I am fighting the Monday blahs and trying to get a lot of things done.  I just found out that I don’t have any bubble wrap and I need to mail a painting out soon so time to get to the store.

I am getting some very irritating messages on Facebook that are probably from scammers.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of automatic scammer alarm system?  I realize that is a ridiculous idea but I am trying to think of something funny to cheer me up.

Oh well.  Yoga tonight and Line Dance tomorrow!  Yes!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Usually, on Saturday or Sunday we go out to a fast food place and I always get a chicken sandwich but I never get the fries.  For a number of reasons I don’t eat fried food and if you ever try one of those fries cold you know how bad they taste.  I’ll bet there are other things in them besides potato.

Sometimes I get the baked potato at Wendys.  Saturday, we went to Wendys and I just got the sandwich and when we got home I wished I had gotten the potato.  I was still hungry so I decided to boil a potato.

The potato was a little bigger than I wanted so I asked Clyde if he could eat the rest.  His answer was, do pigs oink?  Okay, stupid question. Let’ move on.

I am on a roll!  I have completed another Skyline Beauty painting and the first stage of another Suggestion painting! I am especially pleased with the new Chicago painting.  The soft modulation of color really drawings the viewer in. I really do live to paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde has been trying a number of natural remedies for his sore hip and knee with no improvement.  The other day I suggested acupuncture.  He said that was a great idea.  Maybe it will hurt so much he will jump up and run after the person that put the pins in and the pain in his body would disappear!  Okay, no acupuncture.

 

None of the remedies have worked because the doctor visit revealed torn cartilage in his knee which is causing the pain there and radiating out to his hip.  The hip is fine.  Just pain by association with an injured knee.  He will have to have an operation.

Yikes!  I wonder how much will be covered by insurance.  A couple of dollars?  We can only hope!

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.

Too much to do all the time.  Not looking forward to shopping for a car.  Clyde has pretty much decided which one we should get so we just need to narrow down the details.  I always let him decide on big purchases.  I will always go for  a low price tag.  He buys quality items.  I buy things that will break.  Glad one of us has some buying sense.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is doing a little better with his hip problem and the funnies are starting to fly again.  I read about a joint remedy that involves drinking plain gelatin the first thing in the morning.  It is prepared the night before and left out to swell. I’m sure plain gelatin tastes awful.

I told him I would put a cover over it so the rats don’t get in.  He said I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t any taste to it.  Ha ha. We don’t really have rats.  This morning I asked him how it tasted.

He said it was a party. He almost lit candles.

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching the Rain and Diet Humor…

Lots of rain for days and days.  I don’t mind rainy days.  You don’t have to wear sun glasses and I like the sound of it but I do think after a while it affects my mood.  Time to think of some sunny thoughts as I get all my work done!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

There are a lot of funny names for diets. One of my favorites is the Seafood diet.  I see food and I eat it.  Clyde’s sister came up with one that I hadn’t heard before.  She has neuropathy and has to take medication for severe pain in her legs and, of course, has a very restricted diet.

She is on The Spit it out Diet.  If it tastes good, spit it out.  Yikes!  So far, in spite of my love of sugar I don’t have diabetes and hope to keep it that way.  I tried to give up refined sugar twice.  Can’t do it.

I think we should all take a minute to pause and give all diets a big raspberry!  None of us are getting out of this alive and I am not giving up my sweets, but I do believe we should try to have a reasonably good diet so we won’t be miserable while we are here.

Cheers and where is my Snickers?

Please click on my latest Youtube!

One more day to work on my end of the year resolution and I probably won’t make it.  I got the easy half done but going through my two huge file folders and making all those decisions on what we absolutely have to keep and what we can trash is not going to happen in 2016.  On well, I got closer to keeping my end of the year resolution than any New Years resolutions I have made in the past.  I think I will try this again at the end of 2017.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both love music. I play my piano every day and I am actually trying to write something.  He plays the guitar very well and has written some music, but, for some reason, he can’t sing.  He isn’t tone deaf, he just misses some of the notes.

In his own words, if he had to sing for his supper he wouldn’t get beans.
