Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 I don’t have a funny from The Word Man today but I found a good one on the internet for the Fourth that sounds like something he would say! 

Why did the duck say bang?  Because he thought he was a firequacker. 

Don’t groan too loud. 

Today we celebrate!

I am so pleased to be back to working with a brush!  I have been spending a long time working on a portrait of my son and his girlfriend in pastels.  I love pastels because it is such a direct medium and the texture is like nothing else, but they do take a long time to build up. 

I am pleased so far and will begin the final stage soon but right now I want to work with a brush.  I have a lot of ideas for more oil paintings of The Peaks of Otter that I want to get to right after I complete the second stage of Paris Joy!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am so proud of Clyde!  He has lost twelve pounds and has about eight to go.  As I have said before, a well-balanced diet plus calorie counting is the best way to lose weight and maintain weight loss. 

No, you can’t eat huge slabs of pie or eat mounds of french fries unless you work it off the way our ancestors did every day with farm work or similar exercise. 

But you can have things you like to eat.  He has no complaints and when he loses all the weight he can up his calorie count to a maintenance number. 

We were talking about all the other awful ways of losing weight, including Weight Watchers which is actually a great program but who wants to attend meetings? 

Clyde said you can’t be a Weight Watchers Anonymous like Alcoholics Anonymous.  Everybody knows.

Your gut will not set you free!

I am determined to get out today and go to the lake.  I just wish it were a lot hotter.  I’m sure that water is like ice water with all this cool weather.  I will get in.  I have learned to take a very cold shower with my bathing suit on and then the water is not such a shock to the system. 

My guys are at work so I will go alone.  That’s okay.  I have never had much of a problem being alone.  I think artists tend to be that way so they can be crazy without people mentioning it all the time. 

I’m a happy wacko and I don’t need to be straightened out. 

The temperature is rising.  Yea!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde and I have been married for about 100 years I am starting to worry about his longevity.  I can’t imagine life without The Word and Bird Man. 

No marriage is perfect and there are times I want to set fire to all his stuff in the Computer room but we do get along real well and I hope we die together. 

When I was a kid I liked to read Greek myths and there was one about a woman being granted one wish and she wished she and her husband would die together.  I thought that was a great wish. 

I told Clyde that he had to last as long as me because I didn’t want anyone else. 

He replied, “Why, do you think you will do worse?  Did I set the bar that low? 

Now that was a fun retort.  He keeps me laughing!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have said many times, I love to laugh and I try to have something funny on my blog.  My father was hilarious and he always ended a conversation with a joke.  He knew how to live!

Clyde cracks me up all the time and I depend on him for funnies.  I didn’t have anything for today so I called him up and asked him if he had a funny.  Not today.  He said his hurt knee has kicked his funny bone right off.

Even when he can’t think of anything he comes up with something!  Love it!  Here is one I saw on the internet that Clyde can relate to.

A doctor is talking to the Gingerbread man about his hurt knee.

Have you tried icing it?

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still considering all the phobias I have and I mentioned my knee phobia to a friend and she agreed and added hip phobia.  At a certain age you realize that exercise and keeping your weight down may not be enough.

Clyde is still recovering from knee surgery and I am worried about my knees.  Oh well, to quote a favorite movie, Strictly Ball Room, a life lived in fear is half lived.  I wonder if I am even at a quarter lived with all my fears.

Saw a good funny phobia today.  I have a phobia of german sausage. Yes, I fear the wurst.  Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Crossing Her Fingers and Squatters Rights…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Fourth day of the new year and we are working on an insurance claim for our wind damaged roof.  Our heating system was making a funny noise last night.  I hope we won’t be calling about that.  The noise happened a while back and I called for help and, of course, there was no noise when the repairman arrived, just the aggravation of paying him to come and check so this time I am waiting for it to actually break before I call.  Here’s hoping that does not happen.  The roof problem is enough!chrchsnowscenesmall-1

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Insurance is always a hit or miss thing as we all know.  We are in the process of trying to get our Homeowners Insurance to pay for the wind damage on our roof.  The roof needs to be replaced.  I hope we can get them to come through after all these years of paying them but I have a feeling they will claim it is just wear and tear over the years.

Clyde had a great comment on this situation.  They will probably claim they have proof we are squatters and don’t even own the home.  Love it!  Just a joke.  No offense to insurance agents.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has a Drip and Scraping off Paint…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Second day of the new year and there is a puddle in my studio.  Yikes!  A roof repair man came over and informed us that our roof shingles are 20 year shingles so we have been living on borrowed time.  Time to fork out the big bucks for a new roof.  Not the way I wanted to start 2017, but that’s life.  Cheers!  I am going to have to say that a bunch of times to myself.  Drip, drip, drip.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Painting can be such an aggravating experience.   What I want and what I get are not always the same thing.  Actually, as I told my students, you never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you will get close.

I may have mentioned before something a teacher said to me that I think about a lot.

Scraping off paint is a good thing.  It means you are learning something.  The other day I asked Clyde what was the most important thing an artist learns when she scrapes paint off. He replied, not to bang your head against the wall?  No.  The very high cost of paint.

Here’s to a new year and hopefully some great sales.  I live to paint but I can’t take them with me and oil paint is very expensive.
