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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Presents Stage Two and Keeping Zippy…

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Well, I am finally ready to finish this blog and send it out.  So many things to do today that it got lost in the shuffle.  I am pleased to present the second stage of my latest New River painting! Prints are not available just yet but I wanted to show it.  I am pleased with this stage and will probably not change it much in the final version.

 

Riverview Spring   Original 12″ x 9″ Oil painting $236

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A while back I talked about our awful mouse that kept clicking off and ate batteries like they were made of cheese. Then Clyde bought a great mouse that I named Zippy, the wonder mouse!  It zooms all over the screen, hardly ever needs a battery and still works like new!  Yesterday we spent most of the day, with help, setting up a new computer, printer, and scanner.

The Radford Public Library can breath a sigh of relief.  I won’t be getting prints there anymore and complaining about how dark they are.  I told one of the clerks and she probably told the others so they could do a celebration dance.  Just kidding! Well, who knows?

Anyway, the new stuff is great, except for the mouse. It is slow, awkward, and I just don’t like it so I turned it off and turned Zippy back on.  Great to have an excellent little rodent!  If Zippy ever acts up we will get Zippy 2!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Okay, the guy that is going to take care of our lawn that really does look like it needs a hay baler still has not showed up.

In Wednesday’s  blog I said I had mentioned to Clyde that it is looking scary out there and he said maybe Big Foot it lurking behind the grass.  I said I thought I saw him.

Yesterday he said maybe Big Foot could do the job.

Today I asked him if Big Foot was going to chew the grass down and he said he texted him.  Waiting for Big Foot to mow our lawn.  How many people can say that?

Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde’s knee is hurting less and less while our grass looks like it needs a baler.  He doesn’t want me to do it.  Not sure why.  I think I could get it done but he would rather hire someone until his knee is better.

He called me this morning to see if his lunch was still in the fridge.  It was.  Then he mentioned the tree guys  are coming today to chop down some trees.

He also mentioned he was getting someone to mow the lawn.  I said good, it’s scary out there.  He laughed and said maybe Big Foot is lurking behind the grass.

I think I saw him! Yikes!

Saw a cute Big Foot t-shirt on Pinterest.  Big Foot doesn’t believe in you, either.

Love it!

Love the weather right now.  Not too cold or hot.  Just right.  We are in for a deluge this weekend so it is time to step away from the computer and get outside.  Clyde and I walk very slowly until his knee is better.  I hope I will get a good report when he gets home.  The progress varies.  Hope every one has a great weekend!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still having trouble with his knee in spite of exercise and weights.  It will be a long time before he is better but you have to give him an “A” for effort!  His sense of humor is coming back and I am getting some goofy answers to my questions.

Yesterday I called him and opened with,

You know how we all change a lot as we age.

No, I am just an older monkey.

Well, I have changed a lot.  When I was young I wasn’t that interested in History and now I am fascinated by it.  I want to read all that whaling history in Moby Dick.  Where is it?

Who knows?

Got it from the library and now those parts of the book don’t seem to take up as much of the book as I thought they did.

There is a great Moby Dick funny on the internet.  Herman Melville is puzzled about a piece of paper that he is holding.  I white whale is staring at him and saying it is a restraining order, idiot.

I am starting to catch up on some of my computer work as Clyde hobbles around the house.  His knee is getting better every day and he should be back to work next week.  That is a whole lot better than six weeks with no weight bearing on that leg!  So glad it was just a tear!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both have advanced degrees but the other day we both decided we must have degrees in Stupidology.  While he was taking a shower in the bathroom with a shower/tub combo we were talking about how great it would be to have one of those showers that you walk in and sit down.

Then it occurred to me that we could have been using the bathroom in the bed room that just has a shower stall.  We couldn’t believe how stupid we had been.  For days he has been painfully lifting his leg over the bath tub when he could have been walking into the shower.

What a couple of Stupidologists!
