Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting the Blahs and Stupid Question…

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.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde likes to watch super hero dramas.  Some of them are not that good in his opinion but he still watches them when he is too tired to read and just wants to relax.

Just for fun I mentioned to him that he should be the next super hero on TV.

He said people are not ready for a crazy superhero spouting poetry as he flies through the air trying to save the world.

It was just a thought!

I am so pleased to be meeting friends for dinner tonight!  I haven’t done that in a long time and I always love to get out of cooking dinner.  I am not much of a cook and all of Clyde’s restrictions make fancy things out of the question.  I would probably do well in England.  I like plain food.  No offense to any Brits but that is what we hear about their cuisine.

I will get to paint.  I am real excited about my current Blue Ridge Parkway paintings!  They are done in stages based on photographs that I take.  I always put so much of myself into them that they are quite different from what I started with. I can reproduce photographs but that is not what my art is about.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Had a great Yoga class yesterday!  I am amazed at the changes in my body.  When I started Yoga classes I kept looking at the clock.  I wanted it to be over.  Now I am not yelling in my head that easy pose is anything but easy and no, I cannot sit on my feet.  Sitting on my feet was next to impossible when I started.

I am not into the religious aspects of Yoga, so I just don’t mention that as the teacher really is into the chanting and meditating.  I have respect for it but I just don’t agree which brings me to a cute yoga joke.  A woman is talking to her therapist and she tells him that Yoga has taught her to stretch rather than jump to conclusions.

I told that one to Clyde and he said sounds good, just don’t stretch the truth.

Love it!  No offense to serious Yoga students, but as my teacher often says, it is so good to laugh.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A lot of people believe there is a sock eating monster in the dryer.  How can one sock disapear? When I was in school an Art student made a great claymation video of the monster poking its head in the dryer for socks.

 

I think there is an eye glasses monster that steals my glasses.  I don’t want to get one of those chains but I may have to.  I only allow them to be in one of two places so that’s how I know there is a thief.

I mentioned this to Clyde and he said if that’s true then there are a lot of strange little sock creatures wearing broken glasses running around the house looking for hiding places.

I’m sure he is right!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

During our visit to see relatives we had some very interesting chats with relatives.  As usual, I learned more about computers from my brother who has a doctorate in Computer Science while I am maybe a little better than a chimp randomly hitting the keys.

My younger sister reminded me of a saying of Dad’s that my Mother also repeated on occasion.

When it comes to our mental health, we are all walking a tight rope.

I would like to think my tight rope is over a lake and once in a while I belly flop but I get right back on.

Clyde said if his were over a lake there would be a herd of elephants waiting for him when he slipped off.

Maybe his is a few feet off of one of the mountain ranges he loves and where he is happiest.  Now, that’s a nice thought from the old lady.  Pat that back!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Three times a week I like to include some crazy thing The Word Man says and sometimes I am ahead of schedule with quips, but today I didn’t have anything.  We have been having a lot of political discussions and we are both so concerned over the upcoming presidential election that it is hard to joke about it.

When Clyde called from work this morning I asked him if he had anything funny for my blog and he didn’t.  Later he called and said he walked around for fifteen minutes trying to think of something but no funny came to mind. 

Oh well, there was something cute on Facebook the other day.  The caption under a dirty rear view window was, My window is not Dirty.  That’s my dog’s nose art.  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I like to walk in Wild Wood Park as much as we can.  I was pleased we got there today.  Often times I bring a bag with my camera and my glasses in case I see a butterfly on a flower that would make a good photograph to add to my wildlife gallery on my website.  I only have a few photographs in that gallery.

I told Clyde to be on the look out for good photo possibilities and he looked puzzled and asked me if I had my camera.

I told him I was always packing.  Camera, not gun, of course.  I have decided that if I don’t have my camera Tom Hanks will probably walk right through the park. I wear something with deep pockets and put the camera in one pocket and my glasses in the other one.

He didn’t show up and I didn’t get a single wildlife photo.  Oh well, back to the easel.  I love all mediums but photography is lowest on my list. No disrespect to photographers!  It is a beautiful medium.  I do have some good ones, though.
