Lots of work to do on my new pastel portrait of Alan and Sarah!  It will take a long time but I have been wanting to do one for a long time and I finally got a good photo of them to work from.

So I will put on my mask and get to it like Aunt Bea said to Otis on The Andy Griffith show when she was acting as his warden in their home!  Great show!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Not sure, but I think I have mentioned before that people have been telling me for decades that I have lost weight.  I am the same weight I was when I got married with the same measurements so I have often wondered why people are always saying that to me.  I guess I have withered with age.

Just wish they wouldn’t say it with such a big smile.  That implies I needed to lose weight which I don’t think is true.  According to the doctor’s chart my weight is exactly what it should be.  My BMI is on the low end of normal.

Now Clyde is another matter. He is trying to lose some weight to take the pressure off the knee that was injured.  He is losing about a pound a week which is fast enough.  Anyway, he recently received a comment on his weight loss that I have never heard before.  A friend said his clothes are growing on him.

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Presents Stage Two and Keeping Zippy…

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!

I was determined today to have a good Wednesday.  I don’t know what it is about Wednesday’s, but things seem to just go wrong.  I am pleased to report this evening that I had a good Wednesday and hope the evening is good, too.

Lots to do but the glasses strand with little tiny fake pearls did not burst all over the kitchen floor and no rants over technology, though the rants can happen any day of the week.  I won’t get into all those other Wednesday irritations that usually occur.  Beautiful day!

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is using weights now to strengthen his knee.  I was real pleased to find an adjustable set so he can take it slow.  Still not getting much humor from him right now. I asked him if he had a funny for my blog and he said he was too pooped out, popped up, blowed up, and busted to come up with a joke.

Well, I guess that is a writer with a sore knee’s way of saying nothing right now.  Saw a great surgery joke online.  In the middle of an operation the doctor tells the nurse to go to Surgery.com and click on the Are you totally lost icon.  The patient hasn’t been put under yet.  YIKES!

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.

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.

It is great to see Clyde getting around without the walker!  His knee still hurts but he is walking, mostly without assistance.  He will see the doctor Monday and hopefully go back to work on Tuesday or Wednesday.

It is nice having him around but I am getting tired of being a caretaker.  It really is hard to put a sock on someone.  I am getting the hang of it.  Oh well. It is a beautiful day and maybe I can get into the studio for a while.

Cheers!
