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 was determined today to have a good Wednesday.  I don’t know what it is about Wednesday’s, but things seem to just go wrong.  I am pleased to report this evening that I had a good Wednesday and hope the evening is good, too.

Lots to do but the glasses strand with little tiny fake pearls did not burst all over the kitchen floor and no rants over technology, though the rants can happen any day of the week.  I won’t get into all those other Wednesday irritations that usually occur.  Beautiful day!

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is using weights now to strengthen his knee.  I was real pleased to find an adjustable set so he can take it slow.  Still not getting much humor from him right now. I asked him if he had a funny for my blog and he said he was too pooped out, popped up, blowed up, and busted to come up with a joke.

Well, I guess that is a writer with a sore knee’s way of saying nothing right now.  Saw a great surgery joke online.  In the middle of an operation the doctor tells the nurse to go to Surgery.com and click on the Are you totally lost icon.  The patient hasn’t been put under yet.  YIKES!

Technology has me screaming at times.  I needed to correct something and when I told the person on chat I did not know the number I needed to use  correct the situation, he gave me a link to the same page where I needed that number to correct the situation.

Arggh!  I explained that goof up to the next online chat agent and she rectified the situation but this was after I had gone through a bunch of other online circles that turned into dead ends.  One technology problem can take up way too much time.  Cheers on a Monday!  I need some.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is able to walk more, but every once in a while his knee locks up and he lets out a yell.  I will be so glad when he is better.  He gets another shot today.

When we walk in the park I take my camera.  I never know when I will see something for inspiration.  The last time he asked me if I had my camera and I told him I  wasn’t taking it.

He said we would be sure to see a Big Foot sighting or some paranormal activity that could actually be photographed.

After we had walked for a while I mentioned that we hadn’t seen anything that was weird. He said, oh no?  Look to your right.  I was on the left.  Ha ha!  Yes, you are weird but I have a lot of photographs of you.  Don’t need anymore just yet.  Keep walking.

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.

The guys are out of the house for a while so it is very quiet and I am determined to get my computer work done so I can paint.  I spent thirty minutes with internet service people trying to get messenger back on Facebook.  I did it this time without any cussing or a desire to throw the computer out the window!

You really can teach old dogs new tricks but I still don’t want to learn how to create digital paintings.  Not for me.  Love my oil paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, I am starting off the New Year with our very old computer.  My printer has a mind of its own.  I printed out a photograph with no problem and then when I tried to print out a very short text document it just printed out a blank piece of paper.

Clyde said if it could talk, it would say that’s all for 2017.  Happy New Year!

Let’s see how happy it is when it gets junked.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Crossing Her Fingers and Squatters Rights…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Fourth day of the new year and we are working on an insurance claim for our wind damaged roof.  Our heating system was making a funny noise last night.  I hope we won’t be calling about that.  The noise happened a while back and I called for help and, of course, there was no noise when the repairman arrived, just the aggravation of paying him to come and check so this time I am waiting for it to actually break before I call.  Here’s hoping that does not happen.  The roof problem is enough!chrchsnowscenesmall-1

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Insurance is always a hit or miss thing as we all know.  We are in the process of trying to get our Homeowners Insurance to pay for the wind damage on our roof.  The roof needs to be replaced.  I hope we can get them to come through after all these years of paying them but I have a feeling they will claim it is just wear and tear over the years.

Clyde had a great comment on this situation.  They will probably claim they have proof we are squatters and don’t even own the home.  Love it!  Just a joke.  No offense to insurance agents.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Second day of the new year and there is a puddle in my studio.  Yikes!  A roof repair man came over and informed us that our roof shingles are 20 year shingles so we have been living on borrowed time.  Time to fork out the big bucks for a new roof.  Not the way I wanted to start 2017, but that’s life.  Cheers!  I am going to have to say that a bunch of times to myself.  Drip, drip, drip.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Painting can be such an aggravating experience.   What I want and what I get are not always the same thing.  Actually, as I told my students, you never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you will get close.

I may have mentioned before something a teacher said to me that I think about a lot.

Scraping off paint is a good thing.  It means you are learning something.  The other day I asked Clyde what was the most important thing an artist learns when she scrapes paint off. He replied, not to bang your head against the wall?  No.  The very high cost of paint.

Here’s to a new year and hopefully some great sales.  I live to paint but I can’t take them with me and oil paint is very expensive.
