Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have a studio visit today so, of course, yesterday we had to bull doze the whole house!  Clyde shoved a lot of his stuff that was sitting on the bed in our so-called guest room, that is really a computer room, into a closet.  Wow, what a stuffed closet.

Before we started I told him I didn’t want the patron to see such a messy dump.

Well, I won’t be here.

I was talking about the house, not you.

Oh.

Another Thursday, Another Video!


I am determined to get more of my work out on Youtube so today is the day I designate for that chore.  It is fun, but it is time consuming so I have been scurrying around like a bunny! 

I think I’ll go get a carrot!

Mountain Lake in Giles County was the setting for the hit movie, Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze!

I found another paranormal tale about a wild man in The Blue Ridge Mountains!

 

The Scalawag from Blue Mountain

Jimmie Lee had heard tales about the legendary Big Foot or Sasquatch but never thought he would come into contact with the beast.  He was twelve years old and staying with his uncle and two cousins for the summer.

One morning his uncle told the boys he saw huge  prints near his apple orchard.     Jimmie and his cousins decided to pitch a tent to see if they could see Scalawag!  They were having fun and when the campfire got low they decided to go to sleep at around 11:00.  About thirty minutes later, the narrator heard a strange hissing sound.  He woke his cousin up and they both heard limbs cracking outside.

They saw with the flashlight a huge mammal like creature with long red fur eating apples in a crouched position. The creature turned and stared at them and they could see a strange human-like face with a pointy head. The face was the only part of the creature that did not have fur and was an orange-brown color. It let out a screeching howl and ran off into the woods.

The next day they saw the huge prints with toes in the ground.  The uncle and aunt have heard the noise of the animal since this event and Jimmie Lee swears he has seen Sasquatch!

I got this story from About.com Paranormal Phenomena online

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have always been nervous about spiders since one of my childhood friends said she had a black widow spider in her garage.   I stayed out of there!  I am not that scared of them but I don’t know one from the next so I am cautious.

The other day there was a small black spider in the computer room so I asked The Bird Man who is also very knowledgeable about insects to look at it.  I yelled from the room that there was a spider in the room and would he come check it out.

He asked me if it had it’s own web.

I said I didn’t know.  Maybe it is renting it.

The Word Man was not amused.

I hope you enjoy my mountain paintings by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway Legends and Spring Bird Sightings

The Blue Ridge mountains and the Smoky mountains are the oldest ranges in the United States so there are a lot of myths and legends about them.  I posted one yesterday and thought it would be fun to post more!

I love legends!

Check out the brass plaque near the Walasi-Yi Center where the Appalachian Trail passes through the center’s breezeway, it’s otherworldly to say the least.

The plaque states; In Cherokee mythology the mountain (Blood Mountain) was one of the homes of the Nunnehi or Immortals, the “People Who Live Anywhere,” a race of Spirit People who lived in great townhouses in the highlands of the old Cherokee Country. One of these mythical townhouses stood near Lake Trahlyta. They were a friendly people that often brought lost hunters and wanders to their townhouses for rest and care before guiding them back to their homes.

 

I got this legend from Blue Ridge Highlander.com

Life with the Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

My Bird Man is pleased to see the chimney swifts return!  There were two recent sitings on Bent Mountain.

Here is some information on this beautiful bird from the Cornell online publication – All About Birds.

A bird best identified by silhouette, the smudge-gray Chimney Swift nimbly maneuvers over rooftops, fields, and rivers to catch insects. Its tiny body, curving wings, and stiff, shallow wingbeats give it a flight style as distinctive as its fluid, chattering call.

This enigmatic little bird spends almost its entire life airborne. When it lands, it can’t perch—it clings to vertical walls inside chimneys or in hollow trees or caves. This species has suffered sharp declines as chimneys fall into disuse across the continent.
