no fool.  I am fighting image thieves all the time.

Well, today was a first.  I am getting more forgetful with age but I have never left the house to mail a painting without the painting.  Argh!  I got to the post office to pick up my mail and just as I was about to go to the shipping service outlet I use, I realized the painting was still in the house.  Yikes!  Beam me up Scottie!  I don’t know where I am any more.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Years ago I was trying to come up with a name for my studio.  I asked Clyde and he thought Towhee Hill would be a good name since there are so many Towhees around here and our house is on a hill.  It is a beautiful bird so I decided that would be a good name.

Lately, both of us have noticed a lot of Towhees at the computer room window where I spend so much time promoting my artwork.

Yesterday I noticed one that just seemed to be staring in the window as I was finishing the work to send out a painting to Montana.

Clyde thinks the bird is looking for his cut. After all, I did use his name.

I thought that was pretty funny and here is another bird joke on the internet.

Irritable owl syndrome.  Back off jerk!
