I am fighting the Monday blahs and trying to get a lot of things done.  I just found out that I don’t have any bubble wrap and I need to mail a painting out soon so time to get to the store.

I am getting some very irritating messages on Facebook that are probably from scammers.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of automatic scammer alarm system?  I realize that is a ridiculous idea but I am trying to think of something funny to cheer me up.

Oh well.  Yoga tonight and Line Dance tomorrow!  Yes!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Usually, on Saturday or Sunday we go out to a fast food place and I always get a chicken sandwich but I never get the fries.  For a number of reasons I don’t eat fried food and if you ever try one of those fries cold you know how bad they taste.  I’ll bet there are other things in them besides potato.

Sometimes I get the baked potato at Wendys.  Saturday, we went to Wendys and I just got the sandwich and when we got home I wished I had gotten the potato.  I was still hungry so I decided to boil a potato.

The potato was a little bigger than I wanted so I asked Clyde if he could eat the rest.  His answer was, do pigs oink?  Okay, stupid question. Let’ move on.

I am on a roll!  I have completed another Skyline Beauty painting and the first stage of another Suggestion painting! I am especially pleased with the new Chicago painting.  The soft modulation of color really drawings the viewer in. I really do live to paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde has been trying a number of natural remedies for his sore hip and knee with no improvement.  The other day I suggested acupuncture.  He said that was a great idea.  Maybe it will hurt so much he will jump up and run after the person that put the pins in and the pain in his body would disappear!  Okay, no acupuncture.

 

None of the remedies have worked because the doctor visit revealed torn cartilage in his knee which is causing the pain there and radiating out to his hip.  The hip is fine.  Just pain by association with an injured knee.  He will have to have an operation.

Yikes!  I wonder how much will be covered by insurance.  A couple of dollars?  We can only hope!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Everyone is on their phone.  The other day Clyde and I were behind a car that was slowly veering off to the left  on a neighborhood rode.  I slowed way down so I wasn’t near the wayward person in case they crashed into a car that was supposed to be in that lane.

A while back I was walking on the Radford Rec track and two girls were walking side by side while staring at their phone.  Not a word between them.

I was told last week that teachers have given up on getting kids to put their phone away.  Now they have some sort of interactive screen that they use with their phones.  Wow!  Glad I retired from teaching.

Anyway, Clyde’s comment was an army from another country could invade ours and no one would notice.  Everyone is on their phone.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

After two days of an irritating virus fight that resulted in yet another purchase of a back up system, I was again complaining to Clyde about the aggravations of living on a computer.

He said he wanted to kill them.

They aren’t alive.

They are more alive than we are.

Are you saying the Matrix is coming true?  Computers are in charge while people just dream their lives?

Been true.  We are already in it.

Uh oh!  That’s a scary thought.

I am real excited to be back to my Suggestions Series!  It is great to just react to the paint and see if any recognizable forms show up.  My first one, Serpent Swirl, has already gotten over 100 hits and a lot of attention on Instagram!  The originals of these paintings are not available for purchase but small and large prints are!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still having a lot of trouble with his hip so it is off to the doctor next week.  I hope he can get some help.  I am so glad he is cutting back on sugar since he could stand to lose a few pounds.  There are a lot of fattening things I avoid because I know I could easily put on twenty or thirty pounds if I ate them.

Clyde laughs at the thought that I could get fat.  He says if a calorie shows up I beat it over the head with a brick.  Ha ha. Calorie counting has kept the weight off me my entire adult life.

If every one ate a balanced diet, exercised and counted calories we would not have an obesity problem in this country.  My sermon for the day.  No one listens to me, but it is true.

I am very happy with the second stage of Lincoln. It may be the last stage.  I will spend some time tweaking it but it probably won’t change that much.  I have include both stages here and both stages are on my website for prints.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before many times, I am not that great with computers but I am determined to learn and improve my skills.  There are a number of things I can do to increase my audience for my artwork but when I try, I seem to go around in circles asking the computer and others how to do things that seem so simple.

Since Clyde has a computer job I ask him for advice.  Right now I am trying to improve my SEO.  When I asked him to help me with my SEO he said why do you need short eared owls?

Okay, what else would a bird watcher that does not have a website, is not on twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc. say?  I had that one coming.

I am taking a short break from my Skyline Beauty series to work on a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  I like to make portraits of people I admire and hope to paint many more.  I am real pleased with the first stage of this painting!  It will be in color but the first black and white stage is captivating!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I said last time, we really are wrapped up in our computers these days but when the first thing you hear when you wake up is a sleep commercial character saying she needs an answer to her email before you wake up, you know things are getting out of hand!

My son turns on the TV in the morning and that line greeted me as I got out of bed.  Yikes!!!!

I told Clyde and he said it is probably in his spam folder and he ignored it.  Good cover!

I saw this joke somewhere online.  Sleep is for people without the internet.  Oh no!!!!!! Time to step away from the computer!
