Lots of work to do on my new pastel portrait of Alan and Sarah!  It will take a long time but I have been wanting to do one for a long time and I finally got a good photo of them to work from.

So I will put on my mask and get to it like Aunt Bea said to Otis on The Andy Griffith show when she was acting as his warden in their home!  Great show!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Not sure, but I think I have mentioned before that people have been telling me for decades that I have lost weight.  I am the same weight I was when I got married with the same measurements so I have often wondered why people are always saying that to me.  I guess I have withered with age.

Just wish they wouldn’t say it with such a big smile.  That implies I needed to lose weight which I don’t think is true.  According to the doctor’s chart my weight is exactly what it should be.  My BMI is on the low end of normal.

Now Clyde is another matter. He is trying to lose some weight to take the pressure off the knee that was injured.  He is losing about a pound a week which is fast enough.  Anyway, he recently received a comment on his weight loss that I have never heard before.  A friend said his clothes are growing on him.

Love it!

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.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

So glad  Zippy the Wonder Mouse is working again!  Clyde said it may just need a new battery. That was it.  I guess that is why it was zooming all over the screen in places I was not pointing to.  It was looking for something to eat.

I know that is ridiculous, but with all my computer adventures it is hard not to think of it as a living creature determined to irritate me within an inch of my sanity.

Oh well, one computer problem at a time. I do believe in evil spirits in the kitchen.  I now have proof.  I placed the one grocery bag with the eggs and light bulbs on the table where there was plenty of room.  When I got back with another bag, it was on the floor with a broken bulb.

Now you know that was some sort of Irritation Demon determined to ruin my day. LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have switched to organic food for the most part.  It won’t keep us from dying but I think our chances of getting cancer from pesticides is greatly reduced.  Not afraid to die.  Terrified of cancer treatment.  Anyway, I bought an ice cream and yogurt machine because I can’t find organic frozen yogurt in the store.

There are great selections for organic ice cream but none for frozen yogurt.  Since I make our bread now, I didn’t really want to do this but I thought I would give it a try.  These devices are great but there is still a lot of work involved, especially with the yogurt maker.

The yogurt has to soak for 2-4 hours on a cloth and then ingredients have to be cooked on a stove and frozen over night.  The machine just kind of shakes it around and then, of course, there is clean up. Anyway, most of the ice cream selections are twice the number of calories of what is in the store.

I tried the lowfat strawberry yogurt and am not happy at all.  I guess it has to be eaten right after it is made.  I froze it and now it takes a chisel to get it out of the container.  Yuck!  The fruit is crunchy with ice and I don’t like the taste at all. I have to leave it out for a full hour before it is soft enough to get out of the box.  Can’t heat it up.

Clyde said I should put it on a rack and buy a bunsen burner.

Ha ha.  I think I will take my chances with store bought frozen yogurt , smart alec.

There is a great joke on the internet about cultured bacteria.  The two bacteria are discussing different operas and which one is the best.  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I looks like Zippy the Wonder Mouse is starting to have problems.  I am beginning to think a computer mouse has a shorter life than a real mouse.  I guess we just need to give it a bath.  It is wandering across the screen and not landing right without a lot of assistance which may confirm the old age theory.

Must have dementia.  I hope we can get it back to the wonder it once was.  The new one that came with our new computer is slow and awkward and I don’t even like the shape of it.  That one is a loser to begin with.

Oh well.  At times like these I like to look for jokes.  There is a great cartoon with a wife asking her husband who is hunched over a computer to help her open a jar.  His response was download and install java.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yes!  Our third lawn mowing contact showed up and did a great job!  He had to take down part of the fence to get his huge mower into our back yard but he put it right back up.  Finally!  I am no longer scared that I will be attacked by deer ticks if I walk in my yard and Big Foot is no where in sight!  He can’t hide behind our grass now.

On to more crazy stuff from the Word Man.  Last night we were talking about bumper stickers.  Neither one of us uses them.  Not sure why.  We just don’t, but I do like to read funny ones.  The word bumper prompted some word play from Clyde.  What do you call a lazy, no-good cat?  A bumpurr.
