Need to practice some Line Dances for Saturday.  We performed this last Saturday and now we will be doing it again this week.  Yikes!  We did well .  The audience was great!    I have to travel to Pulaski for class but the class may be moving to Radford soon.  Oh yes.  That would be great!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still looking for my glasses.  I bought a chain and attached it to the pair I keep in the kitchen.  I keep those on top of the fridge.  It is against the law for them to be put anywhere else.  Well, I broke the law and was just about ready to give up when they showed up on my dresser.

I told Clyde. you know you are hopeless with glasses when you lose the one with the chain attached.  Maybe I should put them on in the morning and not take them off until bed time.  Yikes!  I hate reading glasses but I can’t do without them.

Just saw a cute joke about eye exams.  Santa Claus is in the chair.  The opthmalogist tells Santa he doesn’t care if he puts him on his naughty list, he is still going to dilate his eyes.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Over the years I have thought about that old saying that opposites attract and wondered how Clyde and I got together.  We are so much alike.  I finally realized that we are different in one way.  I am painfully shy and have to put on an act when I am around others so I can talk.  He is not the least bit shy.

I won’t go into all the ways that we are alike except one.  Even though I can organize stuff and he couldn’t organize a pair of shoe laces, we are complete slobs in the way we dress and handle food.

A match made in a pig pen!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Tuesdays we get take out from a great Chinese restaurant that is fantastic at cooking broccoli.  I don’t know what they do but other restaurants don’t compare!

Once in a while it isn’t great but sometimes the broccoli in the stores is a little bitter so there isn’t much they can do about that.

Clyde said maybe it had a hard life and that is why it is bitter.

Argh!  It is a good thing I love puns or my poet husband would have to write himself into a corner and stay there.

Please click on my  latest Youtube! I hope to have a new one soon!

My Line Dance Class has not met for two weeks due to problems so I was very glad to get a call this morning that we will meet tonight!  Love to dance!  I am also taking Yoga which is hard!  I think it is helping to stretch out some stubborn muscles.  The stretching exercises I have been doing for decades aren’t enough.  I think Yoga will do the trick!

Cheers!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Lately Clyde has been saying some pretty wacky things which is typical.  As usual, they are funny, at least to me.  I love word play and he is great at it.  I don’t know about other writers, but this one is fun to live with.  He keeps me laughing.

Anyway, the wild things he has been saying prompted me to say he had better watch out or he will land in a Loony Bin. 

His response was he was already there and they threw him out.  Hopeless case.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The Bird Man is looking forward to the Bioblitz this weekend!  Check out the information and join this great environmental effort!

Rocky Knob BioBlitz September 18th/19th, 2015

The Blue Ridge Parkway will soon be holding its first BioBlitz in almost 15 years and would love to have you join us for our next one. A BioBlitz is a 24-hour biological inventory of a designated area conducted by people with a wide variety of specialities and experiences. BioBlitzes have been used on the Parkway and elsewhere to get a better idea of what plants and animals are at a site, and to allow site managers to better manage these important natural resources.

 Our job is to protect the natural resources in our park. Unless we know what’s out there, it’s awfully hard to protect it. Your species lists will tell us what we have and what to be concerned about.

 

 It will be fun!!! Normally fun isn’t supposed to be a justification for a scientific endeavor, yet we’re looking forward to getting in the field with old acquaintances and making new friends. What could be better than walking through the woods with fellow naturalists looking for plants and animals?

 

The BioBlitz will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2015 and continue until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, though people are welcome to begin anytime Friday morning if they are want to get an early start. On-site registration will start at noon at the Rocky Knob Picnic Area pavilion at Milepost 169. Activities for schools will also begin Friday morning. We will hold the BioBlitz rain or shine.

The BioBlitz will be held in and around Rock Castle Gorge in the Rocky Knob area of the Parkway near Floyd (VA). The approximately 3,600-acre site is located along the Parkway between Milepost 165 near Tuggles Gap and Milepost 174 at Rock Castle Gap. This area includes mature second-growth forests, seeps and streams, wetlands, successional forests and agricultural fields.

We are inviting specialists, naturalists and nature lovers to join us for all or part of the 24-hour, 2-day event. Participants will be provided a map and information about the area and then set free to inventory anywhere in the site. There may be opportunity for non-specialists to join specialists with their fieldwork.

) Do not travel alone! Let someone know where your group will be and when you will get back.
) Only park vehicles in safe locations off of roads and be sure to follow all traffic laws. Pull out of the

way for faster moving vehicles.
) Use care hiking on slippery and uneven surfaces. Do not exceed your capabilities. ) Watch where you place your hands if you search crevices rocks, under logs, etc.
) Carry a first-aid kit and other safety gear with you.
) Weather can rapidly change at this time of year; be prepared for inclement weather.

It will help the Blue Ridge Parkway manage its natural resources.
It’s a great chance to meet face-to-face with people you’ve talked to on the phone or whose publications

you’ve read. Spend the day with your colleagues. Develop new personal and professional relationships.
It’s a chance to learn something about your local area. There’s more to the Parkway than just the road!

Come on out and see what’s out here!

 It will be fun!!!

Please turn in a list of what you find, or let us know when you plan to share your findings, before leaving the BioBlitz. Information we would like are species names, locations where they were found, numbers observed, etc. We will happily accept copies of photographs of what you find. Collecting any specimen is only allowed with a permit issued by the Blue Ridge Parkway. Please apply for permits early https://irma.nps.gov/rprs/Investigator/Index . We will have a closing session at 2:30 Saturday afternoon where everyone can share their findings.

Registration can be completed ahead of the event at http://goo.gl/forms/RC9F4fOnVs . Or you can register on-site at the Rocky Knob Picnic Area pavilion at Milepost 169 beginning at noon on Friday. Contact Bob Cherry, Blue Ridge Parkway Wildlife Biologist, by email at Bob_Cherry@nps.gov if you have any questions.

The Blue Ridge Parkway, in linking the Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, is dedicated to enhancing the outstanding scenic and recreational qualities of the corridor that it traverses; conserving unimpaired its significant natural and cultural resources, and promoting in perpetuity the public enjoyment and appreciation of the central and southern Appalachian Mountains.

Blue Parkway Artist can easily get out of a Chair…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

The Country Line Dancers are at it again!  We will be performing this evening at another Assisted Living Center!  We perform at many different locales but the Retirement Home ones are special. 

The other day I watched a poor elderly woman struggle to get out of a chair.  I was going to help her but I thought I had better not.  She didn’t ask for help from the staff and probably wanted to do it by herself. 

Performances at Retirement Homes always make me appreciate all I have right now.  I try hard to be thankful each day since the day will come when simple actions are very difficult. I hope to keep  on painting, playing the piano, and dancing until I drop! 

Cheers!
