I am pleased to present my latest impasto oil painting!  This one came together so well I could pinch myself but I don’t like pain. 

This is definitely my most complex painting so far.  Every square inch is an explosion of color and texture and my joy comes right through every brushstroke!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is not interested in writing novels or humorous books. Poetry is his thing but every once in a while I tease him about writing a book. 

Since he is such a curmudgeon I said he should write a book called The Stupidity of Everything.  He said that would take 5000 pages for the first sentence. 

Now that’s a curmudgeon deluxe!

I have been doing my Happy Dance today!  I played for Thursday night’s service, Friday night’s service and today’s service but I don’t play next Sunday!  Great to have a break!  As I have said before, I love to play the piano but I don’t like to perform. 

Stage fright is awful.  I thought I was done with the stage when I retired from teaching but somehow I got back on.  Oh well.  I hardly shook at all today so I am getting better at it and I get great compliments from the parishioners!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working diligently to improve his knee with exercises and leg lifts.  He also gets a shot every so often right into the knee which is very expensive. I asked him if it hurts. 

He said the small ones that are administered more often than the big one don’t hurt but the doctor said Insurance will not cover those.  It will cover the one with a big needle.  So, in order to keep the Insurance Company happy Clyde has to be harpooned every six months. 

Yuck.

One great thing about Social Media is that a lot of what I do to keep up with it can be done while I talk on the phone.  Just finished a good conversation with my brother while I got a lot of computer chores done.  

Always like to talk with him about computer stuff.  He has a doctorate in Computer Science so he is not next door to clueless  about this helpful but aggravating device.

Cheers on a Friday!  Good Friday is you celebrate it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 Clyde doesn’t speak Spanish but I  like to practice my Spanish around him because he usually comes up with a funny comment on it. 

I also like to us a little Spanglish now and then.  The other day he asked me when I was leaving to go Line Dancing.

I said around quarter after dos a clock. 

After you had a dose of what? 

I don’t drink booze.  I married you.  Why would I drink booze? 

Why wouldn’t you? 

Ha ha and again, yes Sheldon, that was a sarcastic ha ha.

Fifteen inches of snow!  Wow!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A while back I mentioned I actually put the cheese in the drawer with scissors, tape, rubber bands, etc.  It was there for quite a while before I found it and decided that was one huge senior moment. 

Well, the other day I couldn’t find the lettuce that I was sure I bought with my weekly grocery trip.  I told Clyde to look out.  He may find lettuce in one of the drawers. 

He said to check the computer room. 

Why the computer room? 

Because that is where you are parked most of the time.  Put lettuce in the Google search and it will probably show up. 

How can the lettuce get into a computer? 

Why not?  Computers are sucking up our lives. Maybe it can suck up some lettuce.  

Groan.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

The other day I learned something new about health and wanted to tell Clyde.

There is another reason to keep your weight down other than all the things I have been preaching to you about.

So when people throw rocks at you, you are a harder target to hit?

No, we all know that one.  A doctor has a hard time checking out ovaries if the patient is over weight.

Glad to know.  Last time I checked I didn’t have any ovaries.

Ha ha.  Yes, Sheldon, that was a sarcastic ha ha.

Working hard on my latest Pawleys Island oil painting.  So glad to be back to oils.  The only problem is I am low on paint and a number of the tubes I use are now $50.  Yikes!  Got to sell or I can’t paint.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have said before, Clyde wakes me up from his office at work.  Fun alarm clock!  Lots of times when I answer I say, “Who dat?”  The last time he said an old goat. 

Hey, goats eat things other than food, right? 

Yeah. 

Well, maybe I can get the old goat to eat some of this mess in the computer room? 

I doubt it could take care of all that stuff.  I still think our only hope is to lob a few grenades. 

In other words, the mess stays where it is. 

Yep.

Well, we aren’t snowed in today.  We did get to the store yesterday but it was a creepy crawly ride.  Roads look good today and that is great since I need to get out and check on some stretched canvases.  A patron wants a commission but she would rather not have a frame.  She doesn’t want a large painting so I am going to see what sizes are available here.  I don’t want to have to wait for an order.  Time to get going.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We were snowed in yesterday but the main roads looked good enough in the afternoon for us to get to the store.  While I was making out the list I checked on the nut supply.  Clyde eats a lot of peanuts.  We had plenty.  I said to Clyde we have lots of nuts from the store and nuts all over the house. 

Tell me something I don’t know.
