Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Dragging and Writing on the Wall…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Wow!  $728 to get the Prius fixed!  Time to buy a new car.  Dragging on a Friday.  Oh well.  As a friend said long ago, “What is the use of complaining?  Someone will just complain louder.  Time to cheer up.

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!

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!

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Looked at the Snow and Archive Eruption….


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Way to much to to today and I have a meeting with my son’s supervisors at 2:00.  Yikes!  Today should be a slightly lazy day since the guys are back at work and I have the house to myself.  I never stop but I was looking forward to taking a little time off to stare at the snow.  I just looked out the window, so that’s it.  Back to work.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, I like to think the reason our computer room is a disaster with all of Clyde’s archives is because he is a genius.  I read somewhere that geniuses are in to so many things they can’t possibly keep it all organized.

Okay, let’s go with that.  I call it Mount Clydemore and every once in a while it erupts!  Clyde has been working hard the last few days to try to straighten it out.  Good luck!

Anyway, there was an hilarious joke on Twitter  that we both got a big kick out of.

God gives his biggest battles to his greatest soldiers.

He must have me confused with Rambo.

Love it!  Clyde may need a Rambo to straighten out his mess.

Trying to catch up on paper work and get all my other work done, too.  I am pleased with my two latest New York Skyline paintings that include the Statue of Liberty!  Love my Skyline Beauty series and will be doing more of them.  Need to order more oil paint as I have a number of ideas for large oil paintings.  Got to get moving!   I seem to be attached to this computer but there are other rooms in the house.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday we met with an Insurance agent regarding the hole in our roof due to wind damage.  The contractor repaired it and said we should file for a new roof since there is so much wind damage including another hole over the car port.

Clyde is a very nice, accommodating guy – a little too nice so the day before yesterday I told him I needed to mention something he probably already knew.

Pack my bag and get out of here?

No.  Don’t tell the Insurance agent that it is all our fault and we are sorry he had to make the trip to check it out.

Okay, he wouldn’t say that but he really is a nice guy – a little too nice.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Lots to do today! I don’t make News Years Resolutions but I decided, just this once, to make an End of the Year resolution.  I am way behind in my paper work so I am trying to get that done before 2017.  I made Clyde a committee of one to handle one part of it that we need some kind of bookkeeping book for.  He is much better at buying things than I am.  Here’s to the 31st and may the clerical force be with us!
