I am really in the art wrestling stage with my latest painting from The Peaks of Otter resort.  It almost hit the trashcan stage but I managed to rescue it this morning.  Now it is finally coming along.  As I have said many times, if I could get want I want out of a painting without some aggravation it would be boring.  This one has been ANYTHING but boring!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that the house next door has been empty for quite a while, the ground hogs have moved in.  They live under the old shed and visit our back yard all the time to get produce from our fruit trees.  They have an under the fence tunnel that they use to go back and forth.  When they are not taking our fruit they are sunning themselves in the empty house’s backyard.

I see them all the time when I park. They give me dirty looks and I dare you to do anything about our theft looks constantly.  I am starting to consider them to be Varmint Cong like in Caddy Shack and it is really tempting to light fire crackers under the shed when they are not looking but we will figure out another way.

Clyde said they probably could care less about their shadows but they are always looking for ours while they steal us blind.  I think Varmint Cong is a good name for them.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I get a ridiculous number of scams practically every day.  I am always a little worried when I see that I have messages on Messenger.  I should be glad to see that  I have messages but I get a lot of scams  so I am very wary about what is there. 

Today I received an email thanking me for ordering something that I didn’t order.  The thank you made my mind reel with sarcastic replies. 

It is tempting to answer the email with,

Thank you for sending me another scam!  I have only received five today and three of them shut down my computer.  I don’t know what happened to the other two! 

A few weeks ago one of them blew up the computer and it fell through the floor after one click on a link which is why we have a new computer!  We can’t wait to see what happens next! 

Keep those scams coming!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The Word Man and I are looking forward to the book launch of Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse on June 16th at Christ Lutheran!  His launch is one of a series of literature readings that are hosted by Christ Lutheran. 

Clyde came up with the name Rough Draft Coffee House.  We celebrate creativity in a coffee house atmosphere. 

The name that Clyde came up with goes great with a writers joke I saw on the internet this morning.  Why are writers always cold?  They are surrounded by rough drafts!  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still griping about Towhees in Wildwood Park.  To think, I named my studio after that beautiful, but irritating bird.  I really get tired of hearing, “Drink your tea”, over and over again on our walks.

I asked Clyde if it had another song.  He said it didn’t have one.  It was a one-hit wonder long ago and is trying desperately to make a come back.  I guess I just have to learn to love it. 

I found a joke that applies to this bird. 

Why did the bird go to the hospital?  To get tweetment. 

Maybe if a Towhee got tweetment it could come up with another song.  LOL!

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.

Wow! Clyde is hobbling around after knee surgery and I am gaining appreciation for Home Health Care workers.  He is great about taking care of himself but there are so many things he can’t do right now so he has to call on the reserves  which is, of course, me.

I am having such a hard time getting everything done but that’s life.  I am still so happy that he will be well in a few days and not on disability.  The doctor repaired the tear and said his knee looks great!  He doesn’t have to use a walker.  Yes!!!!!

Also, happy to sell another print of Smith Mountain Lake to a great Florida patron!  I have this one on special at 40% off for a large canvas print! Check out the special below! It ends today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a great patient but things are not too funny right now.  Every once in a while he turns his leg wrong and has quite a bit of pain.  He is not taking the pain medication, just a very strong form of aleve.  He doesn’t want to deal with the side effects of the strong stuff.

Anyway, I did see another cute funny about nurses.  You don’t mess with a nurse.  They are paid to stick needles in people.  Love it!

I am really on the tread mill lately.  Like my father-in-law would say, I am like a three legged bear.  Making a lot of tracks and getting nowhere.  Hopefully I can get most of what I need to do finished and still have time to paint.

I wish painting could be number one but art promotion is number one.  So much time on the internet I am beginning to think there are invisible chords coming from the screen that are wrapped around my fingers.

Puppet to a machine.  Oh well, I can cut the strings some of the time but they just seem to reattach themselves.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Tomorrow is the day!  Knee operation and 24 hour patient care duty for me.  Not looking forward to this.  I saw a cute joke on the internet about age.

I’m not old.  I just need some WD-40.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just put a little of that on your knee instead of costly surgery?  Oh well.  Clyde bites the pain bullet tomorrow.  I bite the nurse bullet and we both bite the finance bullet.

I wish I could shoot old age without dying.
