I am so pleased to back to oils!  Been walking with Clyde and getting Spring inspirations!  The first one is a beautiful New River view from Riverview Park.  I have the first layer done and anxious to get to the second.  Love oil paint!  I am also going to start a pastel portrait soon.  So much to do!  So little time.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde was able to walk up a flight of stairs yesterday without pain!  Yes! His knee is improving so I think I should be able to get a funny out of him.

I told him I was completely dry in regards to funnies.  How do I get wet again?

He said I should go outside in our present deluge, go on down to the river and jump in and tell my jokes to the fish.

Okay, that was a weird one, but it is all I got on a drizzly Monday so I took it.

Great heaven joke on the internet!  A guy is trying to check in but St. Peter tells him he almost made it, but those fish stories and pictures on Facebook. Really?

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working with a sore knee and not joking around much.  I think the funny barometer will rise as the pain decreases.

Anyway, a funny thing happened to me on Facebook the other day that reminded me of a favorite show, The Middle.  A friend sent me a message proclaiming his love for me.  He is always complimenting my artwork so I didn’t want to be harsh.  I thanked him and said I didn’t think he should be saying that to a married woman.

He apologized, said he was married too, and had been hitting the moonshine.  On a favorite episode of The Middle, Frankie tells Mike after a great party that she would like to invite all their friends over for a party.

She sent them emails that night and in the morning when she sobered up and realized she didn’t really want to have a big party, she said, “We need a breathalyzer on that computer!”  Love it! I think that Facebook friend needs one, too.  That wasn’t the first time he had sent me a strange message.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Looking for the Funny Side and They leave a Message….

I am still griping away about the noise in my ear but I don’t think I will cut if off like Van Gogh did.  Pulsatile tinnitus is aggravating but I can stand a constant noise.

Intermittent noises really get to me- like the robin outside my window that keeps banging against its reflection to chase off the robin in the window.  I guess I am going to have to cover the window so the bird can’t see it. Not right now. Studio time is next.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that I am one of many with Pulsatile Tinnitus that isn’t going away I am looking on the funny side.  I saw a great cartoon about it.

A woman tells her doctor that she has a ringing in her ear.  When she ignores it, it leaves a message.  Clyde added and when she calls the number she just gets a busy signal.

That’s life with a ringing ear.

I am going to see the doctor again today about this awful pulsing and tinnitus.  Yesterday it was so much better I thought it was gone and then at 9:00p.m. it got real bad.  I took some Sudafed and woke up this morning with all that noise and I don’t mean All that Jazz like the movie.

I like jazz but this Pulsatile Tinnitus has got to go!  I’m not sure if I should be worried.  You know how the internet is.  It can be nothing or something very serious.  Oh well.  The doctor will know what to do.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, now we know why the peanut butter was eaten off a trap and then later a mouse was caught.  There were two and we got the second one today.  We think they were a couple of brothers, Mo and Schmo.

Mo figured out how to get the food without getting caught and then Schmo came along and was not so lucky.  Anyway, Mo must have slipped up today or there are more!  Oh no!

Clyde is getting better and hopes to get to work tomorrow.  I don’t know.  The knee is still a pain in the knee so I am not sure he can drive for thirty minutes and then put in eight hours.  Oh well.  I guess he can claim victory and retreat after a few hours.  We will see!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Once again we have a visitor we don’t want.  Lots of nasty evidence of a mouse in the kitchen.  The first one we caught with a Have a Heart trap and Clyde took it down to the river.

The second one was caught in the same trap but managed to get out so we used the killer kind.  I was hoping we could get the third one with the Have a Heart trap, but no luck so we will use the killer kind again.

In this case, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing for this mouse.  It has successfully figured out how to avoid the Have a Heart trap so it will pay for that knowledge.  As Clyde says, the more you know the more it comes back to bite you!  Look out Smart Alec!  You will be bit this time.

Well, today was a first.  I am getting more forgetful with age but I have never left the house to mail a painting without the painting.  Argh!  I got to the post office to pick up my mail and just as I was about to go to the shipping service outlet I use, I realized the painting was still in the house.  Yikes!  Beam me up Scottie!  I don’t know where I am any more.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Years ago I was trying to come up with a name for my studio.  I asked Clyde and he thought Towhee Hill would be a good name since there are so many Towhees around here and our house is on a hill.  It is a beautiful bird so I decided that would be a good name.

Lately, both of us have noticed a lot of Towhees at the computer room window where I spend so much time promoting my artwork.

Yesterday I noticed one that just seemed to be staring in the window as I was finishing the work to send out a painting to Montana.

Clyde thinks the bird is looking for his cut. After all, I did use his name.

I thought that was pretty funny and here is another bird joke on the internet.

Irritable owl syndrome.  Back off jerk!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Everyone is on their phone.  The other day Clyde and I were behind a car that was slowly veering off to the left  on a neighborhood rode.  I slowed way down so I wasn’t near the wayward person in case they crashed into a car that was supposed to be in that lane.

A while back I was walking on the Radford Rec track and two girls were walking side by side while staring at their phone.  Not a word between them.

I was told last week that teachers have given up on getting kids to put their phone away.  Now they have some sort of interactive screen that they use with their phones.  Wow!  Glad I retired from teaching.

Anyway, Clyde’s comment was an army from another country could invade ours and no one would notice.  Everyone is on their phone.
