I am really in the art wrestling stage with my latest painting from The Peaks of Otter resort.  It almost hit the trashcan stage but I managed to rescue it this morning.  Now it is finally coming along.  As I have said many times, if I could get want I want out of a painting without some aggravation it would be boring.  This one has been ANYTHING but boring!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that the house next door has been empty for quite a while, the ground hogs have moved in.  They live under the old shed and visit our back yard all the time to get produce from our fruit trees.  They have an under the fence tunnel that they use to go back and forth.  When they are not taking our fruit they are sunning themselves in the empty house’s backyard.

I see them all the time when I park. They give me dirty looks and I dare you to do anything about our theft looks constantly.  I am starting to consider them to be Varmint Cong like in Caddy Shack and it is really tempting to light fire crackers under the shed when they are not looking but we will figure out another way.

Clyde said they probably could care less about their shadows but they are always looking for ours while they steal us blind.  I think Varmint Cong is a good name for them.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I get a ridiculous number of scams practically every day.  I am always a little worried when I see that I have messages on Messenger.  I should be glad to see that  I have messages but I get a lot of scams  so I am very wary about what is there. 

Today I received an email thanking me for ordering something that I didn’t order.  The thank you made my mind reel with sarcastic replies. 

It is tempting to answer the email with,

Thank you for sending me another scam!  I have only received five today and three of them shut down my computer.  I don’t know what happened to the other two! 

A few weeks ago one of them blew up the computer and it fell through the floor after one click on a link which is why we have a new computer!  We can’t wait to see what happens next! 

Keep those scams coming!

The Word Man and I are looking forward to the book launch of Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse on June 16th at Christ Lutheran!  His launch is one of a series of literature readings that are hosted by Christ Lutheran. 

Clyde came up with the name Rough Draft Coffee House.  We celebrate creativity in a coffee house atmosphere. 

The name that Clyde came up with goes great with a writers joke I saw on the internet this morning.  Why are writers always cold?  They are surrounded by rough drafts!  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still griping about Towhees in Wildwood Park.  To think, I named my studio after that beautiful, but irritating bird.  I really get tired of hearing, “Drink your tea”, over and over again on our walks.

I asked Clyde if it had another song.  He said it didn’t have one.  It was a one-hit wonder long ago and is trying desperately to make a come back.  I guess I just have to learn to love it. 

I found a joke that applies to this bird. 

Why did the bird go to the hospital?  To get tweetment. 

Maybe if a Towhee got tweetment it could come up with another song.  LOL!

Glad to back to oils and I am very happy with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge painting!   I love oil paint the best, but I get more uptight when I paint in this medium.  A lot of painters consider watercolors to be the most difficult painting medium.  I can’t agree.  I consider oils to be the most difficult, but I love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde and I take walks at Wildwood Park the towhees are always yelling “drink your tea” over and over again.  It is a pretty bird call but it can get monotonous.   The other day  I read in a blog that drinking tea actually fights the bacteria in our mouths which, of course, helps with tooth decay. 

When I told Clyde that, he had a whacko theory as to why towhees keep on telling us to drink our tea.  Maybe they once had teeth and are now telling everybody to drink their tea or else!  Now that’s a weird one, even for The Bird Man!

Well, my ipad has bit the dust.  The store clerk said you can’t replace the battery.  Once it is gone, that is the end of the ipad.  That is a sorry end for a device I paid a lot of money for and hardly ever used. 

I will try getting a different cable and see if that works but I will probably have to get a new ipad which I doubt I will do.  I will just use a laptop when I need something in my studio.  Time to get in there. 

It really is a dreary Monday, so I need to work so I can cheer up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, the cat problem is almost over!  Two of our neighbors wanted a kitten and they got them before they went feral.  There is one left that they are trying to coax away from the mother.  According to Clyde, they are about the age when the mother will push them away so this works out right for the neighbors and the cats. 

Not sure what will become of the mother.  I called Animal Control but they have not responded yet.  Oh well.  The kittens are so adorable that I told Clyde I wished we could have a cat and Alan and I wouldn’t have allergic reactions and the cat would be no trouble and I wouldn’t be the one to take care of it. 

I was waiting for the “Careful what you wish for admonition”, but I got a weird Clyde response instead.  Watch out for what you wish for.   You may need a 42 page document that guarantees the wish won’t bite you! 

That sounds about right.  LOL!

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.
