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.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Looking for the Funny Side and They leave a Message….

I am still griping away about the noise in my ear but I don’t think I will cut if off like Van Gogh did.  Pulsatile tinnitus is aggravating but I can stand a constant noise.

Intermittent noises really get to me- like the robin outside my window that keeps banging against its reflection to chase off the robin in the window.  I guess I am going to have to cover the window so the bird can’t see it. Not right now. Studio time is next.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that I am one of many with Pulsatile Tinnitus that isn’t going away I am looking on the funny side.  I saw a great cartoon about it.

A woman tells her doctor that she has a ringing in her ear.  When she ignores it, it leaves a message.  Clyde added and when she calls the number she just gets a busy signal.

That’s life with a ringing ear.

Wow! Clyde is hobbling around after knee surgery and I am gaining appreciation for Home Health Care workers.  He is great about taking care of himself but there are so many things he can’t do right now so he has to call on the reserves  which is, of course, me.

I am having such a hard time getting everything done but that’s life.  I am still so happy that he will be well in a few days and not on disability.  The doctor repaired the tear and said his knee looks great!  He doesn’t have to use a walker.  Yes!!!!!

Also, happy to sell another print of Smith Mountain Lake to a great Florida patron!  I have this one on special at 40% off for a large canvas print! Check out the special below! It ends today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a great patient but things are not too funny right now.  Every once in a while he turns his leg wrong and has quite a bit of pain.  He is not taking the pain medication, just a very strong form of aleve.  He doesn’t want to deal with the side effects of the strong stuff.

Anyway, I did see another cute funny about nurses.  You don’t mess with a nurse.  They are paid to stick needles in people.  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Nothing funny today.  Clyde is still having a lot of hip pain and I am discouraged about a number of things right now.  Maybe I can find something funny elsewhere before I get to a lot of work.

Found something funny regarding the medical profession which is appropriate since we are both trying to figure out what is the best approach for a hip remedy.  Doctor, physical therapy, massage therapy, yoga in a chair, etc.

Picture a guy in a dentist chair about to be worked on.  He asks the dentist if that is a Dentistry for Dummies on his shelf.

Love it!

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As we are all aware, there is a lot of misinformation on the TV.  This, is, of course, nothing new.  The publisher William Randolph Hearst made a lot of money in the 1920’s and ’30s on yellow journalism that created some myths about various groups in this country.

Clyde is becoming more and more aggravated with certain programs on TV.

He said he is afraid to watch them.

Why?

He might break his foot when he kicks the TV.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working away on Mount Clydemore  which is becoming MountClydeless.  It sways to the right and then the left but things from the summit are being taken down and either eliminated or reassigned.

A lot of his naturalist records are being recorded on Cornell  and other sites where he hopes the information will be of use.

This room  looks like something you would see at a recycling station when it is full and people just leave their stuff so they don’t have to take it home again.

It used to bother me but considering all the important information that is all over the place, it doesn’t bother me now.

I will shout a big YES if it is straightened out!
