Well, we went walking early since rain was predicted for the afternoon and nothing but sunshine. I could have gone to the lake, instead I am working away in my house.  I never know when to quit. 

I just don’t have the relaxed nature that a lot of people have.  I wish I did sometimes but, like my Dad, I like to keep very busy and there is always more to do than I can get done.  Still, I wish I would just cool it once in a while. 

The store, dinner, and dishes are next.  I better get going!

I am real pleased with the second stage of Paris Joy!  This may be the last layer.  Not sure. Prints available of all stages!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Right now we are getting next to no reception on our TVs that are not hooked up to cable.  I am not about to pay for three and we are wondering if the antennae is messed up in some way.  Ever since the digital takeover we have gotten varying amounts of reception but this is ridiculous. 

I am always hearing the squirrels running across that part of the roof and then taking a nose dive for the tree in front of my window in the computer room.  I am wondering if they have damaged the antennae in some way. 

Clyde thinks the reason we get a little reception is that some of the time a rat or squirrel is holding it up in hopes of getting some cheese or nuts for helping out.  If they would hold it up all day I would be glad to sling some cheese and nuts up there.

Maybe when we get our ancient roof replaced the roofer can check it out.  Hope he doesn’t trip over a squirrel.

I decided I could beat the afternoon thunderstorm problem by going to Clayter Lake this morning!  As soon as I got there everyone was called out of the water as one of the lifeguards heard thunder.  I didn’t hear anything at all but we waited and after a while they let us in. 

Yea!  Love to swim in the lake and summers fly like rockets!  Here is the start of my latest Peaks of Otter painting!  Lots of ideas from our recent visit!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I saw a cute joke about retirement the other day that I’ll bet Clyde will understand soon when he retires.  The only bad thing about retirement is you never get a day off! 

Wow, that really applies to me!  I thought when I retired from teaching at Radford University I would have all the time I needed to work on my artwork and promote it. 

Well, I can honestly say I am working much harder at my artwork now and always wishing for more time.  Maybe I should go back to teaching so I can get some rest.  LOL

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 I don’t have a funny from The Word Man today but I found a good one on the internet for the Fourth that sounds like something he would say! 

Why did the duck say bang?  Because he thought he was a firequacker. 

Don’t groan too loud. 

Today we celebrate!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I finally have a convert!  People have been asking me how I have kept my weight down my whole adult life.  First they ask if I am just naturally slim which is not at all true.  I had to fight weight gain as a child and teenager.  I went to the library and read a book on nutrition and figured out where I was going wrong. 

Now I know I must eat a balanced diet and COUNT CALORIES.  No one has believed me until now.  Clyde is losing about a pound a week and is not HUNGRY or MISERABLE!  I am so proud of him.  I’m sure the weight loss will help his knee problem. 

The other day I told him he was really losing it.  I let out a big laugh when I saw his face and, of course, said I mean weight, not mind! 

I saw a cute weight joke on the internet.  A woman is weighing herself in a towel.  Her response is, “This towel must be very heavy.”

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 As I have mentioned before, I like to watch Judge Judy.  There have been times that I wanted to lay some people out that were doing me wrong but if I did let them have it, my circumstances would probably have been worse so I kept quiet.  I love to watch her lay people out that are wronging someone. 

You do have to wonder about the intelligence level of a lot of the people that are on the show. Clyde thinks the show scouts people that are not too bright so the show will be entertaining.   He has a theory.  He thinks they are given the following questionnaire. 

1.  Are you stupid? 

2.  Are you very stupid?

3. Would you complain to the police that the cocaine you bought is no good? 

If you answered yes to no. 1 you are on the waiting list.  If you answered yes to number two you are on the short list.  If you answered yes to number three then we will pick you up within the hour.  You are on the next show.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Haven’t heard a funny from The Word Man lately, he is too busy trying to get to the remote fast enough to click off people running for office and ranting his usual rant about politics.  Since he is also The Bird Man, I like to ask him about birds when we go walking. 

I am not up on migration patterns and oftentimes I see a bird I don’t think I know and then find out from him that it is one I do know.  They sure look different from different angles and in different light. 

I did see a cute bird joke about migration on the internet.  The picture is of two birds covered in snow on a tree branch.  One of them says to the other, “I told you we should have migrated.”

Glad to back to oils and I am very happy with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge painting!   I love oil paint the best, but I get more uptight when I paint in this medium.  A lot of painters consider watercolors to be the most difficult painting medium.  I can’t agree.  I consider oils to be the most difficult, but I love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde and I take walks at Wildwood Park the towhees are always yelling “drink your tea” over and over again.  It is a pretty bird call but it can get monotonous.   The other day  I read in a blog that drinking tea actually fights the bacteria in our mouths which, of course, helps with tooth decay. 

When I told Clyde that, he had a whacko theory as to why towhees keep on telling us to drink our tea.  Maybe they once had teeth and are now telling everybody to drink their tea or else!  Now that’s a weird one, even for The Bird Man!
